A rumored October event to announced the Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition, not iron sadly.) The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was expected to be a less expensive phone modeled off the S21 series. At least based on what they did with the S20 FE.
This might have to do with the global supply chain shortage. Might have to do with better than expected sales of their new lines. It might be because they’re struggling to make the merry go round go faster so that everyone has to hold on tighter just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.
It is odd that the fan editions are scaled back budget versions of the main editions in this timeline. The fan editions should not be a souped-down version of the S21. Spoiler attached and 2 NOS stickers at jaunty angles do not a fan edition make. At least in my opinion.
In the end, it’ll happen, or it won’t. Ddaily’s translation tends to indicate it won’t as it would cut into semiconductor supplies and compete with the Z Flip 3.[ddaily | Android Authority]
