With Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series launching a month earlier than usual, WinFuture reveals practically everything you need to know about the Galaxy S21 Ultra–including its estimated European price and details about the Exynos 2100 processor that will power it in some regions.
To start things off, while the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a curved AMOLED display, it is a tad smaller than the one on the Galaxy S20 Ultra at 6.8-inches. The display itself is a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that has a Quad HD+ resolution and a 120hz adaptive refresh rate. Aside from being brighter at up to 1600nits, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
The Galaxy S21 series’ trademark feature will be the camera bump, which appears to be part of the metal frame. Speaking of build, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a glass back.
Unlike the Galaxy S21 and S21+, you get four cameras on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The main camera is an new 108-megapixel 1.33″ sensor that uses Laser Autofocus instead of a 3D ToF Sensor. Accompanying it is a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with PDAF and two telephoto cameras: one being a traditional 10-megapixel f/2.4 one with 3x optical zoom and one being a periscope 10-megapixel f/4.9 camera with 10x optical zoom. For selfies, you still get a 40-megapixel snapper with autofocus.
As for videos, the Galaxy S21 Ultra can shoot up to 8K30, 4K60, and Full HD at 240FPS.
As for the internals, the Galaxy S21 Ultra that’s coming to Europe (and the Philippines) will be powered by an Exynos 2100 processor. Slated to be unveiled on January 12–two days before the official launch of the Galaxy S21 series–the Exynos 2100 will have one prime core with a clock speed of 2.9Ghz, three high-performance cores at 2.8Ghz, and four efficiency cores at 2.4Ghz. Being the top-tier model, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will come with 12GB RAM and 128GB/256GB/512GB internal storage depending on the region.
As for other details, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a 5000mAh battery and support for 45w wired charging–though you will need to buy the power brick separately as Samsung will follow Apple’s footsteps.
As for the S-Pen support, you will need to buy the S-Pen separately, either as a bundle (with the Silicone or Smart Clear View Cover) or as a standalone accessory. As for pricing, WinFuture said that it will be priced at around 1400 Euros(~Php 82.6k) in Europe–as usual, pricing in the Philippines will be lower compared to Europe.
