Samsung has upgraded the Galaxy M21 with the...Galaxy M21. This new version of the 2020 phone has most of the original's features, its massive 6,000mAh battery included. However, it also offers a new rear panel with an updated 48MP primary camera. It will be released to the Indian market on July 26, 2021.

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.

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.
