Missed out on a good deal

This seems to be bad news for customers who were vying for a good deal on the older generation of Galaxy S series models, however, they can still try to get a bargain from third-party sellers who might still be selling the Galaxy S20 smartphones.

It has been only a few days that the Galaxy S21 series has been launched and in a matter of days, the Galaxy S20 series is out of stock! Call it coincidence but many would pivot towards the possibilities that Samsung has discontinued the Galaxy S20 smartphones.

There is also a possibility that these sellers might have refurbished units of the Galaxy S20 series.

Only S20 FE available

If you go to Samsung’s official website you will see that only the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is available as opposed to the other three S20 phones in the lineup. This is not surprising considering that the FE was announced only a couple of months ago.

With this move, Samsung may be looking to push its recently launched S21 series in the global markets considering that the device has been launched at a competitive starting price of Rs 69,999. In this price range, it competes directly with the likes of the Apple iPhone 12 Mini and the LG‘s swivelling smartphone, the LG Wing.
