The Fan Edition lineup will give you many of the high-end features you’d expect from flagship devices, but with small sacrifices that were necessary to hit the lower price points — though Samsung did toss a couple of upgrades in with the latest handset. The Galaxy S23 FE features a larger 6.4-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with up to 120 Hz refresh rate, putting its size just under the S23 Plus (6.6 inches). Fan Edition customers will also get a larger battery capacity over the regular S23 at 4,500 mAh rather than 3,900 mAh.
All of the features one would consider essential to flagship devices are found on the Galaxy S23 FE despite the slight downgrades, including a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera paired with an 8-megapixel telephoto camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera; there’s a 10-megapixel module on the front. For reference, the non-FE version of the S23 has a 10-megapixel telephoto camera and a 12-megapixel front camera.
Joining that is support for fast wireless charging, wireless powersharing, and fast wired charging. Connectivity includes Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi 6E, and 5G. Users can also expect Samsung’s Knox security platform alongside the Knox Vault, an IP68 water-resistance build, and Android 13 out of the box. Samsung plans to sell the Galaxy S23 FE model in purple, graphite, cream, mint, tangerine, and indigo colors for $599, which is $200 lower than the base non-FE version of the S23. The product will be available to purchase starting on October 10.
