The latest word in the block is this We may not see the next generation of the Galaxy S FE series, at least not anytime soon, but what will replace it next? Well, Samsung could reprioritize, according to a recent report by The Dutch Galaxy Club blog provides evidence of this.
This is what the report says Samsung has already made most of the preparations to officially announce a cheaper version of Galaxy S21 FE, which would drop 5G connectivity and only support LTE (4G).
In addition, the chipset is also set to get an older version, abandoning the high-end Snapdragon 888 found in previous flagship phones like this. Galaxy S21 series, and Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 and the Asus ROG Phone 5 and 5s series to name a few. Instead, the supposed S21 FE 4G will rock a mid-range Snapdragon 720G chipset.
To add some context here and understand the scale of this reference, the Snapdragon 720G is the same processor that comes with Galaxy A52 and A72 – Two basic mid-range or low-end phones that are now over a year old.
The bright side is that there are no reports of further cuts. That means the same beautiful 6.4-inch AMOLED screen at 120Hz, 45,000mAh battery, fast charging, camera system and colours.
Why might Samsung downgrade the Galaxy FE?
However, it’s hard not to scratch your head at first when you hear this so-called decision from Samsung. The Galaxy S Fan Edition (FE) aims to be what it sounds like – offering fans good specs with carefully cut corners to make the price more reasonable.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S21 FE had a rough start, as its price was very close ($700) to the actual flagship. Galaxy S22 series ($800) from Samsung. There are also phones like this The Pixel 6, which costs just $600, shows how serious the competition is in this price bracket, not to mention the future The Pixel 6a is said to come with the same chipset as its more expensive brethren. When you look at the bigger picture, Samsung seems to be making the right move here, which isn’t surprising either.
