In the last few weeks, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has been the subject of several rumors and leaks, ranging from obvious renderings to product positioning in Samsung’s portfolio.
Now, Korean newspaper (h / t: Sleepy Kuma) announced that the Galaxy S21 FE may actually be cheaper than last year’s Galaxy S20 FE. In particular, the outcome suggests that the S21 FE may retail for 700,000 to 800,000 stinks (~ 630 to ~ 720 dollars) in its domestic market.
This would be a significant price drop of 899,800 won (~ $ 809) on the Galaxy S20 FE in Korea. Of course, there is no guarantee that other markets may see a similar drop in prices, but it certainly suggests that Samsung is doubling the value of the approach introduced last year. The fall in prices would also put the Galaxy S21
Significant price reductions usually lead to trade-offs to reach this price point, so we wonder what kind of cuts we could see (if any) to reach a lower starting price. The renderings show a phone that looks similar to the Galaxy S21, full of a centrally mounted cutout and a similar triple rear camera. But theoretically, Samsung can save costs by using cheaper camera sensors, supporting the same RAM / storage options, using cheaper building materials and / or failure features such as wireless charging and IP68 rating.
