Samsung kicked off the new year by releasing the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition (FE). The S21 FE, like its predecessor, is a less expensive variant of the normal S21, with basically equal characteristics but more colour possibilities.
Design & display
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE boasts a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080px and a refresh rate of 120Hz, as well as a touch sampling rate of 240Hz.
The new phone is thinner and lighter than prior generations, and it has a Contour Cut Design. The camera bump is well blended into the back cover and has a matte surface to aid with fingerprints.
The handset is available in four different colours: white, graphite, lavender, and olive.
Internals & Storage
The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and has 5G capabilities, as well as RAM options of 4GB or 8GB and internal storage capacities of 128GB or 256GB.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has four cameras, including a 32MP fixed-focus f/2.2 selfie camera and a 0.5x – 1x – 3x combination on the back. The camera has a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, a 12MP 1/1.76-inch f/1.8 primary camera with OIS, and an 8MP f/2.4.
The smartphone has a variety of photography modes, including a Night mode that can capture up to 14 photographs and then merge them into a collage. The multi-camera recording feature allows you to merge the front and rear wide cameras to create a single video.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE features AI face restoration, which employs deep learning to improve the texture of the brows and lips.
The Galaxy S21 FE’s Object Eraser, like the Magic Eraser in the Pixel 6 series, allows users to remove stray items from photographs.
Battery and Pricing
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE comes with a 4,500mAh battery that can last up to two days.
The handset will be available for $699 on January 11th.
