Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Affordable Flagship: Price, Features, Availability

Samsung has launched the Galaxy S23 FE globally. It is the third FE (fan edition) model of the Galaxy S series. The earlier company released the fan edition models of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21, but it is worth noticing that the company has skipped the S22 FE devices and released the sequel to the Galaxy S21 FE. But now gearing up, the company has released the new generation device in the FE lineup, i.e., the Galaxy S23 FE.

For your information, the FE-branded smartphones have the same design and high-end hardware in an affordable range. These devices are specially made for customers who like the flagship devices’ look and feel.

The exterior design of the Galaxy S23 FE is very similar to the Galaxy S23 base and plus models; it is made of the same material that is used in the main lineup. Due to this, the phone is somewhat heavier than the other FE device, the Galaxy S21 FE. The device weighs 209 grams. To get protection against the water, it is certified with IP68.

The Galaxy S23FE is powered by the Exynos 2200/Silicon 8 Gen 1 chip

Samsung has packed the Exynos 2200 chipset for the Galaxy S23FE, which was available for Galaxy S22 devices last year; however, it is limited to some countries, while in others, the company has used the Snapdragon 8Gen 1 chipset. Most probably, the European units will come with an Exynos processor, while other countries, including the US, will get the Snapdragon-powered device.

This time, the company has introduced the FE edition within the year. Because the company hasn’t made any major changes to the device, it is coming with some more flagship-level specifications. Let’s explore it.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE specifications

The Galaxy S23FE is equipped with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that comes with a 60–120Hz refresh rate. It also benefits from Vision Booster technology, which delivers an immersive viewing experience in different light conditions. There are two storage variants available: 8GB RAM+128GB and 8GB RAM+256GB storage.

Talking about the camera, the device is equipped with a triple camera setup at the back, including the primary camera of 50 MP with OIS (optical image stabilization) and adaptive pixel technology; the second camera features a 12 MP ultra-wide shooter; and the last one is an 8 MP camera that comes with 3X optical zoom. For the best selfies, there is a 10 MP selfie camera at the front.

Another important thing for the device is the battery. In this aspect, Samsung has equipped the device with a 4500mAh battery with support for fast charging of 25W. It also supports wireless charging and reverse charging. As One UI 6 is under development, the company has introduced the device with Android 13 and One UI 5.1 out of the box.

Price and availability

The Galaxy S23FE is available in six colors, including mint, cream, graphite, purple, indigo, and tangerine. However, the Indigo and Tangerine colors are available exclusively on Samsung’s online website. The starting price of the Galaxy S23 FE is $599. It will be available to buy on October 5 in select markets.
