Hot on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is about to launch, as Samsung is holding an event on October 20.
smartphone maker posted a video on twitter Teasing ‘Unpacked Part 2’, and while the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE isn’t mentioned by name, it’s our best guess at what we can see out there.
This phone has been rumored for centuries and the name has even been seen on Samsung websites, so we know this is something the company was working on. It is also rumored that the phone will land in October, so that’s all the line up.

Again, we can’t be sure, as a Samsung official reportedly said that the phone’s planned launch was cancelled, while mentions on the official support pages have been removed, all suggesting There are rumors that the phone itself may have been canceled or at least delayed, with a more recent leak pointing to a January launch.
So what else can we see if not the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE? Well, the teaser video itself shows various Samsung app icons like Samsung Health, Samsung SmartThings, and Music, Video, and Camera apps.
So it is possible that this announcement is software rather than hardware centric. We’re not sure what might be involved. Maybe Samsung is rolling out a new version of the One UI interface that sticks on top of Android, but we don’t think it’ll hold an entire event just for that.
So we think some sort of hardware is likely to be present, and the obvious choice in that case is the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.
Analysis: It’s going to be a busy week
It’s a busy time in the phone world, as not only is Samsung unveiling a new handset, but the Google Pixel 6 range in its entirety is being unveiled on October 19, so just a day before. In which both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are included.
And a day before that Apple is organizing an event. It’s likely to be for MacBooks and AirPods rather than anything smartphone-related, but it still makes for a surprisingly busy week in the tech calendar, especially later this year.
