11 years. Yes, it has been 11th incredible year since Samsung has entered the smartphone market through its Galaxy S series. Earlier this year, Samsung has introduced its latest smartphone, the  Galaxy S21 series, equipped with state-of-the-art technology for its users. With the fast-paced world and the digitalization efforts often advertised by the government, smart device users now need to have devices capable of meeting their daily needs no matter whether they are company employees, students, teachers, nurses, or anyone. In line with the demand of today's smart device users, the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and S21 Ultra are the latest devices that empower you to express yourself and at the same time give you more satisfaction than other smart devices.

During their virtual event, Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021: Welcome to the Everyday Epic, Samsung has introduced three models under these new Galaxy S series to the public. The three new models are Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, the largest model in the Galaxy S21 series with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. Compared to the Galaxy S20, Samsung claimed that the S21 Ultra offers a 25% brighter display and delivers more precise and richer images. The Galaxy S21 Ultra come with a quad rear camera with an upgraded 108MP pro sensor with 100 times the zooming space.



Thank you to Samsung Malaysia, we at ZulYusmar.com are fortunate to get a set of Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in our hand to share our first glimpse of the device to our readers.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with a black box finishing that looks elegant and premium. If you are a Samsung user or used to be Samsung user, the most significant change that you can see is how thin the box for S21 series compared to the previous series. This change is due to Samsung's decision not to include headphones & chargers due to its initiative to reduce the environment's impact.



Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office, Mobile Communications Business said that Samsung chose to remove wired headphones and in-box chargers for Galaxy S21 because they believe that the gradual removal of charger plugs and earphones from their in-box device packaging can help address sustainable consumption issues. It also one of their initiative to remove any pressure that consumers may feel towards continually receiving unnecessary charger accessories with new phones. But worry not because Samsung been implementing standardized USB-C type charging ports since 2017, so older chargers can still be compatible with their latest Galaxy models.



When you open the box, the first thing you'll see is, of course, is your device. In term of colour, Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is available in Phantom Violet, Phantom Gray, Phantom White and Phantom Pink. As for the Galaxy S21+ 5G, the colours available for Malaysian consumer would be in Phantom Violet, Phantom Black and Phantom Silver. However, Samsung S21 Ultra 5G is only available in two colours: Phantom Black and Phantom Silver.




Compared to the previous S series with 2 or 3 more small boxes, the entire Galaxy S21 series now comes with only one box containing all the remaining items on the box.



Behind this little box, you can find ejection pin that you use to insert your sim card.



For those who are not familiar with eSIM, the eSIM allows you to activate a mobile network plan without a nano-SIM. If your Galaxy smartphone has an eSIM, you can add and remove your mobile network plan to the smartphone.

Inside the box, you may find 1 unit of USB-C to C data cable alongside several documents such as the Quick Start Guide, The Regional Lock Guide and Warranty Card in several languages.



And that's all. As we become more concerned about our environment nowadays, we at ZulYusmar.com are quite pleased with how Samsung and other phone manufacturers are now trying their best to reduce the environmental impact.



Now let's take a closer look at the state-of-the-art Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G itself. My first impression is I love on how they integrate the camera housing to phone itself. Samsung called this a Contour Cut Camera, all-new, iconic housing that seamlessly blends into the device's metal frame for a sleek, yet striking, aesthetic look. Personally, the design of the camera itself looks more bold and brave. While some prefer to have a simple old camera design levelled with the device body, I am amazed at how unique the camera housing is on this S21 Ultra.



Galaxy S21 Ultra comes with a quad rear camera that features an upgraded 108MP pro wide sensor, 12MP Ultra-wide lenses, 10M Telephoto (3x), 10M Telephoto (10x) with a maximum zoom scope up to 100x. You can also now shoot in 4K at 60fps across all lenses including front and rear four lenses. In their releases, Samsung said that this new flagship series debuts a head-turning, iconic design, an epic pro-grade camera for users of any skill level and the most advanced processor ever in a Galaxy device.



There is no more button on the left side of the device. The side key and the volume key are on the right side of the device.



There is a dual-microphone on top of the device and another microphone on the bottom of the device alongside the sim card tray, speaker, and earphone/ multipurpose jack (USB Type-C).



Galaxy S21 Ultra offered 6.8" screen size with edge-to-edge Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O display with adaptive 120Hz refresh rate for smoother scrolling and viewing experience. For the front glass, S21 Ultra are using Gorilla Glass Victus and Gorilla Glass for the back.



In their website, Corning claimed that their Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™ are the most rigid Gorilla® Glass yet, with significant improvement in both drop and scratch performance, for the first time in the Gorilla Glass family. In their lab tests, Gorilla Glass Victus survived drops onto hard, rough surfaces from up to 2 meters, which mean that you are now getting the best protection for your front glass.

Now, let's see some of the questions you might have after unboxing your new Samsung Galaxy S21 series.

CHARGER/ ADAPTER
While you still can use your existing charger that uses USB Type C, you may also purchase Super Fast Charge Travel Adapter (25W) directly from Samsung for RM129.00 here.



EARPHONE/ HEADPHONE
Unlike in previous S20 series that bundles with AKG wired earphone, Samsung Galaxy S21 series doesn't come with any headphone bundled in the box. But, worry not as for Limited Time Only, you can Pre-order the new Galaxy S21 5G with free Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartTag from 15 January 2021 until 28 January 2021 here.



SILICONE CASE
All Samsung Galaxy S21 series is also not bundled with the basic silicone case. But, in case you need one for your new Samsung Galaxy S21, you can purchase it from the official Samsung website here or any 3rd party casing supplier.
