    Sad Pikachu: No new Note or S21 Fan Edition is coming at Unpacked

    Samsung may be going all in on its foldable offerings, but there's no denying the fact that more people are interested in seeing a new Note flagship and the Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition). But, as has been made abundantly clear, Samsung isn't launching a new Galaxy Note smartphone at all this year. The Note lineup isn't dead, but Samsung has decided the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 are what it will focus on for the second half of 2021, no doubt as part of its push to bring foldable phones into the mainstream.

    August 11's Galaxy Unpacked launch is going to be all about Samsung's new foldables

    The Galaxy S21 FE, on the other hand, is said to still be on track for a release sometime this year. But will it be unveiled at next month's Galaxy Unpacked event? The answer to that question, according to rumors and our own sources, has been a firm no, and that's being reiterated today in a report by the folks over at LetsGoDigital, who claim to have seen Samsung documentation “stating that the Galaxy S21 FE will not be introduced during the Galaxy Unpacked event.”

    This is just another reminder that anyone expecting to see the sequel to last year's massively popular Galaxy S20 FE at next month's Unpacked is going to be sorely disappointed. October is when the Galaxy S21 FE is expected to go official, though with the ongoing global chip shortage, it's possible Samsung will further delay what should be its next ‘flagship-killer' handset. Hopefully, we will find out more about the company's plans for the Galaxy S21 FE in the coming weeks.

    Whenever the Galaxy S21 FE does arrive, it's expected to offer most Galaxy S21 series features at a more attractive price. It may even surpass the original three Galaxy S21 models in some ways, like having faster charging speeds and possibly microSD expansion. It will likely miss out on some features as well, and we made predictions on what those might be that you might want to check out.
