A promotional image of the phone was leaked last month. According to it, it seems that Samsung will unveil this product at the same time as the reopening of schools and universities. There were also reports of the phone being introduced in mid-October. But this event has been completely canceled and the future of the phone itself is in a haze.
According to the leaked information, the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition was supposed to be launched with the Snapdragon 888, which apparently The chipset is largely scarce due to high demand and low supply. In addition, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 are based on the same chip, which Samsung will undoubtedly receive more profit from selling than the S21 Fan Edition.
Although it is said that Samsung has also prepared a version of the Exynos Galaxy S21 fan edition, but the lack of parts is not the only problem of this phone. The Galaxy S22 series phones will be introduced in just a few months, and Samsung certainly does not want to do anything to affect the sales of this phone.
It was announced some time ago that Samsung has produced about 10,000 units of the S21 fan edition. However, considering that Samsung has apparently abandoned this product, it is not clear what decision will be made for these manufactured phones.
