Some preliminary reports had proposed that all 3 Galaxy S21 models would develop with an Exynos SoC.

Samsung may continue with its beginning the Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S21 range in the US, while global sales are expected to get the Exynos variant.
The FCC certification also highlights mm-Wave 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.0, and NFC connectivity on the Samsung mobile. Further, it suggests a battery pack EB-BG991ABY that was newly surfaced on China’s 3C certification site with 4,000mAh.
