Samsung is gearing up to launch a couple of foldable phones and other hardware at the Galaxy Unpacked 2021. The South Korean tech giant will unveil the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 5G at the event on August 11. Samsung is also expected to launch a Fan Edition variant of its flagship S21 series later this year. Reports suggest that the S21 FE is not launching in August. Instead, Samsung might launch its affordable flagship in September or October 2021. The company has not confirmed the exact launch date but might have accidentally leaked the device.
According to a 9to5Google report, Samsung accidentally confirmed the Galaxy S21 FE’s design. The company put up a post on its official Instagram account that included its back-to-school products. The image revealed the Galaxy S21 FE alongside the Galaxy Buds Pro and Samsung’s laptop. The device can be seen a shade of purple, which was leaked previously. It also confirms that the device will sport a camera module that is similar to the flagship S21 models. The phone has a triple-camera setup on the back with an LED flash placed outside.
The guest appearance lasted for only a few minutes as Samsung has deleted the post from its official Instagram account. This does not mean we do not know anything about the device as the rumour mill has already churned out enough information.
Samsung’s upcoming FE phone will sport a flat 6.4-inch 120Hz display. The AMOLED display will have a hole-punch cutout on the top-centre area. It will draw power from a Snapdragon 888 chipset and feature 8GB of RAM. The phone’s triple-camera module will feature a 32MP + 12MP + 8MP sensor setup. For selfies, there will be a 12MP front camera. It will have a 4,370 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. The phone will run Android 11-based OneUI 3.0 out of the box.
Samsung could launch the device in South Korea between 700,000 to 800,000 won (Rs 45,846 – Rs 52,395). In comparison, the Galaxy S20 FE was launched for 899,800 won (Rs 58,926) in the country. What are your thoughts on the upcoming Samsung smartphone? Do let us know in the comments below.
