A new smartphone model Samsung Galaxy A21s is rumored to be in the works and could be launched in the US market soon. The phone may be launched in other markets as the Samsung Galaxy A21. If this rumor turns out to be true, then this would be the third device in the Galaxy A series being released as successors in 2020 to the Galaxy A series phones launched by the South Korean major in 2019. In early 2019, Samsung had made its intentions clear that it proposed to launch nine devices, the Samsung Galaxy A10 to A90, and it did release them as well. The Samsung Galaxy A51 and A71 have been released already.
SM-A217F is the Code by Which the Model is Identified
The Samsung Galaxy A21s is currently identified with the code SM-A217F. The report claims that the Samsung Galaxy A21s model is for a specific launch in the United States since it is being developed there.
Some limited specifications are available for the new device. These include the onboard storage variants being 32GB and 64GB. The color options are indicated as Blue, White, Red, and Black. While the details of the camera setup are not known, there is a prediction that the device will have a 2MP macro camera. The observation on this is that Samsung made it a point to include a wide-angle lens in the camera configuration of the smartphone models released through 2019. It may now be expected that the macro camera will be included in all the models this year. This is just an educated guess.
If this Samsung Galaxy A21s is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy A20, then will there be a successor to the Samsung Galaxy A20e as well? There is no confirmation on this.
For the moment though, all attention will be on the Galaxy Unpacked event to be held at San Francisco on February 11, 2020, where the Samsung Galaxy S20 models will be officially unveiled, putting the rumors of the past several months to rest.
