‘Samsung Galaxy S22 FE has been deleted’
Where Samsung released ‘Fan Edition’ editions of the Galaxy S20 and S21, we do not have to rely on the Galaxy S22FE. That’s what several rumors say and thanks to the Korean news site The Elec we now know why the S22 FE will not be released.
Samsung due to the chip shortage, which has been going on since the corona pandemic, have decided to scrap the Galaxy S22 FE. The chips that the manufacturer wanted to use for the Fan Edition are now in the S22 Ultra stopped. This is Samsung’s most expensive and advanced S22 phone, released earlier this year.
Because the S22 Ultra would sell well, the manufacturer has decided to focus on this device and to ignore the S22 FE. Samsung probably also earns more from the S22 Ultra than the S22 FE: the Fan Edition is a cheaper device and the Ultra simply has more margin.
This does not mean that there is no Fan Edition at all. smartphones appear more. The Elec writes that Samsung ‘just’ plans to launch the S23 FE next year. This phone is based on the Galaxy S23, which we expect early next year.
Until then we have to make do with the Galaxy S21 FE, a device that has been for sale in the Netherlands since the beginning of January. The smartphone looks like the regular Samsung S21 and has smooth specifications. For example, the S21 FE is equipped with a 6.4-inch super-amoled screen, triple camera, powerful processor and 4500 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S21 FE has a suggested retail price of 749 euros, but you can now get it for less. At the time of writing, the device is for sale for about 550 euros
