The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has received several rumors and leaks in the past few weeks. From clear renderings to product positioning in Samsung’s lineup.
now korean news (h/t: Sleepy Kuma) has reported that the Galaxy S21 FE may be cheaper than last year’s Galaxy S20 FE. Stores suggest that the S21 FE can retail for 700,000 to 800,000 won (~630 to $720) in its home market.
That should be a big drop from the Galaxy S20 FE’s launch price of 899,800 won (~$809) in Korea. Of course, there’s no guarantee that other markets will see the same price drop, but Samsung is of course. Double the value in the value-driven approach launched last year. The price cut will put the Galaxy S21FE in direct competition with cheap flagships from Realme, Xiaomi and others.
Big discounts often result in compromises to reach this price point. So we’re wondering what kind of price reductions (if any) will be taken to achieve a lower launch price. The image shows a phone that looks similar to the Galaxy S21, with a cutout in the center and similar triple rear cameras. But in theory, Samsung can save money by using a cheaper camera sensor, keeping the same RAM/memory. Use cheaper materials and/or remote features such as wireless charging and IP68 rating.
