The Samsung Galaxy A21s has arrived as an update to the Galaxy A21 unveiled last month. The A21s features a similar design but several upgrades to the specifications such as a bigger battery, more RAM options, and a better camera setup for no more than €200.

Design and Display

Samsung Galaxy A21s Comes With a 5,000 mAh Battery & AMOLED Display for Cheap

There are no differences in terms of display specifications or looks. The handset is built around a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with HD+ resolution and a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. There is a punch-hole cutout for the front-facing camera in the top left corner.

The back has an L shaped quad-camera set up in a rectangular module instead of a simple vertical layout. Despite having an AMOLED display, the device features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor just like the previous model.

Internals and Specifications

It has the same entry-level Exynos 850 SoC with an octa-core processor, but there are now options to go up to 64GB storage with 6GB RAM. Samsung has also included the option to expand internal storage through a microSD card slot.

The device will boot One UI 2.0 on top of Android 10 fresh out of the box. There is no word on OS upgradability yet.


The 16MP main sensor from the Galaxy A21 has been swapped out for a 48MP wide-angle shooter. The main camera is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and an additional 2MP sensor for portrait shots. The main camera can capture HDR photos, panoramas, and 1080p videos at 30 FPS.

The 13MP selfie camera can also record 1080p videos.

Battery and Pricing

There is a massive 5,000 battery inside the A21s that should easily last more than 2 days on moderate use. There is also 15W fast charging for quick top-ups.

The Galaxy A21s will go on sale next month for €200 and will be available in Red, Blue, White, and Black color options.
