What Else is Samsung Working On?
In other Samsung related news, earlier this month, a report from Phone Arena suggested that the Galaxy S21 FE was already in mass production.
Now, a new report from a South Korean publication, Daily suggests that the company has dropped its plan to launch the Galaxy S21 FE. The current chip supply crisis has affected several companies, including chip foundry TSMC and chip giant Intel.
Samsung has had to drop its plan to launch what could have been 2021’s Galaxy Note 21. Regrettably, now the company might have to cancel the Galaxy S21 FE for the sake of Galaxy Z Flip 3.
However, a Samsung spokesperson claims that it was originally slated to take place in mid-October. Earlier this month, a report indicated that Samsung manufactured just ten thousand units of upcoming smartphones in September.
Noted tipster Max Jambor pointed out that manufacturers start mass production five or six months ahead of the launch. However, Samsung isn’t able to do it due to a chipset shortage.
