There has been a lot of confusion around the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition launch. Previously, it was rumoured that Samsung will launch its affordable flagship in select markets in October or November 2021. Later, the rumour mill churned out some more reports which suggested that Samsung has cancelled its plans to launch the S21 FE altogether. It was being said that the launch was cancelled due to high demand for the Galaxy Z-series foldable phones, coupled with the ongoing chip shortage concerns. Now, a new leak claims that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE launch will happen.
Tipster Ice Universe, who has maintained a good record with Samsung-related leaks, claims that the Galaxy S21 FE launch is scheduled to happen later this year. The tipster notes that the device will be launched alongside the Galaxy S22 series in December 2021. If not in December, Samsung will host the launch event in January.
The tipster did not reveal the launch date of the devices. It would be quite odd for Samsung to unveil the S21 FE alongside its next-gen flagship series. However, Google has done something similar in the past with the Pixel 4a 5G launching alongside the Pixel 5 5G.
Samsung has not confirmed any details regarding the S21 FE’s launch or its cancellation. We, therefore, would suggest taking the leaked details with a pinch of salt. A lot about the S21 FE has leaked already.
