Geekbench 5 Score

The Snapdragon 888 has already appeared on AnTuTu last month under its codename “Lahaina” scoring 847868. In contrast, the Snapdragon 888 powered Galaxy S21 has quite an unimpressive single-core score of 1075 and a multi-core score of 2916, which hints that Samsung is still working on optimizing the chipset for its flagship smartphone.

The debate continues: Snapdragon Vs Exynos

Just like every other previous Galaxy S series, the S21 will is having an Exynos powered variant, mostly Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 2100 will be the one and there are high chances that this time also Samsung will be selling the Exynos powered variant in India.

Three Galaxy S21 models in the pipeline

There’s not much known about the upcoming S21 lineup. Still, we do know that it will be sporting an all-new design and will be having three different models- the vanilla Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus. Galaxy S21 Ultra having codenames O1, P3, and T2, respectively.

Samsung’s ‘S’ Series set to replace its own

Meanwhile, some rumours have suggested that the ‘Ultra’ model of the Galaxy S21 series is expected to come with S-Pen support replacing Samsung’s own Note series in favour of company’s foldable smartphone lineups, the Fold Z and Flip Z.

Samsung is preparing to launch the Galaxy S21 series early this year, most probably in January 2021 as the South Korean giant is still struggling with its current flagship suite and want to make for the poor sales performance of its Galaxy S20 and Note 20 lineup.
