No doubt, all of the Galaxy S21 models will support 5G. Whether or not there will be a cheaper LTE version will reportedly vary by region, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it gone entirely.
Reportedly, at least the Galaxy S21 Ultra model will support Samsung’s S Pen, seen with the Galaxy Note series, although it will not ship with the phone and the handset will not have a slot to store it in. Instead, reports claim that Samsung will sell optional cases that house both the phone and S Pen, for those power users who want the added functionality of a stylus.
WinFuture, a frequent and reputable leaker, has shared the above purported leaked render of the S21 Ultra within the S Pen-capable case.
These reports come on the back of renewed rumours that Samsung will either trim down or eliminate the increasingly niche Note line, instead folding the functionality into the core Galaxy S line as an optional add-on. Also, Samsung mobile boss TM Roh wrote in a December blog post, “We’ve also been paying attention to people’s favorite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience and are excited to add some of its most well-loved features to other devices in our lineup.”
