Samsung’s Galaxy S21 FE, which was rumored to be unveiled at the next Galaxy Unpacked event in August, may not arrive until the end of the year.

According to some reports out of South Korea, Samsung has suspended production of the Galaxy S20 FE successor due to a battery shortage. A few other reports, however, blame the move on a chip shortage.

According to a since-deleted report from ETNews, Samsung has decided to cancel the Galaxy S21 FE altogether due to a shortage of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chips. Samsung leaker Ice Universe suggests the company has only temporarily halted production of the S21 FE due to a battery shortage.

As reported by SamMobile, Galaxy S21 FE’s primary battery supplier, LG Energy Solutions, is currently dealing with a few production issues. The secondary supplier, Samsung SDI, is yet to start producing batteries for the upcoming value flagship.

In a statement sent to Bloomberg, Samsung said:

While we cannot discuss details of the unreleased product, nothing has been determined regarding the alleged production suspension.

The Galaxy S21 FE is expected to arrive with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and the same 120Hz refresh rate as the best Android phones. It is also tipped to feature a Snapdragon 888 chipset, triple 12MP cameras, Wi-Fi 6 support, and a 4,500mAh battery.

Android Central has reached out to Samsung and is awaiting comment.
