The Samsung Galaxy M21 has faced several price fluctuations ever since the device came on the scene mid-March this year. First there was a price drop due to Covid-19 lockdown hampering sales. In June, the company hiked prices, ostensibly due to the impact of GST changes. Now, we hear that there's going to be a permanent price cut.
Reports suggest that prices of both the RAM and storage variants are likely to drop by Rs.500 on the 4GB-64GB variants as well as the 6GB-128GB ones, which means the devices would now cost Rs.13,999 and Rs.15,999 respectively. In addition, there could be a further discount in view of the festival sales that is currently going on at Amazon and Flipkart.
