Samsung announced the new flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is expected to be the most powerful smartphone in the Android ecosystem. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra’s price, design, features and all other details are in our news.
South Korean technology giant Samsung detonated the first bomb of the year and introduced its new flagship smartphones Galaxy S21 family to consumers. The Galaxy S21 family, which comes in three different models, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra, promises consumers the highest level of features they can expect from a 2021 model flagship.
Samsung has bid farewell to the double-sided curved edge screen design that has been going on since the Galaxy S6 Edge with the Galaxy S21 family, except the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In addition, the Galaxy S21 models have one of the most unusual rear camera designs we have seen so far. Samsung’s worst surprise in the Galaxy S21 family was the box content.
Introducing the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung’s new royal gem
The successor to the Galaxy S20 Ultra, announced last year, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, as you can imagine, is the top model of the Galaxy S21 family. Galaxy S21 Ultra, one of the most powerful Android smartphones on the market, is a device that can be appreciated by almost everyone who wants a high-end smartphone with its updated design and powerful hardware features.
Design: Original rear camera and a flatter screen
Infinity-O display design, the signature of the series
Higher screen-to-body ratio
Rear camera module covering the upper left corner and joining the frame
Gorilla Glass Victus on both front and back
165mm length, 75.6mm width, 8.9mm thickness, 228 gram weight
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra continues to maintain the Infinity-O design concept that we have been used to seeing since the Galaxy S10 family. Especially when you look at the Galaxy S21 Ultra from the front, you can see a smartphone that is very similar to the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The most important detail here is that Samsung has made the curves on both sides of the screen almost negligible. In addition, although it has almost the same design as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, we encounter a higher screen / body ratio in the Galaxy S21 Ultra as the screen frames are thinner.
The biggest innovation of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in terms of design is that it has a unique camera module that we have never seen in any smartphone before. The rectangular camera module placed in the upper left corner of the device in the Galaxy S20 Ultra is brought close to the corner of the device and joined with the metal frame of the screen. The camera module, which has an extremely large size, contains four cameras, sensors and LED flash.
Galaxy S21 Ultra is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, a new generation protective glass developed by Corning, both on the front and back. In addition, Samsung has certified the device’s water and dust resistance with IP68 certification. Finally, let’s also express that the Galaxy S21 Ultra has a height of 165 mm, a width of 75.6 mm, a thickness of 8.9 mm excluding the camera protrusion and a very high weight of 228 grams.
