Many sources claim that Samsung has started developing the successor model of its Galaxy S FE/Lite series in the last few days. This time, the smartphone will be named Galaxy S21 FE 5G, as predicted. Something important about the upcoming model has been revealed today.
This morning, the upcoming Galaxy S21 FE 5G visited the Chinese 3C Certification site, which is famous for revealing the charging specification of mobile devices. As mentioned in the certification, the new Galaxy S21 FE 5G will support Samsung’s 25W (11V, 2.25A) Fast Charger.
It is not mentioned whether the charger will come in the box or need to buy it separately. The charger EP-TA800 was first used in Samsung’s Galaxy Note10 series. This charger supports a maximum of 25W charging but can also charge at 15W (5V, 3A).
The model number included in the Galaxy S21 FE 5G’s 3C Certification “SM-G9900” denotes that it is a Chinese variant, confirming that the launch of this device will also happen in China, as well. The applicant for this certification is “Samsung (China) Investment Company Limited.”
As expected, we can conclude that the Galaxy S21 FE will use the company’s latest Exynos 2100 flagship chipset or the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset (only in the US and China models). Both chipsets are based on a 5nm manufacturing process and feature Cortex-X1 Ultra-Core for high-end performance.
The sources are currently claiming that the launch of Galaxy S21 FE is expected in September 2021, after the launch event of Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. Last year, the previous model Galaxy S20 FE was also announced in the same month.
