This list reveals some interesting details about the phone that has been listed with the model number SM-G996. The listing reveals that the phone will ship with the unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM and running Android 11. This helps the phone at 1,120 in single-core and 3,319 in multi-core benchmark tests.
Aside from that, the list doesn’t reveal much. However, we know a lot about the device and its siblings from the leaks that have already arrived. According to reports, Samsung will launch two more devices alongside the Galaxy S21 +. These will be called Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Of the three, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will be the most powerful.
