The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G will be an IP68 certified dustproof and water-resistant device with Gorilla Glass Victus on the front. It features a metallic frame and a glass rear. The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is fitted with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with Infinity-O-Edge design that features a top-centre punch-hole. The screen produces a 1,440 x 3,200 pixels quad HD+ resolution, a 20:9 aspect ratio, a pixel density of 515ppi, a 120Hz refresh rate, and 1600nits max brightness.

Unlike the Galaxy S20 Ultra that came with a curved edge screen, the S21 Ultra’s display is almost flat.  The display is integrated with an ultrasonic-based fingerprint sensor. At the front, the Galaxy S21 Ultra possesses a 40-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus support. The rear side of the phone has a quad-camera system that features an OIS and laser autofocus assisted 108-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture and 0.8µ pixel size. It is a second-generation lens that succeeds the one that was available on the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.

The main camera of the S21 Ultra is coupled with a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens that offers a 120-degree FOV and autofocus support. Next comes a 10-megapixel telephoto lens with OIS, and a 10-megapixel periscope telephoto lens that comes with support for OIS, PDAF, laser autofocus, 240mm equivalent focal length, 3x optical zoom, and 10x hybrid zoom. The report claims that the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G will be capable of recording 8K videos at 30fps, 4K UHD videos at 60fps, and 1080p Full HD videos at 240fps.

Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with Snapdragon 888 5G in certain markets like the U.S., China, and South Korea. The S21 Ultra 5G units heading to Europe and India are likely to feature the Exynos 2100 chipset that is all set to debut on January 12th. The phablet will come with 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM and it will be available in UFS 3.1 storage versions like 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB in Europe. The One UI 3.1 based Android 11 OS will come preinstalled on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G will draw power from a 5,000mAh battery that supports 45W fast charging and rapid wireless charging. In Germany, the retail box of the smartphone will not include a power adapter or AKG earphones. The S21 Ultra 5G will offer users with other features like dual SIM, e-SIM support, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, DeX desktop mode, Knox, face recognition, and stereo speakers.

Lastly, the S21 Ultra does not have a dedicated slot for storing the S Pen. Hence, the stylus will be available as an optional accessory for S21 Ultra buyers. The S Pen may slightly differ from the ones that come along with the Galaxy Note series. Samsung is expected to sell Silicon Cover and Smart Clear View Cover for storing the S Pen with the S21 Ultra.
