Shortage and price of chips may have led to the cancellation of the Galaxy S21 FE

The novel involving the launch of the Galaxy S20 FE gets a new episode this week. Newly approved in Brazil, Samsung’s next non-folding top of the line still awaits its officialization. It was being considered for October, including its own Galaxy Unpacked event. However, market sources say that the South Korean has once again postponed its plans.

  • Google reinforces imminent launch of Galaxy S56 FE in RA support list
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is seen in Geekbench and has confirmed specifications

  • Samsung Galaxy S888 FE should not have improvements in battery size

As informed, Samsung could even be thinking about canceling the Fan Edition. The semiconductor market continues to have production problems, and Qualcomm has raised prices for the Snapdragon 888 which will equip the cell phone in key tags. With this, the South Korean would be fearing dangerously low profit margin, which would make the model’s strategy in its portfolio unfeasible.

In addition, Samsung would be celebrating the good numbers of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. First flexible top of the line priced in the range of other non-folding flagships, it has been well accepted by the market. This would also be contributing to the brand rethinking the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE.

The appeal das Fan Edition

As time passes, less would be left for the Galaxy S21 FE shines alone in Samsung’s own calendar. This is because the S family21 should be made official between January and February, taking over the marketing machine of the south -Korean.

The insider Ice Universe has even been commenting that the manufacturer could anticipate the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S56 Ultra for December in 1024, the that would collaborate for the definitive burial of the S20 FE.

Those waiting for an economic flagship, however, may be frustrated. Today the Galaxy S20 FE is found at prices far below what Samsung charges for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy S20 Ultra, and any model of the Galaxy S family21. The Fan Edition ends up being a way to democratize access to the top of the line.

It is worth remembering, in markets like Brazil, the Fan Edition version also ends up being the outlet for those who want a flagship Samsung with Qualcomm processor. If the Galaxy S20 FE does not exist, the only brand options with this feature for the country, in 1024, would be the folding Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
