Galaxy S21 FE 2023: Specs and Features

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2023 has recently been launched in India. While the Galaxy S22 FE and the rumored Galaxy S23 FE are yet to hit the markets, Samsung has decided to introduce the latest addition to its lineup. Although the phone carries the packaging of last year’s model, it comes with a different and somewhat underwhelming chipset. Let’s dive into the details.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Snapdragon variant

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2023 retains the same design aesthetics as its predecessor. It features triple rear cameras arranged vertically and a center-positioned punch-hole for the screen. The phone boasts a Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with a generous size of 6.4 inches and supports a high-refresh rate of 120Hz.

When it comes to the camera department, the Galaxy S21 FE 2023 impresses with a 12MP main snapper with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens. It also offers a powerful 30x Space Zoom capability. On the front, there’s a 32MP camera, ensuring you can take stunning selfies and capture great-looking photos.

In terms of battery life, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2023 is backed by a 4,500mAh battery. It supports both fast wired charging with 25W and wireless charging with 15W. As for storage and memory, the phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. It runs on Samsung’s latest Android 13-based One UI 5.1. Additional features include stereo speakers, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and more.

The main differentiating factor of the Galaxy S21 FE 2023 is its chipset. Unlike its predecessor, which featured the Exynos 2100, this new model is powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset. While the Snapdragon 888 may sound impressive, it’s important to note that it’s a two-year-old chipset and might not be the best option in 2023, especially considering that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to launch in the coming months.

Considering the specifications and the price tag, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2023 may not be the most compelling choice. Priced at Rs 49,999, it falls in a range where there are better alternatives available. If you’re willing to spend up to Rs 50,000, options like the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, the iQOO 9 Pro, the OnePlus 11R, and even the upcoming Nothing Phone (2) provide a more enticing package.

Price and Availability

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2023 (Snapdragon variant) is now available for purchase at a retail price of Rs 49,999. You can buy it from Samsung’s official website or offline stores. The phone is offered in various color options, including White, Navy, Olive, Lavender, and Graphite.
