The much-rumoured Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is finally here. Sporting the same design language as its higher-end S21 siblings, the S21 FE also shares many of their hardware, including the same Exynos 2100 chipset for our region.
For the Malaysian market, two variants of the S21 FE are offered. The 128GB variant costs RM2,899, while the 256GB configuration goes for RM3,099. Both models also feature 8GB of RAM; the same amount of RAM you get in the S21 and S21+ in Malaysia.
One of the biggest differences between the Galaxy S21 FE and its more costly siblings is build quality; instead of a more premium glass back, it has a plastic rear panel instead to bring down its price. But beyond this different material choice, you’re still getting quite a capable phone powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 2100 chipset.
Other specifications of the S21 FE include a 6.4-inch 1080p Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a triple camera system (12MP primary + 12MP ultra-wide angle + 8MP telephoto with 30x zoom) a 32MP selfie camera, an IP68 rating, and a rather generous 4,500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging; 15W wirelessly.
To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE retails at RM2,899 and RM3,099 for the 128GB and 256GB variants respectively in Malaysia. We received an invite from Samsung Malaysia to a launch event tomorrow, so we reckon the Korean company will share more details (including any pre-order promotion) on the S21 FE then.
