The display will feature a 120Hz refresh rate as well as an FHD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint reader. The device is likely to be powered by Exynos 2100 SoC developed in-house by Samsung or the Snapdragon 888 chipset from Qualcomm. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage.

On the optics front, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is tipped to feature in a 12MP primary camera with OIS support, a 12MP ultrawide lens, and an 8MP telephoto snapper with 3x optical zoom. It will draw power from a 4,500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging, wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging. The smartphone will be positioned as a budget flagship and reports suggest that it is likely to come in several colour variants like – green, white, blue, violet, and grey. The device will run on a version of OneUI on top of Android 11.
