About them Micro SD memory card slots on the Samsung Galaxy S21 series:— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) January 4, 2021
S21 Ultra: YES!
Disclaimer: this is from 2 different sources, but still not from an official spec sheet. I'd give this info a 9/10 confidence rating though.
When, due to their reduced speeds relative to eMMC and the new UFS standards, Google chose to boycott the microSD cards, several companies soon followed. One of the few companies still betting on the microSD standard for their flagships, however, was Samsung. While most mid-range devices still carry a microSD card slot, this is uncommon among flagships.
The Galaxy S20 series is currently being offered by Samsung with a hybrid SIM and microSD card setup. The Galaxy S21 with 128GB is expected to be offered by Samsung as the base variant. With 256GB and 512GB storage options as well as up to 12GB and 16GB of RAM, the latest flagship smartphones can be offered.
These three smartphones will be powered by either the Snapdragon 888 or the Exynos 2100, depending on the region. All three phones will be equipped with lots of RAM and displays with a high refresh rate.
