Confirmed by the official announcement, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has a triple rear camera setup on the plastic back panel, including a 12MP ultrawide lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. On the front panel, the smartphone has a 32MP selfie shooter located inside a punch hole in the centre of the screen.
