  • Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to launch in January 2022.
  • The launch of the phone will take place only in the European markets.
  • The launch of S21 FE has pushed Samsung’s S22 series to February 2022.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S21 FE during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 in January. The phone has seen several delays in the launch with the company even contemplating on cancelling the device.

According to a report in Gizmochina, the phone will only be launched in Europe. Initially, the launch was to take place in the United States as well, but the company has now changed its plans.

The Galaxy S21 FE will be missed in India as the country saw its predecessor Galaxy S20 FE fare well in the country. It was one of the hot-selling phones during the recently concluded Amazon’s Great Indian Festival across the country, with the online retailer calling it the “biggest deal” during the sale.

One of the reasons for Samsung Galaxy S20 FE success was its timely launch in September last year. Ever since then, the phone has had a good number of buyers in India. With the delay in the launch of S21 FE, it will be interesting to see how it fares in the European market.

To launch this device, Samsung has also delayed the launch of Galaxy S22 series until February. The South Korean company’s next flagship series is expected to launch on February 8 and will go on sale from February 18.


In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to feature a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is expected to be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or the Exynos 2100 chipset. With the device launch as late as January next year, it already has plenty of competitors in the market with similar specs.

As for storage, it will have two variants — 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. It is expected to feature a 4,380mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. The phone is likely to cost under $600 in the European market but we will know for sure once it launches in January.

However, the Indian users would be disappointed as they will not be able to get their hands on the device. At the moment, there is no information from the company about the device.
