With the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, Samsung has finally officially unveiled its most affordable S21 model. The prices are particularly exciting.
Samsung hit the bull’s eye with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (“Fan Edition”) in the fall of 2020: Finally, a Galaxy that is on par with the S-Class in terms of processor, design and camera equipment, but costs considerably less.
Many had expected the successor Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G (referred to as S21 FE here for short) for quite some time, but the presentation in September 2021 did not materialize. Samsung has now finally officially unveiled its new upper-range model at CES 2022, which is exciting because of its good price-performance ratio.
Galaxy S21 FE: Design
The S21 FE is officially the fan edition of the Samsung Galaxy S21, but it is usually called FE for short. Thus, it is not surprising that the design is similar to that of the entire S21 series – rounded corners, a full-size OLED display with a hole for the front camera at the front, and a triple camera surrounded by a block at the back.
Like the predecessor, the casing is made of plastic – the normal S21 is also made of plastic and thus did not cut a bad figure in the test. The Galaxy S21 FE comes in four colors: light olive green, light purple, and of course white and black.
Facts about the display: Smaller and even brighter?
Interesting: The display size of 6.4 inches is between the normal S21 (6.2 inches) and the Galaxy S21 Plus (6.7 inches), the resolution is Full HD+ (2340×1080 pixels, sharpness of 401 ppi).
That is surprising, because Samsung recently relied on a slightly larger screen with 6.5 inches in the predecessor as well as in almost all current A-series models like the Galaxy A52s. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE comes with a “Flat Dynamic AMOLED”, the display edges turn out weak like already in the S21 and S21 Plus.
Important: The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is waterproof. The refresh rate reaches up to 120 hertz, and the term Dynamic AMOLED suggests a battery-saving variable hertz control.
The launch date of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be mid January 2022, some website are expecting it to be January 11 2022. The phone will be available in Pakistan in March 2022.
Price in Pakistan
The Samsung S21 FE is expected to be launched for 750 Euros which means that it will be around Rs. 175000 in Pakistan.
