New Delhi: Samsung hesitated before releasing the Galaxy S22 Fan Edition model. For the S23 series, it won't be the case. According to reports, the tech giant is getting ready to release the Galaxy S23 FE, which could happen after the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Flip5 models. The S23 FE European firmware testing for the brand reportedly began recently.
According to reports, sales of the Galaxy S23 series have dropped this month and are expected to fall even more in Q2. It might fall 20% short of what the S22 series accomplished in 2017.
Customers don't typically purchase expensive smartphones, so Samsung may have chosen to release the S23 FE this year in an effort to draw in customers who value premium hardware at a reasonable price.
The S23 FE was previously said to launch ahead of Samsung's fifth-generation foldable smartphones in the Z series. According to reports, the company has started testing the device's firmware in Europe. Versions for the US and South Korea have not yet been tested. Samsung might need a few months to complete the phone, so its release might be delayed until after the announcement of the Fold5 and Flip5.

The Galaxy S21 FE, the final smartphone to bear the FE moniker, was extremely well-liked and helped the company's sales in the nation.The S23 FE, which has been the subject of rumours for several weeks, is said to be a "budget-friendly" variation of the flagship S23 with minor hardware adjustments.
