It’s almost certain that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S21 FE pretty soon, as the phone has now been spotted on Geekbench. The phone may launch at Samsung’s Unpacked event, alongside the Galaxy S22 series, during CES. For now, the date seems to be January 4, on which the new flagship phones from Samsung will be unveiled and the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will also make its debut. Earlier, rumours suggested that the phone would come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC, but the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE with Exynos 2100 was spotted on Google Play Console back in September. While the S21 FE is obviously a phone that offers value for money, with some of the goodness of the flagship S21 series, the phone may not come with a microSD card slot and 3.5 mm headphone jack. There won’t be a microSD slot either.
Earlier, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE with model number SM-G990E and Exynos 2100 was spotted on Geekbench, where the phone had a single-core score of 1084 and a multi-core score of 3316. Today, the same phone seems to have been listed again, as per a report from FoneArena. However, this time the phone has a single-core score of 1096 and a multi-core score of 3387. The numbers seem to be much improved compared to earlier scores.
Earlier, the phone was spotted running Android 11 while now it seems that the phone is running the latest Android 12. Apart from that, the phone can be seen as having 8GB of RAM.
