A four-lens setup includes an ultra-high resolution 200MP camera with the biggest Pixel sensor to grace a Galaxy phone to date. You can take clearer and more detailed night shots than ever before, as this Pixel is highly equipped to distinguish details in low-lit environments. There's also a 12MP dual-pixel selfie camera, special nano-coated Super Clear Glass on the rear and wide-angle camera lenses.

Galaxy S21 Ultra

The camera quality is the S21 Ultra’s main advantage over the regular S21 and the S21 Plus. There’s a 108MP wide sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a laser auto-focus sensor to capture a stunning level of detail in sharp focus.
