It is important to note that the dates have not yet been officially released by Samsung and therefore the information mentioned by Prosser should be treated as rumors. However, Prosser has a good history of leaks as he correctly predicted iPhone 12 models and other announcements in the past.
Rumors say the Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with curved edges, while the S21 and S21+ are likely to have completely flat screens. The three devices should come equipped with Samsung Exynos 2100 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chips depending on the region.
Still, on the S21 Ultra, rumors say it will come with 12GB of RAM and at least 128GB of storage capacity. Another recent rumor suggests that Samsung will follow in Apple’s footsteps and will not include a charger or headset in the Galaxy S21 smartphone box.
