The Galaxy S21 Ultra is said to support the S Pen. However, the stylus will be sold and stored separately. But this means the Ultra model will feature a digitizer layer in its display to facilitate the S Pen inputs.

Another piece of news is the absence of a charger within the S21 box. So, after mocking Apple for its decision, Samsung is apparently following suit. But, we can be sure only when we see the virtual event. Ergo, mark your calendars and set reminders for January 14.
