The Galaxy S21 carrying model number SM-G996U is available on the Geekbench website, revealing some key information. The listing reveals that the smartphone may come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC.

The chipset from Qualcomm is yet to be launched officially. As per various leaks, the upcoming chipset may come with tri-cluster CPU with single X1 high-performance core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores.
