Recent leaks have pointed to a successor for the Galaxy A20s, a phone that may stand out among its new siblings as the only one with a brand-new SoC on its launch. A device with its rumored model number has just appeared again, this time on the Wi-Fi Alliance's database of approved products.

Samsung has only just confirmed the existence of the Galaxy A21 through the medium of its US launch announcement; now, it seems it is preparing a second variant of the same. This phone is currently thought to be called the A21s, based on the fact that there was an Ax0-series device of this name available last year.

This device may have been spotted as the samsung SM-A217F on Geekbench recently. Interestingly, its results thereon show that it runs on a processor called the Exynos 850: a heretofore completely unknown SoC. The A21, on the other hand, has an as-yet undefined chipset, although there is evidence it may be the MediaTek Helio P35 of yesteryear thus far.

As for further leaked spec on the A21's', it seems it has also been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. At any rate, a SM-A217F/DSN from Samsung has been approved to use the a/b/g/n/ac standards, and has been found to run on an up-to-date OS. Therefore, this phone can be expected to run Android 10 out of the box on its launch.
