There’s a chance we might see a Samsung Galaxy S21 FE launching at CES 2022 in January. Here’s what we know so far!
Samsung galaxy s21
It’s clear that Samsung is planning to launch the phone, but when? Almost no one can find out.
A tip from August 27 suggested the Galaxy S21 FE could debut on September 8. It never happened. We expected the phone to hit the market even sooner, but that hasn’t happened either.
Then, at the end of September, rumors started to circulate that the phone was not going to hit the market at all. The current global shortage of chips has been cited as the cause.
However, we have heard two more rumors that the Galaxy S21 FE will launch in January 2022. On October 15, leakers Max Weinbach, Ross Young and Jon Prosser said that Samsung was preparing to launch the S21 FE in January, Prosser citing January 11 as the release date.
As of November 1, SamMobile theory assumes that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S21 FE a few days earlier than planned at CES 2022. We’ll keep you posted when we know more.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: Design
Last year, the Galaxy S20 FE looked a lot like the Galaxy S20 line. This year, we expect Samsung to do the same with iteration 2022.
Thanks to trusted speaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks), we already have a pretty good idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE would look like and no, surprisingly, it looks a lot like the Vanilla Galaxy S21.
It seems that the overall size of the phone is slightly larger than that of the Galaxy S21. At 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm, this phone should fit comfortably between the sizes of the Galaxy S21 (151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm) and Galaxy S21 Plus (161.5 x 75, 6 x 7.8 mm).
Weeks after Hemmerstoffer’s leak, serial leaker Evan Blass stepped in with a few more renders.
Note that the Galaxy S20 FE has six color combinations and we’ve only seen five for tracking so far.
Color scheme aside, the Galaxy S21 FE looks almost exactly like the Galaxy S21 lineup (with the exception of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, of course). Unfortunately, Samsung doesn’t seem to get the headphone jack back, which is disappointing. But not surprisingly.
Interestingly, Samsung leaked the Galaxy S21 FE in a now-deleted Instagram post on August 10. The phone in the promo appears to match the leaked photos of the phone we’ve seen so far.
On August 20, a 3D model of the Galaxy S21 FE left little doubt about the phone’s design. Check it out above.
Leaker Rolan Quandt tweeted four photos showing the rear of the Galaxy S21 FE in gray, pink, white and green.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: Specifications
As for the specs, we’ve heard that the Galaxy S21 FE may not have the same battery as this year’s Plus model, which it did last year. 4,500 mAh cell. This makes it 500mAh larger than the Galaxy S21 but 300mAh smaller than the Galaxy S21 Plus. This FCC listing that we mentioned also suggests that 45W wired charging could be included, which would be a huge change for the series (the Galaxy S21 Ultra is the only phone with these charging speeds).
A big question is whether the Snapdragon 888 processor would be included with the Galaxy S21 FE. Fortunately, the previously mentioned FCC listing suggests he will be on board.
More recently, a listing on the Chinese certification site TENAA confirmed many of these rumors. He also revealed the camera specs, which appear to be largely the same as the Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21: a 12 MP primary, 12 MP ultra-wide, and 8 MP telephoto lens. .
Finally, a curious rumor is the Galaxy S21 FE’s relationship with the Note range. Samsung has confirmed that there won’t be a Note phone in 2022, but Evan Blass is postulating that the S21 FE could be what lands in place of a Note. This could now mean that Samsung will put the same resources behind the Faith S21, which has a note phone.
