In fall 2020, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE. The acronym stood for ‘Fan Edition’ and was a turning point in the company’s strategy. The South Koreans were combining the best of their Galaxy S20, but with some somewhat reduced features (such as materials), at a somewhat lower price.
Curiously, the processor used was better than in the Galaxy S20 and, after a long wait, in January 2022 the Galaxy S21 FE. With the Galaxy S22 They skipped a generation, but it seems that the company wants to return through the front door with a Samsung Galaxy S23 FE whose design has already been leaked.
The Galaxy S23 FE to shore up sales for the last part of 2023
The launch of the Galaxy S20 FE was very curious. While the S20 assembled the SoC Exynos 990the FE model opted for the Snapdragon 865a Superior SoC both in processor and efficiency and, above all, GPU.
In the end, we have ended up seeing that all Galaxy S23 They have been launched in all their versions with the Qualcomm processor (in fact, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 customized for Samsung), but That first Galaxy FE went down very well among users.
After the launch of the Galaxy S22, there were many rumors about the launch of an FE version of the same, but it never materialized and it seemed that Samsung had discontinued the family. In April of this year, however, we began to read the first leaks that pointed to the launch of a Galaxy S23 FE for the end of the year, and now we have more clues.
And, as we read in Android Authoritythe Chinese regulatory body has certificate Samsung’s new phone. When a mobile phone goes through TENAA, it means that its launch is close and the interesting thing is that, in addition to some specifications, they allow us to see the design.
As you can see, on an aesthetic level it will be very similar to what was seen in the Galaxy S23 and it is expected to be a mix between the characteristics and design of that terminal and the Galaxy A54.
Judging by the position of the flash, everything indicates that They will borrow the body of the Galaxy A54 and include some features of the Galaxy S23even something intermediate, but we will have to wait to see it because the specifications indicated in TENAA may simply be indicative.
For example, the A54 has a 5,000 mAh battery, the S23 with a 3,900 mAh battery, and TENAA lists 4,370 mAh (which could be 4,500 mAh) for the Galaxy S23 FE. According to the organization, The screen will be 6.3 inches with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixelswill have an SoC with a CPU that will reach 2.99 GHz (but without giving a model), 8 GB of RAM and versions of 128 and 256 GB of storage.
Regarding the cameras, the certification allows us to see what it will have a 50 megapixel sensor for the main camera, one of 8 Mpx for the wide angle, one of 12 Mpx for the 3X telephoto and a 10 Mpx front camera. These details coincide with previous leaks, but we will have to wait for the official presentation.
What seems certain is that this year a Galaxy S23 FE will be launched that can revitalize Samsung’s sales for the last period of the year.
