Samsung just launched the Galaxy M20’s successor, dubbed Samsung Galaxy M21 in India. The smartphone comes with impressive Samsung Galaxy M31-like specifications. However, it does so while sporting a much more affordable price tag. Moreover, it is being positioned as a product designed for “tech-savvy young millennials and Gen Z.”

Design and Display

Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy M21 looks a lot like the recently launched Samsung Galaxy M31. It has a similar rectangular camera housing and a similar squircle fingerprint sensor on the back.

The smartphone is built around a 6.4-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED Display with Full HD+ (1080p) resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Internals and Storage

As for the innards, the smartphone comes with Exynos 9611 chipset similar to the 2019-launched Samsung Galaxy M30s. The SoC is topped with 4 GB or 6 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of onboard storage. If that is not enough, it also has a dedicated MicroSD card for expansion.

The Galaxy M21 runs on One UI 2.0 based Android 10 OS.

Cameras

The smartphone comes with an exceptional camera for the price bracket it belongs to. At the back, it features a triple sensor camera with 48 MP primary lens, 8 MP ultra-wide sensor with 123 degrees FOV, and 5 MP depth sensor. On the front, it is equipped with a 20 MP shooter for selfies.

Battery and Pricing

The whole package is fueled by a massive 6000 mAh battery that supports 15W of fast charging.

The base model of the smartphone will set users back by $175 and will be available for sale by 23rd March.
