Whether you prefer the Samsung Galaxy S21, or the slightly larger S21+, you'll find identical camera systems on both handsets. Designed by Samsung to make photography and videography a breeze on your smartphone, this triple-lens camera setup is sure to have all your needs covered.
From the moment you open up the 12MP+12MP+64MP rear camera, you're sure to be impressed. The main 12MP lens on both S21 devices comes with optical image stabilisation to keep your shots in focus, while the second 12MP ultra-wide lens helps you fit more into the frame without needing to take a step back. The final 64MP telephoto lens is all you need to create a sense of depth in your shots too, and it's perfect for portraits.
Photography features like Single Take, Night Mode and Super Steady Mode help to take your photos and videos to the next level - ensuring you can capture a single moment at multiple angles, shoot in darkness and steady any unwanted shakiness in a recording. Speaking of video, the S21 and S21+ are capable of filming in 8K - the highest resolution currently available. You can even edit in 8K using the S21 duo too, without having to import footage to a different device.

The premium handset from Samsung's 2021 flagship series, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra certainly doesn't hold back when it comes to cameras. Front and back you can enjoy the very best Samsung photography tech, starting with the outstanding triple-lens rear camera. The rear camera system not only features a cutting-edge dual telephoto lens, but it includes an advanced Laser AF sensor to keep your shots focused.
The main 108MP wide lens on the S21 Ultra is the star of the show, and it's more than capable of producing beautiful, professional-quality photos in any environment.

Super Steady Mode will be your best friend for action shots - just switch it on to instantly stabilise your footage.
Of course, we can't forget about selfie cam either. The wide-lens 40MP front facing camera is guaranteed to capture your good side, and auto focus on the front will help to counteract any unwanted blur.
