Galaxy S21 FE 5G Malaysia Launch

Malaysia Launch Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G

Great news for Samsung fans as the Galaxy S21 FE 5G was officially launched in Malaysia on the 5th of January and has been unveiled as a successor to the Galaxy S20 FE and a tweaked variant of the Flagship Galaxy S21.

For those who do not know, FE stands for ‘Fan Edition’, which has been around since 2017, and before that, I am unaware of any FE series apart from the Note7 FE since back then.

While fans will find most of their desired specs and features here, Samsung is also leaving out several premium aspects of the main Galaxy S21 series, resulting in a lower and more affordable price.

The all-new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G smartphone delivers select fan-favourite Galaxy S21 premium features in a well-rounded package to empower people to explore and express themselves.

This smartphone is equipped with some of the most-loved aspects of the Galaxy S21 — eye-catching design, powerful performance, a pro-grade camera, and seamless ecosystem connectivity.

TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business had said the following;

“At Samsung, we’re focused on bringing the latest mobile innovations to even more people,” “We saw an incredible response to Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21 lineup. So we applied the same approach with S21 FE 5G, equipping it with the premium features that matter most to our loyal Galaxy fans — because we’re focused on delivering a smartphone that meets their most important needs.”

  • And the S21 FE 5G features a sleek and slim 7.9mm-thick body, so it can easily slip into a pocket to keep up with any on-the-go lifestyle.

Power for When Fans Need It Most

  • S21 FE 5G is built with a new privacy dashboard that brings security and privacy controls into one convenient place, making the experience of One UI 4 on the Galaxy S21 FE 5G as seamless as it is secure.


I have also done several other Samsung smartphone reviews over the last few years while I do a lot of smartphone photography, which I post on my main site Malaysia Asia.

The S21 Fan Edition 5G is priced at RM2,899 and RM3,099 for 128GB and 256GB, respectively. You can also visit the official Samsung Malaysia website for more information about the Galaxy S21 FE 5G.

Again, one of the main highlights is the camera system on this fan edition, while the all-day battery seems to be what consumers are looking for nowadays in smartphones. An ultra-fast 5G, super-fast charging, IP68 water resistance and eye comfort shield are just some of the other bonuses.

With the Galaxy S21 FE 5G Malaysia launch taking place on the 5th of January, potential buyers can head to the official Samsung website to see what deals are offered for this fan edition.
