Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Specifications (Expected)
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was initially expected to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in August this year. But this did not happen. Instead, the company unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Buds 2.
A lot has been revealed about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE so far. According to rumors and leaks, the upcoming mid-range smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which will also power the OnePlus 9RT that is set to launch in China on October 13.
While some reports suggest that the Galaxy S21 FE will pack the Snapdragon 888 SoC, other reports suggest that Samsung may use its in-house Exynos chips due to the lack of a chip. The chipset has not been specifically disclosed.
Other rumors and leaks suggest that the Galaxy S21 FE will come with a 6.4-inch display with support for 120Hz screen refresh rate. Samsung is yet to reveal official information about the smartphone, so take the information with a pinch of salt for the time being.
The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be a premium mid-range smartphone. As per the rumors and leaks, the smartphone will be priced around US$610, which roughly translates to Rs 45,000. There is no report on whether the Samsung device will arrive in India. However, since the Galaxy S20 FE was launched in India, we expect the successor to also make it to the Indian market after the global launch next week.
