At first, it didn’t seem like there was a place for the S21 FE, which arrived almost a year after the Galaxy S21 series, in Samsung’s portfolio, and the starting price was also quite high. But in the end, three reasons stood out in favor of it: over time, the price became particularly competitive, there is Samsung’s extremely high-quality product support, and the Exynos 2100 was replaced by the Snapdragon 888 chip.
Fortunately, the S21 FE was sold here with a Snapdragon chip [+]
Less than a month passed, and the S21 FE was overshadowed by the start of the S22 family, but the European series launched with such a scandalous performance “thanks” to the Exynos 2200 chip that it took months to shake its pants, and finally Samsung’s management also trashed it for many years an unpopular homemade solution since the S23 is available everywhere with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip. The S22/S23 FE has been mentioned for quite some time, and rumors of the unannounced Exynos 2300 chip have already stirred spirits, but so far nothing has come of the phone.

SamMobile has now heard one horror news spy news: the S23 FE may return to the infamous Exynos 2200 for some very strange reason. At this point, it is not even certain that it is worthwhile to spend development costs on a mobile phone equipped with such a chip, after all, the named chip will be almost two years old by the time it is predicted to launch in the third quarter, and whoever insists on it will probably also find a reasonably priced part of the S22 on the market . In any case, the S23 FE can increase the resolution of the main camera from 12 to 50 megapixels, which is also something.
The Galaxy S23 is a qualitative improvement only because it uses the Snapdragon Gen 2 for Galaxy chip everywhere [+]
The 4500 mAh battery and 25 watt charging can remain, and the S23 FE can start in a 6/128 GB version. Of course, these are just new additions to an FE series phone that may never actually be made, or not in the way and with the various specifications that have been guessed so far. Of course, it is also possible that Samsung has leftover Exynos 2200 chips in stock, and something needs to be done with the stock if recycling is not an option.
