Samsung's S21 FE reportedly canceled due to Flip3's higher sales
Samsung was expected to launch the Galaxy S21 FE in October. However, according to DDaily, the company has canceled the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event for the S21 FE. The tech giant is witnessing higher than expected sales for the Flip3 and to meet that demand in the midst of global chip shortage, it has shelved the S21 FE. However, an official statement is awaited.

It will draw power from a Snapdragon 888 chipset
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will be powered by a Snapdragon 888/Exynos 2100 chipset, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. It will boot Android 11 with One UI skin on top and pack a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast-charging support. For connectivity, the device will offer support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, and a Type-C port.
