Samsung is holding the second major unpacking of the year next month, where it will announce a pair of new foldable smartphones, Galaxy Buds2 and two new smartwatches. While we are not expecting a new Galaxy Note21 this year, it was originally assumed that a cheaper variant of the S21 series, the Galaxy S21 FE, would appear at the event.
According to a new report from LetsGoDigital, Galaxy S21 FE will not debut at the upcoming unpacking. LetsGoDigital has seen official documentation from Samsung confirming that the cheaper S21 variant would not be announced.

This report only repeats another report from June which claimed that S21 FE would not be announced at the event. It is not until October or later that we can expect to see the cheaper S flagship.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is expected to arrive with a 6.4-inch FullHD + Super AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate. There will also be a plastic back panel and Android 11 out of the box. This cheaper S21 variant is powered by the Snapdragon 888, but another variant with the Exynos 2100 chipset can supplement or replace the Snapdragon version due to chip supply limitations. Galaxy S21 FE has been seen in gray, white, violet and green.
