Samsung CES 2022 – Samsung Galaxy S21 Fan Edition coming to OZ 11 January

Breaking news at Samsung CES 2022 is the update to its hugely popular Galaxy S20 Fan Edition – the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition (FE) that delivers selected fan-favourite Galaxy S21 premium features in a well-rounded, well-priced package.

To be clear, this is the last of the S21-series released January 2021 – so it draws on that 2021 tech that helps keep the price in check – frankly, it is probably the most popular and anticipated S21 release.

The Galaxy S21 FE offers Australians great value. It has the best Galaxy features our fans love, including a fast processor, awesome camera, and an all-day battery with fast charging.
