Going from the Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S21 Ultra means you would have skipped a few generations, and also gone from the standard model to the ultra-branded model. This equates to a display that is a full inch larger. The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x Infinity-O display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440. The S21 Ultra display also supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Due to skipping a few generations, you would see a large boost in performance, which comes courtesy of the 8-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor and up to 12GB of RAM found in the S21 Ultra. Other key specs for the Galaxy S21 Ultra include up to 512GB of internal storage, a 5000 mAh battery, a 40MP selfie camera, and a rear-camera array that includes a 108MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, 10MP telephoto, and 10MP periscope zoom.
