The launch of the Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime Edition in India may be imminent. Although Samsung has not yet released any official details about the device, the Galaxy M21 Prime Edition has appeared on the Samsung India website. The smartphone was also recently certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and was included on the list of devices supported by Google Play. The Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime Edition is expected to hit the market with specifications pretty similar to the Galaxy M21, which launched last March.
As originally reported by MySmartPrice, the Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime Edition has appeared on a dedicated support page on the Samsung India website. The website does not list the smartphone name, but the model number SM-M215G / DS that appears on the Samsung website is the same as that on the updated list of supported devices from Google Play along with the title Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime listed is edition. Last year’s Galaxy M21 was model number SM-M215F / DS.
In addition to the two listings, the Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime Edition also received BIS certification on May 24, as suggested by a listing on the regulatory authority’s website.
Last year, Samsung partnered with Amazon India to bring the Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime Edition to market. This model had the same specifications as the original Galaxy M31. However, it did come with pre-installed Amazon apps and came with a free three-month Amazon Prime subscription.
Samsung is likely to follow the same pattern this year, potentially launching the Galaxy M21 Prime Edition in partnership with Amazon. The new phone is expected to hit the online marketplace at some point during a new sales event to attract more consumers.
The original Samsung Galaxy M21 was launched last year and is currently priced at Rs. 12,499 for the configuration with 4GB of RAM + 64GB of storage.
Samsung Galaxy M21 Prime Edition specifications (expected)
The most important specifications of the Samsung Galaxy M21 include a 6.4-inch Full HD + display (1,080 x 2,340 pixels), an octa-core SoC Exynos 9611 and a 6,000 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy M21 has a triple rear camera with a 48 megapixel primary sensor. It comes with a 20-megapixel selfie camera sensor on the front and has up to 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of onboard storage. All of these details should also be more or less part of the Galaxy M21 Prime Edition.
