  • A fresh new leak has revealed nearly all the key specs of Samsung's Galaxy S21 FE.
  • The phone is tipped to arrive with a Snapdragon 888 chipset, a 120Hz AMOLED screen, and a triple-camera setup featuring a 12MP main sensor.
  • Samsung is expected to finally unveil the phone at its pre-CES 2022 event on January 4.

Samsung announced earlier this week that it will be holding its CES 2022 pre-show keynote on January 4. Although the company hasn't confirmed anything yet, it is being speculated that the Galaxy S21 FE could finally break cover at the event. Ahead of the "Together for Tomorrow (opens in new tab)" show, WinFuture has published a new report with multiple renders and the full specs sheet of the upcoming value flagship.

Per the report, Samsung's Galaxy S21 FE 5G features a 6.4-inch flat Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with FHD+ resolution, Gorilla Glass Victus protection, and a 120Hz refresh rate. Just like the rest of the Galaxy S21 series, the S21 FE is tipped to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chipset. The 5nm chipset will be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

As can be seen in the renders below, the Galaxy S21 FE will have a triple-lens camera system on the back. The main sensor is said to be a 12MP unit with dual-phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, and an f/1.8 aperture.

While alleged marketing slides that leaked online last month had suggested the phone won't include a telephoto camera, WinFuture claims the S21 FE will have an 8MP telephoto lens with OIS and 3x optical zoom. The phone will apparently also include a 12MP ultra-wide lens.

Some of the other key specs that have been "confirmed" by the new leak include a 4,500mAh battery with Wireless PowerShare, an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, a 32MP selfie camera, Wi-Fi 6 support, and the same under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor as the best Samsung phones.

While it isn't a "Fan Edition" phone, the vanilla Galaxy S21 offers much better value than Samsung's other flagships. It also has a more comfortable size than the Galaxy S21 Ultra and a brilliant 120Hz flat display.

  • It's the S20FE in a freshened case with a faster (but hotter) chip, minus the SD card. I like that the SD888 Does N71/N41 Carrier Aggregation, but not sure there's any real benefit to this device over the previous one. This might be the first time in a long while I skip a yearly upgrade cycle.
  • Do the FE phones have stock android?
  • Samsung does not do stock Android. Ever. It's going to have the One UI (Samsung skinned Android) OS no matter what.
  • I love stock android, but OneUI has some nice features. Issues from years ago with slowdowns and lag are long gone.
  • At least we know that AT&T will get it. AT&T just updated on Dec 15 their list of phones they will support on their network after they shut 3G down next Feb. The S21 FE is on it already.
  • Worse than S20FE
