The Galaxy S21 would not be equipped with a micro SD port. According to the information of a reputable leaker, Samsung would not integrate the port on the 3 models of the range. It will therefore be impossible to add storage space to your smartphone. In the process, the leak confirms the absence of a mains charger in the box, at least in most countries.
A few weeks before the official presentation of the Galaxy S21 (S30), indiscretions multiply on the web. In a post on Twitter, Roland Quandt, journalist at Winfuture and inexhaustible source of information on smartphones, mentioned the issue of the micro SD port.
As several rumors wanted, Samsung would not integrate no micro SD card drawer to its new smartphones. According to him, the three models of the new generation (S21 standard, S21 + and S21 Ultra) are concerned. You will therefore not be able to increase the storage space of the terminals with a micro SD card. If you regularly record high quality photos or videos, such as 4K or 8K footage, you are encouraged to go for a variant with a lot of storage. This year, Samsung leaves the choice between 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal storage.

No charger in the box in some countries
Still according to Roland Quandt, Samsung is determined not to include a charger in the Galaxy S21 box. However, this decision does not concern not all countries. “However, some markets may still have a charger in the box” slips Roland Quandt. It is not known whether France, or other European countries, will still benefit from the free charger. As for wired headphones, French legislation should force Samsung to slip them into the box.
As a reminder, Samsung will announce the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra this Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 4 p.m. KST. At the Unpacked conference, the Seoul giant should also unveil the Galaxy Buds Pro, new wireless headphones. We’ll tell you more as soon as possible.
