Samsung is gearing up to introduce the Galaxy S21 FE 5G late this month or early in October. According to rumors, the second option is the more plausible. The device as the name suggests is this year’s Fan Edition take on the recurrent Galaxy S21 series. Some key details already emerged previously and the device is close in design to the S21 and S21+. The most notable difference is that the back camera island follows the color of the rear. The new handset will stick with three cameras and will have Exynos and Snapdragon chips depending on the region. Today, the device passed through Google Play Console.
Galaxy S21 FE will pack Exynos 2100 in India
The device was spotted in the Indian region, and this time around, running with an Exynos 2100 SoC. Apparently, Samsung is preparing the Exynos 2100 version of the smartphone for release in the country. According to the listing, Samsung is bringing the version with its latest Exynos chip. For those unaware, this chip has a single ARM Cortex-A78 core clocked at 3 GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.8 GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. It’s a 1 + 3 + 4 configuration that is fairly similar to that of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200, except for the distinct clock speeds and the 5 nm architecture on the Exynos chip.
The variant on Google Play Console has 8 GB of RAM under the hood. The processor is also paired with a Mali-G78 GPU which can handle most of the games on Google Play without any hassle. The device also runs Android Android 11 straight out of the box which is hardly a surprise. Although Google is expected to launch Android 12 later this month, Samsung has reportedly postponed the One UI 4.0 announcement. Therefore, the new update won’t be ready for the Galaxy S21 FE 5G in time.
The listing also reveals that the phone flaunts a Full HD+ display with a 2,009 x 1,080 pixels resolution. Moreover, an image attached reveals that the device has a punch-hole cutout at the top part of the display. The display itself is flat and surrounded by thin bezels.
