The Galaxy S21 series is nearing its official launch announcement and is getting more interesting information about the devices coming. So far, everything from renders to case designs has leaked.
But while today’s leak is interesting because we’re looking at the Galaxy S21, this time it boasts a Snapdragon 888 with 8 GB RAM. Therefore, you can also see another model with a higher RAM capacity.
Samsung will eventually use the Snapdragon 888 on the Galaxy S21.
This came as a surprise when Qualcomm officially launched snapdragon 888, as Samsung was missing from the list of companies to release smartphones with the latest chipsets. This led many to believe Samsung could stick with a single chip this time around, but that has changed according to the latest Geekbench results. The screenshot below was released by SamMobile.
The name of the chipset here in Lahaina, which is also the code name for snapdragon 888, and the Galaxy S21’s model number is SM-G991U. The list lists that the chipset is an octa-core processor with a base clock of 1.8 GHz and 8 GB of RAM and is running Android 11. The device scored 1,075 in single-core tests and 2,916 in multi-core CPU tests.
Typically, the Galaxy S21 is said to offer a 6.2-inch AMOLED display, FHD+ resolution, 120Hz regeneration rate, and an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint reader. Available in Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 versions. Upcoming phones may come in 8/128GB and 12/256GB models with micro SD card slots for memory expansion.
The Galaxy S21 series will be officially released in January and pre-orders will begin in the same month. Samsung is also announcing the Galaxy Buds Pro at the same event, so for those expecting an upgrade, now is the time to consider it.
