The leak confirms that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra in two processor variants. In some markets, the phone will be powered by an Exynos 2100 processor, and in others, the Snapdragon 875. The Exynos chipset will be better energy efficient than its predecessors, so battery life should be extended. It is also said to match or even surpass the Snapdragon 875 in performance.
Below are the specs and functions of each model as reported by Android Police:
The standard Galaxy S21 will have a 6.2-inch LTPS display with FHD + resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. There is no information about RAM and storage, but it should vary from market to market.

It will be available in the colors Phantom Violet, Phantom Pink, Phantom Gray and Phantom White. Like the Galaxy Note 20, the Galaxy S21 will have a plastic back cover. Samsung claims the Galaxy Note 20’s plastic case has been better received than expected.
Galaxy S21 Plus
The Galaxy S21 Plus will ship with a large 6.7-inch display, but its resolution is now FHD + instead of QHD +. It also has a 120Hz refresh rate.
The rear camera configuration is also 12MP + 12MP + 64MP and the same software features as the standard variant. The battery capacity has been increased to 4800 mAh. It will also run One UI 3.1 based on Android 11 and will be available in Phantom Silver, Phantom Black and Phantom Violet colors. There is no confirmation as to the material from which the back panel of the Galaxy S21 Plus will be made.
Galaxy S21 Ultra
The Galaxy S21 Ultra is said to have one of the best displays on the market. The 6.8-inch screen features a WQHD + LTPO display with a variable refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz and a maximum brightness of 1600 nits. The contrast ratio has been increased to 3,000,000: 1.

Design and price
The source confirms that the designs of the three phones are in line with what the CAD renders showed. He claims to have seen images of smartphones but is unable to display them to protect his insider source.
In terms of price, the Galaxy S21 series is said to be cheaper than the Galaxy S20 series due to the recession and pandemic to make them more competitive. Unfortunately, there is no specific information on how much each model will cost. There is also no confirmation that the phones will ship with a charger and headphones.
According to rumors, the production of Samsung Galaxy S21 series smartphones has already started.
