Samsung Galaxy M21 Review: Features, Specifications, Price

The popular South Korean electronics major Samsung has very recently launched the new entrant in its Galaxy M-Series to compete with the likes of Xiaomi in the lower and middle segment. After recently upgrading the M31 phone with the 8 GB variant, it has launched Samsung Galaxy M21 smartphone for the masses, just like Xiaomi did with its Note series. In India, Samsung Galaxy M21 phone is available in two variants – 4GB/ 64GB priced for INR 13,999 and 6GB/ 128GB priced for INR 15,999

The middle and lower segment comprises of the bulk of total market share and that’s why even OnePlus is expected to be launching a phone to cater to the needs of the lower mid-segment population since OnePlus is currently the king of upper mid-segment phones. A successor to the Galaxy M20, the Samsung Galaxy M21 Android mobile phone has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, a waterdrop notch, powerful 6,000mAh battery, Exynos 9611 processor, and triple camera setup.
