Untuk memberi pengguna lebih keyakinan dan jaminan keselamatan makanan dalam tempoh pandemik dan di kemudian hari



Massimo, jenama yang terkenal dengan produk roti menyihatkan dan selamat untuk dimakan, hari ini melancarkan pembungkusan roti tamper-evident yang pertama di Malaysia bagi memberi lebih keyakinan kepada pengguna menerusi standard keselamatan makanan yang lebih tinggi.

Pembungkusan inovatif yang merupakan satu kemajuan besar dalam industri pembuatan roti komersil ini diperkenalkan sebagai respons kepada kebimbangan yang kerap disuarakan oleh pengguna mengenai keselamatan produk makanan semasa wabak Covid-19.

Pembungkusan pengedap keselamatan tamper-evident yang baharu ini akan diperkenalkan pada kesemua produk roti Massimo bermula hari ini.

The Italian Baker Sdn Bhd telah melabur RM1 juta ke dalam teknologi pembungkusan pengedap keselamatan laser-seal tamper-evident dari Amerika Syarikat bagi memastikan produk-produknya selamat untuk pengguna. Teknologi ini memberi amaran kepada pengguna jika sesuatu produk makanan itu sudah diusik, dan ia boleh dilihat dengan jelas pada produk.

Pengarah Urusan The Italian Baker Sdn Bhd Encik Jeremy Goon menerangkan, pembungkusan pengedap keselamatan tamper-evident Massimo yang baru diperkenalkan ini akan meningkatkan lagi integriti produk, keselamatan makanan dan jaminan kualiti. Ini dibuat supaya pengguna lebih berpuas hati dan untuk memelihara reputasi jenama.

“Pengguna produk Massimo terutama sekali penggemar roti kami kian bertambah semasa wabak ini kerana rakyat Malaysia jarang keluar rumah dan lebih banyak makan di rumah. Kebimbangan pengguna mengenai makanan yang sudah diusik sama ada yang disengajakan atau tidak disengajakan juga turut meningkat semasa pandemik ini.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro Unboxing and Review: The Premium Earbuds From Samsung

No comments
We all can agree on one thing. Smartphone has become a necessity for any human being, especially during this time. Be it kids to use it for their online distance learning, teens to participate in their online Zoom or Google Meet class, seniors who use Zoom to keep in touch with their kids and grandkids, and many more. We are now communicating more often, listening to songs with a different genre, watching videos on social media for a long time, and more through our smartphones than in the past, making earbuds more necessary in this day's age.



Earlier this year, on top of launching the new S21 series, Samsung has also unleashed the new Galaxy Buds Pro, which they said is a true wireless earbud, with pro-grade technology for an immersive sound you never heard before. Earlier this month, thank you to Samsung Malaysia; we managed to get the black Galaxy Buds Pro and spend almost a month experiencing this beast. But, before that, in case you missed out on our article on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, you can read the unboxing article here and in-depth review here.

UNBOXING: WHAT'S INSIDE THE BOX?







Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro comes with its compact charging case along with the charging cable (USB-C to USB-A), Warranty Card, Quick Start Guide, and three extra ear tips (small, medium, and large) on top of the tips that already on the buds so that you can find one that suit you the best.



Upon pairing your Galaxy Buds Pro with your Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, the Samsung Wearables app will be automatically run and install the app for the Galaxy buds Pro. Once you successfully paired and installed the Galaxy Buds Pro app on your Samsung Wearables, you will now able to navigate and use the fantastic features that these earbuds offer, such as Noise Control, Ambient Sound Control, 360 audio, and many more. First-time pairing is effortless on Samsung devices with the Galaxy Wearable app pre-installed. You can also pair it with other Android or IOS devices via a Bluetooth connection.





REVIEW: IMMERSIVE SOUND THAT WE NEVER HEARD BEFORE
Samsung's new wireless earbuds, Galaxy Buds Pro, have changed from a bean type shape to a canal type and have dramatically improved noise canceling performance. It is also functionally updated features, such as supporting 360 ° audio, and many people are quite excited about this new earbud from Samsung. The earbuds body has an IPX7 grade water-resistant design. The outside is streamlined to minimize wind contact when worn.



A new feature of the Galaxy Buds Pro is the voice detection feature. If you turn this on, for example, when you start a conversation with someone, it will recognize your voice. It automatically lowers the noise-canceling level and raises the volume of the environmental sound. At first glance, it's a modest feature, but it's a huge hit. For example, even if you enter a convenience store while listening to music, if you talk to the clerk at the cash register, the earbuds will automatically lower the volume and raise the environmental sound level. You don't have to remove the earbuds or adjust the volume yourself.

The Galaxy Buds Pro itself is equipped with the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature. This feature can reduce noise around the user. More specifically, these earbuds can also add the ability to raise the sound up to 20 decibels. ANC features in Galaxy Buds Pro can be considered excellent, as when we tested it, the indoor air conditioners, washing machines, PC fan noise, etc., can be almost silenced.



The earbuds consist of an 11mm woofer unit and a 6.5mm tweeter unit. Sound tuning is handled by the AKG brand of Harman International Industries, an audio equipment manufacturer under Samsung's umbrella. It also incorporates three microphones (two outside / one inside) and a VPU (Voice Pickup Unit) to provide high-quality voice even when making hands-free calls.

A touch sensor is placed on the outside of the earbuds. You can perform operations such as "play / stop the music" and "forward / backward music" with simple gestures such as tap and tap & hold to the earbuds (without using a connected smartphone).

The built-in battery capacity is 61mAh for each of the left and right earbuds, while the charging case stores up to 472mAh power. The playable music time using the earbuds is approximately 5 hours with the earbuds alone (with ANC enabled). Combined with the charging case, it can be extended for a total of 18 hours. 
 

 
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro supports quick charging. Charging case After about 5 minutes, you can play music for about 1 hour. The charging case itself supports wired charging using an external input/output terminal (USB Type-C). In a nutshell, the Galaxy Buds Pro is the best of the Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Buds Live. The soft silicone ear tips inherited from the Galaxy Buds+ fit your ears perfectly, have high sound insulation (passive noise-canceling function) and are comfortable to wear. It's relatively lightweight but feels so firm, so you don't have to worry about it coming off your ears when jogging or exercising.

The woofer responsible for the bass is set relatively neutral so that the bass is not too heavy. So, if you want more deep bass, you can choose your favorite sound quality from the preset equalizers (bass boost, soft, dynamic, clear, and treble boost). Overall, we would say that Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is one of the best kinds of earbuds that we have ever tested.

There are three colors available which are Phantom Violet, Black, and Silver. In summary, we would say that it is an entirely wireless earphone unique to Galaxy, with sufficient sound quality, powerful noise-canceling, easy-to-use external sound capture, and automatic voice detection with exceptional performance.

Tun Dr. Mahathir: More Time Must Be Spent on Developing the Character of Students

Malaysia’s former premier speaks his mind on Malaysia’s education landscape



As conversations surrounding the education landscape grow in volume – with schools reopening soon, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, former 4th and 7th Prime Minister of Malaysia spoke his mind on the state of Malaysia’s education landscape – at the most recent edition of world’s foremost international youth and education focused conference – School of Tomorrow: A World of Tomorrow: From Darkness to Light.

In conversation with Beaconhouse CEO Kasim Kasuri, the iconic leader touched on a variety of topics including landscape of learning in Malaysia, the nation’s handling of the pandemic and the role of values-based democracy in propelling the nation to success amongst other topics.

Tun Dr Mahathir sharing his thoughts on education during SOT 12

Tun Dr. Mahathir emphasised that educators and policy makers needed to relook their approach and objective of educating children. “In education, we concentrate on giving information, but we spend little time on developing the character of students. Yes, the information will help them in later life but if their characters are bad then they cannot benefit from the information. I think schools should have a proper system of imparting good character, good values to the students because only good values will give good result from the knowledge that you have acquired.”

Meanwhile, commenting on the highly debated topic of the core teaching language, Tun Dr. Mahathir said, “Every nation wishes to impose their identity, and language of course determines a nation’s identity. But while we want to promote our language, we also have a need to acquire current knowledge and the current knowledge comes to us not in our language, it comes to us in English. To keep up with the times, we have to learn that knowledge in the language in which it is presented.

The conversation occurred as part of the 3-day virtual conference featured a series of one-on-one conversations, panel discussions, presentations, workshops and parliamentary-style debates. The sessions were aimed at answering difficult questions for a world facing challenges of the COVID-19 impact on education, economies and a safer, balanced future in general.

This most recent edition of SOT also featured other prominent thought leaders and industry shapers including Mr Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri, former Foreign Minister of Pakistan; Lord Jim Knight, Former UK Minister of State for Schools; Professor Dr Ger Graus OBE, Global Director of Education, KidZania and Dr Bo Stjerne Thomsen, Vice-President and Chair, Learning through Play, LEGO Foundation amongst others.

Other topics that were touched on over the course of the 24 live sessions were artificial intelligence, gender-based censorship, climate change and child mental wellness.

Alister Barthlomew
Speaking about the Conference, Alister Bartholomew, Regional Director Southeast Asia for Beaconhouse School, said School of Tomorrow has once again proven to be an incredible success and towards the school’s overall mission of building life-long learners., “We are honoured to have been able to host so many iconic and important speakers during this edition of School of Tomorrow. Their influential views and opinions have already reached out to millions across the globe and will have the power to shape the very future of education.”

“These educational and insightful thoughts and opinions shared at SOT will trickle down to Beaconhouse schools all over the world, such as the Malaysian Beaconhouse group of schools, in our journey to build a global community of lifelong learners,” he added.

Now in its 12th edition, School of Tomorrow was first held in 2000 for the benefit of the global education industry, organised by Beaconhouse as part of its on-going commitment to its social responsibility. Over the years, the series has evolved and grown, featuring a total of close to 600 speakers including heads of nations and heads of states as well as educators, futurists, technologists & scientists, environmentalists, political & business leaders, performing & visual artists, writers & poets, journalists & filmmakers, social activists and others from around the world.

TransferWise rebrands to Wise, enters new phase of growth in Malaysia

  • The tech company has created a cross-border network that works to meet international banking needs for people, businesses and banks
  • Bolstering of local team with appointment of country manager, Ms Lim Paik Wan
  • Money transfer availability expanded to foreign workers in Malaysia

TransferWise today announces its rebranding to Wise [1], and the appointment of local country manager Ms Lim Paik Wan.

Originally launched in 2011 as a money transfer service for people, the company has expanded to build a cross-border payments network helping to make international banking cheaper, faster and more pleasant for its 10 million customers.

The company processes £4.5 billion (RM25.2 billion) in cross-border transactions every month, with customers saving themselves a total of approximately £1 billion (RM5.6 billion) a year compared to making the same transaction with their bank.

The money transfer service, now a feature of the Wise account, is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to send and receive money around the world at up to 4x cheaper than banks.

Lim Paik Wan
The company also announces the bolstering of its Malaysia presence with the appointment of Ms Lim Paik Wan as the Malaysia country manager for Wise — who will be responsible for leading and expanding Wise ’s presence and growth in the country.

Foreign workers in Malaysia can now also use Wise to send remittances back home [2] to their family members’ bank accounts and e-wallets without paying costly fees and markups by other service providers — saving money which can stay in their pockets or go towards sending a bigger remittance volume.

As a profitable, sustainable company with a long history, Wise is here to serve Malaysian consumers for years to come.

Ms Lim Paik Wan, Malaysia Country manager, Wise, said: “I am excited to be a part of the team working towards the Wise mission — to make cross-currency payments as fast, easy, transparent and cheap as possible. Based on a recent survey [3] that we commissioned, we know that 50% of Malaysians are keen to save on remittance costs and 57% would appreciate transfers reaching its recipients more quickly, and we are determined to meet their concerns.

“We are also thrilled to expand the availability of international money transfer services to foreign workers, who can also benefit from a low-cost, secure and completely online option for their remittance needs.”

Kristo Käärmann, CEO and co-founder, Wise said: “Today our name catches up with who we’re already building for - a community of people and businesses with multi-currency lives. That community now even includes the banks themselves. We’ve evolved to fix more than just money transfer, but the core experience of using Wise will remain faster, cheaper, and more convenient than anything else. Our mission remains the same. We’re still making — and always will be making — money work without borders.”

From today, customers can opt into the website in its new home: Wise.com. The final switchover for all customers to the Wise brand will take place in March 2021.

[1] Wise is the trading name of TransferWise Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
[2] Total transaction limit of RM5,000 per month, with funds remitted to the individual’s home country only and with a limit of 5 beneficiaries.
[3] Independent survey conducted by Ipsos from 27 Nov to 3 Dec 2020, collecting 1,000 respondents targeting both citizens and expatriates living in Malaysia who have sent an overseas remittance in the past 12 months.

As a global digital travel platform, Agoda, presents travellers with easy access to a global network of over 2 million properties across the world, and is saluting the tens of thousands of “Hospitality Champs” in Malaysia - those who go over and beyond their call of duty, to make your stay, meal or trip extra memorable, and all for the love of their job. You know who they are, it might be the concierge that found you the perfect romantic dining spot, the housekeeping staff that laid out extra treats or helped with extra amenities to make your family stay more enjoyable, or the chef who created the perfect breakfast omelette or the hotel General Manager, who adds that extra level of service that makes your experience sublime – the ones who make us feel like a million bucks; like we are the most important people in the world.

“There is a notable maxim among those in the hospitality and tourism sectors, that it’s not necessarily the big things, but rather the little things that hospitality staff do to make their guests’ day, that really make them stand out and get noticed. These staff champion our industry through good and bad times by going above and beyond their roles and responsibilities, with one mission in their minds – to make their guests happy and their stay memorable,” said Mr. Errol Cooke, Vice President of Partner Services, Agoda.

“At Agoda we want to pay tribute to these Hospitality Champions, who display this zeal and passion, all for the love of their job and their guests via the #AgodaHospitalityChamps campaign, which invites travellers and industry patrons to nominate their Hospitality Champ, outlining what they did to make their stay so memorable, so we can send them on a well-deserved getaway,” he explained.

The #AgodaHospitalityChamps campaign launches on 18 February 2020, inviting Malaysia residents to nominate their hospitality champions and share their story. The Agoda Hospitality Champ nominee could be anyone working within the hospitality industry, be that in hotels or holiday accommodation, transportation including airlines, buses, car rental or tour guides.

Visit https://bit.ly/3dgEFjd and share your nominations now for the chance to win a break ($750 AgodaCash) for each of the top three nominees, plus $250 AgodaCash each for the nominators.

Nominations and entries will be judged on the inspirational power, with a clear demonstration of how the nominated Hospitality Champ has excelled in their service or gone above and beyond to showcase exceptional standards in hospitality, plus clarity of story - the ability to convey the story in an interesting and engaging manner.

Each participant is only entitled to submit one entry. However, the nominated Hospitality Champion can be nominated by more than one entrant.

Here’s what’s up for grabs. The three best heart-warming stories will win the respective Agoda Hospitality Champ a getaway in the form of RM3000 (USD 750) in AgodaCash, which is valid for accommodation bookings on Agoda.. Meanwhile, the winning entrants will themselves win RM1000 (USD 250) in AgodaCash.

So what are you waiting for, Malaysia? Reciprocate your love this season for our Hospitality Champs. This is essentially your platform to pay tribute to our Hospitality Champs all across the country. Do it soon, however, because entries will only be accepted until 4 March 2021. Make your voice count!

Find Love, Friendship And More Through Valentines Event In PUBG Mobile

A “Dream Team” campaign, sharing player’s stories - including marriage proposal via PUBG MOBILE in-game surprise



Set in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, PUBG MOBILE encourages the community members to express their feelings for the special one through in-game surprises. Debuting a heartfelt video about love and friendship between squad mates, this exclusive recap showcases several instances of PUBG MOBILE players expressing their gratitude towards one another, including multiple guest appearances from popular content creators in Malaysia and around the world.

Earlier this month, PUBG MOBILE united players around the world to create unique in-game surprises for their cherished teammates. As part of the content update Version 1.2 “Dream Team: My Heartfelt Message” event, players can collaborate with PUBG MOBILE for confessions of love, birthday wishes, and expressions of gratitude to squad mates - even marriage proposals! By sending a request form and writing their short story, players with the best messages will have the chance to implement customized pop-up banners, advertisements and aircraft cards for their friends, team mates or loved one to see in-game.

This is also the first of its kind in mobile games to express the hearts of players in such a special way. During this event, PUBG MOBILE expressed its care, attention, and respect to its players. Players also expressed their appreciation, support and trust in their teammates through this event. Check out each “Dream Team Surprise” and even see how popular influencers such as ManParang from Malaysia, Bennymoza and Bangpen from Indonesia, Powerbang and ZooTay, United States and more expressed their gratitude to those closest to them. Below are some of the surprise stories that players can tune into:



Story from ManParang, a Malaysian PUBG MOBILE pro player and a loving husband. He prepares an in-game surprise and invites his beloved wife, Umara, to play PUBG MOBILE together on Valentine's Day. In this surprise, ManParang expressed his love and gratitude for Umara support in his Esports career. A romantic yet emotional moment for both of them. “On this occasion, I’d like to say thank you to my wife who always accompanies me during tournaments and streaming. We also really appreciate PUBG MOBILE support and involvement which help make my husband what he is today, a professional esports player.”



Lucas and Natalia's surprise story from South America who met during a PUBG MOBILE live stream and gradually became a couple. On the eve of Valentine's Day, when they were in-game as usual, Lucas gave a heartfelt confession to his love, Natalia, and surprised her with a marriage proposal. With PUBG MOBILE as a witness, they had a successful engagement and spent a very meaningful Valentine's Day. "I just want to say that I love you, and you are the most special person I have nowadays in my life. I thank God for you showing up on my PUBG MOBILE live stream. Since then, you have become my partner in duo games and also my partner in life. Bringing you from Rio Grande do Sul to Minas was the best choice I've made. I want to thank you for everything that you have done for me and what you are still doing, and say that you are an amazing woman. I have this special surprise for you. I hope you like it!"



Additionally, there are more and more stories from fans which can be watched on the official PUBG MOBILE YouTube channel here.

ZooTay and Sakuma from North America that plan to pursue gaming and Esports together and many more!

Quick Tips to Achieve Decoration Freedom with Your TV

In the ‘new normal,’ people are spending most their time at home. One of the outcomes of the current situation is that interest in interior decorating has never been higher, especially when it comes to redesigning the living room – the centre of daily life in most households. Interior designer Katharine Pooley suggested that the crisis will impact how we design our home [1]. At the centre of most living rooms is the TV, which has undoubtedly become more important as of late given its ability to deliver entertainment, information, and virtual interaction. That is why it comes as no surprise when Malaysian total TV viewing time had a staggering increase of 49% early this year [2]. The TV is also inextricably linked to one’s décor, with today’s large screen-sizes often forcing design concessions and using up a good deal of space in the process. The real question is, how would it be possible to achieve freedom in decoration with your TV?



Find yourself a TV with versatility capability
Whatever you envision for your space, a modern TV should help you to make it a reality. The versatility of a TV with understated minimalist design is perfect at home, irrespective of texture or colour around it. On top of that, a TV with slender and sophisticated form looks sublime from every angle – as do images displayed on its stunning OLED screen, which uses self-lighting pixels to deliver sumptuous colours and incredible contrast.

Not just a great TV, LG OLED GX can be a good example that guarantees true decorating versatility, bringing elegance and artistry to the living room and allowing homeowners to follow their own decorating tastes without making compromises. Integrating seamlessly with any lifestyle, LG OLED GX enables you to create the living space you want, no matter if you prefer minimalism or bold use of colour, traditional or contemporary style, or anything else.



Wall-mounted TV is a great choice
A wall-mounted TV may take a little bit more work to disguise as a frame. While it does not necessarily act as a piece of art, you can at least hang other pieces around it to create a very fancy gallery wall. All the framed photos or artwork will lay flush with the TV, so it won't look super awkward.

Wall-mounted TV can provide more room to move, resulting in decoration freedom. One of the most obvious benefits of a wall-mounted TV is the amount of space it opens up in the room itself. Without the need for a TV cabinet, shelf, or entertainment unit, you can unleash the potential of your space in whatever way you choose.

A standout example from this growing category is the LG Gallery Design TV. Sporting the LG’s gorgeous Gallery design, the advanced TV combines a slim form factor that saves space; a minimalist aesthetic that fits with and elevates any decorating style along with the first-class picture quality and state-of-the-art features LG OLED TV is known for.

LG OLED GX saves even more room than most wall-mountable models as it does not require a separate box – its slender frame cleverly housing all necessary components and its specially designed wall mount. The flawlessness of its flush-to-the-wall design instantly adds value to your environment, improving flow and fitting in effortlessly with the way you like to live. It comes with a mount that allows it to hang completely flat on the wall. You know, as opposed to the clunkier wall mounts that cause your TV to unattractively stick out.

Caters your entertainment needs
It is not a real TV if it does not carry the basic entertainment features, which covers its ability to bring movies, TV shows, sports, and games to life like never before. You can always opt for a TV with OLED panel with self-lighting pixels that be turned on and off individually, resulting in more natural colours, greater contrast, and detail so real you can practically touch it. For instance, LG OLED GX is packed with features that enrich the home entertainment experience, such as Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Atmos and Filmmaker Mode, and diverse selection of streaming apps [3] that supply an amazing array of premium content.

A great TV will not just boost your viewing enjoyment, but also gives you more interior design options and lets you reclaim the living room. And whether it is the new normal or back to normal, a TV that can do all that has to be a good thing.

Samsung Develops Industry’s First High Bandwidth Memory with AI Processing Power

The new architecture will deliver over twice the system performance and reduce energy consumption by more than 70%

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has developed the industry's first High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) processing power — the HBM-PIM. The new processing-in-memory (PIM) architecture brings powerful AI computing capabilities inside high-performance memory, to accelerate large-scale processing in data centers, high performance computing (HPC) systems and AI-enabled mobile applications.

Kwangil Park, senior vice president of Memory Product Planning at Samsung Electronics stated, "Our groundbreaking HBM-PIM is the industry's first programmable PIM solution tailored for diverse AI-driven workloads such as HPC, training and inference. We plan to build upon this breakthrough by further collaborating with AI solution providers for even more advanced PIM-powered applications."

Rick Stevens, Argonne’s Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences commented, “I’m delighted to see that Samsung is addressing the memory bandwidth/power challenges for HPC and AI computing. HBM-PIM design has demonstrated impressive performance and power gains on important classes of AI applications, so we look forward to working together to evaluate its performance on additional problems of interest to Argonne National Laboratory.”

Most of today's computing systems are based on the von Neumann architecture, which uses separate processor and memory units to carry out millions of intricate data processing tasks. This sequential processing approach requires data to constantly move back and forth, resulting in a system-slowing bottleneck especially when handling ever-increasing volumes of data.

Instead, the HBM-PIM brings processing power directly to where the data is stored by placing a DRAM-optimized AI engine inside each memory bank — a storage sub-unit — enabling parallel processing and minimizing data movement. When applied to Samsung's existing HBM2 Aquabolt solution, the new architecture is able to deliver over twice the system performance while reducing energy consumption by more than 70%. The HBM-PIM also does not require any hardware or software changes, allowing faster integration into existing systems.

Samsung’s paper on the HBM-PIM has been selected for presentation at the renowned International Solid-State Circuits Virtual Conference (ISSCC) held through Feb. 22. Samsung’s HBM-PIM is now being tested inside AI accelerators by leading AI solution partners, with all validations expected to be completed within the first half of this year.

In Depth Review: Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

No comments
There are only two reasons why you are here. First, you are considering to buy the new Samsung S21 Ultra and now looking for an explanation on why you should buy it. Second, you already have the S21 Ultra and want to find out more about what makes S21 Ultra the best investment that you make for your smartphone gadget this year. Well, you are lucky as we will be sharing our experience after using the S21 Ultra for several weeks now. But, in case you missed out our unboxing article earlier this year, please read it here to find out what you get when you purchase S21 Ultra.



SAMSUNG S21 ULTRA 5G – BODY
S21 Ultra has the perfect dimensions for us. We can easily access both buttons on the right, and we can even use the keyboard only by using one. With the size being 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9 mm, S21 Ultra 5G is the largest than other variants under the S21 Series.



The weight of the device is only 227 grams, which is surprisingly lighter than we expected. As looking at their virtual launching event earlier this year, we are assuming the device to be at least slightly heavier than standard device as it comes with a lot of unique features. The Galaxy S21 Ultra dimensions are large, but the width of 75.6 mm keeps this phone comfortable in our hands. But those with small hands might have a hard time grasping them.

With the aluminium frame, the Galaxy S21 Ultra also has two Exclusive Colorways - Phantom Black and Silver and offers better durability with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus ™, the toughest Gorilla Glass yet. According to Corning statement in July 2020, Samsung is the first one to adopt Gorilla Glass Victus in their device. In their statement also, Corning claimed that their Gorilla Glass Victus significantly improves both drop and scratch performance for the first time in the Gorilla Glass family, addressing consumer demand for improved durability.



Same as previous S20 Series, Samsung S21 Ultra 5G are also rated with IP68 dust and water-resistant (up to 1.5 meters for 30 mins). On top of that, Samsung S21 Ultra 5G supports the everyone favourite function, 'S Pen' for the first time in the Galaxy S Series. The S Pen, which used on the previous Galaxy Note or Tab, can also be used on S21 Ultra 5G to write, draw and edit photos. However, you will need to purchase it separately, and there is no compartment to insert your S Pen on this device, but you may buy the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Silicone Cover with S-Pen compartment here.



Samsung released two versions of the S Pen specifically for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, namely the standard S Pen and S Pen Pro. Currently, only available standard S Pen sold as a package with a special casing Smart Clear View Cover and Silicone Cover. In the future, Samsung will present the S Pen Pro, which will be much bigger and supported by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to use the Air Actions feature like the Galaxy Note20 Series.



Moving on its unique and bold camera design, Samsung called it a Contour Cut camera. The rear camera module perfectly blends the left frame to the smartphone body, allowing you to feel a new sense. With this design, the rear quad camera looks unique, sleek, yet striking. The likes and dislikes may differ depending on the user. We love it as it makes the smartphone and the camera itself looks more bold and brave. The front screen has an Infinity-O Display design, where the front camera is in the form of a punch-hole in the middle with a resolution of 40MP.



Speaking of Samsung, it uses an edge display with curved sides, but the lower model has a flat display, and this Galaxy S21 Ultra is not as too curvy as the previous model, it is only slightly curved. Due to its wide width (75.6 mm), edge displays are more comfortable to grip than flat displays. The curve on the side of the backside has a more rounded shape, making it easier to fit in the palm of your hand.

The S21 Ultra has a 1.7x larger on-screen fingerprint sensor than the S20 Ultra and is much faster. It's not often talked about, but this is an excellent featured to be mention. Today, when face recognition no longer can be used effectively as you sometimes will be wearing a face mask, having a fingerprint sensor for us is very helpful. Every time we go out, we are so glad we had these features.

SAMSUNG S21 ULTRA 5G – DISPLAY
In terms of display, we don't find any problem using the device under bright daylight. Thanks to its Dynamic AMOLED 2X. It automatically amps up to a super-bright 1,500 nits when necessary, thanks to its Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. It means that you no longer have to cover your screen with your palm when showing your photos or video with other people outdoors under bright sunlight.

On Samsung S21 Ultra, you no longer have to decide between the smoothness of a 120Hz refresh rate and a Quad HD+ display as you can choose both. The S21 Ultra display size is the largest among the other S21 Series, 6.8 inches with 1440 x 3200 pixels. When watching a video, it fits perfectly with each video's frame rate, and when playing a game, you can play at 120Hz.



Given that crispness and responsiveness are the best display requirements, we can't think of a smartphone that can beat the image quality and refresh rate of the S21 Ultra. The 120Hz screen is already commonplace for high-end models, and without it, it won't be a match.

Eye Comfort Shield is a nice feature. It adjusts the screen's colour temperature according to the time of day and how you use it. If you've used the nightshift feature or something similar, you know what it is. This function slowly shifts the screen's white balance toward the yellow direction, reducing blue light and preventing the body clock from being disturbed. This feature is turned off by default, so you'll need to change the setting.

SAMSUNG S21 ULTRA 5G – CAMERA
It’s definitely not a new and better smartphone if it’s not with a better camera upgrade. One of the highlights of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G camera is a 108 MP f / 1.8 (Wide) primary camera sensor rarely found in other flagship smartphones. Samsung has also brought technology improvements to this 108 MP camera. S21 Ultra camera sensor packs the Super PD Autofocus Plus feature for more accurate autofocus. The Super PD Autofocus Plus feature can help improve photos of fast-moving objects in low light situations. The camera sensor can capture a sharper, more vivid image in ultra-high resolution with faster autofocus.



The second significant improvement to the 108 MP camera sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the Smart ISO Pro technology which simultaneously captures photo frames in high and low ISO, then combines them into one image in 12-bit colour depth and with noise reduction.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G 108 MP camera also has 100x zoom capability, which improves than the previous generation. There is a Zoom Lock feature with artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can lock the frame and stabilize photos and videos. The new sensor design has also optimized energy consumption, offering additional power efficiency to the overall Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G device. 

Original Image File [Click Here]

One surprise factor of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G camera is the presence of 2 telephoto cameras, 10 MP f / 4.9 (periscope telephoto) and 10 MP f / 2.4 (Telephoto). This is the first time that Samsung has applied dual Tele-Lens to smartphones. Both have Dual-Pixel technology capabilities and support 3x and 10x optical zoom features. Both Telephoto lenses from Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G supported by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology help overcome stability problems when shooting or recording video.

The fourth camera of Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, 12 MP f / 2.2 (Ultra-Wide) also features dual-pixel PDAF technology and Super Steady video features. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G users can record video with an Ultra-Wide lens that can run the Super Steady feature so that the captured image remains stable.

Samsung also supplies the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with a larger 40 MP f / 2.2 (Wide) selfie camera compared to the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G and Samsung Galaxy S21 + 5G resolution of 10 MP. This Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G selfie camera features Dual video call support, Auto-HDR and 4K @ 30 / 60fps and 1080p @ 30fps video recording.

Another camera feature of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G that users can use, among others, is Director's View which allows the user to view the video recording results from each lens, then change the camera used without stopping the recording process. You can also use the Vlogger View feature to capture every moment using the rear camera and record the reaction's expression from that moment using the front camera simultaneously.



One of the camera's features that we love so much is their Single Take mode. Users can take multiple styles and versions of photos simultaneously with one click. To use this feature, users only need to spend about 10 seconds to take a picture. If the user cannot decide which version of the photo they may like, the artificial intelligence in the Galaxy S21 Series 5G will choose the image it thinks is the best for you.

Not only photos, but Single Take can also produce three kinds of video styles in addition to the original video, which consists of the best image curation videos, time-lapse, and boomerang. For Single Take featured on the Galaxy S21 Series 5G, Samsung has equipped it with pro mode features such as Dynamic Slow-Mo and Highlight Video, increasing the variety of image content produced simultaneously.



On top of that, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Portrait Mode makes it easier for Galaxy S21 Series 5G users to photograph an object. Thanks to enhanced artificial intelligence technology, users now don't have to bother with focus and light for maximum portrait results. Artificial intelligence (AI) makes the device automatically separate objects from the background, so users can easily remove or whiten the background, including creating a bokeh effect where the background becomes blurred. It is suitable for users who want to capture their pets in epic portraits.

In addition to 8K shooting for video from the primary camera, S21 Ultra 5G is also supported 4K / 60fps shooting. Colourful night mode photography is also possible.
