Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Rumoured Specifications Surfaced Online
It appears that the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is expected to launch this year. While there are doubts surrounding its release, a recent report from SamMobile claims that the FE model will feature a different chipset and camera setup. Here’s what we know so far.
Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Rumours and Speculations
Samsung is rumoured to be releasing a Fan Edition (FE) of its Galaxy S23 flagship line, despite some tech insiders’ doubts. According to a recent report by SamMobile, citing a “trusted source”, the FE variant is expected to launch sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. The report also reveals that the Galaxy S23 FE will feature different internal hardware compared to its recently launched siblings, including an onboard Exynos 2200 chipset – a downgrade from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 used in the existing Galaxy S23 models.
While Samsung’s shift to using its own dated first-party chipset might disappoint some, the FE models have always been intended to be an affordable entry to the line-up. The shift to Exynos is likely a strategic move to achieve a less hefty price tag. However, there’s still a chance that the phone could feature a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 instead, according to another rumour reported by Tom’s Guide.
Other specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE revealed by the SamMobile report include up to 256 GB of internal storage, up to 8GB RAM, a 4,500mAh battery, and 25 W of fast charging support. The phone is also expected to feature a 50MP primary camera, although the source did not provide any details on the other cameras or the phone’s design.
While some fans are hoping for the Galaxy S23 FE to come with an integrated S-Pen and to be introduced to the market as a more budget-friendly Galaxy Note successor, this seems unlikely. The Galaxy S23 FE will likely be a more affordable option for those who want to experience the flagship line’s features and capabilities without breaking the bank.
Pokdepinion: If it uses the older chip, that’s still fine by me provided they could lower the price even further. No point in having an FE device if it’s going to cost on the higher side.
