Remember the Samsung Galaxy A21s? We last talked about this handset earlier this month when we came across a reference to this handset on popular benchmarking platform Geekbench. Almost a month later, the A21s is back in the news after the handset made its appearance on the website of US regulatory authority FCC. The appearance of the A21s is interesting in that the handset appears to be a successor to the Samsung Galaxy A21 that was only recently announced for the US market. Even after the announcement of the A21, Samsung is yet to divulge key information pertaining to this device – the processor for example. Which is why the appearance of the A21s is quite interesting.

From the documents, it is clear that the Samsung Galaxy A21s gets a 6.4-inch display — which, incidentally, is near-identical to the display on the A21. The phone also has dimensions of 163.7mm x 75.3mm. Also evident from the documents is the support for various network bands including GSM1900, WCDMA1700, WCDMA1900, LTE2, LTE66, LTE41, and GSM850 among others. The phone also supports 5GHz wi-fi networks for faster data throughput. The phone also gets support for 15W fast charging using the supplied charger.

These documents, however, do not reveal the rest of the specifications of the device. We did, however, previously talk about the possibility of the phone featuring a hitherto unheard of Exynos 850 processor. The phone also had a rather unusual 2.5GB of RAM as per our previous leak. A previous report also talked about the possibility of the Samsung Galaxy A21s being offered in two storage variants — one with 32GB storage and the other with 64GB of storage. We still do not have any information about the camera specs of this handset.
