JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 21 September 2021 – From the comfort of a sandy beach in Cape Town in late August, renowned cinematographer Scott Hurley raised his Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to the sunlit skies. Just a few seconds later, after effortlessly activating the Galaxy S21’s epic 100x Zoom feature, his phone screen transformed from blue skies, to a sudden hint of the Earth’s atmosphere – to a breath-taking revelation of the moon in all its glory and detail. Even Scott couldn’t help but describe the camera as ‘insane”. The TikTok video seemingly commanded the moon to be viewed by excited South Africans within seconds. It was no surprise that it got over 1.6 Million views within 48 hours and currently sitting at 4 million views. This was easily his most popular video share ever.


Challenging the status quo, Scott Hurley’s video is a showcase of just one reason why the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is a massive hit in South Africa and across the world. Like many content creators and everyone with a passion for capturing life’s greatest moments, Scott is clearly a fan of the device’s bold, pro-grade camera system, which is in a category of its own, and its 108-megapixel resolution – the highest possible resolution on a smartphone. He has even challenged others to use the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to reach for the stars like a professional.


Even though Scott took daylight to another level, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is equally ready to take on the night no matter where you are. The device’s Bright Night sensor is Samsung’s biggest leap in low light photography, capturing bright, vivid colours in the dark of night. You can shoot clear images with more speed and significantly less noise, while also controlling exposure time. Clearly light years ahead, it’s no wonder that the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G continues to receive rave reviews around the world and in South Africa. It is powered by the most advanced processor ever on a Galaxy device, stunning edge-to-edge 120Hz displays, and a large battery for uninterrupted productivity and entertainment. There is no doubt that the Galaxy S21 Series builds on its impressive legacy to offer a premium flagship experience that makes every day epic. The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G series is loaded with state-of-the-art innovations, is 5G-enabled, includes 8K video capabilities and has S Pen compatibility, which means you can finesse and fine-tune while editing your videos down to the last frame, with precision that your finger simply can’t touch. All of these features combine to create a device that makes shooting for the moon simply effortless.
