At the CES 2022, Samsung introduced the next-gen Fan Edition smartphone namely Galaxy S21 FE. The new Galaxy device packs numerous pro-grade features such as Camera, 5nm processor, and up-to-date software at comparatively lesser pricing.

While Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 FE months after compared to its predecessor, it may harm the sales of upcoming Galaxy S22 series devices, really? I don’t believe anything will happen.

1 month wait = next-gen chip

Just like the Galaxy S21 series, the S21 FE features Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 chip installations in different countries. However, the upcoming Galaxy S22 series will be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200.

While the company’s own made Exynos 2200 processor is officially confirmed to bring GPU from world-known OEM – AMD. On the other hand, the 8 Gen 1 is Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon chip launched back in November 2021.

Leave it! S21 FE is pricey

The Galaxy S21 FE comes at a starting price tag of $699, while the standard variant of the Galaxy S22 line will be yours by spending just $100 more. In favor of those $100, you will get a beautiful flagship phone with a futuristic 6.1-inch display.

Early access to One UI 5 Beta

The Galaxy S21 FE shipped with Android 12-based One UI 4.0 software, but it won’t be eligible for early access to the future Beta programs. On the other hand, the Galaxy S22 series will be the first to get Beta and Stable Android 13-based One UI 5 update.

It’s worth mentioning that the software updates support for the Galaxy S21 FE and Galaxy S22 series is the same, which includes three Android OS upgrades and four years of security updates.

Last but not least, there are a lot of things to compare between the Galaxy S21 FE and the upcoming Galaxy S22 series. While the S22 will surely introduce big upgrades, the S21 FE is not far behind in terms of all the user-needed specs.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Android Support

Samsung is killing with its Android OS and regular security updates, however, it’s quite confusing that the Galaxy S10 has less support than the Galaxy A53. The former belongs to the flagship Samsung family, while the latter to the mid-range Galaxy A lineup, but the Android support is just the opposite between them.

The Galaxy S10 series was launched back in 2019, with Android 9-based One UI 1.1 out of the box. As per records, the Galaxy S10 is one of the company’s most selling smartphone lineup, which introduced the first 5G model as well in the range.

The standard variant of the Galaxy S10 series with the least storage option had priced at $899 in the United States, huh, we are getting nothing for it, right? Well, it’s not wholly true that Samsung didn’t do anything for Galaxy S10 consumers, but it’s not satisfactory seeing mid-rangers have similar and more Android support.

Galaxy S10 Series

As mentioned above, the Korean tech giant launched the Galaxy S10 series with Android 9-based One UI 1.1. At the time of launch, Samsung was commented to offer up to two OS and three years of security updates. Later on, the vendor raised the OS support bar to three, up from the initial offering of two upgrades.

At the Galaxy Note 20 launch conference, Samsung confirmed an additional year of OS support for the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series devices. According to the revised policy, both of these older flagship lineups became eligible for another yet final major switch in the form of Android 12-based One UI 4.

But, old is not gold in Samsung’s dictionary

In the same document, Samsung revealed that the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 mid-range smartphones will also be eligible for three generations of Android upgrades, which is exactly similar to the Galaxy S10, Note 10, and even the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 series.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Android Support

What’s the similarity between Galaxy flagships and mid-range smartphones as Samsung offers the same support to both? Yes, there’s nothing to match in between and the company understood it later on when consumers started criticizing and questioning over support, but,

“I’m still unsatisfied”

Samsung became the best Android support provider at the cheapest cost in the industry, but it seems “biasness”. The Galaxy S21 and later flagships now offer up to four major upgrades, but the company has decided to do the same with the Galaxy A53/A73 and select upcoming A series phones.

Is it right old is not gold in Samsung’s dictionary? Let us know through social media or the Twitter poll linked below.

Samsung One UI 5.1 Version

Samsung is yet to unveil the Android 13-based One UI 5 Beta program, which will bring the One UI 5.0 Stable update to Galaxy devices. The official version of One UI 5.0 is likely to be arriving later this year, however, the One UI 5.1, which could debut with the Galaxy S23 series, will be a better Samsung Android 13 version.

As per the software system, Samsung manages to introduce three different One UI iterations per Android OS for the Galaxy devices. As the company is following the same strategy since the initial One UI debut in 2019, we can expect the One UI 5.1 will surely be debuting with the Galaxy S23 series next year.

Talking about the One UI 5.1, the upcoming Galaxy S flagship lineup is expected to feature this new version atop Android 13, similar to the One UI 5.0. The Galaxy S23 series will launch sometime in February or March next year, Samsung has enough time to make One UI 5.0 skin even better and present One UI 5.1.

New Features?

With the One UI 5.0, Samsung’s first aim is to adapt the new Android 13 operating system for Galaxy devices. It’s not true that the 5.0 version won’t bring any new features or changes, but the One UI 5.1 will be wholly amazing, I’m sure!

Last year, the company introduced the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 software, first to the Galaxy S21 series. The major OS upgrade delivered various new features and minor user interface tweaks, however, the One UI 4.1 arrived with a lot of user-friendly features, and of course with a big changelog.
