Samsung‘s Galaxy S23 FE has been in rumors for a long time, but it continues to elude the market. There have been contrasting reports about its launch, with rumored timelines ranging from September 2023 to early 2024. A tipster has now thrown their weight behind an early debut of the phone. X or Twitter Tipster Yogesh Brar claims that the Galaxy S23 FE will arrive in September. He has also provided a spec round-up for the phone.
Galaxy S23 FE rumored specs
The Galaxy S23 FE has been subject to an extensive amount of leaks over the past few months. Those leaks have revealed pretty much all of its key specs and features. However, if you haven’t been keeping tabs, here’s what you can expect from Samsung’s next-gen Fan Edition (FE) phone.
Samsung will equip the Galaxy S23 FE with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED with a 120Hz refresh rate. Depending on the market, the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Samsung’s Exynos 2200 processor. We are expecting up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage if not more.
The handset will feature a 50MP primary rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilization). It will be paired with an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 12MP telephoto zoom camera with 3x optical zoom support. For selfies and video calls, you get a 10MP camera on the front. Both front and rear cameras should support 4K video recording.
The Galaxy S23 FE will be fueled by a 4,500mAh battery with 25W wired charging support. It will also boast wireless charging (likely 15W). Other highlights include stereo speakers, an official IP rating for dust and water resistance (likely IP68), an under-display fingerprint scanner, and Samsung DeX support. The device will arrive with Android 13 onboard and get updates until Android 17. It will also get regular security updates for up to five years from launch.
It’s unclear if Samsung will release the phone globally in September
This isn’t the first time we have heard about a September release of the Galaxy S23 FE. However, previous rumors suggest that the phone will only arrive in a handful of markets in September. Samsung will gradually bring it to more markets over the next few months, with a global release completed in early 2024. It remains to be seen how accurate are those claims. With September just a week away now, we might hear something from Samsung soon.
