Long awaited Samsung Galaxy S21 FE seems to be around the corner, given the number of unofficial appearances he’s made in recent weeks. After appearing on Google Play Store Console, Instagram and further French Samsung website, another observation was made on Geekbench.
That in itself would be unremarkable considering the phone first appeared on Geekbench back in May, but that’s a bit different: instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip shown in previous listings, it has an Exynos 2100 chipset…
This version of the phone is called “SM-G990E”, while Qualcomm’s version looks like “SM-G990B”, but the performance seems to be almost the same whatever model is tested. This list gives 1084 and 3316 points for single and multi-core tests, as well as various recent Qualcomm listings everyone seems to be in the same field.
While tech-savvy shoppers have worried in the past about whether they’ll get Qualcomm or Exynos chips in their phones and what impact this will have on performance and battery life, the news of the two versions here is actually good news. Considering the S21 FE was rumored to be canceled due to the lack of chips at some point, the fact that Samsung is releasing two versions suggests it won’t be a limited launch like Google did with the Pixel 5a.
So when can you buy it? Leader Maury QHD believes Samsung will unveil the phone on Wednesday, September 8th.
Separately, however, is the new report of the Korean edition. Elec states that the phone should go into mass production in September, which makes the leaked date seem a little upbeat.
Of course, announcing a new phone and making it available are two different things, so perhaps the September 8th rumor – whether it’s a media event or more likely a press release – will simply announce specs with the date of purchase of the phone. a month or two in the future. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough.
