Samsung didn’t even wait for a week to launch a new phone! (To be fair, it’s CES week. The company already announced its lineup of TVs and computer monitors.) There’s a new member of the successful Galaxy S21 series: the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G! This phone brings most of what you love about the S21 in a package that’s accessible to more of its fans. (The FE stands for Fan Edition, thus the focus on fan-favorite features.)
The S21 Design in a Colorful Vibe
Talking about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has to start with the design. We see that familiar Galaxy S21 back with the Contour-Cut frame that seamlessly integrates with the camera housing for a stylish, unified look. This phone brings a lot more color than its siblings though. The S21 FE comes in four colors: Olive, Lavender, White, and Graphite. Whichever color you choose, it’ll come in a stylish haze finish. This phone comes in a slim 7.9-mm body, so it can slip into more pockets easily.
Giving the Fans That Flagship Power
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE isn’t just about the looks though. It carries the same FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate as the Galaxy S21 and S21+. You just get a 6.4-inch display on the FE. If you need that flagship power, the S21 FE’s processor can handle all of that for you! Like its siblings, it either comes with a Snapdragon 888 processor (US) or Exynos 2100 processor (Global).
Powering all that flagship performance is a big 4500 mAh battery with 25W SuperFast wired charging. That lets you charge up the S21 FE to 50% in just 30 minutes. You are also sure that it can hang with your adventurous side with its IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
This phone comes with One UI 4 based on Android 12. It packs a lot of deeper customization options and stronger privacy controls. There is also a new privacy dashboard that brings security and privacy controls into one convenient place.
For Fans Who Need That Photo Finish
With the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, you can be sure to get that nice shot! That’s thanks to its triple rear camera setup: a 12MP wide camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 12MP ultrawide camera with f/2.2 aperture and 123˚ field-of-view, and an 8MP telephoto camera with 30x Space Zoom. You also get a very capable 32MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture and an 81˚ field-of-view for those clear selfies.
If you’re worried about storing all those photos, then you’ll be glad to know that the S21 FE comes in either 128 or 256 GB of storage.
Pricing and Availability
The S21 FE will be available on January 11, 2022, on Samsung.com, Samsung Experience Stores, Authorized Samsung Stores, Online, and Telco Partners. It’ll retail for P38,990 for the 128GB variant and P41,990 for the 256GB variant. The phone comes in four colorways: Olive, Lavender, Green, and Graphite.
