The much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S21 Fan Edition (FE) will be available in January 2022. The phone was supposed to be released this year, but Samsung claimed some internal concerns that caused delays.
The device’s live images were just posted on Twitter, about a week after specifications and marketing images were made public.
The photographs of the once-elusive smartphone were published by Twitter user Abhisheksoni130, adding to the myriad rumours about the device. The photographs of the assembled gadget that have been leaked give a slightly clearer indication of Samsung’s imminent launch.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, like its predecessors, has a plastic back with a metal frame, providing it a robust yet light build.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE also has a triple back camera arrangement in the top left corner, housed in a rectangular module. According to earlier rumours, the smartphone would have a 64MP primary sensor, as well as an ultra-wide-angle and a depth sensor. The leaked photos show cameras with 12MP (primary), 12MP (wide), and 8MP (depth).
It has a screen identical to the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, with a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a 32MP front camera.
The S21 FE, like the other smartphones in the S21 series, lacks a MicroSD card slot and a headphone port.
The smartphone, which will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 5G, will have a 4,500mAh battery, up to 256GB storage with up to 12GB RAM, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and will operate on Android 11.
The leaked photos also imply that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will support reverse charging and will be able to charge wirelessly like its predecessor.
The new smartphone is rumoured to be available in four different colours: white, lavender, cream, and black. Price information for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is currently unavailable.
