Each year, Apple and Samsung go head to head in order to see who will have the superior smartphone. It’s become something of a technological arms race, for as soon as one brand has unveiled an innovative new feature, it’s not long before the other has responded in kind.
With Apple having already unveiled its iPhone 12, it’s Samsung’s move. Dubbed the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, their latest offering is a flagship smartphone that comes with a boatload of top-shelf specs. For starters, it features a stunning 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display capable of up to 120Hz refresh rates and 1,500nits of peak brightness — an item Samsung is calling its most intelligent screen yet. And when it comes to photography, the S21 Ultra 5G includes optical provisions aplenty. Thanks to its quad rear camera, it covers everything from ultra-wide to telephoto lenses — each supported by a massive 108MP pro sensor. What’s more, it’s the first Galaxy smartphone capable of shooting 4K/60fps across all of its focal lengths. Add to that 5G support, a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage, and you have an Android smartphone that can hold its own against any iPhone offering. Pre-order it now for $1,200.
