According to the rumors about the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition, it was expected that this phone would be released in only one model with a Snapdragon 888 processor, but it seems that Samsung wants to produce another model with an Exynos 2100 processor.
The Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is an affordable model of the flagship Galaxy S21 series that Samsung plans to unveil officially on September 8 this year. Of course, this is the probable release date of this product, and at the moment, the most reliable thing we have. So it is natural that there is a lot of news about it.
Currently, what we know about this product is that the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition uses the Snapdragon 888 processor, and this will be the only model of this phone that will be available in all markets. It looks like Samsung will no longer use its proprietary Exynos 2100 processor in this product, which was used in the flagships of the Galaxy S21 series; But the news that was released yesterday once again fueled the rumor that the Exynos processor will be the beating heart of a series of Samsung’s new phone models.
The new report was published on the SamMobile website, which is also a reliable source. If this claim is also true, then we should expect a cost-effective representative of the Korean company in another model with an Exynos 2100 processor. Of course, a picture of the benchmark result of this product with the mentioned processor has also been published, which you can see below.
The model number of the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition with Exynos 2100 processor according to this image is SM-G990E, which is different from the model number equipped with Snapdragon. The score that the new galaxy gained in this test in the single and multi-core section is 1084 and 3316, respectively, which is a relatively similar result to the model equipped with the Snapdragon 888. Of course, this processor still appeared slightly weaker than its Qualcomm counterpart, but it is powerful enough to perform similarly in all its applications or games. In fact, we mean that for the current need, both processors are beyond our expectations so there is no need to worry.
Of course, many still remember how the Exynos 990 fell short of the Snapdragon 865 last year and angered international users of the Galaxy S20 series as well as the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. The outrage became so serious that users asked Samsung to stop using the Exynos chip in its handsets. But Samsung did it again, but with a chip that is not much different from the Snapdragon model and can keep users happy.
If this is true, we should expect the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition to be available again in China, the US and South Korea with the Snapdragon 888 processor, and in international markets such as Europe and Asia with the Exynos 2100 processor, like the flagships of this series. The processor uses 8 cores, including a large 2.91 GHz Cortex-X1 core, three other large Cortex-A78 cores with 30% better performance than the previous generation (Cortex-A77) with a frequency of 2.81 GHz and four low-power Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.21 GHz. This is exactly the order and type of cores used in the Snapdragon 888, but again Qualcomm’s representative showed more power in practice. Both processors are made by Samsung’s own 5-nanometer lithography.
What do we expect from the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition?
There is a lot of information about the expected phone from Samsung, because we have been witnessing various news and rumors about it for a long time. But according to the latest news from this phone, we can say that it is very likely that Samsung will unveil it on September 8. Of course, this news was published by one of the lesser-known revelators in the field of technology, and it can not be trusted with certainty, but at the moment, this is the newest thing we have.
Before this news was published, we saw the presence of the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition on the Google Play console, which also revealed a series of technical specifications of this phone. Thanks to this, we realized that the new Galaxy S21 will use 8 GB of RAM along with the Snapdragon 888 processor, which we mentioned earlier. The internal memory capacity of this product will be 128 GB. Whether or not Samsung is building other models with different memory combinations is a matter that will have to wait a while to determine.
The Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is also set to hit the market with a 6.4-inch display with FHD + resolution, which also has an image refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, so that navigating through the various menus of this product is as much fun as working with its flagships. Bring the series to users. Of course, this display will not support the adaptive refresh feature of the Galaxy S21 series, which means that when you set the phone to 120 Hz, you will receive such refresh at all times, while the Korean company’s flagships in adaptable refresh mode, depending on The type of content displayed increases or decreases the refresh rate to save energy. It should also be noted that in the center-upper part of this display, there is a very small hole in which the selfie camera is located.
In addition, with regard to Samsung’s much-anticipated affordable flagship, there’s no mention of the popular 3.5mm jack. This is something we see in many smartphones these days and it looks like it will become a standard for all phones, both economy and high-end, in the next year or two.
Samsung has put the finishing touches on the camera, but like the previous generation, it has equipped this phone with powerful cameras. Of course, we do not know the quality of them, but if the quality of photography and video recording of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is a little better, it means that the user should be comfortable about the camera. As the main camera, this phone uses a 32-megapixel sensor, which is accompanied by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and 8-megapixel telephoto sensor. Also, the size of the selfie camera sensor is 12 megapixels, which, as mentioned, is located in a hole in the center of the screen.
In terms of color, it seems that Samsung has a good variety for this product and wants to sell it in white, green, gray, purple and blue. Of course, the names of these colors will be announced more precisely during the official unveiling, because each company chooses specific names for the color of its phones, and Samsung is no exception to this rule.
The Galaxy S21 Fan Edition will be powered by a 4370 mAh battery, which the user will most likely be able to charge with a 25-watt charger inside the box. If this does not happen, we will see a 15 watt charger for it. What we can almost say for sure is that the product comes with a charger in the box, which of course we have to say we hope will happen. As the default operating system, this phone will be equipped with Android 11 based on the One UI 3.0 user interface. According to Samsung’s new policy, it will end its work by receiving three versions of Google’s future operating system, namely Android 12, 13 and 14.
The most important news about the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is its price, which unfortunately we do not have much information about yet. Current rumors suggest that Samsung will charge a lower price than the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition to satisfy users; The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition has hit the market for $ 699, and it remains to be seen whether Samsung will consider a lower price for the new model.
