Samsung initially launched its early 2021 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, in a number of colors including Phantom Black and Phantom Gray. However, its latest option freshly released to the US market is a little less sober: Navy. This new shade is available on Best Buy's website as an unlocked or Verizon device.

The vast majority of Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra units sold through retail stores might ship in its Phantom Black colorway, although its Gray (and Silver, if the company in question is lucky) equivalents might also be on the cards. However, it is now available in a new shade that might interest some wavering potential customers: Navy.

The premium, 108MP main camera-toting Samsung phone is now listed on Best Buy's website in this color. There is also a Phantom Navy style that was only available via the OEM's own website at the Galaxy S21 Ultra's launch; however, the "new" color appears to vary in that it lacks the carbon-fiber accent for the flagship's epic camera hump that graces the initially exclusive marketing theme.

Best Buy now stocks the 'plain' Navy S21 Ultra as either carrier-unlocked or Verizon-specific Snapdragon 888-powered 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage SKUs. They are priced at US$999.99 for the former or $100 extra for the latter. This is $200 or $100 off the phones' starting prices.

Alternatively, buy an unlocked S21 Ultra on Amazon for $1000 (albeit without Navy options)

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
