Unboxing and hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra!

THE Samsung “opened the dance” of the flagships this year and quite early, revealing the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra. Of course, we had them in our hands for testing and presentation, so we open the “dance” of unboxings with the top of the family, the Galaxy S21 Ultra!

We remind you that the Galaxy S21 Ultra is available already for pre-order from large technology chains, until 29/1 with a gift of the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and the new Samsung SmartTag.

The S21 Ultra is clearly a great device. With dimensions 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9 mm and weight 227 gr (in the Sub-6GHz 5G version), makes one-handed use difficult, but the good thing is that it did not “escape” in length, even with the 20:9 ratio of the screen. The curved, on the sides, screen also helps, while the bezels are relatively small and the whole front is covered by Gorilla Glass Victus. At the back we have the large camera module, in the upper-left corner, which protrudes quite a bit from the back. The rest of the surface is simple and discreet, especially in the black version we had in our hands, while it has a metallic, matte finish. Note that all S21s are waterproof based on IP68 standard. You will find a cable in the package USB Type-C and a SIM tray pin, since the charger is no longer included.

Going to the screen, we find one Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with adaptive refresh rate at 120Hz, HDR10 + support and maximum brightness 1.500 nits, which will cover you in all circumstances. Obviously there is AOD, while the screen diagonal touches 6,8″ and the analysis of 1440×3200 pixels. As we said before it is convex on the sides, which sets it apart from the S21 and S21 + screens, with no “step” at that point, thankfully. It is difficult to find a flaw in this screen, which also hides him fingerprint sensor, which is higher than last year. The time for in-screen selfie camera has not arrived yet, so we have a small one here too hole-notch at the top, centrally.

Inside the S21 Ultra we find the new, powerful Exynos 2100 chipset, while the Snapdragon 888 will be on devices destined for the US and China. The Exynos 2100, however, offers the highest performance and is combined with 12 or 16GB RAM and 128, 256 or 512GB UFS 3.1 storage space. Unfortunately there is no microSD slot card, so the logical choice is 256ara or 512ara version of the device. The Android 11 with One UI 3.1 take great advantage of the hardware and offer a great user experience, with plenty of customization options. Note that the S21 Ultra stands out from its smaller siblings thanks to native support for the S Pen, although it is not included in the package, nor is there already a slot on the device for this. If, however, you are used to using it from a Note model, now you can with the S21 Ultra.

Go to the “highlight” of the device, the rear camera. It is quadruple and has a main sensor 108MP combined with a lens f/1.6 and has PDAF, Laser AF (distinguished in the module) and OIS. So far so good. The sequel, however, is very interesting. We have two telephoto lenses, one of 240mm (periscope) with DPPDAF and OIS which undertakes the “big” zooms and one of 70mm with DPPDAF and OIS which undertakes the “small”. Both are combined with sensors 10MP and offer up to 10x optical zoom and up to 100x digital zoom! The 4th camera is ultra-wide with sensor 12MP and 13mm lens, with DPPDAF and Super Steady Video mode. It is becoming clear that Samsung has given great importance to the issue of video focusing and stabilization, so that we can say … “who needs an action camera”! Especially with the ability to download video 8K @ 24fps, 4K @ 30 / 60fps, 1080p @ 30/60 / 240fps, 720p @ 960fps and HDR10 + support, stereo audio recording and gyro-EIS. As for the selfie camera, it has a huge sensor 40MP with lens f / 2.2, PDAF, ability dual video call along with the main camera and shooting capability 4K video at 60FPS. What else to ask for?

Ultrawide-telezoom samples:


In terms of connectivity we have … everything, except FM radio which will be enjoyed only by US buyers in the S21 Ultra and IR blaster. The difference, here, in relation to the S21 and S21 + is the support Wi-Fi 6e networks at 6GHz, something that will dramatically improve the quality of your connection, as long as you have a 6e router, of course …

Finally, the autonomy of the S21 Ultra is ensured by its battery 5.000mAh and exceeds one day of heavy use. The battery supports fast charging but only up to 25W, so Samsung lags a bit behind in this area this year. It also supports wireless charging up to 15W and reverse wireless charging up to 4.5W, to recharge your smartwatch, your TWS headphones or whatever else you want and can.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is the new flagship of the Koreans and stands out mainly thanks to its camera, but also for all its other specs. Available at Phantom Black και Phantom Silver colors versus €1.299 for the 128ara version, €1.349 for 256ara and €1.479 for the 512ara with 16GB RAM.
