Highlights

  • The handset has been doing the rounds of the Internet for quite some time
  • It was recently spotted on Geekbench with unannounced Exynos 985 chipset and FCC listing

Samsung Galaxy A21, which was launched earlier this month, is likely to be refreshed soon with an all-new Samsung Galaxy A21s. The latter has made a public appearance a couple of times, including Geekbench listing where it was spotted with an unannounced Exynos 985 chipset, 3GB RAM, and Android 10 OS. Now, tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore has spilt the beans on Samsung Galaxy A21s other specifications, including cameras, display, connectivity, colours, and battery. He also said that the information is coming from “relatively new source, so it’s better to take it with a pinch of salt.”

Samsung Galaxy A21s specifications

As per the tipster, the Samsung Galaxy A21s will ship with a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS display with 720 x 1,600p resolution instead of 6.4-inch, as reported previously via FCC listing. The handset may sport 3GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage, which can be further expandable using a microSD card slot. For photography, the A21s is said to be demoted from quad rear cameras on the regular Samsung Galaxy A21 smartphone to triple rear cameras. However, the primary sensor is said to be upgraded to 48MP from 16MP. This will reportedly be paired with an 8MP secondary sensor and 2MP tertiary sensor. The front camera of the phone will allegedly get a 13MP shooter for selfies and video calling.

The entire setup is said to be driven by a whopping 5,000mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, the A21s is tipped to feature FS scanner, micro USB instead of Type-C (bummer!), NFC, dual SIM slots, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Bluetooth 5.0. While it’s not confirmed yet, the Samsung Galaxy A21s will most likely boot One UI 2-based Android 10 out of the box. Lastly, the phone could come in Black, Blue, and White

The aforementioned Samsung Galaxy A21s specs, which the tipster is sceptical about, suggest that it could be the upcoming affordable offering from the brand, replacing Samsung Galaxy A20s, which was launched at a starting price of Rs 11,999 in India last year.
