It’s been a busy week for those trying to keep track of various leaks and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, and we’ve got a few more pictures to share with you all: Posted photos of the handset in various official cases have gone. Retail website ahead of time.
These images appeared on the box in the UK (via GSMArena), and we see the phone in Clear View Cover, Silicone Cover and Clear Standing Cover cases – the usual selection of cases Samsung carries with its premium smartphones.
The photos posted on the box don’t really tell us anything new, but we once again take a look at the design of the Galaxy S21 FE, with its punch hole selfie camera at the top of the screen in the center and a triple-facing camera at the back. Side lens rear camera array.

Leaks, leaks and more leaks
Most smartphone launches these days are preceded by a slew of leaks and rumours, but we can’t recall a recent handset that we already know a lot about, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. Perhaps this is partly due to its delayed launch.
Just yesterday we learned that the phone’s price is likely to match the Galaxy S20 FE it’s replacing – so in the region of $699 / £699 / AU$1,149. On the pricing front too, we hear that the Galaxy S21 FE will retail for €649 in European regions.
Several leaked photos of the phone have also surfaced in recent months, while we’ve also heard a lot about the possible specs of this device – which probably won’t differ much from what we’ve seen with the Samsung Galaxy S21. Chain.
Analysis: What to expect from Samsung in 2022
It’s not official yet, but the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is widely expected to make its debut in early January 2022 as part of the CES 2022 tech showcase schedule. Once that launches, Samsung has a lot of phones coming next year as well.
We should be getting the Samsung Galaxy S22 line-up of handsets shortly after the arrival of the Galaxy S21 FE, which is due for break cover in February. The phones aren’t supposed to be much different from their S21 predecessors, but we should get past the usual annual bumps in terms of performance and camera capabilities.
One phone in particular to watch out for is the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which might even have a Note moniker attached to its name. It’s actually replacing the Galaxy Note series, it seems, with a design that’s different from the S22 and S22 Plus, better cameras, and support for the Samsung S Pen stylus.
Around August we should get a refresh of Samsung’s foldable phone, with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 rumored to be on the way. Add to that Samsung’s usual batch of mid-range and budget phones, and it’s going to be a busy year.
