Samsung S21 Ultra 5G: A top-shelf choice for your new smartphone in 2022

In search of all the details on Samsung’s latest phone? You’re in the right place. Mobile Store is giving you the scoop on the Samsung S21 Ultra 5G. 

There’s a reason it’s called the Ultra: When it came to building the Samsung S21 Ultra 5G, the mobile phone giant did not spare on the upgrades. From its expansive display that seems to go on forever, to its endless battery life and its quadruple-lens camera system — the latest Samsung phone will not disappoint if you’re looking for an upgrade. Let Mobile Store give you a tour of what could be your next premium-range smartphone!

Top features of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

1. 8K Video

The Samsung S21 Ultra is one of the first phones to have 8K video. 8K means that a video taken on this phone has 8,000 pixels! This is the highest definition of video recording offered on any smartphone. You can also expect to get 33 megapixel screenshots out of an 8K video recording. 

Just numbers to you? Let’s put it this way — Samsung’s latest phone is one of the best video and photo capturing devices out there today.

2. Crystal clear resolution

Looking for ultra-clear images and display? The S21 Ultra has a high resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels with a 551 pixels-per-inch (ppi). The latest iPhone 13 only has a resolution with 2778 x 1284 pixels — showing just how much Samsung has put into upgrading their premium line of smartphones to compete with Apple. 

3. Larger-than-life display

The S21 Ultra 5G has a 6.9-inch screen with Infinity-O display. This feature expands the display right to the very edge — giving it that endless look and feel. The screen-to-body ratio is 89.9% — which means you get more screen for your phone than ever before.

4. Longer-lasting battery 

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has a 5,000 mAh battery which is one of the biggest batteries out there today. With regular use throughout the day, it still offers up to 11 and a half hours of battery life. Remember, even the smallest of tasks takes battery life; from googling a restaurant to scrolling through Instagram — so getting 11 hours of in-use battery life is excellent. You can also activate “Low Power Mode” to extend your battery life even further. 

5. Smart Reply

This a handy feature for those busy bodies who have little time to reply to text messages. AI technology picks up keywords in a text sent to you and then gives you reply options, including emojis. Quick and convenient. 

6. Super-Strength Screen Protection

It’s not gorilla glass for nothing. The technology used in Corning Gorilla Glass’s screen protectors includes a chemical process called Ion Exchange. It adds ions into the glass — which is then soaked in molten salt at 400 degrees Celsius. 

This supernatural-sounding process is the reason you can drop your phone and not have any scratches or cracks — although we don’t recommend purposefully dropping your phone on a daily basis just to prove a point.

7. The 40-megapixel selfie camera

Most modern smartphones have a selfie camera, but none quite like the S21 Ultra’s front camera! It offers a whopping 40 megapixels, which is much more than most selfie cameras on the market. 

The selfie camera also has dual video call, which allows you to use both the front and main camera while on a video call. In other words, you can video chat with friends while showing them the stunning view right in front of you. Cool, right? It also has other features such as dual pixel, 4K video and f/2.2 aperture.

5G connectivity in your Samsung: The future is now

For those still living under the 4G rock — 5G is the fastest internet connectivity speed for your devices.

Vodacom offers 5G in Cape Town, Jo’burg and Pretoria, while MTN offers 5G in Cape Town, Jo’burg, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth. Rain offers 5G in Tshwane and Johannesburg.
