It is good to know that the Galaxy M21 targeted at the mid-range market with affordable pricing. We don't see that too often with the Korean manufacturer.

The smartphone blessed with a large 6.4-inch Full HD+ screen with Super AMOLED technology that typically reserved on its high-end device. The all-round protection and beautiful looks add a couple more value to it.

Under the hood of the Galaxy M21 is pretty decent with the Exynos 9611 chipset paired with a fast octa-core processor, excellent graphics and either 4GB or 6GB RAM.

This makes for a smooth running of the common apps and games that we normally use daily.

Camera-wise, the Galaxy M21 comes with a 48MP+8MP+5MP camera combination which makes for a great camera experience. On top of that, the 20MP selfie camera makes the package complete.

In terms of storage, the 64GB and 128GB internal storage option is available. Should you need more space, just pop in a microSDXC memory card with ease.

One of the Galaxy M21's strong point is on its huge 6000 mAh battery capacity. This should be able to supply enough juice for it to last for a good two days in between charging. With the Fast battery charging capability, it will take just a few hours to get it back up to speed.

Finally, the latest Android 10.0 operating system is accompanying the Galaxy M21 right out of the box. All the latest features and functions are there for you to take full advantage of it.


Samsung Galaxy M21 is a long-awaited sequel to last year's Galaxy M20 offering. It couldn't come any sooner, as the smartphone boasts a large 6.4-inch Full HD+ screen with Super AMOLED, mid-range hardware, 48MP triple primary camera, 20MP selfie camera, ample storage and a monster 6000 mAh battery. Plus, the price is handsome for everything that it has to offer.

Samsung Galaxy M21 had just released for 13,199 Indian Rupees or ~175 USD for the 64GB storage + 4GB RAM variant and 15,499 Indian Rupees or ~205 USD for the 128GB storage + 6GB RAM variant. Two awesome colors are available: Midnight Blue and Raven Black.
