Camera

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE includes four cameras with a 32MP fixed-focus f/2.2 selfie shooter and a 0.5x – 1x – 3x combo on the rear. The camera is equipped with a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, 12MP 1/1.76-inch f/1.8 main camera with OIS support and an 8MP f/2.4.

The smartphone features multiple shooting modes including a Night mode that can take up to 14 images that combine the photos into a collage. The multi-camera recording can combine the front and rear wide cameras to produce a single video.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE makes use of AI face restoration that uses deep learning to enhance textures in the eyebrows and lips.

Similar to the Magic Eraser in the Pixel 6 series, the Object Eraser of the Galaxy S21 FE lets users get rid of straggle objects in images.
