Samsung Galaxy A21s launched with 48MP quad rear camera
Samsung is making a killing with its Galaxy A series of budget and mid-range devices. The Galaxy A10 from last year was the top-selling Android smartphone in 2019, with the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A20 taking the next two spots. The Galaxy A51, which was launched towards the end of last year, was the top-selling Android smartphone in Q1 2020 and it was accompanied by the Galaxy A10s and Galaxy A20s in the third and sixth spots, respectively. So it only makes sense for the company to keep refreshing these models with new and improved hardware. And that’s exactly what Samsung is doing. Since this beginning of this year, Samsung has released several new models in the Galaxy A series, including the Galaxy A11, Galaxy A31, and the Galaxy A41. Adding on to the list, the company has now announced the new Samsung Galaxy A21s which was leaked earlier this month.
According to a press release shared by the company, the Galaxy A21s is a budget offering that packs in a 6.5-inch HD+ (720 x 1600) Infinity-O display. Powering the device is an unspecified octa-core SoC clocked at 2.0GHz, coupled with 3GB, 4GB or 6GB RAM and 32/64GB onboard storage.
In the camera department, the Galaxy A21s features a quad-camera setup on the back with a 49MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. Over on the front, the device has a single 13MP selfie camera housed in the hole-punch cutout in the top left corner of the device.
The device has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and it packs in a massive 5,000mAh battery with support 15W fast charging. On the software front, the device runs Samsung’s One UI skin based on Android 10.
