The troubled Galaxy S21 FE project will eventually make it to the market. It won't do so anytime soon, but it could be made official soon: here are the details
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE yes, Galaxy S21 FE no. On the "will it" or "won't it" fans have been debating for months, spurred by the conflicting information about the launch. The presentation of the Korean Fan Edition was initially never in doubt, given the good sales results of the Galaxy S20 FE last year) and the product seemed set to reach the market without any particular problems and rather quickly.
The situation, however, has changed rapidly close to what should have been the launch, initially scheduled for August, then postponed to September and finally to October, to be then canceled altogether. After a period of relative calm, in recent days the news of the Unpacked event set by Samsung for October 20 has shaken the environment and rumors, which are back to focus on Galaxy S21 FE, a project far too interesting to be canceled. In the end, it became clear that Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be done: the Fan Edition will arrive on the market, that's when.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, when it arrives
Samsung would have wanted to present Galaxy S21 FE later this month. Everything seemed ready for the launch, until some concrete clues made it clear that it would be at least delayed, if not even ended up being cancelled.
For a few days now, however, Samsung seems to have gone back on that choice and seems to have decided not to throw to the wind a project almost ready for the debut. According to the latest rumors, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be proposed to the public, to the "fans", starting from January 11, 2021, and who knows, however, it may not be made official in a few days during the Unpacked event that Samsung has scheduled for next October 20.
Anyhow, there are good chances that it will be launched at particularly interesting figures. For its predecessor, the first Fan Edition, a fairly affordable price has been decided, both by Samsung's standards and by the average market demand for a product of equal characteristics.
However, the delay accumulated by Samsung Galaxy S21 FE should determine a sales price even more attractive than initially expected, to ensure that the market will welcome it worthily and not snub it in favor of competitors that should come out in the meantime. It is the "hard law" of a particularly sparkling market and full of better and better proposals, at an ever lower price.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, what to expect
On the specifications of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE have turned several rumors in recent months, thanks to which we can already draw a picture of how it will be the smartphone "of the fans". The company could propose again the alternation between the best chip of its division, the Exynos 2100, and the best one produced by Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 888.
On board there should be a large 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage space, enough to keep the memories captured with the cameras. Three are expected at the rear, the main 12 MP, a 12 MP ultra wide-angle and a 64 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
Complete the picture is the fingerprint reader under the screen, audio with Dolby Atmos support, IP68 certification against water and dust and a battery that should be 4,500 mAh with fast charging at 25 watts and reverse charging support.
