Samsung Galaxy S21 series is now AER-certified for enterprise use
As smartphones get more powerful, some people have started to use them in replacement of laptops. For Android devices, there are even models that are suitable for enterprise users. In fact, Samsung's latest flagship smartphones now have that certification.
According to XDA Developers, the Galaxy S21 series is now certified by the Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) program. In other words, the devices are suitable for enterprise use. To be certified, a minimum level of hardware specs, along with support for bulk deployment with zero-touch enrollment, and more are required. You can read up on the full list of requirements here.
The latest device on the list is actually the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, no Galaxy S21 series yet
Google confirmed that the Galaxy S21 received the certification at last week's Galaxy Unpacked launch. But if you look through the Android Enterprise Solutions Directory, the most recent device that was certified is the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite. Google may just be slow to update this list though, as the Mi 10T Lite launched last year.
