Samsung’s 6.8-inch Galaxy S21 Ultra is among the OEM’s largest phones ever. That means you may struggle to fit the beast in your pocket without freeing up some extra space. One easy way to do just that is to leave your bulky old wallet behind. If you’re considering an Ultra move, here are the best Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet cases to buy.

The best Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet cases:
Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to add to this list of the best Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet cases if new options launch.
Smartish Wallet Slayer
The Wallet Slayer from Smartish is here to change how most people see wallet cases. There’s nothing wrong with a folding folio design, but the Wallet Slayer relies on a clever rear-mounted pocket instead. You can grab the case in a few different patterns for your Galaxy S21 Ultra, and you should have no problem packing a few cards into the slow. However, you may have to empty your cash and cards to charge wirelessly.
Spigen Slim Armor CS
Spigen takes phone cases to a new level, offering over half a dozen options for just about any phone on the market. The Slim Armor CS is one of the best wallets available for the Galaxy S21 ultra, though it skips the traditional folding design. You can open the rear-mounted trap door to access your cards or cash at any point. Spigen’s case also relies on Air Cushion Technology to protect against drops from most heights. Unfortunately, you’ll have to remove your cards if you want to use wireless charging.

Ocase Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet case
We’ve given you a few modern takes on a Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet case, but the folding folio design still dominates the market. Ocase’s option is one of the best around, with a PU leather build and seven colors to choose from. It relies on an internal TPU bumper to keep your device in place, and the magnetic clasp locks the folio over on the front. You can also flip the cover around to double as a kickstand any time you want to catch up on your favorite shows.
Samsung LED wallet
There are plenty of third-party cases to choose from, but Samsung’s first-party wallet case is one of the best. It only offers a single card slot, but the LED cover is the real star here. You can customize select caller ID patterns, and the cover shows you the time without ever having to unlock your phone. Like many of Samsung’s first-party cases, the LED wallet is available in four colors to match the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s design.
TUCCH Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet case
If you weren’t sold on the Ocase folding wallet case, the TUCCH version might be a better fit. It comes in slightly more colors and doesn’t sacrifice any precious storage space. You can add as many as four cards to the built-in slots, and the TUCCH wallet even features a cash pocket on top of it all. Once again, the folio cover locks in place with a magnet, or you can flip it around as a PU leather kickstand.
The Hoomil wallet follows in the footsteps of most other traditional folio cases, right down to the PU leather construction. You can flip the cover around to double as a kickstand, but the Hoomil Galaxy S21 Ultra wallet is only available in black. Really, the only decision you have to make is whether you prefer a magnetic clasp or a snap closure. The case packs two card slots and a cash pocket.
Arae’s wallet may look familiar at first glance, but it kicks your storage options up a notch. It offers four card slots, and the first slot has a plastic window for your ID. You’ll also get a cash pocket for extra storage, and Arae built a small lanyard hole into the folding seam. If you’re not interested in the classic black PU leather version, you can grab the Arae wallet for your Galaxy S21 Ultra in red or rose gold.
One more faux leather wallet for your consideration comes from FYY. While it may look like a few others, the card slots are actually built into an additional layer on the front. You have a pair of slots to tap into, and the front panel closes with a series of snaps to give you some peace of mind. The case itself closes via magnets, which should make it easy to access your phone and your cards independently.
