Samsung has once again revived one of its most interesting product ranges, the Galaxy FE (Fan Edition), which consist of products—smartphones, mainly—that inherit some of the most important features of the brand’s flagships, but with a lower price. This year, the company has launched the Galaxy S23 FE, which comes with a design and screen similar to the Galaxy S23, as well as high-end specifications, although somewhat smaller than those of its older brothers. Samsung has also presented a new tablet, the Galaxy Tab S9 FE, as well as headphones; the Galaxy Buds FE, to complement this new model.
The Galaxy S23 FE, we reiterate, It arrives with the same look as the rest of the Galaxy S23 series smartphones, as well as with new materials compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 FE. Now, the back is glass, and the frames are aluminum, instead of plastic. Samsung also wanted to maintain the distinctive design of the camera, where the sensors protrude individually from the rear glass, as well as the resistance to water and dust. This S23 FE, in particular, includes IP68 certification.
The front also maintains a design line very similar to the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, with minimal frames and an on-screen camera located in the center. The panel specifications are also similar. We find, therefore, a screen 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2Xwhich includes a Full HD+ resolution and an adaptive refresh rate that varies between 60 and 120 Hz.
Two processors depending on the market and triple camera with telephoto sensor
One of the main differences of this Galaxy S23 FE compared to the rest of the S23 series models is the processor. In this case, the smartphone mounts a chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 1while in some regions, such as Europe, it comes with the Samsung Exynos 2200. They are two very similar processors, so the performance is barely distinguishable by the user.
They also arrive accompanied by 8 GB of RAM, as well as with 128 or 256 GB of internal storage. All this, with a 4,500 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE also has fast charging and wireless charging.
Regarding the cameras, the Samsung Galaxy S23 has a three-lens system whose primary sensor has a resolution of 50 megapixels. Also included is a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, as well as an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor capable of taking photos with a up to 3x optical zoom.
New Galaxy Tab S9 FE and S9 FE+ and Galaxy Buds FE
In parallel, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S9 FE and S9 FE+. Also the Galaxy Buds FE, which seem to serve as a perfect complement to this new Galaxy S23 FE. Samsung tablets arrive with 10.9-inch screens in the base model, and 12.4-inch screens in the Plus variant; in both cases, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, instead of the 120 Hz included in normal models.
Like the Samsung Galaxy S2 FE, the tablets are water resistant: they have an IP68 certification. They also arrive with a processor Exynos 1380 and with compatibility with the S Pen, which is included in the box.
The Galaxy Buds FE, on the other hand, include a design very similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus, as well as very similar features. The most notable thing about these headphones is the active noise cancellation, as well as its battery, which lasts up to 6 hours. Of course, they do not have wireless charging, and they are only available in two colors: black and white.
