On Thursday, Samsung launched its new flagship smartphone, ‘Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G’ in Galaxy Unpacked 2021 Online Event. The smartphone is part of the ‘Galaxy S-series’. Along with the smartphone, the company also launched the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ model.
The key specifications of the smartphone include a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, Quad Rear Cameras, up to 16GB RAM, Snapdragon 888 SoC/Exynos 2100 SoC and 5000mAh Battery.
The main highlights of the smartphones are 5G support, 5nm SoC and S Pen support. It features iconic Contour Cut Camera design which seamlessly blends into the smartphone’s metal frame.
Galaxy S21 Ultra features UWB (Ultra-wideband capabilities) which is embedded to automatically unlock compatible car doors without taking out your car keys. This year, S21 Ultra has a sleeker box which does not include charger and wired earbuds.
It is also the first smartphone in S-series which supports S Pen with Wacom technology. The S Pen will be sold separately as an accessory. It will come in two models, S Pen and S Pen Pro. The S Pen Pro is larger in size, supports Air gestures and will be available later this year. S21 Ultra doesn’t have a slot to carry S Pen as the Note-series had so the company will sell cases for the smartphone to hold the S Pen.
