The S21 and S21+ will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC in the US and have an Exynos 2100 chipset at the helm in Europe. Both smartphones will boot Android 11 with One UI 3.1, have 8GB RAM onboard, and come with two storage options – 128GB and 256GB. But neither of them is likely to come with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The vanilla S21 will feature a 6.2″ FullHD+ Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display, while the Plus model will come with a slightly larger 6.7″ panel of the same resolution. Both screens will be protected by Gorilla Glass Victus and have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz.
