Exclusive: Galaxy S21 FE Snapdragon 888 Variant Price Leaked Ahead of Launch

Thanks to the immense popularity and success of the S20 FE in India, Samsung later re-released the same phone with the Snapdragon 865 chip, making it 5G capable. The chip was also significantly more powerful than the Exynos 990 used in the previous variant.

The successor to this phone, S21 FE, also performed very well in sales because of balanced overall specifications. The phone has one weakness, and that’s the Exynos 2100 chipset. It had weak thermal performance and stability.

The Snapdragon 888 version of this phone, which launched in some other countries, was much better at thermal management and stability. Since there’s a general market preference for Snapdragon chips and it’s also good for further sales, Samsung plans to re-launch this phone in India with the Snapdragon 888 chipset.
