Samsung Nepal has finally unveiled the successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy M20. It offers an improvement over the M20 in every aspect. The new M21 offers a Super AMOLED display, a big 6000mAh battery, and a 48MP triple camera setup. With the specs bump, the Galaxy M21 has also seen its price hike as compared to the M20. Let’s learn more about the Samsung Galaxy M21 along with its price and availability in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy M21 Overview
After the success that the all-new M-series had in 2019, we expected the company to come with the second edition very early into the new year, however, it hasn’t been the case. Rumors about the upcoming device had hit the internet as early as August last year but Samsung Galaxy M21 has been unveiled in India only in March. With the eventual lockdown, Samsung had to postpone its launch in Nepal. However, the Galaxy M21 is finally here.
Display and Design
The Galaxy M21 comes with a huge upgrade compared to M20 in terms of display technology. The latter came with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ LCD display. Its successor, however, has a Super AMOLED display of 6.4-inch diagonal length. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device boasts screen to body ratio of 91% and a peak brightness of 420 nits. The auto-brightness feature on this device is powered by Samsung’s Virtual Light sensing technology which claims to get the job done using the front camera without the need for any ambient sensor.
As for design, M21 houses a triple camera setup at the back. The camera sensors are arranged inside the rectangular module with the LED flash. Other than that, the device looks similar to Galaxy M20 with the placements of the notch and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Chipset and Hardware
The Samsung Galaxy M21 is powered by the Exynos 9611 chipset. The 10nm FinFET processor is paired with the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. One can choose between 4/64GB and 6/128GB variants. RAM on both these variants is based on LPDDR4x technology. The internal storage can be expanded up to 512GB using the dedicated microSD card.
Compared to last year’s dual-camera setup, the Samsung Galaxy M21 has a triple camera setup. Samsung has not only added a camera sensor but has also bumped the primary lens to a 48MP sensor. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with 123-degree Field of View, and a 5MP depth sensor. To recall, M20 had a 13MP primary sensor accompanied by a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens. On the front, M21 boasts a 20MP selfie camera which is an upgrade to last year’s 8MP camera.
The other highlight of the device will be its 6,000mAh battery which comes with support for 15W fast charging technology. Recently launched M31 came with the same-sized battery size and fast charging support.
The device will ship with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 on top of Android 10. For security, there is a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature. It comes with an accelerometer, gyro sensor, geometric sensor, proximity sensor but misses out on ambient light sensor.
