The Galaxy S23 Extremely’s digicam and battery life are spectacular. Extra importantly, the Galaxy S23 telephones aren’t dearer than their predecessors, regardless of providing significantly better efficiency. Nonetheless, the telephones are fairly costly. Samsung followers on a funds would possibly wish to look ahead to the value to drop — or for the cheaper Galaxy S23 FE to reach.
What’s nice about Galaxy S23 efficiency to date is that we’re not seeing any of the problems that harm the Galaxy S22 sequence final 12 months. There’s no Exynos model of the handset, and Samsung isn’t throttling the cellphone. Neither is it dishonest in benchmarks.
If something, the Galaxy S23 telephones characteristic a good quicker variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that can energy most 2023 Android flagships. And the identical chip is on the market in all areas.
Had Samsung adopted Apple’s technique, it might have simply turned the Galaxy S22 into a terrific funds different to the Galaxy S23. And Samsung did say throughout the Galaxy S23 occasion that it’ll proceed promoting the Galaxy S22. However these telephones nonetheless rock the Snapdragon/Exynos combos of chips.
That’s to say the Galaxy S22 might need been a good Galaxy S23 FE different. Samsung wouldn’t have wanted to convey the Fan Version again. As a reminder, there was no S22 FE variant final 12 months.
A Korean leaker (through SamMobile) claims that Samsung is making a Galaxy S23 FE this 12 months. The cellphone must be extra reasonably priced than the $799 Galaxy S23, although the value hasn’t leaked. However the leaker says the cellphone will use the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor so Samsung can lower prices.
As a reminder, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is a greater variant of the common Snapdragon chip that powers the Galaxy S22 telephones. It’s the chip that Samsung used final 12 months in all its Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 foldables. It’s quicker and fewer prone to overheat.
Put otherwise, the Galaxy S23 FE received’t match the Galaxy S23’s efficiency, however it’ll nonetheless be a terrific smartphone that’s on par with final 12 months’s flagships. Presumably. We nonetheless want to determine what kind of specs the handset will supply and the way a lot Samsung will cost for it.
