Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, the alleged handset from the South Korean smartphone maker has been in the news for quite some time now. Samsung was earlier speculated to unveil the much-awaited Galaxy S20 FE at the Galaxy Unpacked Part 2 2021 event to be held on October 21. Now, multiple leaks suggest that the handset will be launched in January next year. The new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be the successor to the Galaxy S20 FE which was unveiled in September last year.
Several tipsters took to Twitter to leak the launch date. Ross Young (@DSCCRoss), Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach), and John Prosser (@jon_prosser) tweeted saying that the Galaxy S21 will launch in January. According to John Prosser, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be unveiled on January 11, 2022, which Weinbach also confirmed in the comments of the tweet. Since there is no confirmation from the company yet, this information should still be treated with a pinch of salt.
As far as I know, Samsung’s S21 FE is delayed until January.
The launch has been rescheduled for January 11, 2022.
