Performance and internal specifications

This will help save the phone’s battery.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has the recently launched Exynos 2100 chipset, paired with either the 12GB or 16GB LPDDR5 RAM you get. In some markets like the US, the phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset instead.

The front will have a single 40MP (F / 2.2) camera sensor with phase detection autofocus and an 80-degree view field.
