Check out the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G
The image in question (courtesy of Android Headlines) lines up with earlier CAD-based renders of the smartphone. Samsung customers can expect the Galaxy S21 FE to feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display coupled with a punch-hole selfie camera and thin bezels.The South Korean brand has chosen an updated version of the Galaxy S21’s camera module for the more affordable S21 FE model’s rear, with the key difference being that it no longer blends into the aluminum frame.
Samsung’s planning more colorful finishes for the S21 FE
One other major visual difference versus the mainstream Galaxy S21 models can be found in the colors department. The leaked marketing images show off four options: Light Violet, White, Light Green, and Blue. Previously leaked 3D images of the phone also showcased a Gray colorway, but it isn’t pictured in today’s renders.
The Snapdragon 888, a 4,500mAh battery, more
Today’s leak doesn’t reveal anything about Samsung’s plans for the inside of its next budget flagship, but rumor has it that it’ll incorporate the Snapdragon 888 chipset and a minimum of 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
Recent certification listings have revealed the presence of a 4,500mAh battery too, as well as support for 45W fast charging via the included USB-C port on the bottom of the affordable flagship. Last year’s Galaxy S20 FE 5G also supported both wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, so there’s currently no real reason to believe this year’s model won’t include that too.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE announcement, release date, price
Last year’s Galaxy S20 FE was announced in late September and released in the first week of October. Considering the recent reports of a delay, it’s likely the Galaxy S21 FE will follow a similar launch timeline.
The Galaxy S21 FE price is a bit of a mystery at this stage. Reports have pointed to it costing in the range of 700,000 won and 800,000 won (~$630 and $720) in Korea. We also know the Galaxy S20 FE retail at $699 in the US last year.
With that in mind, there’s a very good chance Samsung will target the same price point and offer the Galaxy S21 FE for $699 at launch.
