Hardware Specs

Samsung Galaxy M21

The device isn’t listed on Samsung Malaysia’s website just yet but based on the Samsung India’s product page, the M21 features a 6.4″ Super AMOLED Full HD+ display that has a tiny notch at the top. In runs on the same Exynos 9611 processor as the M31 but in Malaysia, we are only getting a single variant with 4GB RAM + 64GB of storage. If you need more storage, you can expand further by adding a microSD card.

For taking pictures, the M21 gets a triple-camera setup for the rear which consists of a 48MP f/2.0 main camera, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle shooter and a 5MP depth sensor. For selfies the device has a 20MP front camera which also supports Live Focus.

The device also gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and it also supports Face Unlock for instant unlocking. Powering the Galaxy M21 is a generous 6,000mAh battery which charges via USB-C and it supports 15W fast charging. Out of the box, it runs on Android 10.

As a comparison, the Galaxy M31 is officially priced at RM1,099 but you can get it for as low as RM888 during the upcoming 7.7 sales on Lazada between 12am to 2am. While it shares a similar screen and battery size as the M21, the M31 has more storage at 128GB and it has a quad-camera setup featuring a 64MP main camera and an extra 5MP macro shooter.
