We’re used to phones leaking, but it’s rare for them to leak as completely as the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has been, and now a full 167-page user manual for the device has been shared.
This comes from Evan blass, a leak with an excellent track record, so it’s probably accurate, and it certainly looks like it. However, thanks to the extensive leaks above, we still had a good idea of all the key specs and details, so there isn’t much new here; it is just one more proof that this is the phone we will see.
Key specs include a 6.4-inch 1080 x 2400 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 12MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide snapper, an 8MP telephoto camera, a 32MP selfie camera, a Snapdragon 888 chipset and 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
There’s also a 4500mAh battery on the list, along with 25W fast charging and 15W wireless charging, plus 128GB or 256GB of storage.
Available colors are said to include olive, graphite, white, and lavender, dimensions are listed as 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm, and various camera features are mentioned, including portrait mode, director’s view, and draft-shot. objects.
IP68 water and dust resistance is also mentioned, but what the Galaxy S21 FE apparently won’t have is a charger, microSD card slot, or headphone port.
Separately, leaker Ishan Agarwal has told 91Mobiles that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be unveiled on January 4, which would be just before CES 2022. They also say it will cost £ 699 (about $ 935 / AU $) 1,295 for 128GB of storage. and £ 749 (roughly $ 1,005 / AU $ 1,385) for 256GB.
That, as expected, is the exact same starting price that the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was launched for, meaning you can probably expect the same starting price elsewhere as well, which would be $ 699 / AU $ 1,149.
Review: Hopefully Samsung has something else planned for January 4, too
At this point, we apparently know pretty much everything about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, from the design and specs to the price and the announcement date. Some of what we’ve heard may be wrong, but given the quantity and quality of the sources (including Samsung’s own site in one case), we’d expect most of it to be correct.
With that in mind, the January 4 announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE could be somewhat of a disappointment, both because the phone itself doesn’t sound as exciting and because there presumably won’t be any real surprises.
That is, unless there are. It doesn’t seem likely that the S21 FE itself will surprise us, but there’s always a chance that Samsung has something else to reveal, something that it has done a better job of keeping under wraps.
Perhaps, for example, we could see the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 range, a range that has been leaked a lot, but not so much. Or maybe Samsung unveils something totally unexpected. We will most likely get the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, but we live in hope.
