We had exclusively revealed earlier this year that Samsung will soon launch the Galaxy S21 FE. The phone’s design was leaked a few days ago, and it is expected to feature some of the most important bits of the Galaxy S21 such as a high-refresh-rate display, a triple-camera setup, and a flagship-grade processor. Now, its battery capacity has been revealed as well.
Last year, Samsung had equipped the Galaxy S20 FE with the same battery capacity as the Galaxy S20+, and we had hoped that it would do the same this year by equipping the Galaxy S21 FE with the Galaxy S21+’s 4,800mAh battery. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. According to our friends at GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S21 FE (SM-G990B) will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery. It uses a battery with model number EB-BG990ABY and a rated capacity of 4,370mAh, but Samsung will likely market it as a 4,500mAh battery (typical rating).
Galaxy S21 FE rumored specs
It has already been revealed that the Galaxy S21 FE will feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint reader. The device will be available in five colors: grey/silver, green, pink, purple, and white. It will also feature a 32MP selfie camera, an Exynos 2100 or Snapdragon 888 chipset, 128GB/256GB internal storage, and 5G connectivity. It will likely feature a plastic back, similar to the Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S20 FE.
Other features that we can expect from the Galaxy S21 FE are stereo speakers, 4K 60fps video recording, IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, Samsung Pay, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and 25W fast charging. Samsung is rumored to unveil the Galaxy S21 FE in mid-August 2021.
