The new Galaxy S21 FE model features a two-year-old Snapdragon 888 5G processor. It has been priced in India at Rs 49,999. There is only one variant available with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage. In terms of color options, we get a set of five choices, Navy, Olive, Graphite, Lavender, and White. The phone is also available on Samsung Shop online store. You can get a Rs 5,000 instant discount with an HDFC EMI or Credit Card.

Exynos variant discontinued

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE originally launched with an Exynos 2100 processor. The variant with this processor has been seemingly discontinued as offline stores are no longer keeping stock and the official website, too, has removed it from sale. The phone is still available on Amazon and Flipkart but that could just be the remaining stocks with these retailers. To recall, it had a starting price of Rs 54,999 for the 128GB variant when it was unveiled in January 2022.
