Update: Samsung has since postponed the launch to Wednesday, March 18. The new date was revealed on the Amazon micro-site, and the company confirmed the postponed launch in a statement to Gadgets 360.
The Samsung Galaxy M21 can be expected to be priced around the Galaxy M20 (Review), which was launched in January last year starting at Rs. 10,990. The smartphone will be sold via Amazon INdia as well as the Samsung India website. Unfortunately, as we mentioned, there is no launch event for the Samsung Galaxy M21. But, do stay tuned to Gadgets 360, and we will bring you all the details you need as soon as Samsung announces them.
Thus far, Samsung has teased that the Galaxy M21 will feature a vertically stacked triple rear camera setup, helmed by a 48-megapixel main camera. There is no information on the other two cameras, but one of them is most likely a wide-angle shooter while the other one might be depth sensor.
Samsung has also revealed that the Galaxy M21 will feature a Super AMOLED display, following what appears to be the Infinity-U design language. The waterdrop notch houses a 20-megapixel selfie camera. Notably, the microsite on Amazon and Samsung India's official website also mentions the presence of a huge 6,000mAh battery packed inside the phone. It will reportedly be powered by the octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Galaxy M21 is said to run Android 10 out-of-the-box with One UI 2.0 on top, while colour options on the table will be blue, black, and violet.
