Samsung’s budget Galaxy A21s leaks with quad rear cameras, hole-punch display, and the new Exynos 850
Last month Samsung announced the budget-friendly Galaxy A21 in the US market alongside four new Galaxy A series of smartphones. Although the device has yet to officially go on sale in the US, it turns out Samsung is already working on a new variant. According to WinFuture, Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy A21s, an upgraded version of the Galaxy A21.
The Samsung Galaxy A21s will bring some much-needed upgrades in the areas of camera, SoC, and battery. WinFuture has also managed to obtain the renders of the Galaxy A21s which gives us a detailed look at the overall design of this upcoming budget smartphone. As you can see in the images attached below, the front of this device looks exactly the same as the A21, packing a hole-punch display and a spacious bottom chin. The resemblance starts to fade when we move to the back though. Where the Galaxy A21 arranged cameras in a vertical strip, the upcoming phone opts for the L-shaped camera setup that has become a norm on Samsung phones as of late.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy A21s is expected to feature a 6.5-inch PLS TFT HD+ display with a resolution of 1600 x 720. On the inside, the phone will be powered by an unreleased Exynos 850 octa-core chipset.
Coming to the cameras, the quad-camera setup will have a 48MP f/2.0 primary camera — a step up from 16MP of Galaxy A21 — an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor. It will continue to use the same 13MP front camera, but thanks to the new chipset, it will allow shooting 1080p videos, the report notes.
The phone will pack a hefty 5,000 mAh battery, compared to the 4,000 mAh unit on the predecessor, that will charge via a USB-C port. Moreover, the device is expected to feature a headphone jack, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.0. Finally, the phone will run Android 10 based on an unspecified version of One UI.
As for pricing and availability, the Galaxy A21s will be offered in black, white, and blue and is expected to go on sale by the end of May at a probable price of around €199 or €209. Details regarding the international availability remain unknown as of now.
