A Samsung device with model number SM-G990B2 was spotted at the Bluetooth SIG certification site recently. The listing reveals that it will be called the Galaxy S21 FE. Its support page is also available on Samsung Netherlands’ website, which indicates that it is an upcoming device. Some retailer listings revealed that it could be a 4G version of the Galaxy S21 FE powered by the Snapdragon 720G. However, it has been found now that it is not a 4G device. Rather, it could be a new variant of the Galaxy S21 FE 5G.
The SM-G990B2 device is now listed in the database of Google-supported devices. The listing confirms that its marketing name is Galaxy S21 FE 5G. It should be noted that it is a 5G device and not a 4G model, as was speculated before.
The SM-G990B2 still seems to be an upcoming variant of the Galaxy S21 FE 5G. It is advisable to wait for further reports to know whether it is the existing Galaxy S21 FE 5G device or a new variant, which is expected to release in markets like Netherlands and Belgium.
A recent report revealed that Samsung may have cancelled the Galaxy S22 FE (Fan Edition). The reason behind it is that the rumor mill is yet to come across concrete leaks or certifications related to the device. Since there is no evidence to prove the existence of the device, it seems that the company has no plans to launch it.
In related news, Samsung is now working on its next-generation foldable phones, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Both devices are expected to launch in August. The Galaxy Watch 5 series is also rumored to debut alongside the Galaxy foldables.
