Galaxy S21 5G Series sees record Pre-Order sales in UK

Galaxy S21 5G Series beats pre-order records of both the Galaxy S20 and S10 Series.

Following the launch of the Galaxy S21 5G Series last month, Samsung says it has seen record numbers of UK pre-orders for its new flagship range – beating the performance of both the Galaxy S20 and S10 Series.

Across the latest S21 5G Series, the S21 Ultra 5G has proven to be the most popular model for UK pre-order, accounting for over half of sales.

“Over the last twelve months, technology has been the vital thread that has maintained our connections. Demand for innovation is growing, and this is reflected in the pre-order results we have seen across our Galaxy S21 5G Series, as well as devices within our wider ecosystem such as our Galaxy Book Flex2 5G laptop and our Galaxy Buds Pro headphones which are already receiving industry accolades” said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President for Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland.

“This year we have delivered innovation in spades with our flagship range which, for the first time, is powered by 5G throughout and comes with industry-leading cameras, display and battery. And for those who want the latest in functionality, we have introduced our much-loved S-Pen to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G as the ultimate assistant in creativity and productivity.”

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G delivers Samsung’s most advanced pro-grade camera system, so that you can capture stunning, studio-quality photos in various lightings and settings.

It has a quad rear camera (ultra-wide, wide and dual tele-lenses) that features a new 108MP pro sensor, from which you can capture 12 bit HDR photos with 64 times richer colour and more than three times wider dynamic range, allowing you to capture pro-grade content.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the largest member of the Galaxy S21 5G Series with an epic 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. For the first time, users no longer have to decide between the smoothness of a 120Hz refresh rate and a Quad HD+ display — on S21 Ultra 5G, you can choose both. The screen’s refresh rate adjusts to the content you’re viewing from 10Hz to 120Hz to ensure you enjoy the best image, whilst stretching your battery life even further.

For the first time on any S Series device, Samsung is brought the S Pen experience to the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G with Wacom’s technology. From drawing to note-taking to editing photos and signing documents, now you can unlock the power of the S Pen on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G

Galaxy S21 5G was designed for those who want a light design and compact 6.2-inch display. Galaxy S21+ 5G sports an expanded 6.7-inch display and a larger battery, perfect for marathon gamers and streaming content.

Galaxy S21 5G touts an intelligent, edge-to-edge Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O display with adaptive 120Hz refresh rate for smoother scrolling and viewing, which is easy on the eyes. To help reduce eye fatigue, the new Eye Comfort Shield automatically adjusts the blue light based on the time of day, content you’re viewing, and your bedtime.
