Goodbye Note? The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra now supports the SPen!

At first I thought I was just seeing things, but after listening to the presentation, the SPen will indeed be made available to the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The S21 Ultra pulls out all the stops for those who want Samsung’s best-of-the-best with its most advanced pro-grade camera system and brightest, most intelligent display.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users expect the flagship smartphone experience to take creative expression and productivity to the next level. And for the first time on any S Series device, Samsung is bringing the fan favorite S Pen experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with Wacom’s technology. Now you can draw, take notes edit photos and sign documents, using the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. You can even use an existing S Pen from a Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab or purchase an S Pen separately on its own or with a compatible case. 

Galaxy S21 Series 5G unveils a bold new style that sets it apart from other smartphones. It introduces an all-new, iconic Contour Cut Camera housing that seamlessly blends into the device’s metal frame for a sleek, yet striking, aesthetic. Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is available in Phantom Black and Phantom Silver and it 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. 

As for the display, the S21 Ultra has a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. Users no longer have to decide between the smoothness of a 120Hz refresh rate and a Quad HD+ display — as you can choose both on the S21 Ultra.

The screen’s refresh rate adjusts to the content you’re viewing from 10Hz to 120Hz to ensure you enjoy the best image while staying power efficient to stretch your battery life even further. Compared with the Galaxy S20, S21 Ultra 5G offers a 25% brighter picture at a 1,500nits of peak brightness, the brightest on a Galaxy smartphone. With a 50% improved contrast ratio, it delivers crystal-clear, immersive images, even when outside. And like the Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has Eye Comfort Shield to help reduce eye fatigue. 

For its cameras, the Galaxy S21 Ultra has a quad rear camera (ultra-wide, wide and dual tele-lenses) that features a upgraded 108MP pro sensor, allowing you to capture 12 bit HDR photos with 64 times richer color data and more than three times wider dynamic range.

Another first for a Galaxy smartphone is being able to shoot in 4K at 60fps across all lenses including front and rear four lenses, so you can shift to a different perspective with the same quality. Plus, with a 12-bit RAW file option you won’t miss a single detail when editing photos.

When zooming in on S21 Ultra 5G, features 100x Space Zoom which is powered by Samsung’s first-ever Dual-tele lens system – one optical 3x and one optical 10x both equipped Dual Pixel(2PD) AF.. 

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G’s improved Bright Night sensor is Samsung’s biggest leap yet in low-light photography. With improved Night Mode, noise reduction and 12MP Nona-binning technology, you can capture challenging shots – like a dimly-lit room, or a landscape at night – quickly and with excellent quality. 

The Galaxy S21 Ultra is powered by a 5nm Exynos 2100 5G chipset, coupled with 12GB/16GB RAM and 256GB/512GB built-in memory. It offers faster speed advanced computing and greater energy efficiency. And when the battery gets low, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G can reach a 50% charge in just 30 minutes.
