    Even Google’s done waiting for the Galaxy S21 FE to arrive

    It seems like even Google got fed up waiting for the Galaxy S21 FE announcement. Following months of planning and pushbacks, Samsung's next budget-friendly flagship is expected to launch early next month. But its existence has now gotten reconfirmed by Google itself, following the latest update to the ARCore support pages.

    Granted, this isn't the first time we're finding out about upcoming Galaxy devices via ARCore specifications. But the perpetually delayed state of the Galaxy S21 FE makes this leak as unsurprising as they come.

    The ARCore Support Depth API lists the official moniker of the upcoming device as the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition. Meaning there shouldn't be any surprises on the naming front, either.

    Is the Galaxy S21 FE saga finally at its end?

    As to whether you'll be able to pick up the Snapdragon 888 variant of the device or its Exynos 2100 counterpart, that will come down to your specific location. If Samsung's established product practices are any indication, the Exynos version of the Galaxy S21 FE will primarily be split between Europe and Asia. Though not all Eurasian markets are guaranteed to receive it.

    This isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind you. On the contrary, it seems like the objectively superiror variant of the device will be the one utilizing Qualcomm's chipset.

    And speaking of chips, the ongoing silicon shortage is still believed to be the main reason why so many question marks kept surrounding the Galaxy S21 FE this close to its release. It wasn't that long ago that we weren't certain whether we'd even see a direct successor to the Galaxy S20 FE. But all things considered, it seems like Samsung couldn't just ignore the resounding success and immense lasting impact of last year's model.
