The Samsung Galaxy S series is one of the most popular smartphone lines in the world. The South Korean tech giant has been consistently releasing new iterations of the Galaxy S series every year, and the latest one to join the lineup is the Galaxy S23 series. The S series is the flagship series of Samsung as it packs all the top-of-the-line features that make it an out great flagship, preferred by most people who know well about the tech.
It's been a year since we looked for the S23 FE, and leaks and rumors are coming out. A few days ago, a report came that Galaxy S23 FE might be powered by Exynos 2200 SoC. A Geekbench benchmark test revealed that the U.S. version of it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The Galaxy S23 FE has been spotted on the Wireless Power Consortium website — a wireless charging database. The listing shows the full name of the device and its model number (SM-S711U). In a recent leak, it is tipped that the Galaxy S23 FE might imprint the selfie shooter of the Galaxy S22 in place of the Galaxy S23 shooter. The report says that it will sport the 10-megapixel selfie shooter of the Galaxy S22.
According to a report by GSMArena, the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE could make its debut soon as the smartphone has recently cleared the Bluetooth SIG Certification. The smartphone's model numbers for different regions have been spotted on the website. It is listed, as verified by Gadgets 360, with model numbers SM-S711U and SM-S711U1 for the US and the US unlocked, respectively. For Canada and the global market, it has been spotted with model numbers SM-S711W and SM-S711B. Additionally, for China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, the phone bears the model number SM-S7110. However, there are no official details available on the launch of the smartphone yet.
By the time the Galaxy S23 FE is launched, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will have about two years to make it as old as the Exynos 2200. Being of the same age, it is still considered less confident than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets. Samsung is planning and toiling hard to beat Qualcomm and change the opinion with its upcoming Deca-Core Exynos 2400.
The U.S. version of the Galaxy S23 FE is solely equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but there is something that you should know. That chip was manufactured by Samsung itself, not TSMC. After the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 was released. Qualcomm shifted production of its flagship application processor back to TSMC.
The Galaxy S23 FE is expected to sport a 6.4-inch display along with 6GB/8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The camera setup might consist of a 50MP primary camera backed by Samsung's ISOCELL GN3 sensor, an ultra-wide angle camera driven by a 12MP Sony IMX258 sensor, and an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. The front-facing camera will weigh in at 12MP. A 4500mAh battery will keep the lights on and support 25W fast wired charging speeds and is rumored to have 5W wireless charging.
The Galaxy S23 FE did not appear on stage during today's Unpacked event. That was reserved for the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Watch 6, Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, and the Galaxy Tab S9 tablet line. Galaxy S23 FE will be introduced during the fourth quarter of this year, possibly at the same event that unveils the next iteration of the Galaxy Buds.
