Samsung Galaxy M21 launch postponed to March 18th

Samsung was scheduled to announce the Galaxy M21 in India today. However, the South Korean brand has now postponed the launch of the smartphone to March 18th. The company hasn’t revealed the exact reason for the delay, however, we assume it is because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Samsung’s Galaxy M21 landing page on Amazon states that the smartphone will be launched at 12pm on March 18th. The listing also reveals some key specifications of the device.

The Galaxy M21 is confirmed to feature an Infinity-U sAMOLED display. The back panel houses a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor in a rectangular module. There is a physical fingerprint scanner located in the centre. The Galaxy M21 will come with a 20MP selfie snapper on the front. The smartphone is also confirmed to be powered by a massive 6,000mAh battery unit. The Galaxy M21 will arrive as the successor to last year’s Galaxy M20. 

Rumours suggest that the Galaxy M21 will retain the same specs from the Galaxy M30s. Apart from the Amazon listing, hardware details about the Galaxy M21 are unknown at the moment. However, the Geekbench listing revealed that the device will be equipped with Exynos 9611 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM. The smartphone is expected to debut in more RAM and storage configurations. It will be offered in Black, Blue and Green colour options. 

Samsung launched its first smartphone in 2020 M-series dubbed as Galaxy M31 last month. It is priced at Rs 14,999 and Rs 15,999 respectively for 64GB and 128GB storage options. We expect the Galaxy M21 to be priced lesser than the M31.
