Samsung officially introduced her Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition) few days ago. The company just launched the same smartphone in India, but unlike the initial model with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 CPU, this new variant is powered by Samsung’s homemade Exynos 2100 5G CPU.
This isn’t a surprise at all, as most Samsung users are familiar with having two version of same flagship device, but powered with different CPUs. In most cases, the Snapdragon variants are offered to the US, Canada and few other regions, while the Exynos models usually heads to the international markets.
As for the Galaxy S21 FE, it is the direct successor to the S20 FE of last year. Note that the older model has a 4G-only model, but the two S21 FE models announced so far, are all 5G-enabled, and they both offers Android 12 with One UI 4.0 out of the box.
The phone come in a 6.4-inches Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 120Hz refresh, HDR10+ and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. There are three lenses on the rear of the phone; a 12MP main with OIS, 8MP telephoto with OS and a third 12MP ultra wide shooter.
