The video revolution begins here
Goes far beyond cinema resolution
Take epic portraits right out of 8K video
8K Video is the highest resolution video available in a smartphone — that's four times as many pixels as 4K. Record in 8K 24fps and get crisp footage that looks better than the cinema, then upload and watch right on YouTube.
And with 8K Video Snap, you can pull epic high-resolution photos straight from 8K video.4 So you don't have to choose between shooting video or stills.

S Pen compatibility means you can finesse and fine-tune while editing your videos down to the last frame, with precision that your finger simply can't touch.
Smooth and steady, yet action-packed

SUPER STEADY ON
Turn on Super Steady and Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G shoots like an action cam. AI stabilisation eliminates the bumps, delivering gimbal-smooth video when you're on the move.
Super Smooth 60fps Video delivers a dynamic frame rate for super-smooth video even in low light. It automatically adjusts the fps so your video stays polished as you go from day to dusk.5
The resolution revolution continues

Crop, crop and crop again
The 108-megapixel camera captures so much detail, you can pinch in and reveal even more shots within.6 This camera quality expresses rich colour data for true-to-life details and hues — that don't get washed out in the sun.
100X SPACE ZOOM
One small tap for you, one giant leap for zoom
The breakthrough Dual Zoom system now zooms in faster, smoother and sharper than any zoom in the Galaxy series.7 And when paired with the all-new Zoom Lock, shots are more stable than ever.
Portraits get a face lift. Studio-like Portrait mode is now enhanced by AI to deliver the ideal lighting in your photos — analyzsng faces, lighting angles and direction and mapping depth of field.
Captures night like a dream
