From the images, it is clear that the Galaxy S21 uses a quad-camera setup. However, the Galaxy S21+ camera will stick to the three-camera module. Moreover, it is suspected that the new series could also feature a frosted back shell.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra camera specs leaked
In another leak, popular tipster Ice Universe confirmed the Galaxy S21 Ultra camera specs. The illustration shows the sensor details of the five camera modules (with S21 and S21+ getting triple cameras).

The primary module on the S21 Ultra houses the latest 108MP ISOCELL HM3 sensor with 0.8 µm pixels and Super PD autofocus. Moreover, it will come with 12% better light sensitivity in comparison to the HM1 sensor used by Samsung this year.
The resolution will be high enough for lossless digital zoom until 3x. Additionally, the phone will feature a dedicated 3x telephoto camera with 10MP ISOCELL Fast 3J1 sensor with 1.22 µm pixel and Dual Pixel AF. If you zoom beyond 3x, it will likely merge the data from wide and 3x tele cameras that are next to each other.
The folded periscope takes over once you’ve reached 10x magnification. It will use the same sensor (10MP 3J1) as the other tele camera.
Finally, there is also a 12MP ultra-wide camera with an IMX563 sensor. In fact, this might be the only Sony sensor used on the rear of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. It could possibly be the only Sony sensor in the entire phone given the S20 Ultra features a Samsung sensor.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra is also likely to stick to the Laser autofocus used by the Note 20 ultra, instead of giving another try to S20 Ultra’s 3D ToF sensor.
