Internet sources report that Samsung is forced to revise its plans to release the Galaxy S21 FE smartphone. The reason lies in the global shortage of microchips, which hit various sectors of the IT market hard.
Samsung was originally planning to launch the Galaxy S21 FE in August alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, both equipped with a flexible display. However, according to some recent reports, the release of the Galaxy S21 FE has been postponed to the fall.
According to reports, the smartphone will hit the market only in October. Moreover, the geography of sales of the device will be limited. At first, only residents of Europe and North America will be able to purchase the device.
It is worth mentioning that due to the lack of microchips, Samsung is likely to have to reduce the initial shipments of the Galaxy S21 FE. Thus, the demand for the device may exceed the supply.
According to rumors, the smartphone will have a 6.5-inch FHD+ S-AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Snapdragon 888 processor, 6/8 GB of RAM and a flash drive with a capacity of 128/256 GB. The device will include a 32-megapixel front camera and a rear camera with three 12-megapixel sensors. Power will be provided by a rechargeable battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh with a 25-W charge.
