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

Published

on


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.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 to Miss Out on Wi-Fi 7 Compatibility

Published

By


Samsung’s sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, are close to taking the floor at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July. Maybe the Galaxy Z Flip 6 won’t support Wi-Fi 7.

Despite leading the foldable market, Samsung’s Galaxy foldable devices still lack a few features, and it’s the same case with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6. The report says the forthcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 reveals that the phone will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra is the first and only Galaxy smartphone that supports Wi-Fi 7 facilities. 

Since the brand has already introduced Wi-Fi 7 on the existing Galaxy S24 Ultra, it was expected that the upcoming foldable device would also bring the same Wi-Fi support, but unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore. This is being speculated by the FCC certification, which hinted that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 will lack support for Wi-Fi 7. However, the device potentially has Wi-Fi disabled at a firmware or software level, as we have already seen on the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+. 

All Galaxy S24 variants arrived with the essential hardware on the Snapdragon variants, but since the Exynos chip that powers them in most countries tops out at Wi-Fi 6E, Samsung chose to artificially restrict Wi-Fi 7 on all the Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ units regardless of the chip inside. The Galaxy Z Flip 6 might have lower specs as compared to other Galaxy flagships, whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to support future Wi-Fi 7 for better futureproofing.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

Samsung Galaxy S23’s May Security Patch Cause Unknown Error on Google Wallet

Published

By


Samsung has delivered this month’s May 2024 security patch for the Galaxy S23 device. Now, users of the device from several regions are reporting that after installing the patch, their Google Wallet isn’t working seamlessly. 

A couple of days ago, Google officially released a statement saying that from June 10th, Google Wallet will only be compatible with devices that at least run on Android 9 or above. Now the report is saying that Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S23, users are facing issues while using Google Wallet. 

A recent report suggest that a lot of Samsung Galaxy S23 users have reported through the Korean manufacturer’s community forums that, after installing the May 2024 security patch, they cannot use the Google Wallet seamlessly and flawlessly as before. These users have claimed that right after downloading the latest Android security patch, the Google Wallet app displays an unknown error message indicating that the phone does not meet the required security standards, causing them to be unable to make contactless payments. 

Galaxy S23 users are not even able to access the cards that were linked to the platform. Noticeably, a huge percentage of reports come from Galaxy S23 users belonging to Europe; however, this issue has also been detected in other regions, including Australia, the US, or the United Arab Emirates, and other devices like the Galaxy S22 or the Pixel 8 Pro. 

If you are going through this inconvenient issue, here’s a temporary solution. You can uninstall the application updates in the Google Play Store. This will help you in a way; the error message will still appear in the app, but it will let you make payments with it again.
