Ahead of Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023, Samsung Galaxy S23 FE key details leak
The rumoured Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is expected to pack the same internals for all regions except for one major part - the processor.
Just as we're gearing up for the big launch of Samsung's next generation of foldable smartphones at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event, a big leak has hinted at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 FE and what it could offer. While no Galaxy S22 FE ever existed, previous reports have hinted that Samsung may be working on a toned-down version of its current flagship series. But this isn't a sure-shot confirmation of its launch at the Galaxy Unpacked 2023, and the South Korean company could simply announce it via a press release, as per the previously reported launch timeline between August and September.
Nonetheless, this latest report hints at the key specifications of the Galaxy S23 FE, revealing one major difference across regions - the processor.
Samsung Galaxy S23 FE details leaked
The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is an upcoming toned-down version of the premium Galaxy S23, meaning that it won't get the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 under the hood. Instead, a previous report by Sammobile had hinted at Samsung's in-house Exynos 2200 chipset powering the device in nearly every region. However, a new version of the phone has popped up on the Geekbench browser which is likely for the US market.
mobile to buy?
Labelled as SM-S711U1, the Geekbench listing shows this version of the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE having a “taro” chipset, which is the codename for Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. thus, if this listing is to be believed, the Galaxy S23 FE could arrive with the same chipset as the Galaxy S22.
Having said that, the SM-S711B variant of the Galaxy S23 FE is powered by the Exynos 2200 which has the codename s5e9925. This means that not every region will get the same spec'd Samsung Galaxy S23 FE.
Samsung Galaxy S23 FE - Expected upgrades
As per the reports, the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is expected to feature a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. One of the notable improvements is said to be in the camera department. Earlier leaks suggest that Galaxy S23 FE may pack a 50MP camera instead of a 12MP like its previous avatar Galaxy S21 FE. It could get the Exynos 2200 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, depending on the region, which could be paired with 6GB/8GB RAM.
