The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE lands on Geekbench with an Exynos 2100 chipset and 8 GB of RAM
After the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was listed on the Google Play Console with a Snapdragon 888, the entry-level flagship has showed up on Geekbench with an Exynos 2100 chipset. The device in question also has 8 GB of RAM, matching the Galaxy S20 FE.
Hence, it seems likely that Samsung intends to release an Exynos version of its next Fan Edition smartphone, at least in some markets. Theoretically, Samsung will bring the Exynos 2100 to Europe and the UK, with North America and China receiving the Snapdragon 888 edition. In principle, the two SoCs are evenly matched, with the Exynos 2100 averaging a 1% lead over the Snapdragon 888 in our database.
The Geekbench listings also report that someone benchmarked the Galaxy S21 FE running Android 12, which remains in beta for Samsung devices. Presumably, Samsung will launch the Galaxy S21 FE with Android 12, or One UI 4.0, a bump of two Android versions from the Galaxy S20 FE.
Based on recent rumours, Samsung plans to announce the Galaxy S21 FE on January 4, just over a month before the Galaxy S22 series. The device is expected to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, a 4,370 mAh battery and a design with a striking resemblance to the Galaxy S21.
