    Samsung was expected to launch three new smartphones—Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Galaxy Z Fold 3—in August 2021. However, it appears that the Galaxy S21 FE launch may be delayed by a couple of months. Multiple reports are hinting towards critical component shortage as the reason for the delayed launch.

    Galaxy S21 FE launch may be delayed by 1-2 months

    According to multiple reports coming out of South Korea, Samsung had to stop the production of the Galaxy S21 FE due to battery shortage. The primary supplier for the Galaxy S21 FE's battery was LG Energy Solutions, and it had a few production issues on its end. Samsung SDI was added as the secondary supplier, but it is delaying the production approval. Some reports had claimed that the delay in the smartphone's launch was due to the shortage of the 5nm Snapdragon 888 chips.

    Bloomberg reached out to Samsung Electronics regarding the reports of a delayed Galaxy S21 FE launch, and the company said, “While we cannot discuss details of the unreleased product, nothing has been determined regarding the alleged production suspension.” It is also rumored that Samsung will launch a new color for the Galaxy S21+: Phantom Green. More color options could be launched for the Galaxy S21 series after the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

    Galaxy S21 FE specs

    The Galaxy S21 FE's design, color options, and possible pricing were leaked a few days ago. The smartphone is expected to feature a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and an under-display fingerprint reader. The device reportedly uses the Snapdragon 888 chip, 6GB/8GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage.

    It could feature a 32MP selfie camera and a 12MP+12MP+12MP triple-camera setup. Other Galaxy S21 specs include stereo speakers, an IP68 rating, GPS, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and a USB Type-C port. It is powered by a 4,500mAh battery, which supports up to 25W fast charging. It could also feature fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
