Galaxy S21: The future of the Galaxy S21 FE, which is expected to appear as an affordable family member, may be at risk from the chip crisis. According to information from some sources, Samsung has suspended production of the S21 FE due to the chip crisis.
Samsung prepared to release the Galaxy S21 FE, the newest member of the Galaxy S21 series, in the third quarter of 2021. The Galaxy S21 FE, which is expected to come at an affordable price compared to the other models of the series, and is said to be the most affordable flagship ever introduced with the news coming in recent days, will apparently not be able to. its to the prying eyes for a while.
As you know, there is a global crisis that has particularly shaken the automotive and technology sectors; chip crisis. It seems that the Galaxy S21 FE will be the first phone to be hit by the chip crisis, which is said to affect several sectors, such as smartphones, as it has in the auto industry in recent months. According to statements from some sources, Samsung has stopped the production of the Galaxy S21 FE.
Orders to delivery partners cancelled:
In FrontTron’s post on Twitter, based on the news from etnews, the news that Samsung suddenly stopped production of the Galaxy S21 FE was confirmed by industry sources. Accordingly, on June 11, Samsung informed its supply partners that the production of the Galaxy S21 FE was suspended and canceled the orders. Samsung also asked for information about the stock in circulation or in production.
The cause of the situation is said to be Samsung’s transfer of processors to foldable phones. The inability to find enough semiconductors naturally results in the cessation of production of the Galaxy S21 FE.
There is no confirmation from Samsung on the matter yet, but looking at the general situation of the industry and the deepening chip crisis, the situation does not seem very unlikely. It is possible that the S21 FE will go into production after the crisis is resolved, but it seems that events will cause the phone to arrive with a significant delay.
