- The S23 FE also features a 4,500mAh battery and 25W fast charging for gaining 50% charge in 30 minutes.

Samsung's return to its Fan Edition (FE) devices is finally here, and with that, we're getting to lay our eyes on the Galaxy S23 FE. According to a press release, the latest FE arrives with a 6.4-inch dynamic AMOLED 2x display, capable of taking your streaming and gaming to another level. The Korean OEM adds the S23 FE's display has been strengthened at its core to be a little more durable and easy on the eyes for longer use or when out during the day and night.
Powering the S23 FE's graphical and other software functions is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, which was featured in last year's Galaxy S22. In fact, the Galaxy S23 FE is essentially the S22 in the body of an S23 and with a cheaper price tag.
This is evident by its relatively flat frame and floating triple camera design on its rear panel. Samsung states consumers will experience a 50MP primary sensor with 3x zoom, Nightography, and advanced digital image stabilization (VDIS) for capturing high-quality photos and videos in any situation.
Shoring up the main camera is a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens.
With a strong aluminum frame and Gorilla Glass 5 protecting the back of the S23 FE, users should find a little comfort in that regard. The latest Fan Edition device has also been given an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.
Samsung is hopeful that the Galaxy S23 FE's "smart battery" can get them through the day with little to no problem. With that said, the Android device contains a pretty decent 4,500mAh battery that "intuitively adjusts to conserve energy." Additionally, if you ever find yourself short on time, the phone can charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes with its 25W fast charger.
The phone will come in 128GB or 256GB storage sizes. Furthermore, consumers will find the device in Mint, Cream, Graphite, and Purple colorways. But, if you're not quite feeling those, Samsung is exclusively offering the device in Tangerine and Indigo.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is available for pre-orders starting at $599, which is notably $100 cheaper than the launch price of the Galaxy S21 FE. The device will see its official market availability begin on October 26, with interested folk able to pick it up at T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, Samsung's official website, Samsung Experience Stores, and other retail and carrier partners.

I'm surprised they are still making these FE edition must be making them moneyReply
If AT&T picks it up and has the 256 GB version, I'm getting it.mustang7757 said:I'm surprised they are still making these FE edition must be making them money
My worry is they won't carry the 256 GB version because they didn't carry that version of the S20 FE I have. But, least the S20 FE had an SD card slot.
Hopefully they do , I remember you having s20fe and pretty happy with it .Reply
So no SD card in this newer one ? Bummer
Still have it, even though I dropped it and shattered the screen a month and a half ago.Reply
Even with a case on it, it landed screen down and found the only pebble that was bigger than the lip of the case and dinged it on the lower half of the screen.
Screen still works, and I just finished with the last payment, so we'll see what AT&T gets - if they get it at all.
Unbelievable when that happens, it's been a long time since I broke a screen on my device, I always have a case and glass protector since I don't Invest in insurance hopefully I can get away and keep doing that .Reply
You must be kidding? This is surely an insult to all Sam's fans?Reply
At this price I'll get a One Plus 11 instead. It's a way better phone, a real premium phone with better performance and looks.
Samsung, go home, you're drunk.
Well, this finally showed up on AT&T's site.Reply
But they only have the 128Gb version.
That's a disappointment.
May have to look elsewhere.
