Rumors are flowing in that the upcoming Galaxy S21 FE production is halted because of the ongoing chip shortage around the globe. The Galaxy S21 FE was set to launch in the month of August this year. A deleted post from ETNews stated that Samsung is redirecting its entire stock of the Snapdragon 888 towards the upcoming Fold 3 series.
The now-deleted article says the following:
Samsung has allocated Qualcomm APs [application processors – ed] to foldable phones and suspended the FE model because there is not enough semiconductors. After getting approval for mass production, each company started production, but there was an unprecedented issue of stopping.
Ice Universe also claims that the reason for this step was the battery. The battery might have not passed the QA, also mentioning the fact that there is no chip shortage or shifting of technology to other production line going on inside Samsung.
Meanwhile in a statement stated by Samsung to Bloomberg, Samsung mentions that there is no such decision has been taken since the device is not announced or released yet.
While we cannot discuss details of the unreleased product, nothing has been determined regarding the alleged production suspension
