The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is said to be in the works and production could start sometime in July. This will likely be an upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE launched last year. There were two models introduced in the Fan Edition range – Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. The 5G model was powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC in all markets. Samsung may want to introduce the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE in a similar way.
Well known analyst from DisplaySearch and DSCC Ross Young has tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE can start production in July. He doesn’t offer an exact launch schedule for the phone, but if Samsung followed tradition, it could be revealed sometime in September. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was launched in India in October. The 5G model arrives this March.
Young also leaked color options for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. The phone is available in four color options: gray, light green, light purple and white. Other than that, nothing else has leaked. The phone appears to be a scaled-down version of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, which is likely to come at a more aggressive price point.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE’s renders were recently leaked and have a similar design to the Galaxy S21 series with a few tweaks. The rendering details the design of the upcoming smartphone and the expected handset is said to be quite similar to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 + smartphones. The small change on the back of the Galaxy S21 FE is the camera bump. Compared to the other smartphones in the series, it protrudes from the back instead of the metal frame. It is also expected that the body will consist of a glass-like plastic composite.
The Galaxy S21 FE has a 6.4-inch display with a pinhole camera that is slightly larger than the vanilla Galaxy S21. The FE variant should measure 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9 mm and contain a 4,500 mAh battery.
