Samsung is likely to launch the Galaxy M21 online as well as offline through select retail stores across the country. As previously noted the Galaxy M series aimed at young customers. The Galaxy M21 is the second Galaxy M smartphone to launch in India after February 25, 2020. Taking look back, the company priced the Samsung Galaxy M31 at just Rs 15,999. This pricing gives us some idea about the price of the Galaxy M21.
Samsung has, in fact, actually started doing well in the online space for the past couple of quarters. Its Galaxy M series, in particular the Galaxy M30s device, performed well in the online segment. This helped Samsung revive its online share in the fourth quarter of 2019.
