The same day the Samsung Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G and A72 were revealed at a Samsung Unpacked event, a leaked mini-roadmap alleges that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will launch at a similar event in August.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition) is the rumored follow-up to last years Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, which was a more affordable version of that years flagship phones released later in the year in October 2020.
But according to this mini-roadmap, which was publicized by noted leaker Evan Blass in a Voice post
, means wed be seeing the S21 FE a lot earlier in the year than its predecessor.
Mini Samsung roadmap shows S21 FE, and not Note, Unpacked event in August: https://t.co/vcUFS4JVd6March 17, 2021
Why would the S21 FEs release window be moved up several months? Possibly because Samsungs CEO heavily implied
that the next Samsung Galaxy Note 21 will be delayed until 2022, leaving a gap in the companys launch lineup. Since Note phones typically drop in August, Blasss roadmap suggests the Samsung S21 FE will replace it on August 19, if the leak is accurate.
Blasss mini-roadmap offered potential release dates for other products launching this year. Most notably, it predicts an Unpacked event dedicated to PCs, which likely refer to more Chrome-powered Galaxy Chromebooks and/or Windows-running Galaxy Book laptops, will happen on April 14.
The roadmap also anticipates an affordable Galaxy Tab S7 Lite launch at some point in June, along with a follow-up to the cheaper Samsung Galaxy A21 phones the Galaxy A22 and Galaxy A22 5G in July.
Finally, Blass claimed that another phone that wasnt on the roadmap is also slated to come out this year: the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G, a follow-up to the 2019 Galaxy A80 phone that used the same cameras for rear and front-facing shots with an ingenious flip-system. Weve heard rumors
this is coming, so its nice to hear support for it.
