Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Won’t Come With a Charger in Box, No MicroSD Card Slot or 3.5mm Headphone Jack Either

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be a value for money variant of the flagship S21 series, but may miss a few key features.


The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is reportedly on its way, and now, fresh information about the device has surfaced revealing a few key factors about it. According to a tip by Twitter user Abhishek Yadav, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is set to launch without a charging adapter in its box, marking a departure from offering the charger in box for the S21 series. The tip also states that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will not feature any microSD card slot for storage expansion, and also skip the 3.5mm audio port.

However, the Galaxy S21 FE will come with IP68 dust and water resistance, an ultrasonic under display fingerprint sensor, wireless charging with reverse wireless charging as well, and a triple rear camera setup with an ultra-wide unit in tow. The design, as was true for the Galaxy S20 FE generation of phones, resembles the flagship S21 series. However, there may be a difference in the material of the S21 FE’s build, in comparison to the regular S21 devices.

In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is tipped to feature the Samsung Exynos 2100 SoC in global markets, minus in USA and Europe – where it may feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. Other specifications include 8GB RAM, and a 6.4-inch flat AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. The display is more or less confirmed to feature a drill hole slot for the 12MP front camera. To the rear, the triple camera setup is tipped to feature a 32MP primary unit, along with 12MP and 8MP additional units. It is also expected to come with a 4,370mAh battery, with 25W fast charging.

The Galaxy S21 FE, however, may come under criticism for not featuring expandable storage. As a result, it should come with at least 128GB internal storage. It remains to be seen how Samsung’s no-charger in box move may work out. The company so far offers a USB-C to USB-C cable for charging and data transfer, so users may be required to separately buy a charging adapter. The device may rival the OnePlus 9 Pro and the upcoming Vivo X series of premium smartphones in the country, once launched.
