Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra specifications and display
These chipsets should sit alongside a minimum of 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM in all markets. MicroSD card support is very likely too, although other models with extra storage and RAM are believed to be under development.
Samsung has selected minimal bezels and an even thinner chin, in addition to a centered punch hole for the selfie camera, the latter of which has become the brand’s signature look over the past twelve months.
Samsung will continue the massive camera bump trend
When we turn the Galaxy S21 Ultra over, it’s clear the smartphone follows in the footsteps of its smaller sibling. It adopts the new camera bump design that Samsung is cooking up, which means one that wraps over the edges and highlights individual sensors.
The cameras haven’t been detailed, but a new version of the 108-megapixel sensor introduced on the Galaxy S20 Ultra is expected. Another camera will likely offer ultra-wide functionalities, and the final two are expected to be periscope and telephoto zoom shooters for a more advanced zoom system.
When will the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G be released?
Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 series in February and released the smartphones in March. But with Huawei now unable to compete outside of China and other competitors releasing their devices months later, Samsung is switching up its launch timeline.
Steve Hemmerstoffer has corroborated recent reports by confirming Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra in January and release them in February. That’s a full month earlier than usual and means there will be few competing flagships on the market.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing plans at the moment. But considering the criticism Samsung faced due to its high Galaxy S20 prices, the Galaxy S21 Ultra should be a little cheaper than its predecessor.
