Leaks suggest Galaxy S21 will be a fine-tuned S20 with a new chip, faster charging, and 3D Sonic Max
But, what's in a name, right? We are more interested in knowing what the new phones will bring to the table. Per a previous report, the new range will consist of three phones and Ice has got some scoop on the highest-end model, which will presumably be called the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Galaxy S21 Ultra is expected to come with an improved version of Galaxy S20's 108MP camera

Turns out the marquee feature would still be a 108MP camera and not a 150MP sensor as rumored previously. It goes without saying that it will not be the ISOCELL Bright HM1 unit seen on the Galaxy S20. It will probably be an updated version of the HM1, which failed to live up to the hype.

The highest-end model will seemingly be powered by the Exynos 1000 and a leaker claims that it will be as good as the Snapdragon 875. This is theoretically possible since both the chips will apparently be made using the 5nm process.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra could also offer 60W fast charging and it will likely use Qualcomm's new in-display fingerprint sensor, the 3D Sonic Max. It is 17 times bigger than the scanner on the Galaxy S20 and Qualcomm claims it's also faster and easier to use.
