Cover more ground with the Galaxy S21 Ultra

A screen for all eyes

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is the biggest of Samsung’s next-gen smartphones for 2021, sporting a large display and a new haze matte finish on the back for a unique aesthetic look. New upgrades focus on improving how you use the device, both in everyday and specific situations.

It starts with the vivid 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x display, which marks the first time users don’t have to make a stark choice in how they navigate the screen. Samsung now makes it possible to use the smoother 120Hz refresh rate on the Quad HD+ resolution, removing the need to make a choice between the two. The Adaptive 120Hz Display automatically adjusts between 10Hz and 120Hz to slow down the refresh rate in static images to save battery life.

Samsung also raised the brightness up to 1,500 nits and improved contrast ratio to make it easier to see everything on the screen when outside during the day. And when you’re inside, the Eye Comfort Shield reduces eye fatigue by moderating blue light levels throughout a day by reading the amount of ambient light wherever you are.

Ready for the S Pen

For the first time, a Galaxy phone not called the “Note” is compatible with Samsung’s S Pen (sold separately). The Galaxy S21 Ultra is the only phone in the new S21 lineup offering that functionality, and you can either use a new one that comes with a protective Galaxy S21 Ultra case and holster for the pen, or use previous S Pens from the Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab devices.

The screen is ready for all S Pen input, taking the best of the features and performance from the Note series and bringing it to this device. Write down notes, draw amazing images, or simply navigate your way around with a fluid and precise motion every time.

An Ultra-level camera

The Galaxy S21 Ultra comes equipped with four lenses—a wide, ultra-wide and dual telephoto—to work with. Select the 108-megapixel image sensor to capture images with a level of detail so great, you can crop in and not lose sharpness before editing or sharing. New tools and features strive to push your mobile photography game to the next level.

In Pro mode, you can capture images in 12-bit HDR, giving you 64 times the colour data and tripling the level of dynamic range. Capture those images in RAW and you get all that detail for editing in ways you could never do on a Galaxy phone before. The newer Bright Night sensor and Nona-binning technology should improve output in Night Mode for quality low-light photos.

With dual telephoto lenses, you can either go with a 3x or 10x optical zoom to get closer to your subject without moving. Or you can get really close by combining them for a 100x Space Zoom, complete with a new feature called Zoom Lock to help steady your hands and keep things focused.

Finally, you can record video in 4K resolution at 60fps, ensuring you capture faster action with the clarity and sharpness you’d enjoy on a big screen TV. And that goes for all the lenses, both front and back, opening all sorts of creative possibilities.

Clocked for faster connections

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is ready for any 5G network in its sights, so you are hitting the ground running once you connect with a carrier offering the service. It will be compatible with any carrier in Canada that rolls out and expands its network, putting you in pole position.

And the connectivity doesn’t stop there. Samsung’s premium smartphone is among the first to support Wi-Fi 6E for a boost in wireless connectivity whenever you connect to a home or business network running the latest protocol. Ultra-wideband (UWB) support also enables the Galaxy S21 Ultra to act as hands-free keys by unlocking your car door.

Speaking of vehicles, Samsung SmartThings is also joining the in-car experience through Android Auto, enabling you to control compatible smart home devices from the driver or passenger seat. Just plug in the Galaxy S21 Ultra and take over from there.
