If you’re after a new Samsung handset but can’t stomach the price of the Galaxy S20 then the brand may soon have a new option for you, as a big leak has revealed the Samsung Galaxy A21s in full – a phone with a big battery and some similarities to the Galaxy S20 but with a much lower price.
Roland Quandt (a reputable leaker) acquired full specs and loads of Galaxy A21 renders for Winfuture.de (a German tech website), revealing that the Galaxy A21s will apparently have a 6.5-inch 720 x 1600 screen, 5,000mAh battery, 3 GB RAM, with 32 GB or 64 GB storage, and Exynos 850 chipset. That’s a new, apparently octa-core chipset, with a maximum clock speed of 2GHz.
Additionally, it is said that the Samsung Galaxy A21s has a quad-lens rear camera with a 48MP f/2.0 main sensor and an ultra-wide 8MP, along with two other as-yet-unknown lenses. Apparently there is a 13MP camera on the front, with the Galaxy A21s also claiming to have a microSD card slot, NFC, Android 10, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
You can see from the renders that the phone looks all-screen, with a punch-hole camera in the top left corner and a slim bezel beneath the display.
Meanwhile, the back houses a large block of the quad-lens camera, and there is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear. The Samsung Galaxy A21s are said to be made of 8.9 mm thick plastic and weigh 191 g.
As for the all-important price, it is said to start at about €199 (about $215/ £175/AU$335). Apparently the phone will land towards the end of May, although it is not yet clear which regions will be getting the handset. But if yours is one of them it could be a compelling cheap telephone.
As always with rumors, we ‘d take all this with a bit of caution, but it’s aligned with another recent leak from the Samsung Galaxy A21s so there’s a good chance this phone is real and about to launch.
