Samsung is set to announce a new smartphone in its mid-range Galaxy A-series called the Galaxy A21s. For the uninitiated, the A-series of smartphones by the South Korean electronics giant happens to be one of the most sold mobile series in the world. Naturally, Samsung tries to update each of its many Galaxy A devices at short regular intervals. The Galaxy A21 was launched in the US last month and now it seems a refresh appears to be on the cards.
