Samsung Galaxy S21 visits FCC, launch imminent

As seen in the FCC certification screenshots, the Samsung Galaxy S21 (with the model number SM-G991U) has recently been certified. Until now, the FCC certification does not contain much information about the device, save for the fact that it will feature 25W wired fast charging and 9W wireless charging.

If you are unaware, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is otherwise tipped to skip a charger inside the retail box, so this charger (EP-TA800) could likely be the one Samsung might officially recommend to use with the Samsung Galaxy S21. The FCC certification also reveals the various frequency bands the Samsung Galaxy S21 will operate within.

Other than what we mentioned in the above paragraph, the FCC certification does not tell us anything else about the Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone so far. That said, there have been several leaks in the past that showcase the looks and specifications of the entire Samsung Galaxy S21 series.
