After a very long and full of vicissitudes approach, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is now finally ready: here's how it will be
Now we're here: Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is ready. After months of conflicting rumors about the fate of a project that was supposed to debut on the market first in the summer and then in the fall, and that at one point was even canceled, now it seems that everything is really ready for it to arrive on the market.
The characteristic features of the Fan Edition of Samsung are outlined, and the latest rumors give us a "picture" rather accurate of Galaxy S21 FE from which we can draw several information. And it seems that Samsung wants to "apologize" for the wait: had it been released in the summer, Galaxy S21 FE would have arrived with the user interface based on Android 11, and that, with the three updates of the robot guaranteed by the company, would have meant support until Android 14. Instead the smartphone has delayed (quite a lot) and Samsung will provide it with Android 12 so you will also receive Android 15, thus "gaining" a version.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, how it will be
According to the latest rumors, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be powered by two different chips, depending on the markets. As for the previous generation, also for Galaxy S21 FE Samsung has turned to Qualcomm to integrate the production of its Exynos chips, so depending on the sales market it will be offered with Snapdragon 888 chips (the top of the range for 2021) or with Samsung's Exynos 2100 chip, to mean the same that also equips Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Between the two chips the performance is almost similar, so there will be no advantaged and disadvantaged markets: the two "go" the same way. The Galaxy S21 FE's screen will be 6.4 inches with a 2X Dynamic AMOLED panel at 120 Hz, support for HDR10+ and a centrally located hole for the 32 MP selfie camera. It will be a big step forward compared to its predecessor the type of glass: previously was adopted a Gorilla Glass 3 while on Galaxy S21 FE there will be the top of the offer of Corning, namely the recent (and resistant) Gorilla Glass Victus.
According to rumors, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will have 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage space depending on the configuration chosen, unfortunately not expandable. As for the cameras, three sensors will be part of the equipment: a 12-megapixel main wide-angle lens with f/1.8 aperture, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and finally an 8-megapixel telephoto lens for 3x optical zoom with f/2.4 aperture. It will not lack IP68 certification for protection from dust and liquids.
The portrait provided by the rumors on Samsung Galaxy S21 FE includes a 4,500 mAh battery with fast charging: wired at 25 watts, wireless at 15 watts.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, how much will it cost
Initially, rumors had predicted a really high list price for Galaxy S21 FE. Not so much in an absolute sense, but in relation to the fact that several specifications are very similar to Galaxy S21 "standard" whose price, in the meantime, several months after its debut, has dropped quite a bit.
Unfortunately, the most recent rumors have corrected the shot, and we talk about a European price for Galaxy S21 FE of 649 euros for the 128 GB variant and 699 euros for the 256 GB variant. Appointment in January for the debut.
