New details emerge on the front Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, successor to Galaxy S20 FE, which became one of the best-selling smartphones in the last part of 2020. According to rumors launched by the Galaxy Club website, the new device will be equipped with a 4,500mAh battery.

Presented under the code number EB-BG990ABY, the battery in question has a nominal capacity of 4.370mAh, but it is very likely that it will be launched on the market with the classic one of 4.500mAh.

As for the design, however, the Galaxy S21 FE will have a look similar to the standard model, equipped with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with FullHD + resolution and refresh rate up to 120Hz, and a 32MP selfie camera.

Inside the smartphone there is the Exynos 2100 chip, already installed in the latest top of the range of the house, accompanied by 6GB or 8GB of RAM and equipped with 128GB or 256GB of internal memory. expandable. The operating system should most likely be Android 11 with One UI 3.1 skin.

The new smartphone will be available in numerous colors, including pastel shades of purple, green and blue, with a price that should be around 650 euros. It will be equipped with a Snapdragon 888 processor and will guarantee 25W fast wireless charging and reverse charging. Finally, it is worth noting the resistance to dust and water thanks to the IP68 certification and the Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connections.

At the moment there are no confirmations in this regard, but the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be officially presented in August.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Could Cause Problems For Apple, Google

Samsung's Galaxy S20 FE is surprisingly good value for your money.


Our first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE surfaced recently thanks to rendered images based on leaked specifications. They reveal that Samsung’s combination of a budget price and high-end specifications could cause problems for rivals Apple and Google. 

The renders (via LetsGoDigital and OnLeaks) show us that the new handset will look like most of Samsung’s current lineup that isn’t foldable. There’s a full-screen display, shimmering chassis (plastic instead of the S21 Ultra's glass) and three cameras on the back with a holepunch selfie snapper on the front. 

But the specs offer a glimpse into Samsung’s plans with a rumoured Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 chipset, up to 8GB of RAM, and a 6.4-inch high refresh rate AMOLED display. If accurate, this would deliver on Samsung's promise of high performance at a low cost, which is something the S20 FE largely achieved with a then top-end Snapdragon 865 chip, premium design and excellent camera hardware that borrowed from Samsung’s best. 

Where the FE fell down was its persistent touchscreen issues, which appeared to affect thousands of users. Samsung released several updates to solve it, which it did for some but not all. A repair expert I spoke with (check out my video below) said this may be a hardware calibration issue that can’t be completely fixed with software updates. If you’re being generous you could put this down to first generation woes, which is why I generally recommend buying the next device in a new range. The S21 FE could be that phone. 

Samsung has form when it comes to perfecting its tech and fixing problems in its second generation of devices. The Fold 2 vastly improved on the conceptually impressive, but fundamentally flawed, original Fold. The S21 Ultra fixed the S20’s long list of problems, especially in the camera department. So I have some faith that the Korean company will follow suit in its second try at the FE. 

What stopped me from properly recommending the S20 FE was the touchscreen responsiveness problem, which was a serious slip up. But as an idea, the FE range is a persistent threat to the competition. Google’s Pixel line has long been praised for having the best still photography for a reasonable price, and Apple’s iPhones bring stability alongside top-end photography and a premium user experience. The S21 Ultra beat both phones in those areas, and that’s the first time I’ve said that about a Samsung phone in years.

More than that, the Pixel 5 struggled with a screen gap issue on release and thousands of iPhone 12 owners have complained about their displays having a green tint. In contrast, Samsung’s S21 range hasn’t had any serious problems (yet). 

Can Samsung carry that stability and consistency through to the FE? Or, more importantly, can Samsung find a way of including its industry-beating S21 Ultra camera tech - the optical zoom skills in particular - in the FE? If there’s no Note phone this year, then it's possible. The Korean company’s end of year line-up - the Fold 3, 21 FE and S22 - will be a tantalising prospect for any buyer. But an affordable FE with Samsung’s best camera tech could be irresistible. Before all of that, though, Samsung needs to iron out the previous model’s display problems.
