Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 8GB RAM variant shows up on Geekbench

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE specifications include the Snapdragon 888 SoC, 8GB RAM, and Android 11.

Highlights
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 has shown up on Geekbench once again. 
  • This time around the smartphone appears to be running with 8GB of RAM. 
  • Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S21 FE sometime in August. 

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has shown up on Geekbench once again. This time around, it tells us that the smartphone could ship in a higher memory configuration than earlier anticipated. Some time ago, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE appeared on Geekbench with 6GB of RAM. The new listing tells us there will be an 8GB variant, too. That shouldn’t be too much of a concern, though 2GB of RAM doesn’t account for much of a performance upgrade. However, more RAM is usually accompanied by higher storage. It is unclear if the Galaxy S21 FE will ship with expandable storage, so that might be good news for many.

This particular Galaxy S21 FE, which was spotted by MySmartPrice, appears with pretty underwhelming scores. Its single-core score of 598 is about half of that of a regular Snapdragon 888 powered device. Similarly, its multi-core score of 2,610 is quite low, too. Then again, the listing is all about the 8GB of RAM, more than anything else. Some time ago, we discovered that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE price would be less than its predecessor’s, at least in South Korea.

Like previous iterations of the Galaxy FE smartphones, the Galaxy S21 FE is essentially a watered-down version of the Galaxy S21 flagship. No Exynos variants of the smartphone have been spotted yet, so it could actually serve as an upgrade over the Exynos-powered Galaxy S21 in many regions. However, premium features such as wireless charging, priority software support, Samsung Pay, and the lot will still be reserved for the flagship. Nonetheless, it still does a formidable job of emulating the quintessential Samsung flagship experience at half the cost.
