UPDATE (September 1st, 2021):
There is a new report claiming that Samsung has delayed the Galaxy S21 FE launch once again. The Elec, a South Korean publication, has mentioned that the company will start manufacturing the budget flagship in September i.e. this month itself. It means the launch will likely happen during the fourth quarter of the year.
In a separate leak, the Galaxy S21 FE user manual has surfaced and shared by SamMobile. It reveals a number of features like a high-refresh-rate display, in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, IP68 rating for dust/water resistance, and a design same as the premium Galaxy S21 flagship. However, there is no microSD card support available on the smartphone.

There has been a lot of discrepancy in leaks when it comes to Samsung's launch plans for the Galaxy S21 FE. Some claimed that the affordable version of the flagship will arrive alongside the new foldable devices and some are tipped to happen around October. A few even claimed that the launch might not happen at all but thanks to a fresh leak, it seems like we are really close to the official release.
As per Mauri QHD, a Twitter-based tipster, Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy S21 FE on September 8th. It means we are just 10 days away from the release. His source claims to have received the information through one of the Samsung representatives. However, the tipster has added that he would still like to wait and see if this turns out to be true.

this source is right often, but i can never share those leaks (too risky)this is one of those rare ones that i actually can.
he got it from a Sammy representative like usual,but says that personally he would wait to see🧂
im not 1st but since it comes from Sammy..
One good reason to believe that the Galaxy S21 FE launch is actually closer is that the phone's reference has been found alongside the Galaxy S21 in the store. The exact location of the store is unknown but considering the tipster, Max Weinbach is from the United States, we can assume the store from there as well.
