Samsung Galaxy S23 FE may not happen after all
It’s been a while since Samsung launched the last Fan Edition / “FE” smartphone. The Galaxy S21 FE was released back in January last year. And since then… nothing. Rumors have been rife, first about a Galaxy S22 FE, then when that didn’t happen, we started hearing about a Galaxy S23 FE, which should arrive in the second half of this year at the latest.
And still. Today, a prolific (and usually reliable) leaker, Roland Quandt, has some bad news for anyone who’s been waiting with bated breath for the S23 FE. According to him, “it doesn’t look like” there will actually be an S23 FE this year. Or, dare we add, any other year if it’s not this one.
It certainly doesn’t look like there will be an S23 FE this year.

Now obviously we can’t tell you exactly what’s going on and what Samsung’s plans really are. There are conflicting reports about the existence and launch (or lack thereof) of this device, so don’t forget to take such reports with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Quandt unfortunately didn’t go into more detail, but it’s safe to assume that he would have had some information about such a handset if it were to be released in the next few months – he is, after all, a constant source of leaks. This statement leads us to believe that he may not have seen anything about the S23 FE yet, which could very well mean that it will never exist.
Samsung never really felt comfortable with the two FE smartphone models it launched. These were ‘flagship killer’ devices, and it seems that for a similar budget, Samsung would much prefer that you buy last year’s flagship (or the one from the year before that), or an A-series mid-ranger instead something. like this. At least that’s one way of looking at it. Stick around and we’ll tell you what actually ends up happening.
