Galaxy S21 FE could have a “paper” launch, with only 10,000 units available globally

Confirmed since August by the premature listing on the Samsung France website, Galaxy S21 FE has not yet seen the light of day. And now we find out why.

According to industry sources, the South Korean manufacturer is fully aware of the effects of the semiconductor crisis, reallocating available resources to top products with high profit margins (eg Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Flip 3 and Galaxy S21). Apparently, the success of the FE series and the huge sales potential of the Galaxy S21 FE model give emotions to Samsung, the company wanting to avoid frustrating consumers with a launch without enough stocks in stores. However, the strategy of postponing the launch event only works to a point, beyond which impatient customers begin to be lost (for a generation or more) to rival manufacturers.

So we can expect that Samsung to launch Galaxy S21 FE in the next 5-6 six weeks, with or without enough stock of phones. We also find out from sources that Samsung would have produced only about 10,000 S21 FE units, the remaining time not being enough for the accumulation of sufficient stocks for the global launch. Thus, the available stocks would be distributed only to selected markets in Europe and the USA. Even if production will increase in the weeks after launch, Galaxy S21 FE stocks will most likely be insufficient until the first part of next year.

According to the preliminary list of specifications, Galaxy S21 FE will have a 6.41 ”AMOLED screen at 120 Hz and a 32MP front camera. The main camera could use a triple-camera configuration of 12MP + 12MP + 8MP.

Depending on the region, the configuration will be based on the Snapdragon 888 chipset, or the Exynos model with equivalent performance.

The phone will be delivered in two variants, with 128 GB / 256 GB memory and 4500 mAh battery. However, both versions will have only 6GB of RAM, this being the main distinguishing element compared to the top Galaxy S21 model.
