Samsung Electronics unveiled the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, a flagship device that pushes the boundaries of what a smartphone can do. The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G pulls out all the stops for those who want Samsung’s best-of-the-best with our most advanced pro-grade camera system and our brightest, most intelligent display. It takes productivity and creativity up a notch by bringing the popular S Pen experience to the Galaxy S series for the first time1.

“Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is another step in our ever-evolving journey to introduce meaningful innovation that provides our users with personalised and enriching experiences. Besides sporting a new look with the all-new Contour Cut camera design, users can look forward to advanced photography and videography features with the most advanced pro-grade camera system, including hyper detailed 100x Space Zoom experience, 8K video recording, and the ability to shoot from multiple angles. Along with advanced AI capabilities and support for 5G, we aim to set the standards as to what premium smartphones can do to make our everyday lives epic, especially during these times when we are more reliant on technology to keep us connected,” said Sarah Chua, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore.  


The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the newest chapter in the Galaxy S series’ decade-long legacy of delivering cutting-edge mobile experiences. It’s built for users who demand top-of-the-line technology to stay connected with the people and things that matter most. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G joins the new Galaxy S series of devices and takes every part of that S21 experience to the next level. 


With hyper-fast, ultra-low latency 5G2, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is built to provide fast video downloading, smooth video conferencing and streaming. The launch also further expands Samsung’s 5G offerings in Singapore, with the brand offering consumers the widest choice of 5G-ready devices in-market today. With the Galaxy S21 range, Samsung will now offer 11 5G product lines, providing consumers a multitude of choice across different form factors and price points for them to quickly adopt and unlock the power of 5G in 2021.

Incredible Innovation Housed in Head-Turning Design


Galaxy S21 series unveils a bold new style that sets it apart from other smartphones. It introduces an all-new, iconic Contour Cut Camera housing that seamlessly blends into the device’s metal frame for a sleek, yet striking, aesthetic. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is available in Phantom Black and Phantom Silver and it is coated in a luxurious haze finish for an all-around sophisticated and timeless look. It also offers improved durability with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™, the toughest Gorilla Glass yet3.


Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the largest member of the Galaxy S21 series with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display4. It is our most intelligent screen yet. For the first time, users no longer have to decide between the smoothness of a 120Hz refresh rate and a Quad HD+ display — on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, you can choose both. The screen’s refresh rate adjusts to the content you’re viewing from 10Hz to 120Hz to ensure you enjoy the best image while staying power efficient to stretch your battery life even further. Compared with the Galaxy S20, S21 Ultra 5G offers a 25% brighter pictureat a 1,500nits of peak brightness, the brightest on a Galaxy smartphone. With a 50% improved contrast ratio3, it delivers crystal-clear, immersive images, even when outside. And like the Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has Eye Comfort Shieldto help reduce eye fatigue.

Samsung’s Best-in-Class Camera Experience


Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G delivers with our most advanced pro-grade camera system, so that you can capture stunning, studio-quality photos in various lightings and settings, or shoot and edit videos with a toolbox of new AI-powered features that elevate every shot.  


It has a quad rear camera (ultra-wide, wide and dual tele-lenses) that features an upgraded 108MP pro sensor, from which you can capture 12-bit HDR photos with 64 times richer colour data and more than three times wider dynamic range3. For the first time on a Galaxy smartphone, you can shoot in 4K at 60fps across all lenses including front and rear four lenses, so you can shift to a different perspective with the same quality. Plus, with a 12-bit RAW file option6, you won’t miss a single detail when editing photos.


When zooming in on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, you don’t have to worry about sacrificing clarity. 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 Pixel (2PD) – so you can capture clear shots even when you are far from the action. 


Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G’s improved Bright Night sensor is Samsung’s biggest leap yet in low-light photography. With improved Night Mode, noise reduction and 12MP Nona-binning technology, you can capture challenging shots – like a dimly-lit room, or a landscape at night – quickly and with excellent quality. 



Elevated productivity experience with S Pen


Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users expect the flagship smartphone experience to take creative expression and productivity to the next level. That’s why, for the first time on any S series device, Samsung is bringing the fan favourite S Pen1 experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with Wacom’s technology. From drawing, note-taking to editing photos and signing documents, you can now 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.



Smart, Hyper-Fast Connections Across Devices


Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G continues Samsung’s legacy of delivering trailblazing technology like Ultra-wideband (UWB) and introduces new connectivity capabilities that will transform the way you interact with your devices. 


Thanks to UWB embedded in Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and S21+ 5G, you will be able to use your Galaxy S21 device to automatically unlock compatible car doors without pulling out your keys7. With the UWB-enabled Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and S21+ 5G, you can also use AR finder to drop virtual messages that let other Galaxy smartphone users know you need help searching for a lost item8.


And with SmartThings on Android Auto™9, you can also use your Galaxy S21 smartphones to control smart devices in your home, from your car. By connecting your Galaxy S21 to your Android Auto compatible car, you can turn on your lights or even cool the room with the air conditioner before you return home, all from your car.


And because you need uninterrupted, long-lasting connections across your entire ecosystem of connected devices, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G employs Dual Bluetooth® technology that helps your connected devices like Galaxy Buds Pro10 consume less battery with a stable connection.

Performance and Protection You Can Count On


The ground-breaking camera, display and connectivity capabilities of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G are powered by the advanced chipset. It offers faster speed3, advanced computing and greater energy efficiency. And when the battery gets low, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G can reach a 50% charge11 in just 30 minutes12.


We rely on our smartphones more than ever, which is why protecting sensitive information is more important than ever. The Galaxy S21 range is secured by Samsung Knox Vault, Samsung's own proprietary chipset level (SoC) security platform. By adding tamper-resistant secure memory to our secure processor, Samsung Knox Vault adds a new layer of protection to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. 


Galaxy S21 series also introduces a new tool to protect and monitor your privacy. You can safely remove location metadata from photos before sharing. With the all-new Private Share function, you can also control who gets access to the content you send, and how long it’s available13.
