    Several key Galaxy S21 FE specs confirmed by Google

    Those looking to get their hands on the Galaxy S21 FE will be pleased to know that the device is one step closer to launch. The Bluetooth SIG greenlit the smartphone not too long ago. Now, MyFixGuide has stumbled upon the smartphone on the Google Play Console. The listing also confirms some key Galaxy S21 FE specifications that were foretold by earlier leaks.

    Galaxy S21 FE is shaping up to be the perfect ‘flagship killer'

    As you can see in the image below, the Galaxy S21 FE's CPU has three core clusters, one clocked at 2.8GHz, three at 2.4GHz and four at 1.8GHz and an Adreno 660 GPU clocked at 840MHz. In essence, this reconfirms that the smartphone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. Strictly speaking, this isn't new information, as the device has already shown up on Geekbench running the same hardware.

    Whether or not Samsung will launch a second Galaxy S21 FE variant with an Exynos 2100 chipset remains to be seen. So far, we are yet to find any evidence that supports the claim, but a previous report suggests that it could exist. This appears to be the entry-level Galaxy S21 FE version with 6GB of RAM, but we know for a fact that better-specced versions are in the pipeline.

    Other Galaxy S21 FE specs highlighted by the listing include an FHD+ (1,080 x 2,009) screen, complete with a hole punch for the selfie camera. While the listing doesn't explicitly mention the screen's refresh rate, we have speculated earlier that it could follow the Galaxy S21 series' lead and run at 120Hz, though perhaps without adaptive refresh rate technology.

    Samsung is yet to tell us when it plans to launch the Galaxy S21 FE. Rumor has it that it will happen sometime in Q4 2021. The initial release could be limited to a few markets only. Nonetheless, Samsung has acknowledged the phone's existence on more than one occasion, so we may not have to wait very long.
