Samsung Galaxy A21s Has Been Spotted on Geekbench

South Korean technology giant Samsung has been working hard on a lot of entry-level handsets these days. Over the past few months, the company has given us the launch of several budget and mid-range devices across the globe. Some of the handsets introduced by Samsung in the three months since 2020 began include the Galaxy A71, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A41, Galaxy A31, Galaxy M21, and the Galaxy M31, among others.

And now, it has come to our notice that Samsung is also working on a new A-Series device called the Samsung Galaxy A21. As evident from its naming scheme, this handset will be positioned below the Galaxy A31, which was recently unveiled by the company in select few markets across the world.

What is even more remarkable is the fact that there is already news of another “in-development” phone called the Samsung Galaxy A21s — which seems to be a successor to the yet-unreleased Samsung Galaxy A21.

People at Sammobile had already reported about this new A21s with the model number SM-A217F a few months ago, but since that report back in January 2020, it has been complete radio silence as far as the Galaxy A21s is concerned. However, now it has been spotted on a fresh Geekbench listing, which at least initially seems to be of this rumoured device.

The listing as of now seems sketchy since it has a reference to a Samsung Exynos 850 processor, which does not exist as of now. The phone also seems to have an unusual amount of RAM (2584 MB), which is around 2.5GB. What it does get right is the model number SM-A217F which per the Sammobile report, is indeed that of the Samsung Galaxy A21s. Another thing that the Geekbench listing reveals is that the handset runs Android 10.

Previously leaked information about the Samsung Galaxy A21s indicated that it would only be made available in select markets across the world. Sammobile also reported that the A21s might not be a true successor to the Galaxy A21 and that it could be a slightly different variant of the standard A21 designed for a different market. The report had also indicated that the SM-A217F could be offered in two storage options (32GB and 64GB) and that it will also feature a 2MP macro camera.
