While we tend to get excited about flagship handsets, a lot of the market action and volume is in the mid-range, and Samsung’s FE (Fan Edition) devices have performed surprisingly well.
This means this year’s Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is highly anticipated, and today Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks released the first renderings of the handset.
The device looks like the Samsung Galaxy S21 of course and, according to OnLeaks, has the following characteristics:
- Probably frosted “Glastic” rear panel
- Shiny metal frame
- 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm (9.3mm with rear camera hump)
- Approx.6.4-inch flat screen
- Single-hole selfie camera
- Triple lens camera setup + Flash
Some changes are apparent around the camera hump, which is built-in and protrudes directly from the rear panel. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is also taller than the Galaxy S21: 4mm higher, 3.3mm wider but it has the same thickness, to accommodate a larger screen.
The device is expected to sell in the $ 700 range, but pricing and availability have yet to be disclosed.
