The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is said to be in the works and production could start in July. This will likely be an upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE launched last year. Two models have been launched in the Fan Edition range: the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. The 5G model was powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC in all markets. Samsung might consider presenting the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE in a similar fashion.
Renowned DisplaySearch and DSCC Analyst Ross Young has tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE can start production in July. It doesn’t offer an exact launch schedule for the phone, but if Samsung were to follow the tradition, it could be unveiled in September. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE launched in India in October, with the 5G model arriving in March of this year.
Young also disclosed the color options of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. The phone is designed to be available in four color options: gray, light green, light purple, and white. Other than that, nothing else was disclosed. The phone appears to be a slimmed down version of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, likely to be priced more aggressively.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE renderings were recently leaked and feature a design similar to the Galaxy S21 series with a few tweaks. The renderings detail the design of the future smartphone and the expected handset is expected to be quite similar to the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 + smartphones. The small change in the back of the Galaxy S21 FE is the camera bump. It protrudes from the back panel instead of the metal frame compared to other smartphones in the series. The body should also be constructed from a plastic composite similar to glass.
The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to have a 6.4-inch display with a slightly larger perforated camera than the vanilla Galaxy S21. The FE variant measures 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm and packs a 4,500mAh battery.
