Samsung refreshes the 6,000mAh Galaxy M21 for 2021 with some spec bumps and a new starting price
Samsung has unveiled a new Galaxy M-series variant for the Indian market. It is not the M22, as some might expect, but a refresh of the M21 instead. It looks exactly like its 2020 counterpart from the front, as it has the same 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED U-notched display all over again. However, it does have a quite different look from the back.
It eschews the rather plain polycarbonate shell of yesteryear for new, patterned rear panels in Charcoal Black or Arctic Blue colorways. It incorporates a fingerprint sensor and a triple rear camera hump with a primary sensor that, while still 48MP, is an updated ISOCELL GM2 sensor. It also runs One UI 3.1 Core based on Android 11 out of the box.
Possibly most importantly, the Galaxy M21 2021 Edition retains its sizeable 6,000mAh battery. Samsung is currently teasing it via platforms such as its Indian website and Amazon.in ahead of its July 26, 2021 release. It will start at INR 12,499 (~US$168) for a 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage option or INR14,499 (~$195) for a 6GB/128GB top-end SKU.
