Samsung introduced the Fan Edition (FE) versions of its flagship smartphones with the Galaxy S20 series. The South Korea-based tech giant launched the FE versions in the Galaxy S20 and S21 series but skipped the S22 FE model. However, the company may not skip Galaxy S Fan Edition for the second time as it is expected to launch the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE variant in 2023. According to a report by Sammobile, Samsung is planning to launch a Galaxy S23 FE n the fourth quarter of 2023.
The report claims that the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE smartphone will initially be available only in select markets. A wider release of the upcoming smartphone is expected to happen in Q4 2023 and Q1 2024. Previous rumours suggest that the Fan Edition phone is expected to feature the Exynos 2200 chipset which will be backed by AMD-powered Xclipse 920 GPU.
Samsung Galaxy S23 FE may arrive with the Exynos 2200 chipset
The Exynos 2200 was Samsung’s first chip with an AMD GPU and it will be nearly two years old by the time the Galaxy S23 FE is expected to arrive. To compare, the Galaxy S23 series launched earlier this year is exclusively powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets.
However, Samsung is reportedly planning to use its proprietary Exynos chipset for the upcoming FE version in all markets, including the US.
Moreover, the Exynos 2200 chipset also powered the Galaxy S22 series in Europe. This chipset attracted a lot of criticism so Samsung decided to go with Qualcomm chipsets for the S23 series in all markets.
