Samsung's Galaxy S21 FE is undoubtedly one of the longest rumored smartphones of the year. While the rumor mill has been consistent about specs and features, it is the launch timeline and plans keep getting changed. Ideally, the phone should have gone official by now but there have been multiple delays. The most recent report even claimed that launch plans have been canceled altogether but a new leak has emerged suggesting otherwise.
As per SamMobile, Samsung is now planning to unveil the Galaxy S21 FE during CES 2022. It is an annual tech show that takes place in Las Vegas and the next edition is set to be held from January 5th to 8th. It is important to note that it has been a long time since the South Korean tech giant unveiled a smartphone at the event. It usually uses it to showcase products from other categories like smart TVs and laptops/notebooks.
The report further adds that even though it makes sense for the company to announce the phone at the event, there is nothing set in stone yet. The plans can always change and we might hear a new release timeline as time will pass. This is not surprising considering the smartphone industry is also facing heat from chip supply shortage.
