Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Release Date when does the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Release

Read below for the current best Samsung Galaxy S23 FE release date prediction based on the latest rumors and info.

The Galaxy FE series devices have been the most underrated devices of Samsung’s Galaxy line-up, and the company even ditched the S22 FE. The last FE series device was the Galaxy S21 FE, launched in early 2022. The launch of the S21 FE was delayed due to COVID. The device arrived just a month before the release of the Galaxy S22 series. Due to this delay, the S21 FE failed to capture people’s interest as Galaxy S20 FE did. 

However, Samsung finally realized there is still a market lower-cost version of its flagship phone, and rumors suggest the company has decided to work on the Galaxy S23 FE. We know very little about the next Galaxy FE series device and how the company will distinguish the device from the standard Galaxy S23, which arrived in February.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE release date history

Unlike the flagship Galaxy S series, the Samsung Galaxy FE series doesn’t follow a specific release window; it’s all over the place. We are sure that the S23FE will release sometime after the launch of the Galaxy S23 series, but we are not sure how long we have to wait for the rollout. 

  • Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Release Date: October 2020 
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Release Date: January 2022
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 FE Release Date: Skipped

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE release date prediction: when does the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE release?

Based on the available information, it is still too early to predict a reliable release window for the Galaxy S23FE. However, most Samsung tipsters and leakers believe the smartphone will most likely appear in the second half of 2023. 

According to Hankooki, a reliable Korean publication, the release window for the Galaxy S23FE is between August-September 2023. This aligns with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S20FE three years ago, which appeared precisely seven months after the release of the S20 series.  

Samsung has scheduled an Unpacked Summer Event for the last few years around August. These events have always been focused on foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip. But this year, the Korean tech giant could stir things up by introducing the Galaxy S23FE alongside the Galaxy foldable devices. However, it is still possible that Samsung could hold a separate product launch for the S23FE. 

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE specifications (predicted)

The Galaxy FE series devices are a slightly stripped-down version of Samsung’s latest standard flagship model. So, the S23FE will be a slightly stripped-down variant of the standard Galaxy S23 released in February. 

The FE devices carry several significant features from the flagship model. But of course, some sacrifices are made to lower the cost. Usually, everything comes down to the material of the smartphone, which isn’t as good as the regular Galaxy S device. Samsung can also make a few potential cutbacks in the refresh rates and camera setups. 

  • Display: We do not have any leaked renders of the S23FGE yet. But we expect the screen size to be between the standard S23 (6.1-inch) and S23 Plus (6.6-inch). The S21Fe offers a 6.4-inch display; we expect the same with the S23FE. Regarding refresh rate, the previous FE devices feature the same 120 Hz refresh rates as the flagship models. However, the panel didn’t support an adaptive refresh rate. We expect it to change this year. 
  • CPU: Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (Taking a step back from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2)
  • Camera: A lot has changed since the Galaxy S21FE. Samsung could keep ultra-wide and telephoto lenses like the previous FE devices. The company may even keep the same 8MP telephoto lens used on the S21FE if they want to separate the S23FE from the rest of the lineup. 
  • Operating System: Android 13

As you can see, only a little information is available regarding the specs of the upcoming Galaxy S23FE. However, keep your eye on our page; we will update it as soon as we receive more information.
