Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra FAQ

Does Samsung S21 Ultra Have SD Card Slot?

No, it doesn’t. There is no space or slot for expandable memory on the Samsung S21 Ultra. This means you have to go for the variant of the phone with big internal storage if you want more storage space. You have the option to choose from 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. An average user might still be able to get away with 128GB of internal storage but creators and artists are better off with the 512GB.

Yes, it does. S21 Ultra was the first Samsung phone in the S series to come with an S Pen or even support one.
