The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G smartphone’s price, variants, and other key details have popped up on the internet. The rumor mill has been building up all sorts of speculations surrounding Samsung’s upcoming smartphone dubbed, the Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition). Aside from that, the phone has made multiple appearances lately in the form of leaked renders. Earlier this month, a few official-looking Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G press renders were spotted online.
The word on the street is that the South Korean tech behemoth will be unveiling the Galaxy S21 FE 5G in early January 2022. With the phone’s launch around the corner, more vital pieces of information have surfaced online. Earlier leaks have already divulged a lot of details about the phone. Moreover, the phone was briefly spotted on Samsung’s Ireland website with actual pricing and variants.
The Galaxy S21 FE phone will reportedly go official next month. In the meantime, the phone has made another appearance online. Noted leaker Snoopy took to Twitter earlier this week to share more details about the Galaxy S21 FE. The tipster revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G phone has arrived on the company’s Ireland website. Moreover, the since-deleted official listing divulges some key details about the upcoming smartphone. Under the hood, the phone might pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is likely to compete with iQOO 7 Legend, Realme GT, and the OnePlus 9 in Ireland. Aside from that, Samsung Ireland’s website included two models. One of the two variants offered 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. Likewise, the second variant was listed with 8GB of RAM and a hearty 256GB of onboard storage. The 6GB RAM model will set you back EUR 769 (about INR 65,800), according to the listing. The larger 8GB RAM model, on the other hand, carried a price tag of EUR 839 (about INR 71,800).
Aside from that, the phone will be available in two color options including Olive and White. However, past leaks suggest that the phone will come in Lavender and Graphite color options as well. Regrettably, the listing did not include the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE renders. Also, it did not shed light on the phone’s hardware specs. According to a report by WinFuture, the two variants will retail for EUR 749 (about INR 64,100) and EUR 819 (about INR 70,100), in Germany.

If earlier reports are anything to go by, the Galaxy S21 FE will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The screen could come with a Corning Gorilla Glass layer on top for additional protection. Moreover, the front shooter will be inside a punch-hole cutout on the screen. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform. However, some regions will receive an Exynos variant.
Aside from that, the phone might ship with 6GB and 8GB of RAM and offer 128GB and 256GB of storage capacity. The Galaxy S21 FE might run Android 11 OS with OneUI 3.1 custom skin out of the box on top.

Moreover, the phone could draw its juices from a 4,500mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging. On top of that, some reports suggest that it will carry an IP68 rating. In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy S21 FE will provide options such as a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, and 5G.
