Samsung Galaxy S21 Specifications

Samsung Galaxy S21 is coming in three variants, namely S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra.

Galaxy S21 is coming in 100% plastic while S21 plus seems to be glass, but various reports suggest the back material of S21 plus feel like the S20 FE and a bit heavier than S20 FE. S21 Ultra is plastic and glass; what we mean by this is the retail units manufactured coming with a plastic back; however, those devices used for testing are made up of glass material. Samsung is yet to decide whether to go for a plastic back or glass back.

S21 is coming with a base variant of 128GB of storage, and another variant comes in 256GB. There is no 512GB variant. S21 Plus is coming with 128GB and 256GB of storage. Galaxy S21 Ultra is the only one coming in three variants of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. The S21 Ultra Korean model will have a base variant of 256GB instead of 128GB that will be launched everywhere else.

Galaxy 21 colors have also been leaked. S21 will be coming in Silver, White, Pink, and Purple, while S21 Plus is coming in Silver, Black, and Purple. S21 Ultra will be coming in just 2 colors Silver and Black.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will have an expandable storage option, thanks to a hybrid sim tray (SIM + microSD). There would be a single sim option in some regions, and in some, there would be a dual sim option available. Germany will be one such country where there would be a dual sim variant available. Asian countries like India would be having 1 SIM plus SD Card option up for availability. S21 is unlikely to have expandable storage support worldwide. There is no rumor available for S21 Plus models. We are awaiting the news as well.

The S21 lineup will be launching with 8GB RAM, while in Korea, there will be a 12GB RAM variant also available.
