Key details about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE smartphone’s India launch date and color variants have surfaced online. The much-awaited Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition) smartphone has been floating around the rumor mill for quite some time now. Aside from that, there have been multiple leaks surrounding the phone’s design and other details. However, Samsung has neither confirmed nor denied these speculations. The South Korean tech company is also mum on its plan to launch the phone in India.
Likewise, Samsung fans have restlessly been waiting to get their hands on the Indian variant of the Galaxy S21 FE smartphone. Much to their chagrin, details about the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE phone’s India launch timeline have been scarce. The much-awaited smartphone was initially tipped to go official in the country sometime in October this year. This was primarily because its predecessor, the Galaxy S20 FE made its debut in October 2020. Now, fresh information about the smartphone’s launch in India and color variants has popped up on the internet.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE India Launch Date & Color Options
The popular smartphone manufacturer is unlikely to hold a dedicated event to announce the Galaxy S21 FE smartphone.
