The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE seems to be the toughest nut to crack in the tech industry as of now, with reports suggesting everything, from a cancellation to a January launch.
There is ample evidence to suggest that the device is indeed real, with Samsung supposedly having planned an October launch, but later deciding against the same.
When is Samsung Going to Launch the S21 FE?
Now, we keep hearing that the device may be cancelled in order to avoid a clash with the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, which is due to launch in the coming months. However, it seems that this might not be so, as SamMobile have some news in relation to the device.
SamMobile suggests that Samsung is aiming for a January launch for the Galaxy S21 FE, with a rather subtle launch, which may not even be in the form of an event, with a press release doing the job.
The publication mentions that it is unlikely that Samsung will launch both devices at the same time, with a gap between the two launches seemingly the best decision. Furthermore, the S21 FE seems likely to have limited availability at launch, with only a few countries getting the device in January.
