Samsung Galaxy M21 gets certified by Bluetooth SIG ahead of launch

Various reports in the past have suggested that Samsung is working on the successor to the Galaxy M20, which was one of the best-selling smartphones on Amazon India last year. Called the Galaxy M21, the upcoming phone was recently spotted in the database of the benchmarking app Geekbench. The colour variants of the Galaxy M21 were leaked on the interwebs recently. Now, the phone has been certified by Bluetooth SIG, which suggests that the handset could be launched in the near future. Just like the Galaxy M20, the Galaxy M21 is also expected to be a pocket-friendly offering.

Samsung Galaxy M21 specifications and features

The Galaxy M21’s Bluetooth certifications suggest that the handset will feature Bluetooth 5.0. Unfortunately, no other details about the specifications of the device have been revealed by the Bluetooth SIG listing. However, the listing of the phone on Geekbench earlier suggested that the phone will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9611 octa-core processor, which will have a clock speed of 1.74GHz. One of the variants of the handset will offer 4GB of RAM. Software-wise, the smartphone will boot Android 10 out of the box. The rumour mill indicates that the device will have a 24MP primary camera on the back, which will be paired with a 5MP secondary snapper. The handset is said to be available in three colour variants – Black, Blue and Green.

Apart from the Samsung Galaxy M21, the company is also working on another M series offering called the Galaxy M31. While the brand hasn’t announced anything about the device, some YouTubers like Geeky Ranjit and Technical Guruji have released a few teasers about the phone. The teasers suggest that the handset will come with a 64MP primary camera sensor on the back and a beefy battery, possibly a 6,000mAh unit like its predecessor. The other rumoured specs include the Exynos 9611 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Android 10.

Samsung is rumoured to introduce the new Galaxy M series smartphones at some point later this month. We can expect some official details about these devices in the near future.
