While it doesn't exactly reveal the device's launch date, it is still credible that the launch is finally happening next month. It looks like Samsung waited this long to have something to offer alongside the Pixel Launch event, which is taking place early next month.

On the other hand, other Fan Edition devices are expected to be introduced alongside the Galaxy S23 FE. As mentioned, the Galaxy Tab S9 FE devices are in the pipeline, and the other set of renders of which have been leaked yesterday,
all but confirming an imminent launch.

The Galaxy Buds FE are next in the line, and prolific leaker Evan Blass has come up with fresh images of the upcoming earbuds through his recent X post. They fully reveal the Fan Edition earbuds, and the shared press images even show the internals of the earbuds.

The Galaxy Buds FE will feature at least two outer mics next to one inner mic and a one-way speaker (for each bud). Despite being in the cost-effective segment, the Buds FE appears to have ANC to block out external noise.

In addition to the Galaxy Buds FE images, Blass has even shared some promotional images featuring buds themselves, next to what is likely Galaxy S23 FE and Galaxy Tab S9 FE.

As previously said, Samsung is making a big splash this time by releasing several Fan Edition handsets at once, which is still an intriguing strategy, especially as we approach the holiday season, where consumers will no doubt be on the lookout for some enticing deals on smartphones and other devices.
