The Galaxy S21 FE was originally expected to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in August. However, Samsung had to reportedly delay its announcement due to some supply chain issues. Some reports had even claimed that the phone could be canceled due to the ongoing chip shortage. However, a new report claims to reveal the Galaxy S21 FE launch date.
According to tipster Mauri QHD, Samsung could finally unveil the Galaxy S21 FE on September 8, 2021. The tipster claims that the information comes from a trusted source who got the information from a Samsung representative. If this information is correct, the phone could go on pre-order in mid-September and go on sale before the end of the month. Last month, Samsung had accidentally leaked the phone’s image, and it recently put up the device’s name in some stores.
