O Samsung Galaxy S21 FE may be one of the next releases of Samsung. The phone tends to be heralded as the most affordable member of the Galaxy S21 family, just as it was its predecessor Galaxy S20 FE, in August or even October. The rest of the bets focus on the presence of an advanced technical sheet, triple camera, big battery and more. Check out what to expect from the new phone from the South Korean brand.
Galaxy S21 face, only bigger
The cell phone tends to keep the same look as the Galaxy S21. This includes everything from the plastic housing to the photo module, with the sensors positioned in a vertical row. But the base would have a slight difference as it tends to be integrated into the back rather than the edges.
A flat screen with thin edges and a hole for the front camera is another long-awaited feature, as is the Full HD+ resolution. The display should be 6.4 inches, farther than the Galaxy S21’s 6.2-inch panel. The FE variant’s display, on the other hand, would be smaller than the Galaxy S21+’s 6.7-inch display.
Regarding the measurements, it is expected a height of 155.7 mm, width of 74.5 mm and thickness of 7.9 mm, which can reach 9.3 mm if you take the camera relief into account. The phone can still be IP68 certified. So far, four color options have been revealed in leaks: white, black, purple and green.
Galaxy S21 FE must have triple camera
The triple photo set from the previous generation should remain. In this case, the 12 megapixel main camera would keep its presence accompanied by another component that would have the same resolution, but with an ultrawide lens. The third sensor can be 8 megapixels with a telephoto lens.
A 32 megapixel front camera is also expected. As mentioned earlier, the sensor for selfies and video calls would be placed in a hole on the screen, positioned in the center.
Advanced datasheet with 4,500 mAh battery
The Galaxy S21 FE is quoted to bring advanced technical sheet, possibly with the same processor as the other models in the line. This means that, in Brazil, the smartphone should reach stores with the Exynos 2100. In other countries, such as China and the United States, the phone is expected to be marketed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
Another bet focuses on 8 GB RAM, according to the certification of the Chinese agency TENAA. But the phone can also be sold with less memory, as with the Galaxy S20 FE. The battery would be 4,500 mAh with support for charging up to 45 watts.
The smartphone can also have 128GB or 256GB storage to store apps, photos, videos and other types of files. The good news is that Samsung should keep the microSD slot. The other members of the Samsung Galaxy S21 family, it is worth remembering, do not support memory cards.
Factory Android 11 and more
The release is expected to come out of the box with Android 11 out of the box. Like other branded products, the cell phone would come with the One UI interface. Other awaited features would be left by the fingerprint reader under the screen and the stereo sound.
5G support is also expected to be present in the next Samsung Galaxy phone. The possible specification list is complete with Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and GPS connectivity. The smartphone can even have a USB-C port.
Galaxy S21 FE release date
Samsung has scheduled an event for August 11, 2021. The South Korean brand is expected to present the Galaxy S21 FE during the Galaxy Unpacked conference, alongside the expected Galaxy Watch 4 with Wear OS and new folding phones. But there are those who are also betting on a September or October release.
Galaxy S21 FE price
The smartphone is expected to be marketed at a more affordable price than the Galaxy S21. By comparison, the Galaxy S20 arrived in Brazil for R$ 5,499. The Galaxy S20 FE, in turn, had a suggested price from R$ 4,999. Compare the values for each release in Brazil and the United States below:
|Price in Brazil||Price in USA||US price (converted)*|
|Galaxy S20||BRL 5,499||$999||BRL 5,200|
|Galaxy S20+||BRL 5,999||from $1,199||from BRL 6,240|
