Bitter surprise for Samsung fans. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has been featured in numerous leaks and leaked renders for months, and it was expected to launch in October. However, a report from the Korean company seems to cast doubt on everything. In fact, due to the chip crisis, the new smartphone could expire.
The Samsung Unpacked event in October, which should have been dedicated to the Galaxy S21 FE, has been cancelled† At the same time, the launch of the mobile phone is currently being considered, and the company is reconsidering its decision to market the product.
The main reasons for this change of mind are two: the first, as mentioned, is the crisis of the chips, which makes it more and more difficult to find enough for a large-scale launch. The second is the unexpected success of the Galaxy Z Flip 3† In fact, given the sheer volume of sales, Samsung would explore the possibility of focusing only on the latter and focusing its marketing efforts on a smaller number of products.
Samsung’s official decision on the fate of the Galaxy S21 FE is not yet known. It is possible that the phone will be released but only in limited markets, which may still include Europe. All that remains is to patiently wait for further news about the confirmation or cancellation of the product.
