Samsung Galaxy A21s. European announcement and Russian price

Samsung decided to replenish its youngestsmartphone line and announced the Samsung Galaxy A21s. The device is already officially presented in Germany, the UK and some other countries. From day to day, we are waiting for the announcement and here in Russia. The start of sales is scheduled for June.

Almost everything is known about the A21s. In addition to the most interesting. What kind of iron? As usual, Samsung does not indicate the processor model in the official specifications. Everybody everywhere says that it is an Exynos 850. What is an Exynos 850? No one knows. No specifications. Eight cores. Judging by the news, 183/1074 parrots in Geekbench. Frankly not enough. At least a hundred thousand in AnTuTu will pick up? We are waiting for the first reviews and reviews and hope for the best.

With other characteristics, everything is much clearer. The screen is large (6.5 ″), with a fashionable round hole for the front camera. The resolution here, however, let us down. Modest HD + (720 × 1600, i.e. just 270 ppi). Screen matrix not specified. Obviously something IPS-like.

The battery is excellent, as much as 5000 mAh. Yes, and with fast (albeit not the fastest) charging 15W.

Memory. 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of flash memory. There is support for memory cards whether the hybrid tray is unknown.

Cameras. I suspect that everything should be more or less good with cameras. Because if not, then the point in buying A21s will be approximately zero. The front camera is 13 MP in front, and the rear camera is 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP (main, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor).

On the little things. USB is modern, i.e. Type-C. Otherwise, everything seems to be boring. NFC has never been mentioned anywhere, i.e. most likely not. As there is no gyro and dual-band Wi-Fi. Although I won’t give a tooth. There are no complete official specifications. And in unofficial mistakes and typos are more common than you and I would like.

Prices. In Russia - ₽15,990 ($ 218) for the younger model 3 + 32 GB and, it seems, only a thousand more for 4 + 64 GB. For comparison, in Germany they want € 209 (₽16500, $ 226) for the younger version, and in England - £ 179 (₽16000, $ 219).
