Budget Smartphone selection for 2021 January
Best economic mobile phones for January 2021
Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.
What are the main use of mobile phones?
- Make calls
- Send Messages
- Surf Websites
- Capture your best moments
- Enter into online and offline applications.
To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.
5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB
Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.
Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.
- 6.52 inch HD Display
- 13MP AI Quad Camera
- 6000 mAh battery
Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.
4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB
Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.
Other few features are
- A descent 5020 mAh battery
- 6.53 full HD Display
- AI Quad Camera
3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB
Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.
Key other features include
- 64 GB internal memory
- Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
- 5000 mAh battery
2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB
Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.
Here are some of the other key features
- Expandable memory support upto 512GB
- Qualcomm octa core processor
- 5000 mAh battery
1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB
While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room for us store and capture whatever we wants.
Other Key features are
- 5000 mAh battery
- 6.53 HD display
Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.

Samsung Galaxy S21 (2021) Redefine Concept Introduction
Samsung Galaxy S21, the next flagship series from the South Korean tech major, is expected to launch in January next year, and the phones could go on sale by the end of the month. In the latest leak, tipster Jon Prosser has revealed the launch, sale, and pre-order dates of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 phones on Twitter. The Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra launch will take place on January 14, 2021 and pre-orders will start on the same day. The tipster also claims that the devices will go on sale on January 29.
Samsung’s flagship lineup sees the S series launch in the first half of the year, while the Note series comes in the second half. While some reports are claiming the brand will launch the phones with Samsung Galaxy S30 name label, others are saying Galaxy S21 will be the official name.
Prosser in his tweet also revealed the colour variants of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. These are black, white, grey, silver, violet, and pink. While the features of the devices are yet to be revealed, several leaks have already suggested what could be the possible specifications of the new phones. Here’s everything we know so far.
Samsung Galaxy S21 price (expected)
The Samsung Galaxy S21 price is expected to start from $999, which is around Rs 74,640 in India. The Galaxy S21 Plus could cost $1,199 (around Rs 89,580), whereas the Galaxy S21 Ultra $1,399 (approximately Rs 104,529).
Samsung Galaxy S21 series: Specifications
As per the leaks, the Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30 phones will sport a punch-hole display design. The cutout will be placed on the upper right side of the display. The handsets will also have slim bezels. The design of the phones will be almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.
The leaked renders showed that the volume rockers and power button will be located on the right edge. The standard version is expected to come with a compact 6.2-inch flat display. The screen of the Galaxy S21 Ultra could measure between 6.7 and 6.9 inches. It is expected to come with a slightly curved display and could include support for the S Pen, which would be a first in the S series. However, the device might lack any slot for the brand’s signature stylus.
The phones will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor in some markets. Samsung is expected to announce its own Exynos 1080 processor on November 12. This chip is based on the 5nm process. But this is not going to power the S21 series, according to a report on Sam Mobile. The devices will run the Exynos 2100 chipset, depending on the region.
The most premium version in the series is rumoured to pack a 108-megapixel primary camera and a 40-megapixel snapper for selfies. The Galaxy S21 series could also see the introduction of a new under-display selfie camera. Again, Samsung could limit this new technology to the most premium flagship in the series, which would be the S21 Ultra.
On the software side, the Galaxy S21 will ship with One UI 3.0, which will be based on Android 11. The Samsung Galaxy S21 series was recently spotted on 3C certification. The site hinted that the standard version will offer a 4,000mAh battery, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S21+ is tipped to feature a 4,660mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will reportedly have a 5,000mAh battery. All three phones are expected to ship with a 25W fast charger.
