Samsung India discounts the Galaxy M21 by INR 1,000 across the board

Samsung launched the Galaxy M21 as one of its battery- and camera-centric phones for the Indian market. The OEM has just dropped its 4 and 6GB RAM SKUs by INR 1,000 (~US$14) each in price. This may hint at a stock-clear to make way for a newer device: could it be the M12?

The Galaxy M21 is one of Samsung's 6,000mAh battery phones, and has thus proven popular in a number of markets, India included. It also has a 48MP main camera and a 6.4-inch AMOLED display. Now, it also has a price cut on platforms such as Amazon.in.

It is now INR 1,000 (~US$14) off its normal retail price, which applies to its 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage and 6GB/128GB variants. This might not seem like much, but could also be part of Samsung's plan to nudge it off shelves in favor of an approximate 2021 replacement. This could be the Galaxy F62 - or, possibly, the M12.

The latter is a variation on the previously-released A12 that has been amended with a 6000mAh battery of its own, along with an Exynos 850 SoC rather than the Helio P35 of the original. Then again, both phones have the same 48+5+2+2MP rear cameras.

The M12 was rumored to launch in India recently; however, this failed to transpire, with the device launching first in Vietnam instead. Its release (albeit in A12 form) to the former market is still allegedly on the cards, although it is said to do so in 4GB RAM SKUs with either 64GB and 128GB of internal storage, whereas it has 3 to 6GB RAM options in other markets. They are slated to cost INR 12,999 and 13,999 (as the M21 did at launch) respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
