While it is no secret that Samsung will be releasing an FE version of its Galaxy 21 flagship phone, new renders reveal its design and official colors. Set to be available in four colors, EVLeaks’ Twitter post pretty much confirms that the Galaxy S21 FE will indeed look identical to its vanilla sibling with that unique camera bump.
Judging from the renders, it appears that the Galaxy S21 FE will utilize a matte finish for its polycarbonate back panel. For the display, you are also getting a centrally-placed punch-hole that houses a 32-megapixel selfie snapper. The panel itself will most likely be an AMOLED variety and will measure around 6.5 inches. Like its more expensive siblings, the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to have a 120hz refresh rate.
While not much is known about the Galaxy S21 FE, a Geekbench listing reveals that it will rock a Snapdragon 888 processor that is paired with at least 6GB RAM. For storage, the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be available in 128GB and 256GB variants. The phone is expected to support 5G and will have a 4500mAh battery powering it.
Other rumored specs for the Galaxy S21 FE include a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 12-megapixel main camera with OIS, 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 12-megapixel telephoto camera, 25w wired charging, stereo speakers, IP68 rating, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Interestingly, EVLeaks notes that the Galaxy S21 FE uses stock marketing wallpaper used on the top-end Galaxy S21 Ultra, bringing in the possibility that it might have S-Pen support.
Given that renders of the Galaxy S21 FE have surfaced, Samsung is expected to launch the phone by Q4 2021 together with other phones like the next-generation Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip. The Galaxy Note series will be notably absent this year, and the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to take its place.
