The Galaxy S21 FE, which borrows the design aesthetic and most of the specs, including the Snapdragon 888 processor from Galaxy S21 is our pick of the best smart phone at the Computer Electronic Show, (CES) in Las Vegas this year. The phone is packed with fan-inspired features to fuel your passions and expand on your creativity. Whether you’re a gaming guru or social media star, this crowd pleaser has the style, power and pro-grade camera to unleash the best in you everyday. The base model comes with 6GB of RAM, a camera array with lower specs than Galaxy S21, and optical fingerprint sensor. However, the main tradeoff is that it lacks a shiny finish (it’s matte instead) and the S21 FE’s telephoto lens has a 8MP sensor instead of the 64MP sensor on the S21.
On the upbeat side, it comes with slim bezels which gives it a wide view and the vibrant color, Dynamic AMOLED 2X which is far bigger and lighter than the Galaxy S21. The Dynamic AMOLED 2X display here is a new generation of AMOLED displays that has seen improvements in color, HDR, and brightness. Plus, it has a bigger battery (4,500mAh), ships with Android 12 out-of-the-box, and boasts scrapes and cracks free with it’s super-strong Gorilla® Glass Victus™.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is available for sale starting on January 11, 2022, for $699.
