Samsung Galaxy A21s

It definitely looks like Samsung has found itself a golden goose in the A-series range of phones that made its debut in 2019. Clearly Samsung plans to fully capitalize on the popularity of the series by releasing multiple devices as part of the A-series catalog. After revealing the Galaxy A21, which is a follow up to the Galaxy A20, we now have access to the third iteration the Samsung Galaxy A21s. Punch hole displays, quad cameras and AMOLED panels seem to be a staple on Galaxy A series this year as the A21s features all three. The phone has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED panel offering an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. The chipset inside the Galaxy A21s is an Exynos 7 Octa 7885 SoC plus the device packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard memory as well, with the option of adding up to 512GB of expandable storage. The smartphone features a 16MP + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP sensor configuration on the rear camera setup while on the front, you get a 16MP selfie snapper. The icing on this cake is the battery with a capacity of 5000mAh, and you get fast charging support as well. Some of the popular Samsung mobile phones include the Samsung Galaxy A21, Samsung Galaxy A51, and the Samsung Galaxy A30s.
