Samsung announces the Galaxy A21s, a cheap Galaxy S20 alternative.

Just about two days after the full details of the Samsung Galaxy A21s was leaked, Samsung announced the phone. The details provided by the company are more or less precisely what got leaked.

As previously leaked by Roland Quandt for a German tech website, the phone is to come with a 6.5-inch 720 x 1600 pixels screen, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of in-built storage and a 5,000mAh battery. Roland further added that there is a high tendency for Samsung to produce a 64GB model and an Exynos 850 chipset variant of the Galaxy A21s.

Samsung has now confirmed that the new device will feature a 6.5-inch 720 x 1600 pixels display, 3GB of RAM, an octa-core chipset, 32GB of storage, 13MP front-facing camera, and a quad-camera setup made up of a 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensors.

The chipset on this device is said to be a new one with a maximum clock speed of 2GHz. The name of this chipset is yet to be confirmed, but we do know its octa-core. The Galaxy A21s will run on the Android 10 OS and will support microSD card slot for storage expansion.

Looking at the build of the phone, from the official renders, the Galaxy A21s has slim bezels and an all-screen look with a punch-hole camera at the top left corner of the display. The quad-camera on the backside of the phone is housed in a large block with the fingerprint scanner just a few inches from it.

The Samsung Galaxy A21s will hit the UK retail stores on June 19 in white, black and blue. The phone will cost £179 (~$220/AU$340).
