For the first time on a Galaxy device, 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 Adaptive 120Hz Display automatically adjusts to the content you’re viewing from 10Hz to 120Hz to ensure you enjoy the best image while efficiently managing power to help stretch battery life.

Best-in-Galaxy Smartphone Camera Experience
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G delivers our most advanced pro-grade camera system yet on a smartphone 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.
The multi-lens rear camera (ultra-wide, wide and dual tele-lenses) feature the highest resolution you can get in a Galaxy smartphone at 108MP, while an upgraded sensor offers more colour and less noise in low light5 so you can capture 12 bit HDR photos with 64 times richer colour data and more than three times wider dynamic range5. For the first time on a Galaxy smartphone, you can shoot in 4K at 60fps across all lenses, including front and rear lenses. This allows you shift to a different perspective with the same quality. Plus, with a 12-bit RAW file option6, you will be less likely to miss details when editing photos.
Zoom in with amazing clarity on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with Dual Lens 100x Zoom. The first-ever dual-tele lens system from Samsung, the new Dual Lens Zoom combines 3x and 10x optical zoom in one tap so you can capture crystal-clear shots even if you are far away from the action. You can also go the extra distance with 100x Space Zoom while Zoom Lock helps keep your subject centered.
Thanks to an improved Bright Night sensor, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G delivers the biggest leap in low-light photography in a Galaxy mobile device yet. With improved Night Mode, noise reduction and 12MP Nona-binning technology you can quickly capture challenging shots – like a dimly-lit room nighttime landscape – in share-worthy quality.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users expect their flagship smartphone experience to take creative expression and productivity to the next level.
