Samsung should think that the price of flipping and folding mobiles are high and s21 FE's price is low they can't compare flipping and folding mobile with this S21 FE. There is huge difference between both mobile they should bring S21 FE. The S21 FE also compete with oneplus mobiles so they should definitely lunch the mobile and also the FE edition is for fans of Samsung.

Folding and flipping phones are as durable as ice cream in hotr summer.
Dont know anyone who will like more folding or flipping phone over the bar one.
In my country here in Slovakia i own a company with 40 stores across my country where we sell phones from like 50 brands and plenty of accesorize.
Since release of first folding phone back in 2018 or so only 2 were sold.
Reason is simple noone wants costly gimmick which coompletely breaks on even a tiny drop.
With averge salary of 800 euros per month and average costs for living per single person about 400 noone will ever buy thus costly gimmick not worth any coin and impression to have.

No brand new just released samsung phone with SD8XX chip has been ever released or sold under 700 bucks no matter what.
Compared to Xiaomi where Pocophone were sold for less than 350 bucks and many else successors follow same trend.

LoL nice joke.
Only clzumsy people would believe that a folding fragile super expensive device will sell a lot better than a clasical bar phone with a flagship specs.
Nice lies Samsung but what to expect from company like you right???

Chip shortage is inevitable as it affects the whole electronic industry, but better-than-expected sales of Galaxy Z Flip3? Give me the choice between an S20 FE or the Z Flip3, and I'd take the former all day long. If I want to own a vertical folding screen flip smartphone, the Z Flip3 won't be my choice. That goes to the Motorola RAZR 5G.

It was not going to have microsd Card slot, so I wasn't going a buy it anyway.

There number of people who actually need it is so diminishing small it's irrelevant. The number of people who needs the software security of a root protected phone is massive. Basically anyone with normal consumer habits anyone with valuable data. So, trying to argue that root is more important than having a phone guaranteed to be free from Beijing remote controls is nonsense. Xiaomi will be banned from trading in the EU by the end of the year.

The best thing they could do is at least put a SD870 in it seems it plenty available and is the best chipset this year due to the over heating issues of the 888.

Apart from the bad name the S20 FE Exynos variant got, The bad sales of over priced BS S series is one of the main reasons.... I mostly used to compare my S20 FE with the S20 Plus and apart from built quality there was no difference even Cameras results were too similar and upto the mark, watching this who in their right mind would pay such high price for the S series lol.... but just look at the crap they are giving us for not launching the S21 FE lol

Was also considering the A52S, but that is a tad bit plasticity. All thanks to Google for keeping the Pixel away and inaccessible!

The only thing I miss is the S20 FEs camera, you hardly get that in that price range.

The idea of S20 FE was amazing and even the design and specs on the book were too good. But All the Exynos variant users (including me) were extremely dissapointed by its third class performance and over heating issues plus the worst battery timing ever....
I believe that Samsung actually knows that the S21 FE sales will definitely be affected by the bad S20 FE experiences only thats why they are re-considering its launch.

It's a UK model, though I've heard it's mostly US models running on AT&T's network that have it truly locked.
