So many tech leakers and journalists have suggested the Samsung Galaxy Note 21 isn’t coming – even Samsung is sure it’s canceled – and now some more light has been shed on the situation. .
According to Vipul Leaker Evan BlassThe anticipated Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will not actually replace the Galaxy S20 FE from 2020, but will instead serve as an upgrade over the Galaxy Note 20.

What Blass shared is the gist of it: While the company’s flagship line-up for 2020 consisted of the Galaxy S20 series, S20 FE and Note 20, the 2021 line-up includes the Galaxy S21 family, the S20 FE again and S21 FE included.
It’s strange that the Galaxy S20 FE is still on the list for 2021 – perhaps Samsung will cut the price to keep it competitive even though it’s older.

S21 FE is not a note
So what is Blass suggesting here? Will the Galaxy S21 FE come with a stylus and lots of productivity features? Well, while we can’t say for sure right now, it doesn’t seem likely.
Instead, we’d imagine it simply means that the Galaxy S21 FE will launch at a big Samsung Unpacked event in August (when we’d otherwise see the Note) as the company’s big flagship of late in the year.
We’ve heard this gel with rumours, which suggested that the S21 FE would launch alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 sometime in August. Maybe the Galaxy Tab S8 too.
If you’ve been waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 21 – and somehow your hopes weren’t dampened by a flood of similar rumors – we’re sorry to say that, at this point, its existence is pretty much impossible. Hopefully you’ll like the Galaxy S21 FE instead.
