Samsung has been rumored to have a Galaxy A21s ready for release this year. A new leak confirms this, referring to the phone by its name for the first time. Interestingly, the new device is now associated with 5 slightly different model numbers, suggesting that it will be available in multiple regions.

Today (May 1, 2020), the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has inadvertently confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy A20s will be updated with a new generation soon. This new phone has only been the stuff of rumors until now; however, we may now say it is a Bluetooth 5.0 device, at least.

According to this new certification, the A21s may have up to 5 different variants, each of which may be headed to different markets. One of these (the SM-A217F/DSN) has also been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance's website, although this body did not affirm its product name overtly. The others are SM-A217M, SM-A217M/DS, SM-A217F/DS and SM-A217N.

These model numbers may indicate that the Galaxy A21s is destined for various different markets, which based on the evidence may include the US, India and South Korea. In addition, it is possible that some or all of them may integrate a new Exynos processor called the 850. The Galaxy A21s is also currently thought to improve on the existing A21 with a 48MP main camera sensor, a bigger battery and a slightly larger screen.

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.
