MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Jan. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. unveiled the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, a flagship device that pushes the boundaries of what a smartphone can do. The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G pulls out all the stops for those who want the best-of-the-best with our most advanced pro-grade camera system and our brightest, most intelligent display yet in a smartphone. It takes productivity and creativity up a notch by bringing the popular S Pen experience to the Galaxy S series for the first time with the purchase of the optional S Pen^1.A photo accompanying this announcement is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/b1cfed7f-4bf9-4e12-90ad-d3c1f959ee12
“Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is another example of how Samsung is driving meaningful innovation that offers a personalized experience to enrich lives and empower users to express who they are,” said* TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. *“Given how indispensable technology has been to our lives during these times, we wanted push the boundaries of what a smartphone can do.”
The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the newest chapter in a decade-long legacy of delivering cutting-edge mobile experiences with the Galaxy S series. It’s built for users who demand top-of-the-line technology to stay connected with the people and things that matter most. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G joins the new Galaxy S series of devices, taking every part of the Galaxy S21 5G experience to the next level.
*Incredible Innovation Housed in Head-Turning Design*
Galaxy S21 Series 5G unveils a bold new style that is bound to turn heads. It introduces an all-new, iconic Contour Cut Camera housing that seamlessly blends into the device’s metal frame for a sleek yet striking esthetic. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is available in Phantom Black and Phantom Silver and is coated in a luxurious haze finish for an all-around sophisticated and timeless look. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G also offers improved durability with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™, the toughest Gorilla Glass yet.
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the largest member of the Galaxy S21 Series 5G with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display^2 — offering our most intelligent smartphone screen yet. 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. Compared with the Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G offers a 25 per cent brighter^3 picture at a 1,500nits of peak brightness, the brightest on a Galaxy smartphone. With a 50 per cent improved contrast ratio^3, it delivers crystal-clear, immersive images, even when you are outside. And like the Galaxy S21 5G and Galaxy S21+ 5G, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has Eye Comfort Shield^4 to provide intelligent blue light management and help reduce eye fatigue.
*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 light^5 so you can capture 12 bit HDR photos with 64 times richer colour data and more than three times wider dynamic range^5. 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 option*^6, 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.
*Smart, Hyper-Fast Connections Across Devices*
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G delivers trailblazing technology like Ultra-wideband (UWB) and introduces new connectivity capabilities that will transform the way you interact with your devices.
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users expect their flagship smartphone experience to take creative expression and productivity to the next level. That’s why, for the first time ever on any S Series device, Samsung is bringing the fan favourite *S Pen experience* to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G^7. From drawing to note-taking to editing photos and signing documents, now you can unlock the power of the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. Use an existing S Pen from a Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab or you can purchase an S Pen separately on its own or with a compatible case.
For better and faster connectivity^8, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is one of the first smartphones to support *Wi-Fi 6E*^9. You will soon be able to enjoy more bandwidth and a faster internet connection,^10 so you can stream and share content in the blink of an eye. With hyper-fast, ultra-low latency 5G^11, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is built to provide fast video downloading and smooth video conferencing and streaming for the way we live today.
Thanks to the Ultra-wideband capabilities (UWB) embedded in Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and Galaxy S21+ 5G, you will be able to use your Galaxy S21 Series 5G device to automatically unlock compatible car doors without pulling out your keys^12.
And with SmartThings^13 on Android Auto™^14, you can use your Galaxy S21 Series 5G smartphone to control other smart devices in your home, from your car. By connecting your Galaxy S21 Series 5G to your Android Auto compatible vehicle, you can turn on porch lights or even raise the temperature of your thermostat before you return home.
And because you need uninterrupted, long-lasting connections across your entire ecosystem of connected devices, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G employs Dual Bluetooth® technology that helps your connected devices like Galaxy Buds Pro^15 consume less battery with a stable connection.
*Performance and Protection You Can Count On*
The ground-breaking camera, display, and connectivity capabilities of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G are powered by the most advanced chipset in a Galaxy mobile device. It offers faster speed, advanced computing and greater energy efficiency.^3 And when your battery starts running low, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G can reach a 50 per cent charge^16 in just 30 minutes^17.
We rely on our smartphones more than ever which is why protecting sensitive information is more important than ever. Galaxy S21 Series 5G is secured by *Samsung Knox Vault*, the Samsung proprietary chipset level (SoC) security platform. By adding tamper-resistant secure memory to our secure processor, Samsung Knox Vault enables a new layer of protection on the Galaxy S21 Series 5G lineup.
Galaxy S21 Series 5G also introduces a new tool to protect and monitor your privacy. You can safely remove location metadata from photos before sharing them, and with the Galaxy S21 Series 5G’s all-new Private Share function, you can even control who gets access to the content you send and how long it’s available^18.
