On schedule, Samsung has launched the Galaxy A21s in India with a punch-hole design and a 5,000mAh battery. The smartphone which is an upgrade over the Galaxy A21 was first unveiled in Europe last month.
The Galaxy A21s improves over the Galaxy A21 in the areas of rear-camera specs, battery size, and the processor, but switches to IPS LCD panel instead of Super AMOLED panel. The smartphone comes in Black, Blue, and White color options.
The Galaxy A21s is priced at INR16,499 for the 4GB RAM+64GB storage model and INR18,499 for the 6GB RAM+64GB storage model. The smartphone is already on sale starting today via online and offline channels across the country.
The Galaxy A21s is plastic built and comes in gradient back design. The display has a punch-hole camera cutout on the top-right. At the same time, the backside mounts a vertically placed rectangular quad-camera module on the top-left corner along with a physical fingerprint scanner at the center.
The LCD display spans 6.5-inch diagonally and features HD+ (720×1,600) resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio.

On the inside, the smartphone is powered by an in-house octa-core Exynos 850 SoC compared to the Helio P35 SoC found in the Galaxy A21. The SoC pairs with the Mali-G53 GPU, 4GB/6GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 512GB using a microSD card in a dedicated slot.
The quad-rear camera is headlined by a 48MP primary sensor which teams up with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor. A 13MP sensor resides inside the punch-hole cutout for selfies and video chatting.
On the software end, it runs Android 10 with UI 2.0 running on top. A 5,000mAh battery (versus a 4,000mmAh battery inside the Galaxy A21) supplies fuel to the Galaxy A21s helped by a 15W fast charger.
Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS/A-GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. It weighs 192 grams and measures 163.7×75.3×8.9mm in dimension.
