Although it was speculated earlier that it will be cancelled, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is now official, adding to the craze of the Samsung Galaxy S21 model.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 FE has removed some of the more expensive parts of the regular S21, while retaining some key flagship specifications and features.For example, it uses Qualcomm’s 5nm-based Snapdragon 888 chipset, which is the same processor found in Samsung’s best Android phones last year, especially phones sold in the US
This phone is equipped with a 6.4-inch FullHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which provides ultra-smooth animation and gaming experience. This is slightly smaller than the display of its predecessor, so it makes sense that this phone is more compact than the 74.5 x 155.7 x 7.9 mm S20 FE. The S21 FE is also lighter than the previous FE model, weighing 177 grams and 190 grams, respectively.
It is equipped with a 4,500mAh battery and supports 25W fast wired charging and 15W wireless charging. With this feature, Samsung claims that you can charge your phone by more than 50% in just 30 minutes.
On the back, the Galaxy S21 FE includes a three-camera setup, including a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12MP wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. The front camera is a 32MP camera. Of course, the camera bump is modeled after the Galaxy S21 design and integrated into the right frame of the phone.
As an economical phone, Galaxy S21 FE naturally has a plastic back and metal side rails with a matte finish. Samsung will provide devices in four colors: olive, lavender, white and graphite. It will come with One UI 4 (Android 12) out of the box.
It will be on sale on January 11 at the same price as the Galaxy S20 FE: $699. The basic model has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space, but it is also available in 8GB/256GB configurations.
