There has been less than a month since the beginning of 2023, but it is already anticipated that this year will usher in the release of multiple new phones from businesses such as Samsung, OnePlus, Apple, and Google. Even if it is difficult to forecast exactly what will happen in the smartphone business in 2023, it is possible to make some informed conclusions due to the fact that many companies like to debut their products in a manner that is largely consistent from year to year.
Despite the fact that reports spread throughout 2022 led us to believe it was increasingly likely that Samsung’s S21 FE was the company’s final Fan Edition phone, signaling the end of the road for Samsung’s budget flagship series, the FE might not be dead after all!
The most recent rumor suggests that Samsung will release the Galaxy S22 FE at the same time as the Galaxy S23. Now, it is true that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE did not make any sense when viewed in a theoretical context. When weighed against the Galaxy S22, it was not a particularly attractive purchase option. Many others went so far as to act like it didn’t even exist. But when the FE series returns in 2023, everything will be different.
A leaker who goes by the name Connor and uses the Twitter handle @OreXda is now advising us to hold our breath in anticipation of the… Galaxy S22 FE, which might be unveiled during the Galaxy S23 launch event, or during the “Unpacked: Part 2,” hints at a different Samsung event that might be held shortly after the Galaxy S23 launch. Both of these events are scheduled to take place on February 1.
Connor and another leakster who goes by the name of RGcloudS appear to have revealed a few more facts about the Galaxy S22 FE and Samsung’s future intentions for the “FE” line in a sequence of Tweets and replies. These details include the following:
It is anticipated that the Galaxy S22 FE will take the place of what was going to be known as the Galaxy A74, which was going to be Samsung’s high-end “A” series mid-range phone for 2023.
Since the Exynos 2200 isn’t a better chip than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the only logical reason for Samsung’s alleged decision to go back to using the Exynos 2200 is that the company might have piles of 2200s lying around. According to different findings, the Galaxy S22 FE could be powered by either the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset from the previous year or the Exynos 2200.
The Galaxy S22 FE is claimed to use Samsung’s own 108MP ISOCELL HM6 primary camera sensor, measuring 1/1.6-inches, with support for up to 8K 24fps video, PD autofocus, and 9-to-1 pixel-binning (snaps 12MP photographs by default); the Xiaomi 12T, which has this sensor, takes excellent photos and videos.
Samsung’s Galaxy S22 FE may be the last “Fan Edition” phone since various tipsters say we shouldn’t expect a Galaxy S23 FE next year.
The Galaxy S21 FE was underrated at first
The S21 FE was always going to be a relatively inferior phone compared to the then Galaxy S22, which of course was Samsung’s flagship phone. It came with a refreshed design, a new processor, and cameras, and it was only $100 more expensive than the S21 FE, which launched at $700 and packed last year’s hardware, including the processor, display, and cameras.
Nearly a month later, when the Galaxy S22 eventually debuted, the S21 FE still didn’t make any sense to people.
In spite of the fact that the Galaxy S21 FE didn’t actually make many sense when it was priced at $700, thanks to reductions and resale offers, the Fan Edition phone quickly converted into what was likely the best Android flagship phone in in terms of raw value, and things stayed this way throughout 2022!
The simple fact is that the S21 FE was a highly popular phone, and it was also a phone that was extremely regarded, as per reviews on different online stores including Amazon, which are one of the few public review metrics that are available to the general public. In point of fact, it is possibly even more well-liked than the Galaxy S22 based on the online retail store reviews by users, and it has superior evaluations all around. As a result, it is reasonable to claim that the S21 FE was the model of high-end Samsung smartphone that most consumers opted for in 2022.
Because of this, there is a genuine reason to be thrilled about the possibility of a brand new Galaxy S22 FE rather than confused, and this is why you Should think twice before buying the upcoming Galaxy S22 if the Galaxy S22 FE makes an unexpected debut at Samsung’s upcoming Unpacked event on February 1
