Samsung is gearing up to launch its Galaxy S21 5G by January 2020. The smartphone has been leaked with certain information on regular intervals. It is estimated that it will enter production by the end of this year. We can also expect it to be the most powerful smartphone in the entire Samsung Galaxy S roster. Additionally, news related to the S Pen stylus has been around since August. Today, renowned tipster Ice Universe shared a tweet confirming that the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G will indeed support S Pen.

However, according to another leakster Max J, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G won’t have a separate compartment to hold the S Pen stylus. This was also proved by the renders that came out back in October. Apparently, the South Korean giant might introduce a back cover to hold the S Pen stylus.
Also, the S Pen might be optional and can be sold as an accessory from next year onwards. Many sources claim that Samsung might dump its Galaxy Note series category and make room for a more futuristic Galaxy Fold series. It’s logical because the introduction of S Pen as an accessory might lure consumers to ignore Note Series entirely.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G: What we know so far
Depending on the market, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be powered by Snapdragon 875 or Exynos 2100 CPU version. The Snapdragon 875 SoC will most likely ship to markets such as the U.S. and China. Whereas Exynos edition will be used for markets such as India.
Moving towards the front, it will house a 6.8″ Dynamic AMOLED display. The screen will produce a 2K resolution and a high refresh rate of 120Hz. It will be the first time that 120Hz will be used on a 2K panel. Samsung might easily break some barriers with this. According to previous renders, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have sport a curved edge display as well.
For optics, it might house a new 108MP 0.8µm HM3 primary sensor and laser autofocus. Whereas, a 40MP selfie shooter is expected from the device.
Lastly, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will come preloaded with Android 11 OS based on One UI 3.0. It may draw power from a 5,000mAh battery which might support 60W fast charging.
