Samsung is set to launch its next Galaxy M smartphone, the Galaxy M21, in India on 16 March. The highlight of the Galaxy M21 will be its triple rear camera system, which is likely to come with a 48-megapixel main sensor.
The Samsung Galaxy M21 is expected to have a 20-megapixel selfie camera and a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, with a larger 6,000mAh battery.
The device is powered by the octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC and can come in two variants – 4GB RAM + 64GB inbuilt storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage.
The Galaxy M, an online-exclusive smartphone line focused on younger consumers, has helped Samsung gain market share in the growing online channel in India for the first time last year. The Galaxy M21 is likely to retail on Amazon as well as select retail outlets.
This will be the latest in Samsung’s M series. Earlier, on 25 February, the company launched the Galaxy M31 at an initial price of Rs 15999. In fact, for the past few quarters the company has started doing well in the online market.
Its Galaxy M series, particularly the Galaxy M30 12,999 device, performed well in the online segment, helping to revive its online share to a high of 16.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2019.
We are expecting the price of this phone to be lower than the Galaxy M31. If this phone is launched in the Rs. 12000 segment then it will definitely perform well.
