Samsung introduced a Fan Edition (FE) smartphone in the Galaxy S20 range late last year. Hence, it has been speculated that the company would launch a Galaxy S21 FE. However, so far there has been no information about the presence of the device. The renders of the Galaxy S21 FE leaked online. These give us a first look at the next Fan Edition model from Samsung.
The latest development is from Steve H. McFly / OnLeaks, who reached out to Voice to release the renders of the upcoming smartphone. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S21 FE appears to follow the design language of the Galaxy S21 range with its camera module that extends to the frame of the phone. Instead of glass, however, Samsung should opt for a glass back panel, which is essentially made of plastic. It has a metal frame and a size of 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9 mm. In particular, the smartphone seems to be larger than the vanilla Galaxy S21 – 4 mm larger.
On the front of the Galaxy S21 FE there is a selfie camera in a hole cutout that Samsung calls the “Infinity-O” display. It’s probably an AMOLED panel. The display is flat at the edges like the Galaxy S21 and S21 +. It is touted as having a 6.4-inch display that is larger than that of the Galaxy S21 (6.2-inch). As for the stern, the FE device is said to have a triple camera setup. However, it is likely that it has downgraded lenses as it will be cheaper too.
With the Galaxy S20 FE, Samsung offered flagship features, but the design has been cut corners, which is not something to worry about if the smartphone is solid. The company seems to be on track to repeat the success mantra with the Galaxy S21 FE by offering flagship features at a lower price. It could start around USD 700.
