So far, Samsung has launched the Galaxy M11, Galaxy M01, and Galaxy A31 smartphones this month. The Galaxy A21s, then, is the brand’s latest smartphone that sits right below the Galaxy A31 in its A-series smartphone line-up.

The Galaxy A21s features a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display with 720 x 1600 resolution which seems a bit too underwhelming in this segment. Nevertheless, the phone gets Samsung’s Infinity-O display, which means the 13MP selfie camera is neatly placed in a punch-hole cut-out. Speaking of cameras, there’s a quad-camera setup at the rear, which includes a 48MP primary sensor, accompanied by an 8MP wide-angle sensor and two 2MP (depth and macro) sensors.
