The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has a dedicated 10x optical zoom camera, meaning it takes super close-up photos with no discernible loss in quality. Most smartphones available until now have offered a 2x, 3x, or sometimes a 5x optical zoom feature, but made do with a digital zoom beyond that, which noticeably compromises on quality.
However, there is one other high-profile phone with a 10x zoom: The Huawei P40 Pro Plus. Announced in March 2020, it became available around June last year, meaning it pre-dates the Galaxy S21 Ultra by quite some time.
