Confirmed: Galaxy S21 FE launch is planned for CES 2022


Last updated: October 30th, 2021 at 08:34 UTC+02:00

Had Samsung followed a yearly launch schedule for its new Fan Edition smartphones, the Galaxy S21 FE would’ve been official by now. But as we all know, the Galaxy S21 FE missed its opportunity to be revealed at Galaxy Unpacked and Unpacked 2, and recent rumors hint at a January 2022 release.

We’re being told that Samsung wants to release the Galaxy S21 FE in the first month of 2022, much like we reported earlier in October. But the phone won’t be launched on January 11, as another recent rumor had claimed. Instead, we’re hearing that the Galaxy S21 FE will be announced a few days earlier than that.

The Galaxy S21 FE is coming to CES 2022 in January

We’ve been told that Samsung wants to launch the Galaxy S21 FE at CES 2022. The next CES is scheduled for January 5-8, and as usual, it will take place in Las Vegas.

It’s been years since Samsung announced a new smartphone at CES. The event is usually reserved for consumer electronics and mobile products that aren’t always heading for mass production.

With that in mind, the Galaxy S21 FE might not get much competition at CES, and even if Samsung won’t host a big launch event, the upcoming Fan Edition smartphone should still get plenty of spotlight in Las Vegas.

Do keep in mind that preliminary rumors are subject to change, and you can never be too sure about what Samsung is planning until it spills the beans. Things are even more uncertain now given the global semiconductor shortage. But as far as we can tell, as of right now, the Galaxy S21 FE launch at CES 2022 is virtually confirmed.
