Samsung’s 2022 Flagship Models
It is unlikely that Samsung might launch high-end smartphones alongside each other and at least a minimum gap of a month between these smartphones’ releases is expected. Notably, the report cited that the upcoming smartphone in question - the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE’s availability could be limited at launch. Also, it is said that some markets will receive the units of this Samsung smartphone in January next year while the rest of the markets might face a delay in its sales.

A delay in the device could be good for Samsung itself as it will be able to secure more chips for the upcoming flagship models. Samsung might even host an Unpacked event for the Galaxy S22 series ahead of the MWC 2022 tech show, which is tipped to debut on February 28. However, there is no official confirmation regarding any of these details and we need to wait for Samsung to confirm the same.
