The Galaxy S20 FE was a huge success, thanks to the combination of features it offered at an attractive price point. This year, the smartphone will be succeeded by the Galaxy S21 FE. The smartphone is expected to be officially unveiled sometime in the second half of this year. Now, the official-looking renders of the smartphone have been leaked for the first time.
Reliable leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has published the renders of the Galaxy S21 FE on Twitter, revealing the phone's design, color options, and some features. The smartphone appears to have a design that's quite similar to that of the Galaxy S21+, albeit with a plastic camera housing instead of metal and a metal frame. The Galaxy S21 FE has a bezel-less screen at the front and a triple-camera setup at the rear. The phone will be available in at least four colors that have been leaked: black, lilac (purple), olive green, and white.
Galaxy S21 FE leaked specifications
Going by previous leaks and reports, the Galaxy S21 FE features a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Its dimensions are said to be 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm. The smartphone will run Android 11 out of the box and will be equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor. It will have 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB internal storage. It might lack a microSD card slot, though, so storage space expansion might not be possible.
The Galaxy S21 FE is rumored to feature a 32MP selfie camera, similar to that of the Galaxy S20 FE. At the rear, it could have a 12MP primary camera with OIS, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and an 8MP or 12MP telephoto camera. Its connectivity options could include 5G, GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. The phone is powered by a 4,500mAh battery and will support 25W fast charging, fast wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging.
Other features of the upcoming Fan Edition smartphone could include stereo speakers, IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, Samsung Pay, and an under-display fingerprint reader.
