Both Samsung and the rumor mill seem to be working hard these days on populating the 2019 Galaxy A series with new generations. The latest of these is reportedly the A21. According to new Geekbench listings, it will be powered by a MediaTek SoC and 3GB of RAM.

Samsung's Galaxy A series of 2020 may have an uphill struggle in order to live up to their well-received predecessors. It may include the Galaxy A21, a probably low-tier phone that may be released soon after the A41 and A31. According to a new leak from Geekbench, this theory may hold up well.

This benchmarking website has added several sets of results for a device called the samsung SM-A215U. This seems to track, considering that of the Galaxy A20's SM-A205 model number. Its putative successor is described as having 3GB of RAM and Android 10. 

This OS might be skinned with One UI Core 2.0 in this phone. It may also be powered by the Helio P35 SoC, matching other Geekbench leaks that suggest the A41 at least will also be powered by MediaTek processors. This already appears to be a trend among 2020 Galaxy As; how it works out for them remains to be seen.

There is still no word at present on when or where the A21 will launch. However, we do know that the A31 for one is likely to be released to the US and Indian markets, at least.

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.
