We have another smartphone to talk about. And this is the newest of Samsung which is the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G. Let’s see the Samsung S21 FE price in Sri Lanka.
Samsung S21 FE Design
Let’s start off with the design. Its design language is not that far from the S21 series. It looks similar to the S21 when it comes to the camera setup. But when it comes to color, it’s kind of close to the S21 Ultra. Because it only has one color finish when it comes to its back panel and camera setup.
Not two-toned like what we saw in the S21 and S21+. For those who don’t know, FE stands for Fan Edition. Usually in this lineup, the color choices of their smartphones pop up. Because as far as I know, we have purple, white, green, and black. And all of the finishes of these colors are matte. So, it doesn’t look dirty.
It’s also not on the slippery side even if its back is not that curved. Maybe this is what’s unique about this one compared to other S21 phones. The side also accents the color at the back which is a really nice touch. It’s not boring to look at even though there’s only one color used in it.
Also just to add, we all know that we have polycarbonate backs on regular S21. So yup, we should expect that it’s the same here in our S21 FE. It’s the famous glastic back.
The three cameras on the back have a metal lining which of course is also metallic green. On its right, the volume rocker and power button are located. On top is our secondary microphone and on the left, it’s clear, guys. We don’t have any buttons here. And below is its SIM tray, another microphone, USB Type-C port, and the speaker grill.
Its storage is not expandable, but it’s dual SIM. And just like the previous Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, we also don’t have a headphone jack. By tapping the back panel of the S21 FE, it’s not loud, unlike other polycarbonate phones that I’ve encountered.
Samsung S21 FE Display
Let’s move on to its display. If you’ll notice it guys, our display panel is flat. It is attractive to the display panel that we have on the S21 FE. The bezels are very minimal even on its chin. And we all know that when it comes to display, Samsung won’t disappoint us.
The display size of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is 6.4in Infinity-O Full HD+ display. It also has a high refresh rate of 120Hz and has 410 PPI. So far the display of this S21 FE is beautiful, and probably one of the nicest displays.
The icons are really floating on it and the motions are fast. Anyway, whatever angle I look at the S21 FE, its viewing angle is good. We really weren’t let down in this part of Samsung.
Samsung S21 FE Camera
Let’s quickly talk about the cameras. We have a triple camera setup. And of course, punch a hole in the middle. We have 12MP as its primary camera and we also have an 8MP telephoto sensor and a 12MP ultrawide angle sensor.
Now for its selfie camera, it’s actually 32MP. So yes, the camera specs are not that far from that of the Samsung Galaxy S21.
Going to the camera menu, We have AI doodle, pro mode, panorama, food and night mode, portrait video, pro video, super slow-mo, slow motion, hyperlapse, and dual recording.
But as far as I know, the packaging of the S21 FE is just like with the other Samsung flagship devices wherein we don’t have a power brick and its retail box is smaller and thinner.
Samsung S21 FE Chipset
If you’ll remember, in the S20 FE they’ve also used a high-grade chipset in it which is the latest and best processor as of that year. But since of course, it’s already 2022 now, the latest chipset is what Samsung gave in this one which is, of course, the Exynos 2100. Yes. It’s not Snapdragon and as usual, it’s always like this.
As far as I know, only the US and Korean markets are the ones that get the Snapdragon chipset. It is already 5G-ready.
Samsung S21 FE Battery
It has 4,500mAh of battery capacity, and it’s also capable to be charged up to 25W of fast charging. So yes, when it comes to charging speed wired and of course, battery capacity, it didn’t change if we were to compare it to the S20 FE that was released last year.
When it comes to specifications, there’s not a big difference if we were to compare it to its predecessor, the S20 FE, and if we were to compare it to the regular Samsung Galaxy S21.
But obviously, since this is the last that was launched and its price point is going to be cheaper, then definitely this is the most affordable that we can buy in the S21 lineup.
