Samsung had delayed the launch of Galaxy S21 FE by almost six months, but now it appears that the company is finally ready to unveil the toned-down variant of the S21. With Galaxy S21 FE firmware becoming available it’s pretty much safe to assume that the S21 FE will be unveiled early next year.

The S21 FE firmware doesn’t reveal any new information about the specs, but it does confirm that it’ll run Android 12 out of the box. And since the Galaxy S21 FE will be launched before the Galaxy S22 series, we can say that it’ll be the first Galaxy phone to offer Android 12 out of the box.

The S21 FE will be eligible for three major Android updates and five years of security updates. In other words, it’ll get updated to Android 15 and will continue to get security updates until 2027.  You can know more about the specifications, price of the Galaxy S21 FE below.


Earlier rumors suggest the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and 6GB or 8GB of RAM, with 128 GB and 256 GB of storage. It will support 4G LTE bands, 5G, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. It is also expected to have a 6.4 inch AMOLED screen, and a 32 MP punch-hole selfie camera. It reportedly has an in-display fingerprint reader and is 155.7×74.5×7.9mm in size, with an IP68 rating.


As for the pricing, the 8GB/128GB variant is listed for EUR 920/GPB 776, which roughly translates to somewhere around $1,044 while the 8GB/256GB variant is listed for EUR 985/GBP 831, which roughly equals $1117.
