On: April 8, 2020

Samsung has announced a range of new smartphones for the US market, including the long-rumoured Galaxy A51 5G and Galaxy A71 5G. Another new smartphone in the brand’s mid-range 2020 lineup is the Samsung Galaxy A21. The smartphone has been subject to a few leaks and rumours in the past, and brings key features like a punch-hole display, large battery and quad cameras at an affordable price. The device also shares some features with the cheaper Samsung Galaxy A11, which was recently listed on Samsung’s website.

Samsung Galaxy A21 specifications and features

The Samsung Galaxy A21 is a new mid-range phone

The Samsung Galaxy A21 sports a large 6.5-inch display, however the resolution is pretty standard at HD+. The Infinity-O punch-hole means that the selfie camera is positioned at top-centre of the screen. There are relatively thin bezels on the sides, but thicker ones at the top and bottom, despite the punch-hole camera design. The back panel is home to a vertical quad-camera setup, consisting of a 16MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is a 13MP unit. Samsung hasn’t specified the processor on board, but a previous Geekbench listing hinted at a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. The smartphone gets 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, expandable up to 512GB via microSD. The battery on board is a large 4,000mAh unit, and it comes with 15W fast charging which is a plus. For security, there’s a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear panel.

Samsung Galaxy A21 pricing and availability

The Samsung Galaxy A21 is priced at $249.99 (~Rs 19,000), and will go on sale in the US this summer. An India launch date is unknown at the moment, but we can expect it to land here in the next few months.
