Aside from foldables, Samsung is also preparing to unveil the next Fan Edition smartphone of its latest Galaxy flagships. Starting this year, the company had introduced the Galaxy S21 series, and as per the last year’s statement, it will launch the Galaxy S21 FE this year.
Recently, some rumors claimed that Samsung halted the production of the Galaxy S21 FE due to (AP) chip shortage and other parts supply issues. Later on, LiveMint reported that the company has not yet decided to stop the production of its upcoming affordable smartphone.
Meanwhile, it looks like the South Korean tech giant has not stopped the Galaxy S21 FE’s production due to supply issues as the Korean media report suggests that the company would postpone its launch to focus on selling the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
According to Yonhap News, Samsung delayed the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE to late September or later as it wants to focus on the marketing of its next-generation foldable phones and not distract consumer attention by launching an affordable+flagship bar-shaped smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and S23 Ultra design compared in live images
Samsung is expected to hold the next Unpacked event in January next year. After leaked hands-on, new live images of the Galaxy S24 Ultra have surfaced, showing off design changes over its predecessor.
In the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung is not heavily tweaking the overall look and design. While the display is ditching curved edges, the rear design looks a lot identical to the S23 Ultra, which is hard to compare.
As you can see in the image showing the phone’s bottom, the speaker grille has ditched the holes in favor of a single linear cutout. The company has also flattened out the bottom of the S Pen.
Notably, the Galaxy S24 Ultra makes use of a titanium frame instead of aluminum, while other models follow the older frame strategy.
Galaxy S25 Design: Samsung is rumored to be redefining Galaxy image
With the S22 Ultra, Samsung introduced an island-less rear panel design, which became Galaxy’s signature design in 2023. All Galaxy phones released in 2023 follow the same design strategy, with the same set to happen next year with the Galaxy S24 series.
Well, a new rumor says that Samsung is set to redefine the Galaxy image, with notable design changes expected to be made in Galaxy S25. Tipster Revegnus says that Hubert H. Lee, a former designer at Mercedes-Benz, is working to redefine the design language of Galaxy, starting with the S25.
To recall, Hubert H. Lee has been leading Samsung’s Galaxy design department (Head of the Mobile eXperience Design Team) since December 2022. The company’s OLED 2.0 tech is expected to bring a significant upgrade to the Galaxy’s innovation journey!
Apple’s under display camera iPhone to arrive when Samsung’s UPC ages 5 years!
Apple completely ditched the display notch with the iPhone 15 lineup this year. Well, Apple is expected to launch iPhone with under-display camera technology after 2026. The company’s camera supplier has reportedly begun the development of under panel camera.
TheElec sources say that LG Innotek was found to have begun advanced development of UPC. The company is developing a special lens called the “Freeform Optic” lens to overcome the limitations of the existing under-panel camera tech – insufficient light quantity.
It is reported that Apple received under-display camera samples for iPhone from related companies but evaluated its performance as unsatisfactory. However, the US tech giant plans to apply Underpanel Face ID to the front of the iPhone before applying UPC.
By applying a freeform lens, the thickness of the peripheral lens can be controlled, thereby reducing the aberration of the optical system and optical module and increasing the light ratio around the optical system and optical module, the image quality of the area can be improved.
It’s worth noting that Samsung has been applying UPC to the internal screen of the Galaxy Z Fold series since 2021. The camera specifications are still low, with the UPC applied to last year’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 and this year’s Z Fold 5 limited to 4-megapixel.
