The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be released next month, according to an insider. The insider also mentions that the leak for the release date comes from a Samsung representative. Another insider also tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE could be released soon, sharing branded photos at a retail store. The smartphone was also reportedly located in the Geekbench with an Exynos 2100 processor, the same processor found in the Galaxy S21 series in India. Other important smartphone specs were mentioned several times before.

Tipster Mauri QHD tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE may launch on Sept. 8, citing a source who obtained the information from a Samsung representative. It should be noted that Samsung has not officially confirmed a release date. Another informant, Max Weinbach also tweeted a branded image of the smartphone in what appears to be a Samsung retail store.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Specifications (expected)

A supposed listing on Geekbench, first identified by MySmartPrice, shows that the next smartphone could receive a variant with Exynos, as the smartphone, listed as Samsung SM-G990E, is shown with an Exynos 2100 SoC with a clock speed of peak at 2.91GHz. The smartphone can get 8GB of RAM and run Android 11. It scored 1,084 points in the single-core tests and 3,316 points in the multi-core tests.

Other smartphone specs may include a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The smartphone can measure 155.7×74.5×7.9 mm. Another report states that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE can come in blue, grey, green, violet and white color options. A separate report suggests it may include a 4,500 mAh battery.

The smartphone was also found on the Google Play Console. The list suggests it might come with a Snapdragon 888 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM and Adreno 660 GPU. It is likely to have a full-HD+ resolution screen (1,080×2009 pixels).

A 360 degree rendering leak shows that the upcoming smartphone shares the same camera module design as other models in the Galaxy S21 series. It’s likely to incorporate a triple rear camera setup – as also seen in a hastily removed Instagram post. At the bottom, the smartphone is seen with a speaker grill, a SIM tray and a Type-C USB port. The volume control buttons and the power button are placed on the right edge. It may also have a fingerprint reader on the display.
