When comparing all of the specifications side by side, it was discovered that there isn’t much of a difference. The camera’s battery, the display is nearly identical to that of its predecessor.
This design language is carried over to the Galaxy S21 FE, which appears very identical to the S21.
The manufacturer chose a little smaller but higher refresh rate AMOLED panel this time, and the difference is nearly insignificant. However, there is still a difference since the firm has modified the camera module, which is essentially identical to the vanilla S21 but has been lifted slightly this time.
Even the display is more durable, thanks to the Gorilla Glass Victus panel, which replaces the previous generation’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The big differences are in the software; the new phone comes preloaded with Android 12 while the older model comes with Android 10. There is also a significant alteration in the CPU, which is of a better level this time. So, if you’re happy with the specs on the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE and your budget is low, we recommend the S20 FE. Otherwise, the option is yours, since we don’t expect any substantial changes on the recently released Galaxy S21 FE.
