Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series just hit retires a couple of months prior, yet there are plenty of rumours circling about the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition or Galaxy S21 FE. The Galaxy S21 FE will succeed the fantastic Galaxy S20 FE if it arrives, probably hitting the sweet spot among cost and features indeed. Here is all that we have heard up until this point.
Release Date and Price
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE model was uncovered in September 2020 and made available in October 2020. It’s been asserted there is a Samsung device with a model number SM-G990B underway that is probably going to be the Galaxy S21 FE and that it would dispatch in the second half of 2021.
With the Galaxy S21 series dispatching sooner than the Galaxy S20 arrangement, it is possible that the Galaxy S21 FE also arrives a little earlier than its predecessor. However, a released mini Samsung roadmap recommends that 19 August has been pencilled in for the S21 FE launch, which would uphold the idea, and possibly fill the August launch gap if the Note 21 doesn’t seem this year.
It has likewise been asserted the device has been delayed and won’t release until Q4 of 2021, which would return it to fix with the timeline of its predecessor.
As far as cost, we’d expect the Galaxy S21 FE to sit beneath the Galaxy S21. The Galaxy S20 FE begins at £599 in the UK for the 4G model – it isn’t available in the US – with the 5G model costing £599 in the UK and $599 in the US, so that we would expect a similar ballpark for the Galaxy S21 FE.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE featured a design similar to the Galaxy S20 series but made a couple of changes to reduce the price, like a plastic rear instead of glass. The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to do the same but with a design similar to the Galaxy S21 and S21+. Rumours claim it will come in grey, pink, violet, green, blue and white colours. It’s likely to be water-resistant, as the Galaxy S20 FE was, and we’d expect a flat display.
Based on multiple leaked renders, the camera housing on the rear of the S21 FE will fall into the frame, as it does on the Galaxy S21, but it will be an overall more traditional and more straightforward design. The housing also appears to be the same colour as the rest of the rear rather than a different colour like the Galaxy S21.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a 6.5-inch display with a Full HD+ goal. However, reports guarantee the Galaxy S21 FE will have a 6.4-inch screen. However, that places it in the middle of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ as far as size.
Both the S21 and S21+ have a Full HD+ display too, and both accompany a variable 120Hz refresh rate. As the Galaxy S20 FE held the 120Hz refresh rate of the Galaxy S20 series, the S21 FE will likely offer a quicker refresh rate. However, it’s indistinct if it will show a variable refresh rate.
A flat display is also likely for the Galaxy S21 FE, alongside a concentrated punch-hole front camera. It’s also expected to be a Super AMOLED board.
Hardware and Specs
Rumours suggest the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will come in 128GB and 256GB storage choices, similar to its predecessor. It isn’t clear if it will offer microSD support for storage development. However, the Galaxy S21 and S21+ don’t, so it’s conceivable the S21 FE will not by the same token.
Reports guarantee it will be a 5G device, which we’d expect. However, it isn’t clear if there will be a 4G LTE model, too, as there is with the Galaxy S20 FE. It is also said to run on Android 11.
A spilt benchmark recommends the Galaxy S21 FE will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, similar to the Galaxy S21 series. The standard also suggested we would see 6GB of RAM – somewhat less than the Galaxy S21 – yet there has additionally been a benchmark indicating 8GB RAM.
The battery capacity hasn’t been referenced yet. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to consider to be battery limit as the Galaxy S21+. Another apparent common component with the normal S21+ is the support for 25W quick charging. Though, it’s anything but yet specific whether the actual charger will be remembered for the case.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE highlighted a triple rear camera with a similar primary camera as the Galaxy S21+. However, it dropped the resolution of the telephoto camera and increased the resolution of the front camera. It additionally has a similar resolution ultra-wide camera as the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+, but with smaller pixels.
Right now, there are no particular reports in regards to the Galaxy S21 FE camera specs, yet renders show a triple rear camera like the Galaxy S21 and S21+, which is expected.
