The Samsung’s Galaxy S Fan Edition (FE) series was introduced in 2020 with the launch of the Galaxy S20 FE. During the announcement, the Korean giant revealed that it will bring more FE phones down the line.

However, unfortunately, the whole thing did not go as plan. The company only released a single successor in the form of Galaxy S21 FE. Even this device was on the brink of getting canceled but somehow it went official much later than the planned timeline.

Further, the Galaxy S22 FE had a rough start since the beginning. It was said to be axed a few months ago. Amidst this, a new report now suggests that Samsung may debut the Galaxy S23 FE later this year.

According to a report by a South Korean publication called Hankooki (via SamMobile), Samsung will release the Galaxy S23 FE in the second half of 2023. If this is true, the Galaxy S FE series is still alive and intact.

The affordable Galaxy S lineup was said to be discontinued for once and all last year. Thus, this piece of information is good news for targeted consumers.

The report also confirms the fate of the rumored Galaxy A74. The successor of Galaxy A73 is most likely canceled. This is expected to prevent cannibalism among Samsung’s own phones. For the unaware, the A7x handsets are usually priced closer to the Galaxy S FE devices.

Additionally, the report also says that the upcoming Galaxy S23 FE will be sold in more markets than ever before. This is to compensate for the absence of Galaxy A74.

Unfortunately, not much is known about the next-gen Galaxy S Fan Edition smartphone. There’s a chance it could be powered by an unreleased Exynos 2300 SoC. However, we could not rule out the possibility of Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and Snapdragon Gen 2 for Galaxy chipsets either.
