The Galaxy S20 FE was a smash hit, and Samsung was expected to unveil its successor sometime in August. However, the Galaxy S21 FE's launch was delayed to Q4 of 2021 due to chip shortages. Ahead of the launch, its design and some of its specs were leaked. It has now been revealed that the Galaxy S21 FE will come with a high-end feature that's missing even on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Samsung received the FCC certification for the Galaxy S21 FE (SM-G990U, SM-G990U1) earlier today, revealing the phone's connectivity and charging features. According to the certification documents, the Galaxy S21 FE features 45W fast charging (11V, 2.25A or 21V, 2.1A). Samsung introduced the 45W fast charging feature with the Galaxy Note 10+, which was also used in the Galaxy S20 Ultra. However, the company left out 45W fast charging from the Galaxy S21 Ultra, so it is interesting to see that feature return with the Galaxy S21 FE.
It has also been confirmed that the Galaxy S21 FE features mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G, 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac/ax (Wi-Fi 6), Bluetooth 5.0 (with EDR and LE), NFC, and WPT (Wireless Power Transfer). The smartphone supports fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy S21 FE with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It could have a 32MP selfie camera and a 12MP triple-camera setup at the rear with OIS and 4K 60fps video recording. The phone is equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/256GB internal storage, IP68 rating, stereo speakers, in-display fingerprint reader, and a 4,500mAh battery.
