After announcing the Galaxy S21 FE last week at CES, the smartphone is now available for purchase through Samsung’s website and carrier partners. There’s no pre-order period, as the Galaxy S21 FE is set to be delivered by Thursday, January 13 if you order today.
The Galaxy S21 FE will cost you $699, making it just $100 less than the regular Galaxy S21. For those that do opt to purchase a Galaxy S21 FE, you’ll be able to take advantage of one of three offers. This includes getting a $100 Samsung credit that can be used towards cases and other accessories. You can get a pair of Galaxy Buds Live included with your purchase. Or you can get the Galaxy Buds Pro for $30.
You can also trade-in your current device and get up to $375 off of the Galaxy S21 FE.
Samsung is selling the Galaxy S21 FE in four colors: Graphite, Olive, Lavendar, and White.
The Galaxy S21 FE is an interesting phone
We’ve talked a lot about how the Galaxy S21 FE is such an interesting phone. Primarily because of its price and its release date.
When it comes to price, it is only $100 less than the Galaxy S21 – which is typically on sale for less. It’s also a solid downgrade from the Galaxy S21 series, even though it has a screen that sits between the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+.
Then there’s the release date. The Galaxy S21 FE launching this week, less than a month ahead of the Galaxy S22 series. That’s going to lead to a lot of people waiting for the Galaxy S22 before deciding to buy the Galaxy S21 FE, and you can’t really blame them.
However, with the pretty impressive deals here for the Galax S21 FE and the $375 trade-in credit, we might see this phone selling better than we expected it to.
