Samsung appears to be paying special attention to its Galaxy A-series of entry-level and mid-range smartphones in this new year. Last month, it officially announced the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 smartphones globally, both of which are confirmed to go live in the Indian market in the next few days. According to a new report from Sammobile, the Korean electronics manufacturer is now working on an entry-level model called Galaxy A21s with dual cameras. Other models reportedly in the works are the Galaxy A41 and possibly the Galaxy A31.

According to the report, the Galaxy A21s is not preceded by a ‘non-s’ Galaxy A21, as has been the case with many Galaxy A-series models in the past. Rather, it’s possible Samsung will market the same phone in the US as the Galaxy A21 and in other markets as the Galaxy A21s. Not much about the Galaxy A21s is known at this point. It is expected to come in two storage variants, namely 32GB and 64GB. It will also come in a number of colour options, namely blue, red, black, and white.

The Samsung Galaxy A21s, whose model number is most likely SM-A217F, is expected to sport a dual camera setup on its back panel even though it’s an entry-level device. Though the report doesn’t shed light on the resolution of the primary sensor, it does confirm the presence of a 2MP macro sensor. A macro sensor (of unknown resolution) is also expected to do duty on the more mysterious Galaxy A41. The information we have on hand so far suggests that Samsung is betting big on macro photography even on entry-level models.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71, which were announced globally last month, are expected to become available on Samsung’s online store in the next few days. The Galaxy A51 features an Exynos 9611 chip with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The slightly larger Galaxy A71 features the same maximum RAM and storage options but gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chip. The Galaxy A51 is expected to be priced at Rs 22,990, while the Galaxy A71 is expected to be priced at Rs 29,990. You can read more about them here.
