Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Clears Bluetooth Certification Ahead of its October Launch

Samsung Galaxy S21 Fan Edition was expected to launch at the recent Galaxy Unpacked event, but the release was pushed off to October. Among other delays, Samsung is still securing product certifications for the S21 FE. The Bluetooth SIG has just signed off on the latest Fan Edition.

The phone is featured on the Bluetooth SIG database under three model numbers — SM-G990B, SM-G990B, and SM-G990B. Oddly enough, Bluetooth SIG certified the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE with Bluetooth 5.0, not the current-gen Bluetooth 5.2. Since it’s a connectivity certificate, the document doesn’t contain any system specs.

From previous leaks, we already know what to expect from the Galaxy S21 FE. The supposed flagship killer is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888/Exynos 2100 chipsets. It works with 8GB of memory and 256GB of next-gen UFS 3.1 storage. 

The new Samsung mobile phone for 2021 is all powered by a 4500 mAh battery and the Android11-based OneUI 3. The Galaxy S21 FE is quick-charged at 25W over the wire and 15W wirelessly. You can also reverse charge other devices at 4.5W. 

Samsung published a promo image for the Galaxy S21 FE that showcases it in gray, mint, lavender, and white shades. The display is flat with a curved frame surrounding it. The panel features a 32MP front camera inside an O-hole. 

The backplate follows the design language of the S21 series. We find a camera island that merges with the frame, except the S21 FE finish is even, uniform, and single-tone. Three 12MP cameras are housed inside the camera bump.
