Samsung Galaxy S21 FE certified by TENAA, specs revealed
There is a 32 Megapixel camera on the back instead of 12 Megapixel
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is in the news for quite some time now & as we mentioned in our previous post on the phone, Samsung had plans to launch it in Q3 2021, but due to chip shortage, the launch is now expected to take place in October. This is the successor of last year’s Galaxy S20 FE, which sold like hot cake due to the impressive specifications it offered for the price. We have already seen the design of S21 FE via the official and the unofficial renders, and today, the phone showed up on the Chinese Certification Agency, TENAA. This listing now only revealed the design once again but also some of the specifications.
There isn’t anything new that we got to know about the design. There is the Galaxy S20-like design that includes a triple camera setup on the rear & a flat screen with a centered hole-punch on the front. The TENAA listing reveals that the chipset has an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.8GHz. Since the Snapdragon 888 SOC is clocked at 2.84GHz, this might have confirmed that the Galaxy S21 FE has Snapdragon 888. This is because the Snapdragon 870 & 865+ have 3.2GHz & 3.1GHz CPUs, respectively & Samsung won’t go for the Snapdragon 865 again since that powered the last year’s S20 FE.
TENAA listing also revealed that the triple camera setup on the back no longer includes three 12MP sensors. Instead, this time, there is a 32 Megapixel camera paired with 12 Megapixel & 8 Megapixel sensors. So we believe that the 12MP camera is the primary camera, the 32MP sensor is for ultrawide shots & the 8MP sensor is for zoom shots. For selfies, there is now a 12MP camera as per TENAA. The listing also shows that there is 3X Optical Zoom.
The battery size is mentioned as 4,370mAh, so the typical capacity is 4,500mAh. This means there is no change in the battery size from last year. There is a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED panel on the front.
Well, Samsung is yet to say anything regarding the launch of this phone, so we still believe the reports of an October launch. Stay tuned for more updates.
