The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, the affordable version of the Korean brand’s current flagship, has been delayed due to a chip shortage. But, nevertheless, we expect that in the next few weeks Samsung will finally unveil a «lite» version of the Galaxy S21. And the closer the announcement, the more information about the new product appears on the Web. So, today sources have leaked the user manual for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, thanks to which we became aware of some of the features of the new product.
Firstly, thanks to a new leak, it became known that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will not have a slot for a microSD memory card, and therefore users will have to be content with only the built-in storage. Secondly, the set with the new smartphone, unlike last year’s Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, will not come with a charger, but headphones. In the box, in addition to the smartphone itself, buyers will find only a USB cable. While this news may disappoint many Samsung fans, it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The fact is that at the beginning of the year Samsung followed Apple’s lead and removed the accessories described above from the Galaxy S21 series, explaining this with concern for the environment and the desire to reduce the carbon footprint and e-waste.
Also, the user manual has confirmed some of the previously known characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. These include an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner built into the display, an IP68 dust and waterproof housing, and a large screen with a high refresh rate. The front-facing camera will be built into a small O-shaped hole at the top of the display, while the back will house a triple main camera aligned vertically. The novelty will receive support for wireless charging, reverse wireless charging for recharging other devices, as well as Samsung Pay, Wireless DeX and Dolby Atmos. In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be similar to its older brothers and will be released in at least four colors: black, green, purple and white.
As for the rest of the technical characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, we previously learned that in some regions the smartphone will be based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, and in others — on the proprietary Samsung Exynos 2100 processor. The amount of RAM, depending on the configuration, will be 6 or 8 GB, and the built-in storage capacity is 128 or 256 GB. The autonomous operation of the smartphone will be provided by a 4500 mAh rechargeable battery with a 25 W fast charging function, of course, provided that you have an appropriate charger.
