Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G With 120Hz AMOLED Display, Snapdragon 888 Chip Now Official

Samsung has officially welcomed the newest member of the Galaxy S21 series, the S21 FE 5G (Fan Edition). The company officially unveiled this device yesterday a year after launching the S21 series which we really loved. 

Samsung says the S21 FE 5G is a smartphone that delivers select fan-favorite Galaxy S21 premium features in a well-rounded package. It is equipped with some of the most-loved aspects of the Galaxy S21 — eye-catching design, powerful performance, pro-grade camera, and seamless ecosystem connectivity. 

“At Samsung, we are focused on bringing the latest mobile innovations to even more people,” said Dudu Mokholo, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung Africa.

“We saw an incredible response to Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21 lineup. So we applied the same approach with S21 FE 5G, equipping it with the premium features that matter most to our loyal Galaxy fans — because we’re focused on delivering a smartphone that meets their most important needs.”    

Globally, the device will be available starting on January 11, 2022 through authorized Samsung retailers. Availability will however vary by market so we’re also not sure when Samsung’s local office will make it available in Kenya.
