Galaxy S21 FE 5G is definitely coming soon, but Samsung’s production is not doing well


There has been a lot of talk over the past few months about Samsung’s upcoming Fan Edition device, which many expected to go official alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 5G on August 11. The Galaxy S21 FE 5G would now be up for grabs if this finally turns out to be the case, but due to some unforeseen production challenges, we are still waiting for the oft-leaked handset to be officially announced.

In the meantime, you may be delighted (or at least surprised) to learn that Google has just joined a long list of companies, retailers and operators inadvertently confirming and teasing the imminent arrival of the “Samsung Galaxy S21. Fan Edition “.

Samsung’s latest foldables are a problem for the S21 FE

According to 9To5Google, the search giant mentioned the unreleased phone by its full name on the ARCore yesterday, and although this reference seems to have since been removed, the “damage” is clearly done.
This last confirmation strongly suggests the The Galaxy S21 FE might finally break coverage overnight, but sadly, the handset’s commercial debut is almost certainly still at least a few weeks away.
Of course, there could be a lot of time left for the company to increase production before a pre-order would have started on October 20 and release on October 29, but such a poor first wave of units could mean Samsung has yet to fix what has stuck the S21 Fan Edition so far.
If the company has to choose between following Galloping demand for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 and trying to get the Galaxy S21 FE off the ground seems like a no-brainer. Then again, you must be starting to wonder why Samsung would even bother releasing another iteration of its early 2021 flagships if said model ends up being scheduled just a few months before the Galaxy S22 family.

Is Galaxy S21 FE DOA if it keeps getting delayed?

I said in early 2022 that the family, mind you, could include 6.1- and 6.5-inch limbs with considerably better specs and probably not much higher prices than the 6.4-inch S21 FE 5G.
Powered by a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 888 processor (at least for now) in some areas and an equally fast processor Exynos 2100 SoC in other markets, the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is expected to start at around $ 700 in the US.
It might not be low enough to help the 6.4-inch powerhouse smash our list of best budget 5G phones available in 2021, and with no quick post-launch discounts, it would be hard to recommend the S21 FE over the ‘standard’ Galaxy S21, which recently went on sale for a paltry $ 650 and up.
Along with a fairly large, crisp, and smooth 120Hz Super AMOLED display, this thing is expected to have a rear-facing triple camera system with 32, 12, and 8MP sensors, along with a battery of around 4,400. mAh, up to 8 GB of RAM, and a wide range of attractive colors.
Still, it’s hard to get too excited about a device that just seems too familiar and, well, boring, especially after the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 has turned our proverbial socks upside down with their refined designs and surprisingly decent value for money.
