Samsung has scheduled an event for October 20 and there are more and more assumptions about what it will have to present, given that all of its flagships have already been launched. One of these assumptions is that the long-awaited Galaxy S21 FE will be unveiled that day. Now sources say that the phone will not arrive until January 2022. It is not the first time we hear that the Galaxy S21 FE will be launched next year, but, following Samsung’s announcement of a Galaxy Unpacked Part 2, there are those who hope the phone will be announced at the event.
A tweet from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, says that the Galaxy S21 FE new week will not be released and will not be delivered until the end of October. This is due to the fact that mass production for the phone will only start in December, so it will be ready for the launch date of January 2022.
The possible launch in January was also confirmed by Jon Prosser and Max Weinbach. Jon even specifically mentions that the release date is January 11, 2022.
Galaxy S21 FE is a more affordable version of the Galaxy S21. It is the successor to the Galaxy S20 FE that was launched last year. The phone will have a Snapdragon 888 processor that powers it, but there will probably be a version with Exynos on board, if we look at a Geekbench list.
The phone will also have a 1080p AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a hole for a 32MP camera. There will be triple rooms on the back. If it was released this year, it would have to get Android 11 out of the box, but with the launch in January, Android 12 could be pre-installed on this device.
