The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE launch saga has been ongoing for months now. The gadget was first alleged to launch in August, but it surely was postponed resulting from chip scarcity. It was prompt to reach in October, however the newest report prompt that received’t occur. That report additionally prompt that the gadget could not launch in any respect, although the Galaxy S21 FE did appear on FCC as soon as once more. That itemizing does probably not assure something, although.
FCC hints that the Galaxy S21 FE could launch in any case, but it surely’s removed from a assure
A brand new Galaxy S21 FE itemizing popped up on the FCC, the SM-G990E mannequin appeared. Now, this isn’t the primary time the S21 FE appeared on the FCC, the identical occurred some time again.
This new itemizing does form of recommend that the gadget remains to be in Samsung’s plans, although it’s not a assure. In contrast to the earlier mannequin, that is an Exynos-powered unit, allegedly. The opposite one was a Snapdragon mannequin.
The brand new paperwork recommend that this gadget is coming, or was alleged to be coming, with a 25W EP-TA800 journey adapter a knowledge cable, and a pair of earbuds.
Now, do notice that this doesn’t assure that the cellphone will launch, although. This itemizing is just not precisely the latest, because it appeared on the FCC at first of final month, but it surely wasn’t noticed till now.
It’s nonetheless extra possible that the gadget received’t arrive in any respect
That makes the report concerning the potential cancellation of the Galaxy S21 FE potential. A Samsung official confirmed that the gadget is not going to launch in October, and hinted that it could not launch in any respect.
Samsung is at present debating whether or not to launch the gadget in any respect. It’s already late, and the corporate nonetheless can’t assure it would have sufficient chips to fulfill the demand. On high of that, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has been performing extraordinarily properly for Samsung. So, the corporate is contemplating utilizing these chips for the Z Flip 3 as a substitute.
The Galaxy S22 collection is allegedly coming in January, so this resolution does make sense. Launching a “flagship killer” a month earlier than your next-gen flagships arrive might not be one of the best concept. Contemplating that the October occasion has been cancelled, we presume that the Galaxy S21 FE could launch in November, or Samsung could reschedule the October occasion. In both case, it appears a bit late to launch this smartphone. We’ll see what’s going to Samsung resolve, although.
