The epic new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, S21+ 5G and S21 Ultra 5G are now available to pre-order online on O2 custom plans, ahead of their launch on 29 January.
Available in six standout colours – Phantom Grey, Phantom Pink, Phantom Violet, Phantom White, Phantom Black and Phantom Silver – the latest Samsung Galaxy S21 Series come with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display and adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz, meaning scrolling through social feeds or high-speed gaming will feel ultra-smooth.
All three devices come with Samsung’s next generation cameras to help customers take their best shots yet, with the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G both featuring a 12MP wide, 64MP telephoto and 12MP ultra-wide lenses. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G’s quad camera boasts a 108MP wide lens to capture extraordinary detail, even at night.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G also has a 10MP front camera and increased facial recognition technology which automatically captures 14 creative versions of the images and videos being taken, helping users take the perfect shot first time. Whilst the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G comes with a mighty 40MP front camera. All three handsets are able to capture video in incredibly crisp 8K, ensuring your content will be more stunning than ever, no matter the subject.
Customers can get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S21 series with an impressive free six months of data and calls on tariffs 30GB and above, including:
O2’s custom plans allows customers to get any device they have their heart set on at a more affordable rate, with the ability to choose how much they want to pay upfront, the length of their Device Plan, selecting anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments), as well as having the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs from a family of tariffs.
Customers will also be eligible for a variety of O2 exclusives including 6 months of Disney+ for new and upgrading customers. Existing O2 customers can add Disney+ to their plan for £5.99 a month and receive £2 off their monthly airtime bill.
What’s more, customers that recycle their old phone can get up to £350 when they upgrade before the 31 March. With stores currently closed, customers can recycle online and receive an extra £150 on top of the value of their handset at www.o2.co.uk/recycle.
But it doesn’t stop there. Any customer who pre-orders the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G or S21+ 5G can claim a pair of Galaxy Buds Live and a SmartTag worth a combined £188.99. Whilst customers who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Ultra 5G can claim a pair of Galaxy Buds Pro and a SmartTag, worth a total value of £248.99.

So who thinks they'll be looking to buy or upgrade to one of these brand new Samsung Galaxy S21 devices? They look stunning and have some seriously impressive tech inside them. I know I'm tempted!
Weird - they're Bitly short links that redirect to the O2 website. I've just tested it on two devices, on and off wifi, and all links seem to load fine. Still getting an error? I just wonder if there was a glitch earlier when you tried that's now sorted, or if for some reason Bitly is being blocked on your end?
I've preordered the Ultra in black 256GB to upgrade my S20 ultra roll on the 29th!
And I found a voucher code for £100 off my upfront cost so very happy with that.
Amazing stuff! Can I just say how jealous I am? I've got a Note 10 Plus 5G and I'm seriously tempted, but I'd have £350 I'd need to pay off on my current device plan. It almost pains me, but I think i'll need to stick with this and with any luck Samsung might have a new Note to unveil sometime in Q3/Q4 that'll have a similar design (looks stunning!), and specs to match.
