In the past few weeks, Samsung has been going berserk and is launching a new phone every single week. Last week we were talking about the Galaxy A51 and A71 and now this week, we already have news regarding a new update. Samsung has already launched the M21 in India and is preparing to launch the M21 in Nepal within the next week. If I know Samsung well, I’m pretty sure they’ll launch the Galaxy M21 and M31 on the same day.
Pretty much everything about the phone is out in the light. So, let’s overview the device.
Samsung M21 Overview: What’s up With the Love for Exynos 9611?
When considering the form factor, the M21 is a lot like its forerunner, the Galaxy M20. A rectangular box carved into the glastic finish is the go-to design that M21 has adopted. Up front, the phone features a Super AMOLED panel that’s stretched diagonally by 6.4-inches. The phone manages to retain around 84.2% screen-to-body ratio and resolution tops out at 1080 pixels.
Samsung’s attachment with the Exynos 9611 is getting a little weird right now. Just as pretty much every other device that Samsung’s released lately, the M21 too features the Exynos 9611 chipset. The chipset is coupled with either a 4/64GB or 6/128GB that supports UFS 2.1. Up top, the Samsung M21 fancies Android 10 based One UI 2.0.

Samsung M21 Price in Nepal: TBD
Turning the focus of attention to cameras, the M21 houses a triple camera module with 48MP at the core. The primary sensor is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide and 5MP depth. Reverting to the front, you get a 16MP selfie camera, which is okay.
Finally, the piece de’ resistance in the M21 has to be the 6000mAh battery that powers the entire device. With this capacitor, you can easily get 2 days of battery with a single charge. The 15W fast charging is admirable but in front of this behemoth sized battery, it’s basically powerless.
Samsung Galaxy M21 Price in Nepal, Impression
The M21 is already up and available in India for an initial price tag of INR 12,999. Roughly translating, and chipping in a few extra money; we can expect the M21 to be available in Nepal next week for a tagline of Rs 25,000. The price may reach up to Rs 28,000 for the higher variant though.
Talking about the phone itself, I’m neither that excited nor disappointed. Among all the other device launched by Samsung; thus far this is the only phone I am quite satisfied with. Especially, the AMOLED screen, quad camera setup and 6000mAh is something that I’d enjoy bragging about at this price. I’m still in a dilemma about the whole Exynos 9611 chipset though. I’ve been meaning to ask, why does Samsung keep inserting that particular chip in every device?
Well, whatever the reason; it doesn’t matter. For now, I can at least say that buying this phone won’t be worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time will tell if that feeling last though. What are your thoughts; Is it something to consider? Do let us know in the comments down below.
