Recently, Korean media revealed that Samsung will not launch the Galaxy S21 FE globally, while its availability may be limited to the US and European markets. Meanwhile, it looks like the report from South Korea is not completely correct as the latest one suggests S21 FE’s availability in one more market.
According to Japanese media, NTT DoCoMo’s fall lineup of new smartphones will include the Galaxy S21 FE. If this report is current, then the upcoming affordable flagship device will be available in yet another market, Japan, other than the US and Europe.
Previously, it was rumored that the Korean tech giant will unveil its new Galaxy S21 FE phone alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in August 2021. However, the company has changed its strategy as the launching of an affordable flagship could affect the new foldables.
Instead of August, Samsung is now expected to introduce the Galaxy S21 FE later this year, most probably in October. Just like its predecessor, the upcoming FE variant will ship both Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 SoC in different markets.
As of now, we don’t have such authentic information regarding the launch timeline of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. Meanwhile, it’s expected that the company will make some announcement about the upcoming products of this year.
Galaxy S21 FE Specs [Expected]
Previous reports suggest that the Galaxy S21 FE will come with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will be packed with a 4,370mAh battery, could follow the Galaxy S21 series-like processor strategy, and is rumored to cost around $610.
