As for the camera, the devices are likely to have a triple rear camera and a 10-megapixel front-facing camera. The 64-megapixel telephoto sensor with OIS is what is likely to differentiate the phones from their predecessor, the S20. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is rumoured to have a 108-megapixel primary sensor.

S-Pen

The phones are also likely to come with support for the S-Pen, a feature exclusive to the Galaxy Note so far. According to a listing with the United States Federal Communications Commission, first spotted by Android Authority, Samsung’s S Pen stylus is likely to be supported by the upcoming flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra phone.

“We’ve also been paying attention to people’s favourite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience and are excited to add some of its most well-loved features to other devices in our line-up,” Roh had said.
