Samsung Galaxy S21 FE launch reportedly canceled

Yordan, 27 September 2021

Samsung was expected to bring the affordable flagship Galaxy S21 FE at the August Unpacked event, but it was eventually postponed to a standalone launch in October.

Latest reports from South Korea revealed this is not happening either - the Korean manufacturer has canceled the arrival entirely, citing impressive Galaxy Z Flip3 sales, as well as the chip shortage plaguing the smartphone business in 2021.

Samsung had been preparing an Unpacked event for mid-October, but a company representative has confirmed it is not happening, and the team is reviewing whether the phone would hit the market at all. The Galaxy Z Flip3 is already selling well with a Snapdragon 888 chipset, the very same chipset the Galaxy S21 FE was expected to arrive with.

The uncertainty in the chip production lines is pushing Samsung to make a tough decision which device should get cut - the foldable that is still a jaw-dropping smartphone and a flag-bearer of the company’s capabilities as a technological leader, or the value-for-money leader of the Galaxy S21 lineup.
