Samsung launches the same devices with different hardware capabilities for several smartphone markets. For example, the US variants of Samsung smartphones equip Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset while the company ships the same models with its own Exynos processor.
Adding to this, mmWave functionality is another difference in Galaxy devices. In the US, Samsung offers flagship devices with mmWave. Meanwhile, the other region’s units don’t come with this functionality which affects the pricing strategy of the company.
According to a reliable source, just like the previous Galaxy Note 20 series, the US variants of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series will also come with reduced storage at the same price between global and US units because of the implementation of mmWave.
Last year, the Galaxy Note 20 series with Snapdragon 865+ launched at the same price. Meanwhile the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra started with 12/256GB as a base variant while the US variants start with 12/128GB. Samsung made these storage differences to make up the pricing of the phones with/without mmWave.
