After the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 (review), the more affordable Fan Edition of the device will be hitting the market sometime towards the end of 2021. Samsung usually releases an FE (Fan Edition) after the launch of its flagship devices and this year is no different, with the rumoured launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. A reliable tipster on Voice called @OnLeaks has just released a few unofficial renders of the Galaxy S21 FE. From what we can see, the Fan Edition of the Galaxy S21 doesn’t look too different from its older sibling. It will likely come with a frosted ‘Glastic’ rear panel as well as a shiny metal frame.
The rear camera housing unit has also seen some subtle but important changes. On the Samsung Galaxy S21, the camera bump extended from the metal frame while the bump on S21 Fan Edition is smoothly integrated and pops up directly from the rear panel itself. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is also a bit larger than the Galaxy S21. It is also 4mm taller and 3.3mm wider but maintains the same thickness. The Galaxy S21 FE could also come with a 6.4-inch flat display as well as a single punch-hole selfie camera. It could also come with a triple-lens camera setup, which can be found on the Galaxy S21 as well. But, with a cheaper price point, the lenses could be downgraded.
There are no announcements from Samsung but OnLeaks has even gone on the speculate the price of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE could hit the market at $700 (Rs 53,000 approx converted). Other reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE could be launched sometime around August but again, this is just speculation, at this point.
