Some new Galaxy S21 FE marketing material has surfaced online, pretty much confirming key design aspects of the phone, such as its camera layout, which is nearly identical to that of the Galaxy S21. It also tells us that the smartphone will ship with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel clocked at 120Hz and a hole-punch camera that houses the phone’s 32MP selfie camera. An optical fingerprint sensor will handle biometric authentication.
CoinBRS also happens to confirm some key Galaxy S21 specifications. The rear camera array is said to include a 64MP primary camera sensor, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a depth sensor, contradicting earlier leaks that suggested the phone would get a telephoto lens.
That being said, the above Galaxy S21 FE camera specs don’t seem to add up at all. Other than the 32MP selfie camera, everything else seems to disagree with earlier leaks. We learned that the Galaxy S21 FE would feature a 12MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens.
Then again, Samsung could have changed the Galaxy S21 specs at the last minute to drive down costs. The vanilla Galaxy S21 is already quite affordable and it runs the risk of undercutting the Galaxy S21 FE. Samsung, in all likelihood, would have been forced to cut corners, resulting in an inferior camera layout.
Under the hood, the Galaxy S21 FE get an Exynos 2100/Snapdragon 888 SoC coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. A 4,500mAh battery will power the Galaxy S21 FE. Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 FE will not ship with a 3.5mm audio jack. This time around, the micro SD card slot has been axed, too.
Strictly speaking, we learned most of what the leaked Galaxy S21 FE marketing material showcases quite some time ago. It is, after all, an incremental upgrade over the Galaxy S20 FE, so there’s only so much Samsung can improve. Nonetheless, we have to wait until next year to find out if this information is true, once the phone is launched at CES 2022.
