The Samsung Galaxy S23 is just about two weeks away. It, along with the S23 Ultra and Plus, will launch on February 1. As we already know a lot about the phone from the recent leaks, many are planning to upgrade to it.
In fact, a lot made early reservations for the upcoming S23 flagship from Samsung. Well, if you are one of them, you might be making a mistake.
According to the latest rumor, the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE will launch alongside the Galaxy S23. Now, yes, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE did not make any sense on paper. It was not a good deal when you compared it with the Galaxy S22. Many even acted like it didn’t exist. But things will be different for the FE series in 2023.
The Galaxy S22 FE Could Threaten the Samsung Galaxy S23
We have had a lot of rumors stating that the Galaxy S21 FE was the last Fan Edition from Samsung. But towards the end of 2022, the rumor about Samsung quietly working on the Galaxy S22 FE emerged. And it pointed out that the FE might not be dead at all.
The leakster OreXda on Twitter told us to hold our breath for the Galaxy S22 FE. And there have been rumors that the device might launch alongside the Galaxy S23. In other words, in the Galaxy Unpacked event of February 1, you might see four new devices come out.
Even if Samsung does not launch the Galaxy S22 FE alongside the Galaxy S23, it will debut on Unpacked Part 2. And it is a different event that is soon planned by Samsung after the S23 series launch.
