Exynos 2100 powered Galaxy S21 FE makes Geekbench debut


Last updated: November 10th, 2021 at 06:51 UTC+01:00

If previous releases are anything to go by, the Galaxy S21 FE is slated to arrive in both Snapdragon and Exynos flavors. An earlier leak had confirmed the former’s existence. Now, a Galaxy S21 FE variant has shown up in the Geekbench database running the Exynos, effectively confirming that not all versions of the smartphone will be created equal.

Renowned leaker FrontTron spotted the Galaxy S21 FE on the benchmarking platform, where it managed to net a single-core score of 1,096 points and a multi-core score of 3,387 points. While this number might seem a tad low for an Exynos 2100, we have to bear in mind that the device in question is running pre-production software, so the chipset might not be performing at full potential.

Underwhelming Geekbench score notwithstanding, we can see that this particular Galaxy S21 FE variant has 8GB of RAM and bears model number SM-G990E. The Android version has been cropped out but we can reasonably assume that it will run Android 11 based One UI 3.1 out of the box.

It’ll be interesting to see the market-wise breakdown of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE’s SoC. Things are usually cut and dry with the US and China receiving the Snapdragon version; however, things are a lot different this year, according to a new report. Then again, the performance difference between the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 isn’t as egregious as previous generations, so either variant will be fine.
