Released in January 2022, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G brings with it a variety of brand-new features to enjoy, from the One UI 4.0 operating system to the outstanding triple-lens camera system. We take a look at the S21 FE 5G specs and unpack the best features that make it such a sought-after handset below.

1) Design & display

As you pick up the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, you immediately notice the expansive 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display. This extra screen estate makes binge-watching a Netflix show and delving into YouTube an immersive, cinematic experience.

You’ll also notice the super-smooth user interface which is courtesy of the excellent 120Hz refresh rate. Effortlessly switch from gaming to watching your favourite show with ease. The refresh rate is adaptive too, which means the S21 FE 5G will automatically adjust graphics transitions depending on what you’re doing.

Another great feature is the Infinity-O display, which reduces the harmful blue light that can be troublesome when you’re using your device after dark. As a result, the device manages to minimise any eye strain, preventing any disruption to your sleep.

2) Triple-lens camera


Turn the S21 FE 5G over and you’ll find an advanced triple-lens camera system, including an 8MP rear telephoto lens, 12MP wide-angle camera, and 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 123-degree field of view. With a camera system this impressive, you’re able to take a variety of photographs, from family portraits to long-distanced landscape shots. What’s more, the 3x optical zoom enables you to get even closer to your subjects, without moving a muscle, so you can bring your subject closer while retaining stunning definition.

On top of that, the dedicated night mode feature allows you to take incredibly sharp photographs even in low-light. This sophisticated handset automatically enhances the brightness of any image taken in low-light settings and transforms them into crystal clear content.

Not to mention the highly practical optical image stabilisation feature. Perfect for aspiring photographers and vloggers, OIS is built-in to reduce any shakiness during handheld photography and video recording, meaning you’re able to create professional-grade content every time.

3) One UI 4.0


The S21 FE 5G utilises Android 12’s operating system but is overlaid with Samsung’s unique branded interface, One UI 4.0. This operating system comes pre-downloaded on the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G and brings with it a whole host of exciting features for you to explore. One highlight is the useful one-handed mode, which shrinks the entire user interface into a smaller window in the bottom right-hand corner. You can then control your device by simply using your thumb, improving both accessibility and ergonomic comfort.

Another feature of the S21 FE 5G specs which has got us all talking is the convenient Quick Tap feature. This allows you to quickly perform an action by simply tapping the back of your device. Perform a myriad of actions like launching your favourite app, taking a screenshot, triggering Google Assistant, and much more.

4) 4500mAh battery

Choose from a variety of charging options, like Super-Fast Charging, which – according to Samsung – enables your smartphone to reach up to 50% battery within 30 minutes. Alternatively, take full advantage of this handset’s Fast Wireless Charging (sold separately) capabilities. This means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the new episode of your favourite weekly podcast, instead of waiting for your device to reach full charge.

5) Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 5G


The ultra-fast performance of the S21 FE 5G is all thanks to the powerful Qualcomm SM3850 Snapdragon 88.
