Earlier reports have suggested the handset will have quad cameras at the back with a 2MP macro lens for close up shots. It remains to be seen when Samsung is planning on launching the Galaxy A21s considering the company yet to announce the vanilla Galaxy A21.

Last month, the vanilla Samsung Galaxy A21 appeared on Geekbench, which suggested that the launch could be soon. But the company is yet to announce the smartphone, possibly due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The listing revealed that the Galaxy A21 will come with specifications such as a MediaTek Helio P35 processor, 3GB RAM and Android 10 software. We expect the Galaxy A21 and Galaxy A21s to look similar in terms of design, which could include a punch-hole display and quad cameras on the back along with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
