Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G CAD-based render
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.
On the software side of things, expect Android 11 and One UI 3.0 pre-installed. The leaked renders confirm customers will be able to interact with the software on a massive 6.9-inch AMOLED display with subtle curves on either side.
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.
Max Weinbach suggested that a new version of the 108-megapixel sensor introduced on the Galaxy S20 Ultra is to be expected alongside a 16-megapixel camera. The latter may support ultra-wide-angle capabilities.
The final two cameras will offer 10-megapixel resolutions. Recent rumors suggest they could be periscope and telephoto zoom shooters that enable a much 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, Max Weinbach, and Android Central have corroborated recent reports about a Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra unveiling in January followed by a release 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.
