Galaxy A21s is one of the mid-range smartphones we’re expecting from Samsung this year and here is its features and price in Nigeria right now.
This phone was announced some days ago [May 15, 2020], and it should be available for sales by June 19, 2020.
But what’s up with the phone, why is it so popular?
Well, A21s is expected to feature an Exynos 850 chipset we’ve never seen.
Samsung has told us the chipset is an octa-core chipset, with all cores having a base clock speed of 2.00 GHz. But what we don’t know is how all these cores would work together.
You should also be aware of the fact that Galaxy A21s is not the only Samsung device we’re expecting very soon, we also expect some other phones like A21.
The A21s is a pretty interesting phone, so why not take the next few minutes to read about the phone in details?

Samsung Galaxy A21s Price in Nigeria
You can get the Galaxy A21s from Samsung in Nigeria at a price of $208 [N81,120: @ N390 / dollar].
The A21s has a pretty cool design.
But while its design is similar to that of the A21, it’s likely people would prefer the design of the Samsung Galaxy A21.
A21s measures 163.6 x 75.3 x 8.9 mm [6.44 x 2.96 x 0.35 inch].
And if you know the size of your current phone, you’d have no problem seeing how large the A21s is.
But when it comes to thickness, the phone is not too thick, neither is it slim.
As regards the mass of the phone, the smart device is a bit heavy, thanks to the case of the phone.
With a mass of 192 grams, users of this phone would feel a significant difference in the mass of the phone and the mass of most other phones in its category.
In this aspect of colour, I sincerely believe most people would be happy with the A21s.
The phone is available in simple colours as well as fancy colours. In other words, if you’re the type who appreciates something simple, you can opt-in for a black or a white build of the phone.
As for people who prefer fancy colours, you can opt-in for either a blue or a build.
As stated above, the computing hardware of A21s is one of the major reasons behind its popularity.
This phone is expected to feature an Exynos 850 chipset, and there’s very little we know about this chipset.
It is stated that the chipset is an octa-core chipset, but what we don’t know, is how the chipset would work. We don’t know if the configuration would be 2-2-4, 1-3-4 or 4-4.
But one thing we’ve been told is that the base clock speed for all cores would be 2.00 GHz.
But regardless of what the configuration of this chipset is, we expect it to be impressive, although not necessarily as mind-blowing as a high-end Exynos chipset.
Moving on to the aspect of RAM, while A21 has only builds having 3 GB of RAM, the A21s comes with builds having 3, 4, or 6 GB of RAM.
So when buying the phone, you’d have to do some thinking about how much RAM you need.
To make it easy for you to determine how much RAM you need, people who use their phones mainly for social media, should opt-in for builds having 3 GB of RAM.
But if you feel you have a lot of money to spend, you can opt-in for a build having 4 GB of RAM.
However, if you’re the kind who loves to play a lot of games, or run many heavy applications simultaneously, then a build having 6 GB of RAM is what would be ideal.
As regards the GPU of the A21s, there currently isn’t any accurate information about what GPU the phone would feature.
But considering the fact that the Exynos 850 chipset has been promised to be a cool chipset, we expect the GPU of the phone to also be quite impressive.
Most mid-range smartphones come with displays between 6.25-inch and 6.75-inch, and this standard is a thing the A21s complies with.
In other words, the aspect of the display is not a thing you have to worry about.
The pixel density of the is about 270 pixel per inch, a value which also complies with the standard of smartphones in its category.
However, one aspect where the A21s beats all other smartphones in its category, is the screen type.
Most smartphones in the category of the A21s come with IPS displays or simple AMOLED displays, but this phone is expected to feature a super AMOLED display.
In other words, not only would the phone’s graphics be amazingly appealing, the phone’s display would also be pretty power-efficient.
Customization of the Android OS is a reason why some people avoid some phones.
And if you’re one of such people, I’d ask you to think twice before tossing aside the A21s aside.
The phone comes with a custom Android OS, but the OS is far from being crappy. In fact, I’ve seen a countless number of people who consider the OS better than the stock Android OS.
This OS is featured by many Samsung smartphones available in the market; in other words, the impressiveness of the OS is not based on mere assumptions.
When trying to buy a build of the A21s, another thing you’d have to decide on, is how much storage you need.
The phone may come with 32 GB of storage or 64 GB of storage. And if you have enough money with you, you should opt-in for a build having 64 GB of storage.
Most smartphones users end up requiring more than 64 GB of storage, so that’s the reason why I’m recommending a 64 GB build.
However, if you don’t have a lot of money on you, you can opt-in for a 32 GB build. Then later in the future, when you need more storage, you can provide yourself with more storage, with the help of a micro SD card.
The A21 and A21s have a lot of things in common. And the aspect of the camera is one of those aspects.
But while the main rear camera of the A21 is a 16 MP camera, the A21s comes with a 48 MP main rear camera.
However, the assisting cameras are all the same.
The A21s, just like A21, comes with three assisting cameras. The first one which is an 8 MP camera helping with the wideness of pictures taken.
One of the other 2 MP cameras helps with depth, while the other 2 MP camera helps with taken macro pictures.
As regards the selfie camera, it’s an enhanced 13 MP camera. And I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t be disappointed with pictures taken by the camera. The camera is claimed to be capable of taking 1,080p videos, at 30 frames per second.
The Galaxy A21s from Samsung mobile is a very cool phone and above are its price in Nigeria and complete specifications.
And when you compare that price to the price of other phones in its category, you would see how the phone is overpriced.
But this shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering the fact that Samsung phones are generally overpriced.
