Latest Galaxy S21 FE leaks show the phone is missing one big thing

But it's got all the trappings of a proper flagship phone.

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has leaked once again, showing off all the colors it'll launch in.
  • Samsung looks to offer multiple variants of the phone, but none appear to include a telephoto camera.
  • Rumors have been pointing to a January 4th 2022 launch at CES for some time now.

It seems that every week brings a new Galaxy S21 FE leak, and this week's is the most detailed yet. CoinBRS managed to get their hands on what appears are official marketing slides, as well as a spec sheet detailing the most important components inside the phone.

While everything looks better than the regular Galaxy S21 at first, the lack of a proper telephoto camera is a bit surprising. Given the impressive Galaxy S21 Black Friday sales that have already started, losing out on the telephoto camera could be a huge bummer for would-be buyers.

According to the leak, Samsung is changing out the 12MP main camera sensor on the Galaxy S21 FE with a 64MP camera sensor and removing the dedicated telephoto camera from the picture. Comparatively, the Galaxy S21 features a main 12MP sensor and a 64MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. The other cameras you'll notice on the back of the Galaxy S21 FE are purportedly an ultra-wide camera as well as a dedicated depth sensor.

It's interesting to see Samsung backing down on that telephoto camera but the rest of the spec sheet might help explain why. This latest leak shows that the Galaxy S21 FE will have the same Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 as all the other Galaxy S21 models have. Surprisingly, it looks like Samsung will offer a variant with up to 12GB of RAM; a 50% increase over the base Galaxy S21 model.

Additionally, the 6.4-inch display is a 0.2-inch bump over the regular Galaxy S21, and it's still got a 120Hz refresh rate to boot. The battery is also seeing a bump in size, up 500mAh from the Galaxy S21, totalling 4,500mAh in size. That's paired with 15W charging, which is the same speed as the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

As we've seen in prior leaks, the Galaxy S21 FE looks to be shipping in White, Black, Olive, and Lavendar options. All Galaxy S21 FE variants will have a plastic back just as the regular Galaxy S21 has.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
