Samsung’s Galaxy S21 is expected to arrive in January, and the people at Android Police website has some of the leaked specs for the forthcoming phone. The usual cautions about leaked information apply, but most of it lines up with what we would expect.

The standard, Plus and Ultra models are to be expected. According to Android Police, the S21 will have a 6.2-inch display, the Plus will be 6.7 inches and the Ultra will reportedly have a 6.8-inch display.

As always take it with a grain of salt, as these are only leaked information and Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything. These specs can turn out to be true of false or a combination of both.
There is no information about the price so far or exact release date worldwide and in South Africa, but things may change soon.
