The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition) will be more affordable than the Galaxy S20 FE, the South Korean announced Herald Corp.
According to the outcome, the phone will cost between 700,000 and 800,000 won (~ $ 630 and $ 720).
By comparison, the Galaxy S20 FE was launched at a price of 899,800 won (~ $ 810) in Korea. In the US, the phone was $ 699 when launched, and given today’s report, the new model is likely to be cheaper in all markets.
Given Samsung’s pricing strategy with the Galaxy S21 series, this was already expected. The latest S-Series phones start at $ 200 lower than their predecessors, something has helped sales but reportedly not as much as Samsung would like.
The Galaxy S21 FE will be promoted as the successor to the Note 20
To boost sales, the South Korean giant will position the Galaxy S21 FE as the successor to the Note 20, which doesn’t seem to make sense, as there are no indications that the S21 FE will be compatible with the S Pen stylus.
Nevertheless, if today’s rumors disappear, the Galaxy S21 FE will be one of the cheapest flagship smartphones available, and add to that its top-class rumors, it certainly has a chance to be one of the best phones of the year.
In financial terms, a lower retail price would be a bit of a blow, especially considering that the device is considered an alternative to the Note Note, but Samsung is clearly willing to do so to compete with Chinese competitors.
The report also mentions that the Galaxy S20 FE is quite a hit in North America and Southeast Asia and has sold 2 million units within a month of its launch in October 2020.
The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to be introduced in August and will be released at the end of the same month. He will share the scene with Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
It will probably inherit the main features of the Galaxy S21, which means we can expect a similar design and specifications. According to reports, it will have a 120Hz 6.4-inch screen with holes and will be supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which will be combined with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of memory. It will have a 4500 mAh battery.
We also expect a 32MP selfie camera and three cameras with unknown specifications on the back. The phone will work with Android 11.
