The device was spotted in the Indian region, and this time around, running with an Exynos 2100 SoC. Apparently, Samsung is preparing the Exynos 2100 version of the smartphone for release in the country. According to the listing, Samsung is bringing the version with its latest Exynos chip. For those unaware, this chip has a single ARM Cortex-A78 core clocked at 3 GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.8 GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. It’s a 1 + 3 + 4 configuration that is fairly similar to that of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200, except for the distinct clock speeds and the 5 nm architecture on the Exynos chip.
The variant on Google Play Console has 8 GB of RAM under the hood. The processor is also paired with a Mali-G78 GPU which can handle most of the games on Google Play without any hassle. The device also runs Android Android 11 straight out of the box which is hardly a surprise. Although Google is expected to launch Android 12 later this month, Samsung has reportedly postponed the One UI 4.0 announcement. Therefore, the new update won’t be ready for the Galaxy S21 FE 5G in time.
The listing also reveals that the phone flaunts a Full HD+ display with a 2,009 x 1,080 pixels resolution. Moreover, an image attached reveals that the device has a punch-hole cutout at the top part of the display. The display itself is flat and surrounded by thin bezels.
