Samsung Galaxy S21 FE with Snapdragon 888 chipset tipped to launch in India


  • Samsung could bring the Snapdragon 888 variant of Galaxy S21 FE very soon
  • It launched Galaxy S20 FE with Snapdragon 865 in 2021
  • The successor, Galaxy S23 FE, is expected to launch later this year too

Samsung could add a new variant to its Galaxy S-series lineup in India. Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be updated with the Snapdragon 888 processor in the country. This move comes after the brand initially launched the phone in January last year.

A new tweet from tipster Tarun Vats has tipped that the South Korean conglomerate will launch the Snapdragon 888 Galaxy S21 FE at a price of around Rs 40,000 in India in July. The company has apparently started training its offline retail executives for this upcoming launch.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was originally unveiled at a price tag of Rs 54,999 with the smartphone maker’s in-house Exynos 2100 chipset. The launch is rather unexpected but not the first time for the company. What’s interesting is that the move comes ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE global launch, with the first look of the device leaking recently.

Samsung made a similar move with Galaxy S20 FE

Samsung brought the Snapdragon 865-laden Galaxy S20 FE almost half a year after launching the Exynos 990 variant of the phone, in March 2021. What’s different is that the S20 FE with Snapdragon 865 not only provided better performance but also enabled 5G in the market.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE specifications

  • Display:4″  FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display with 120Hz Refresh Rate
  • Camera:12MP main+ 12MP ultra-wide+8MP Telephoto, 32MP camera at the front
  • Battery:4,500mAh battery with 25W wired and 15 wireless charging, reverse wireless charging available too
  • Dual recording, portrait mode, night mode, space zoom, single take camera features
  • Wireless DeX and NFC, IP68 rating, in-display fingerprint sensor

There are no distinctions in specs for this new variant of Galaxy S21 FE except a change in the chipset. It remains to be seen how the brand will provide justification to opt for an otherwise year-a-half-old model. As tipped, the phone could cost upwards of ₹40,000 as the older variant still retails under this segment.
