Samsung Unpacked: S21 Ultra 5G

At the start of every year, Samsung always brings the goods and this year is no different. Samsung’s Unpacked event revealed a number of products but the pinnacle is the S21 Ultra 5G.

Off the bat, Samsung has followed Apple’s lead and will not include charging brick with their phones. So if you don’t already have one, you will need to fork out extra. And for the first time the S21 Ultra 5G is bringing S-pen functionality.

The phone is one of the largest, coming in at 6.8-inches with an AMOLED 2X display running at QuadHD+ with 120Hz refresh rate, now available at the same time. Brightness tops out at 1,500 nits which should never let you down, no matter how bright the sun is.

Such a big screen needs a big battery and Samsung delivered there too with a 5,000mAh capable of fast wireless charging as well as speedy wired charging. Onto the cameras and it has a quad rear camera (ultra-wide, wide and dual tele-lenses) that features a new 108MP pro sensor. This set up will allow for 4K 60fps video across any of the lenses including the selfie camera. Similar to last year’s S20 Ultra, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G features 100x Space Zoom which is powered by Samsung’s first-ever Dual-tele lens system – one optical 3x and one optical 10x both equipped Dual Photodiode(2PD)– so you can capture crystal-clear shots no matter how far you are from the action.

As we said earlier on, Samsung is bringing the fan favorite S Pen experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. From drawing to note-taking to editing photos and signing documents, now you can unlock the power of the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. Use an existing S Pen from a Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab or purchase an S Pen separately on its own or with a compatible case.

The S21 Ultra 5G will be readily available in the UK from January 29th in two distinct colours – Phantom Black or Phantom Silver or if you purchase online there will be three additional colours – Phantom Titanium, Phantom Blue and Phantom Brown.

Each of these phones will be available in three RAM and memory formats – 12GB/128GB for £1149, 16GB/256GB for £1199 and finally the ultimate 16GB/512GB for £1329.
