Samsung subtly added new smartphones in its entry-level and midrange line-up.

Launched alongside the 5G versions of the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71, the Samsung Galaxy A21 is one of the cheapest midrange phones that the company offers.


In typical Samsung fashion, the company didn’t bother to go in detail about the device’s specs. For one, they didn’t reveal any information about the processor that it comes with.

Albeit, we expect it to inherit the chipset of its older brothers. Possibly the aging Exynos 9610 of the Galaxy A50.

Still, it feels like a great step up over the Galaxy A20s. For one, there are now four cameras on the back. It consists of a 16-megapixel main shooter, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel depth sensor.

On the front, there’s a 6.5-inch HD+ screen, possibly an IPS panel. There’s a punch-hole on the top left — a cleaner way to place its 13-megapixel selfie camera.


Along with all that is a decent 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support.

The Samsung Galaxy A21 has a price of USD249.99 (~Php12,600) and will be available in the US this summer. Meanwhile, its release details and pricing here in the Philippines is yet to be announced. But, we do expect it to be in the sub-Php10k price range, just like the Galaxy A20s.
