The final announcement. Galaxy A21 - the first Samsung on the Helio P35

About the American Samsung Galaxy A21 (not to be confused withGalaxy A21s) we already wrote. It was introduced in early April. But somehow unconvincingly presented. They said about half the specifications, about half (including the chipset and screen resolution) were modestly silent.

Then Galaxy A21 flashed in the news in mid-May. Like, leaks. The leaks, however, turned out to be inaccurate.

And now the other day, the full characteristics finallyappeared. Quiet, no fanfare. And, you will laugh, but the Galaxy A21 is the first smartphone from Samsung to use the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. Popular budget chip in 2018, we love OPPO, Huawei and other LG. But Samsung had carefully avoided it until this very time. Indeed. One hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. You might think they don't have their own Exynos chipsets for this business. Why put something foreign? But for some reason they put it.

Other characteristics are also about the same level, i.e. very modest.

Screen diagonal 6.5 ″. Clarified previously unknown resolution. It is not high, 720 × 1600 (270 ppi).

Well, about the battery, memory and camera, everything was already known before. No surprises here.

4000 mAh plus 15W fast charging.

3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of permanent memory, there is support for memory cards.

Front camera - 13 MP. The main camera consists of four modules with a total resolution of 28 MP (16 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP - main, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor).

Everything is fine in detail. There is a fingerprint scanner (at the back), there is a gyroscope. Modern USB Type-C.

The only color is black.

Variations are available at the current timeSamsung Galaxy A21 for foreign operators Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile. The current price is the same for all, [[* $ 199.99]. True, it is declared as temporary and discount. Like, then it will be $ 50 more expensive.
