Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event is just a day away and the company is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Buds 2 at the event. Now, ahead of the big unveil, Samsung has accidentally offered a sneak-peek (now deleted) of the long-rumoured Samsung Galaxy S21 FE on its Instagram handle. The device has made a surprise appearance in a back-to-school ad alongside the Galaxy Book laptop and what could be the Galaxy Buds Pro TWS earbuds. Interestingly, the sneak peek comes amidst rumours of the Galaxy S21 FE being postponed to October due to chip shortage.

The fact that the Insta post was deleted suggests the phone indeed is the Galaxy S21 FE and not the Galaxy S21. It remains to be seen what Samsung has in store for us. The image shows the back of the phone, with triple cameras and an LED flash. The camera module has the same colour as the rest of the panel instead of a dual-tone finish as seen on the Galaxy S21 models.
