they posponed it because s20 fe units are sold like pancakes,this proves that the 500$ price point is the best price point that vast majority of consumers would like to pay. if they realease s21 fe all the s21 lineup wouldnt sell.

        Duck of death, 25 Jun 2021When did the S20 FE launch? Wasn't that October, too? ... moreLate September

          Didn't realise they were classing the FE's as 'Flagship' handsets now?!
          I thought the whole point of them was, whilst well spec'd, to be a cheaper alternative to the 'Flagship' phones...

          I could be wrong though...

              Better term would be extraction of silicon. The sand need to be rich in sio2
              BTW during lockdown the factories stopped prossesing purification of silicon stopped and chip manufactured also closed factories. so, no new production of chipset
              The phone makers used the stock left
              Now, when they did start producing pure silicon,and chipset there is a heavy competition.

                        Samsung semiconductor does need raw materials,and it doesn't mine them.
                        BTW can't deny the fact that samsung is more greedier than Apple.

                            The bigger the chip the more raw material.
                            So, Chinese phones used too many chips and all chips need semiconductors.
                            And its not like sd 888 is made of plastic. It is also a semiconductor made.

                                  The chinese brands have consumed too much of chipsets launching phones every week ,what do you expect?

                                    When did the S20 FE launch? Wasn't that October, too? Have Samsung ever said they'd move that back to August or was that all gadget bloggers creating rumours?

                                      Is it true that there won't be a Note series phone this year?

                                        I missed two flagships from samsung and that are s9 and s10 series. Please make s21 fe just a rebranded s10+ and a few more goodies like faster cbarging, bigger battery and only change 2x cam on s10+ by 3x one and i woll definitely buy it. (Not that i wont buy it now but it would have been a lot better)
