The new Galaxy S21 Ultra should finally solve one of the main shortcomings that characterized the S20 and Note 20 series, namely the inability to take advantage of the 120Hz panel when the screen resolution is set to the maximum level, or WQHD +.
On the current top of the range, in fact, it is necessary to compromise in order to be able to enjoy the higher refresh rate, but things are about to change with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, at least according to what emerges from a first screenshot of the interface shared by the known leaker Ice Universe.
The image you can see on the sideshows us how the smartphone simultaneously presents the Motion Uniformity mode set to Adaptive, all while the resolution of the panel is fixed on WQHD + (3,200 x 1,440).
In short, finally, Samsung is also able to offer both options without requiring any waiver, a sign that the Exynos 2100 SoC should no longer have problems managing the panel at that resolution and with that given refresh rate.
Samsung has never officially explained why devices like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra – the first to equip an LTPO panel capable of guaranteeing variable refresh rate support, unlike the S20 which can only operate at 120 or 60Hz – do not could access this functionality, but among the main suspects there was him, the little appreciated and successful Exynos 990.
Galaxy S21 Ultra will ensure that this scenario remains confined to the past and we remind you that it will be the only device of the S21 family to allow it, as both the standard model and the Plus variant will be equipped with a Full HD + panel, which is why not limits are placed on access to 120Hz. These and other details will be confirmed at the presentation event expected for January 14th.
