Night mode improved compared to its predecessor
The camera setup of the S21 FE 5G is identical to the normal Galaxy S21 : On the back there is a triple camera with 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle, 12-megapixel wide-angle and 8-megapixel telephoto lens. The night mode settings are said to have been improved again compared to the predecessor Galaxy S20 FE. The 32-megapixel front camera sits in a hole in the display ("punch hole") and, according to the manufacturer, promises "the best selfie experience from Samsung so far", especially for group shots.
