Samsung Galaxy S21 FE vs Galaxy S21: What's the rumoured difference?

Samsung is expected to be working on the Galaxy S21 FE, which is due to be released early 2022. The device should succeed the Galaxy S20 FE and sit below the Galaxy S21 in terms of price, whilst offering many of the same features. 

We've compared how the Galaxy S21 FE and the Galaxy S20 FE are expected to differ in a separate feature, but here we are focusing on how the Galaxy S21 FE could stack up against the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+, based on the speculation so far.

Design

  • S21 FE: 155.7 x 74.5 x 7.9mm
  • S21: 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm, 172g
  • S21+: 161.5 x 75.6 x 7.8mm, 202g

Based on the leaked renders, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will feature a similar design to the Galaxy S21 and S21+. It's expected to sit in between the Galaxy S21 and S21+ in terms of size, and it is expected to feature a plastic back, like the S21 and S21+.

It looks like the Galaxy S21 FE's camera housing on the rear will be the same colour as the chassis, while the Galaxy S21 and S21+ both have different colour camera housings - apart from in the black models. 

The S21 FE is expected to have a flat display and a centralised punch hole camera like the S21 and S21+ and it is also expected to be IP68 water and dust resistant. 

Display

  • S21 FE: 6.4-inch, Full HD+, 120Hz
  • S21: 6.2-inch, Full HD+, 48-120Hz
  • S21+: 6.7-inch, Full HD+, 48-120Hz

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is said to be coming with a 6.4-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution and Super AMOLED panel.

The Galaxy S21 has a 6.2-inch display, while the Galaxy S21+ has a 6.7-inch display, which would mean the S21 FE will sit in the middle of the two devices if the rumours are accurate. 

Both the S21 and S21+ have a Full HD+ resolution at 2400 x 1080 pixels, and they both have Super AMOLED panels. The two devices also have a variable refresh rate between 48-120Hz. It is not yet clear if the S21 FE will also offer this, but it is expected to have a 120Hz refresh rate, even if not variable.

Hardware and specs

  • S21 FE: Qualcomm SD888/Exynos 2100, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128/256GB, 4370mAh
  • S21: Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100, 8GB, 128/256GB, 4000mAh
  • S21+: Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100, 8GB, 128/256GB, 4800mAh

Rumours suggest the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor or Exynos 2100 will be running the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, depending on the region. This is the same as the Galaxy S21 and S21+.

It's been claimed the S21 FE will come in 128GB and 256GB storage options, but so far, there is no word on whether microSD support will be included. The Galaxy S21 and S21+ both come in the same storage options as what is reported for the S21 FE, but neither have microSD support.

Battery capacity for the S21 FE is said to be 4370mAh or 4500mAh, and 6GB of RAM, 8GB of RAM and 12GB RAM have all been mentioned. The Galaxy S21 and S21+ both come with 8GB of RAM and the S21 has a 4000mAh battery, while the S21+ has a 4800mAh battery.

Cameras

  • S21 FE: Triple rear (32MP/64MP + 12MP + 8MP), 12MP/32MP front camera
  • S21: Triple rear (12MP + 12MP + 64MP), 10MP front camera
  • S21+: Triple rear (12MP + 12MP + 64MP), 10MP front camera

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to have a triple rear camera, with reports claiming 32-megapixel or 64-megapixel, 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel sensors, though it's not detailed what type of sensors. We're expecting main, ultra wide and telephoto.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ both come with a triple rear camera made up of a 12-megapixel main sensor with 1.8µm pixel size, f/1.8 aperture and optical stabilisation (OIS), a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with 1.4µm and f/2.2, and a 64-megapixel telephoto sensor with 0.8µm, f/2.0 and OIS. 

There's a 10-megapixel, 1.22µm, f/2.2 front camera on both the S21 and S21+. The S21 FE is claimed to be coming with a 12-megapixel front camera or 32-megapixel front camera. 

Price

It's likely the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be cheaper than the Galaxy S21 and therefore the S21+. The Galaxy S20 FE starts at £599 in the UK for the 5G model and $699 in the US, so we would expect similar for the S21 FE.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 starts at £769 in the UK and $799 in the US, while the S21+ starts at £949 in the UK and $999 in the US.

Conclusion

Based on the rumours, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE could be another great device like the S20 FE, hitting the sweet spot between price and features. 

It is likely to offer a slightly downgraded camera system compared to the S21 and S21+, and it might not have a variable refresh rate.

It will no doubt be cheaper than the Galaxy S21 though, and with what looks like many of the same features at the moment, it's certainly one to keep an eye on. You can read all the rumours in full in our separate S21 FE feature.
