The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra could finally have 120Hz refresh rate and WQHD+ resolution at the same time
Just a few hours ago, Ice universe from Twitter just leaked a piece of information on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. For the fans of refresh rates, it seems that the ultra variant could go up to 120Hz refresh rate and WQHD+ resolution at the same time.
For those who don't know, the predecessors would only allow FHD+ resolution if you were going for the 120Hz refresh rate mode. If you wanted WQHD+ resolution, the phones (Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Note 20 series) would drop to 60Hz refresh rate only. However, do keep in mind that this could very well eat the phone's battery life tremendously.

Furthermore, most casual users won't be able to tell the difference between WQHD+ and FHD+ resolution quality. Do also note that most mobile games won't be able to pass over 60Hz refresh rate as well but despite that, it would be a glorious view for watching Netflix, YouTube and other streaming services. We have actually written if mobile gaming on 120Hz + 1080p or 60Hz + 1440p is better as well as a comparison between 120Hz IPS LCD vs 60Hz AMOLED, so check them out!
The Samsung Galaxy S21 series will make its debut on 14 January 2021 and it will be a live streaming event at 11 PM. Stay tuned for our news coverage soon at TechNave.com.
