What we know so far
Samsung fans, rejoice! The Galaxy S23 FE is not only happening, but it’s also getting a major upgrade in the camera department. According to sources, Samsung is already testing a prototype of the Galaxy S23 FE with a 50 MP main camera, which would be a significant improvement over the 12 MP shooter of the Galaxy S21 FE.
The Galaxy S23 FE is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2023, following the release of the Galaxy S23 series in February. The phone will likely retain the same design and display as the Galaxy S21 FE, but with some changes under the hood. For instance, the Galaxy S23 FE will reportedly be powered by the Exynos 2200 chipset in all regions, unlike the Galaxy S21 FE which had different processors depending on the market.
The Galaxy S23 FE will also have a 4,500 mAh battery, which should support 25W fast charging, and two storage options: 128 GB and 256 GB. The RAM could be either 6 GB or 8 GB. The phone will have model code SM-S711x, which is consistent with Samsung’s recent flagship naming scheme.

What to expect from the camera
The Galaxy S23 FE will be Samsung’s lower-cost flagship offering, aimed at customers who want the premium features of the Galaxy S series without breaking the bank. The phone will likely have a similar camera setup as the Galaxy S21 FE, which included a 12 MP ultra-wide lens and an 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. However, the main camera will be upgraded to a 50 MP sensor, which should offer better details and low-light performance.
The Galaxy S23 FE will also support 5G connectivity, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G platform. This will enable smooth gaming, streaming and video calling on the phone. The phone will also run on Android 13 out of the box, with Samsung’s One UI 4.0 on top.
When and how much
The Galaxy S23 FE is expected to be announced at a Samsung Unpacked event in August or September 2023, along with other devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The phone will likely cost around $700, which is $100 less than the Galaxy S23.
