Samsung India begins pre-orders for the Galaxy S21 FE 5G. The phone is to go on sale from January 11.
Samsung's “leak of the year 2021” phone is about to break cover in India by next week. Just after the global launch, Samsung India has now started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S21 FE locally. The phone is supposed to go on sale from January 11, 2022. Interested buyers will have to pay a small amount to register the phone for themselves.
Note that Samsung India has still not revealed the prices and the storage variants for the Indian model.

The Snapdragon 888 version seems to be reserved for the US variant only.
