Samsung, a well-known brand in offering premium flagship devices also has this culture of providing a “Fan Edition” variant of their flagship phones. FE phones have relatively cheaper price than their flagship counterparts with corner-cutting on build & camera specs. After contradicting rumors for S21 FE to be canceled or coming soon, the phone is almost confirmed to launch in early 2022. Now, Let’s have a look at spec leaks, design renders & Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G price in Nepal (tentative).
Design & Display
The design language is borrowed from the original Samsung S21 model but the build quality shall be a polycarbonate (plastic) one. The display is still a 6.4″ AMOLED panel from Samsung with Full HD+ resolution. For refresh rate, we can expect the same 120Hz fluidness. The AMOLED display is also an HDR 10+ certified panel as per leaks. Whether it is an LTPO panel or not, we have to wait for the official specs sheet to know that.
For the optics as per leaks, there is a triple camera setup with 12MP+12MP+8MP resolutions. The main camera is a 12MP & the same goes for the ultrawide shooter. The long-lost sensor on flagship killer phones is back here, i.e, an 8MP telephoto sensor. For video capturing, 4K up to 60fps can be expected from the main sensor. Similarly, for the front camera, the S21 FE is likely to feature a 32MP sensor.
Some leaks on the internet point to its chipset as the mighty Snapdragon 888. Also, there is a rumor about it featuring an Exynos 2100 chipset as well. As far as what Samsung follows, it might offer different variants with two different chipsets according to its selling region. But for the FE phones, Samsung has opted for a Snapdragon chipset mostly than its own Exynos silicon. We can expect Snapdragon 888 version in most of the regions.
Snapdragon 888 & up to 8GB of RAM shall make this device a powerhouse. The new Exynos 2100 will also be no less powerful though. Also with improving One UI skin, Samsung can optimize it to deliver strong performance & value to the fans. It has come a long way to deliver a fluid UI for the fans with a pledge for timely updates.
The device is likely to boot on newer Android 12 with the latest One UI skin. One can also expect NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, stereo speakers, IP53 rating, 4500 mAh battery, 25W Fast Charging, in-display Fingerprint Scanner, Samsung Pay, etc. Full specifications are yet to arrive as of now.
Regarding the launch date, Samsung S21 FE could be launching on Jan 2022. Several leakster suggest the phone to be coming on that month. And most of them hint the phone to be 5G compatible, so there be no 4G variant. As rumored, the price of Samsung S21 FE could be around USD 599.
Samsung did launch Galaxy S20 FE starting at Rs.69,999 & Galaxy Note 10 Lite at Rs.67,599 in Nepal. That’s why we can also expect Galaxy S20 FE to launch in Nepal. Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G’s expected price in Nepal is Rs. 65,000-70,000.
