Still lost in the limbo of Samsung factories, the Galaxy S21 FE is once again making a name for itself. the smartphone mid-range would have been seen in the Google Play Console and, according to this listing, it would launch in two variations.
After appearing on Geekbench and having successfully passed its certification for marketing in Thailand, the Galaxy S21 FE would take over one of the most controversial aspects of the classic Galaxy S21.
Towards an Exynos 2100 version in Europe?
For those who are not familiar with Samsung’s habits, it should be noted that the manufacturer has the custom of launching its smartphones equipped with an Exynos SoC (designed in-house) in Europe, while most other countries in the world take advantage of a state-of-the-art Snapdragon chip.
What does that change? In a majority of cases, Exynos chips are less efficient, less efficient and, above all, much more prone to thermal throtlling. In short: we would systematically prefer a smartphone under Snapdragon.
And the appearance of the Galaxy S21 FE in the Google Play Console and the list of “Google Supported Devices” spotted by the informant Mukul Sharma rightly suggests that the smartphone will be available in two variants: one under Exynos 2100 (reference SM -G990E), the other under Snapdragon 888 (reference SM-G9900).
It should be remembered that last year the Galaxy S20 FE arrived here in two variants. One 4G, powered by an Exynos 990, and the other compatible 5G thanks to its Snapdragon 865. However, this year, Samsung has completely given up marketing 4G smartphones on its mid and high range – thanks to its latest SoCs Exynos, precisely. We are therefore not under any illusion about the availability of a Snapdragon model in our latitudes.
But where has the Galaxy S21 FE gone?
It’s all well and good, but when will we see the color of this Galaxy S21 FE? The Galaxy S20 FE was launched at the end of September 2020. Suffice to say that Samsung is lagging behind with this new model.
But the reasons for this delay are obvious. Like the majority of the tech industry, Samsung is dependent on the availability, or rather the unavailability of components. In this case, the famous semiconductors.
Also according to the generally knowledgeable Jon Prosser, Samsung would postpone the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE to January 11, 2022. A date is usually reserved for the raising of the curtain on the all-new range of Samsung. Will she also be delayed? We still don’t know. But the specialized site Sam Mobile believes for its part that the S21 FE will be launched without the support of a conference in order not to overshadow the future S22, S22 +, and S22 Ultra too much.
