Samsung has subtly upgraded the Galaxy S21 FE with a Qualcomm processor.

From the in-house Exynos chip of the initial model, the new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Qualcomm version is now powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor. It’s not the current best, but the device isn’t Samsung’s current flagship either, so that should be fine.


The rest of the specs are the same as the original model that came out in early 2022. There’s the Dynamic AMOLED 2x screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500mAh battery, and 25W wired charging.

It also has a 12-megapixel dual-pixel main camera with OIS, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. A 32-megapixel camera sits on the front.


The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Qualcomm version is available in India for a price of INR49,999 (~Php33,500). We’re yet to see if it will make it here in the Philippines.
