The original story follows…

Back in January, SamMobile reported that Samsung is working on a new smartphone, dubbed the Galaxy A21s, and that its model number is SM-A217F. This was the first time we have had heard about the device. Soon, we spotted the SM-A217F on FCC and Geekbench, which, we knew, thanks to SamMobile’s report, is the Galaxy A21s. However, none of these leaks mentioned the Galaxy A21s moniker in them. Well, that changes today.

We have now come across a listing of the Samsung SM-A217F on Bluetooth SIG. And the certification clearly mentions that the marketing name of this smartphone is Samsung Galaxy A21s, thus, confirming the moniker. According to the certification, the Galaxy A21s will have Bluetooth v5.0 connectivity, and that there will be five other model numbers of the smartphone (probably for various configurations and markets).

As far as the other specs go, a well-known leakster, Sudhanshu Ambhore, has revealed key specifications of the Galaxy A21s in the past. According to him, the device will come with a 6.55-inch IPS LCD with HD+ resolution. The rear camera setup is said to have three sensors, 48MP, 8MP, and 5MP. The front camera would be a 13MP unit. He says that the device will be available in 3GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration, and it will have a 5000mAh battery and Bluetooth v5.0.
