Galaxy S21 4G variant appears to be certified in Bluetooth SIG listing

Michail, 20 January 2021

In a rather odd turn of events, Samsung might be bringing a 4G variant of its recently released Galaxy S21 5G after all. All three S21 models introduced last week come with 5G connectivity exclusively (mmWave or sub-6Ghz depending on region) but a new Bluetooth SIG certification suggests we’re in for a regular old 4G model too.

The listing specifies two model numbers (SM-G990F and SM-G990F_DS) which do not match the current SM-G991X model numbers on the S21 5G. These could very well be the 4G variants of the S21 5G meant for markets where 5G infrastructure is still not established. It remains to be seen if and when Samsung will launch 4G variants of its Galaxy S21 series but we will make sure to update you once more info emerges.
