While it is good to see Samsung finally bringing us the launch date of the Galaxy S23 FE, the device was recently shown off in full through a hands-on video posted to YouTube (via SamMobile). The video was apparently uploaded early last month, showcasing the device in total, which appears to be shot in a retail store.

With the device already showing up at retailers, it appears Samsung is prepared for the launch and is set to try and steal some thunder from Google's Pixel launch. The teaser pages of Galaxy S23 FE and Galaxy Buds FE are already live on Amazon India, giving us an idea of what to expect from the aforementioned devices.
Talks of a possible S23 FE have been going on ever since the flagship Galaxy S23 series launched early this year. There has been quite a bit of interest in a new Fan Edition phone after Samsung decided not to launch an S22 FE for various reasons.
Nonetheless, the upcoming launches for Samsung and Google are just around the corner. We expect to know more about them in the following days.
