The yet-to-be-released Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has had a turbulent ride as it had suffered several setbacks leading to its early 2022 release. It has also been the subject of numerous rumors, as the scheduled date of released has been shifted or canceled previously.
We had previously seen rumored specs and renders of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, but thanks to a tweet, live images have now been shown of the smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is slated for unveiling in January 2022 during the first Galaxy Unpacked Event for the new year.
The live images of the Galaxy S21 FE emanated from Twitter user @Abhisheksoni130 and it is unclear what the direct source of these images is. The pictures revealed some important details of the Galaxy S21 FE. The new smartphone will sport a similar design as the Galaxy S20 FE. It has a flat 6.4-inch AMOLED panel and a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera at the front. The back has a camera bump with three modules structured into the side frame of the device. Unlike the Galaxy S21 series, the rear camera bump is color-matched with the phone’s plastic cover at the back.
Some key details are still not officially confirmed. However, the Galaxy S21 FE will probably come with a 4,500mAh battery, while the device will be powered by either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888, or Exynos 2100 chipsets. The use of these chips will however be dependent on the jurisdiction. The US market will settle for the Snapdragon 888.
The next Galaxy unpacked is rumored to come up in January 2022 probably at the same time as CES 2022. There is no official confirmation yet but the first Galaxy Unpacked Event for 2022 could come up around mid-January 2022.
