Samsung Commits to Galaxy FE Future with S24 Plans

Last year, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S23 FE, which received a lukewarm reception from the market and did not enjoy the popularity anticipated. Rumors are suggesting the possible discontinuation of the Galaxy S24 FE. Nevertheless, Samsung now aspires to expand its product lineup by introducing more affordable options, including smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices.

According to Wccftech, after some initial struggles, Samsung appears resolute in securing a more stable future for the Galaxy FE series. The development of the Galaxy S24 FE, codenamed “R12,” is already underway. The specifics of the new model remain unclear, but it is rumored to be based on the Galaxy S23 series, incorporating some design elements from the Galaxy S24 series.

Samsung plans to release the Galaxy S24 FE around October this year, although there is speculation about a potential delay to November.

In October of the previous year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 FE, which retained the design of the Galaxy S23, featuring an aluminum frame and glass back. The device is IP68 certified for dust and water resistance and was available in “Clear Sky White,” “Mountain Gray,” “Lake Green,” and “Berry Purple.”

The Galaxy S23 FE was available in two versions: the first-generation Snapdragon 8 and Exynos 2200. It featured a 6.4-inch second-generation Dynamic AMOLED display with a peak brightness of 1450 nits and a maximum contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1. It supported a 120Hz refresh rate and Vision Booster functionality. The camera setup included a 50-megapixel main wide-angle camera (OIS, F 1.8, same sensor as the Samsung S23) + 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera (F2.2) + 8-megapixel telephoto lens (OIS, F 2.4, supporting up to three times optical zoom and 30 times digital zoom) + 10-megapixel front camera (F 2.4). It housed a 4500mAh battery, supporting up to 25W wired fast charging and wireless charging capabilities.
