Yesterday, the Galaxy S21 (SM-G991U) earned the FCC certification. According to the supporting documents, the smartphone will come with the SM8350 chipset, which is the codename for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 processor. Most likely, the Galaxy S21, as well as other models in the series, will use the latest Snapdragon chipset in the US and South Korea, while other countries will get the variants with the Exynos 2100 processor.

According to the FCC certification, the Galaxy S21 will also feature mmWave 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and 9W reverse wireless charging.
