Galaxy S21 FE: Here’s an early look at Samsung’s new affordable flagship for 2021

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is an interesting device which offered flagship specs and features at a lower price. Now, it appears that Samsung is about to release its new “Fan Edition” for the Galaxy S21 series. Here’s what it would look like thanks to high resolution renders from reliable leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @onleaks.

As you would expect, the Galaxy S21 FE looks identical to the current Galaxy S21 and S21+. It features a triple-camera setup on the rear that’s aligned vertically, while the front gets a flat display with a centre-aligned punch-hole.

According to Steve, the Galaxy S21 FE will also come with a frosted “Glastic” rear panel which is basically plastic that “looks like glass”. The screen is said to be 6.4″, which is slightly smaller than the S20 FE (6.5″) but it’s bigger than the S21 which comes with a 6.2″ display.

So far there are no details yet about the internal specs and hopefully, it would run on a Snapdragon 888 processor. When the current Galaxy S20 FE was announced in Malaysia, the 5G version with a Snapdragon 865 chip and 256GB storage was going for RM3,399. A month later, Samsung introduced the LTE version with an Exynos 990 chip and 128GB of storage for RM2,699.

If Samsung continues the same formula, we can also expect the S21 FE to come with a 120Hz AMOLED display, stereo speakers, IP68 dust and water resistance plus support for Samsung’s ecosystem including Samsung Pay. It isn’t clear if Samsung will include a power adapter for the upcoming Galaxy S21 FE.
