Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for August 11 at 2 PM GMT. Samsung is expected to unveil a lot of products in that event such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, Galaxy S21 FE, and the Galaxy Watch series devices.
The latest report we got is that Samsung won’t launch the Galaxy S21 FE in that event. This information was revealed by LetsGoDigital, who claim to have seen Samsung documentation “stating that the Galaxy S21 FE will not be introduced during the Galaxy Unpacked event.”
It doesn’t mean that the phone won’t be launched though, the launch might still happen later this year. It will be quite disappointing to Samsung fans as they were highly expecting the S21 FE.
In case there are people expecting the Galaxy Note series, you will be disappointed too.
Samsung’s co-CEO of IT and Mobile Communications division, DJ Koh, confirmed during Samsung’s 52nd annual shareholder’s meeting earlier this year that the company will launch a new Galaxy Note smartphone next year.
So as the Samsung August 2021 Unpacked event is fast approaching, don’t expect to see the S21 FE and the Note 21 series. The Galaxy Note 21 series will be launched next year while the Galaxy S21 FE launch is expected this year.
