Galaxy S21 FE is officially part of the Samsung range

After a year of speculation, Samsung has released the Galaxy S21 FE. Like the Galaxy S20 FE 2020, this device has most of the Galaxy S21's flagship specs, including a Snapdragon 888 chipset and 120Hz refresh rate display, but the 128GB model is just $700 cheaper.

With a Galaxy S21 around the average price and attractive mid-to-high-end Galaxy A52 5G options, the Galaxy S21 FE marks another crammed spot in the company's product lineup.

The Galaxy S21 FE uses a 6.4-inch screen which is slightly larger than the 6.2-inch screen on the Galaxy S21. Regardless of this difference in size, the Galaxy S21 FE and Galaxy S21 have a lot in common.

This is reflected in OLED screens with a resolution of 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, such as the Galaxy S21. The design language is also consistent and a camera lift is integrated into the smartphone's side fender.

The Galaxy S21 FE includes a 5nm Snapdragon 888 chipset in the US and Exynos elsewhere.

There is also a 12MP main camera with optical stabilization, like the Galaxy S21. Compared to the 4,000 mAh capacity of the Galaxy S21, the 4,500 mAh battery capacity is also better.

It also benefits from the Galaxy S21's 25W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, an IP68 rating, and 5G.

To increase the price of the Galaxy S21 you get more RAM - 8 GB for the basic version, 6 GB for the Galaxy S21 FE and an HD telephoto lens.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 6/128GB is priced at $700 and 8/256 GB is priced at $770. It comes with One UI 4.0 based on Android 12 operating system.

Samsung has a lot of mid-range devices

The Galaxy S21 FE appears to fall somewhere between flagship and mid-range phones. There is a plastic back that makes it look like a mid-range phone. But the large screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz makes it look like a flagship.

In addition to the slight delay in the real-time preview of the portrait mode of the camera, the overall performance also appears to be the leader. And there's no charger in the box, as is common with current flagship devices.

Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE as a budget-friendly all-in-one alternative to the Galaxy S20.

At $700, the gap between this and the base model of the $1,000 Galaxy S20 is larger, making it a worthwhile option.

But the situation is different this time as the price of the Galaxy S21 has dropped to $800. There's also the Galaxy A52 5G, one of Samsung's mid-range phones, priced at $500.

And do not forget that this South Korean company lowered the price of foldable devices. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is priced at $1,000.

This is not a new strategy for the company as Samsung has taken the mobile approach at any cost because it is possible. Additionally, the solid support policy that supports most of the devices makes it hard to beat its low and mid-range phones.
