Samsung Galaxy S23 FE Rumors:
You may have heard that Samsung is discontinuing its FE (Fan Edition) series, with the Galaxy S21 FE being the last in the line. However, subsequent rumors stated that Samsung is still working on the Galaxy S22 FE. A few months back, a tipster @OreXda shared that the S22 FE is in the works and will be released soon.
But according to the latest leak from @OreXda, Samsung is now considering to skip the S22 FE in favor of the Galaxy S23 FE. That means the S23 FE will be a direct replacement for the two-year-old Galaxy S21 FE. The latter was unveiled with a Snapdragon 888 chipset and a triple camera setup.
