  • Samsung is said to have suspended production of the Galaxy S21 FE due to a component shortage.
  • The Galaxy S21 FE was previously expected to debut alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 in August.

Some reports out of South Korea are now suggesting that Samsung has suspended production of the Galaxy S20 FE successor due to a battery shortage. A few other reports blame the move on a chip shortage.

According to a since-deleted report from ETNews, Samsung has decided to cancel the Galaxy S21 FE altogether due to a shortage of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chips. Samsung leaker Ice Universe, however, claims the company has only temporarily halted production of the S21 FE due to a battery shortage.

As reported by SamMobile, Galaxy S21 FE's primary battery supplier, LG Energy Solutions, is currently dealing with a few production issues. The secondary supplier, Samsung SDI, is yet to start producing batteries for the upcoming value flagship.

In a statement sent to Bloomberg, Samsung said:

While we cannot discuss details of the unreleased product, nothing has been determined regarding the alleged production suspension.

The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to arrive with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and the same 120Hz refresh rate as the best Android phones. It is also tipped to feature a Snapdragon 888 chipset, triple 12MP cameras, Wi-Fi 6 support, and a 4,500mAh battery.

Android Central has reached out to Samsung and is awaiting comment.
