Recently, reports began to emerge pointing to the ‘death’ of the young Galaxy S FE series of flagship phones. In fact, the Galaxy S22 FE (Fan Edition) that was expected this year seems that it will never arrive. Now, a new report from the South Korean media The Electric claims that while Samsung scrapped the Galaxy S22 FE, a Galaxy S23 FE will arrive in 2023.
According to the source, Samsung decided to cancel the S22 FE to focus on promoting and sell more Galaxy S22 Ultra units. In line with the above, Samsung reassigned to the S22 Ultra the chipsets that were supposed to be used in the Galaxy S22 FE chips. In this way, they seek to increase the production of the S22 Ultra.
the cancellation of the Galaxy S22 FE is ‘blame’ for the success of the Galaxy S22 Ultra
Apparently, the S22 Ultra has seen strong sales amid a chipset shortage issue. Its higher price also allows for higher profit margins per unit sold. So the tech giant will try to sell more units of the S22 Ultra to boost profits.
The series will return in 2023 with the Samsung Galaxy S23
Samsung had previously planned to produce 3 million units of the Galaxy S22 FE this year. While the S22 FE appears to have been phased out, the report claims that the Galaxy S23 FE will debut next year. It even mentions that the company plans to produce 3 million units of the S23 FE.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is the first phone in Samsung’s Galaxy S series to feature a native stylus. Notably, annual shipments of the Galaxy S series have been declining for the past two years. However, the company sold 10 million units of the S22 Ultra in the first half of 2022, and expects to ship the same number of units in the second half of the year.
It seems that the S22 Ultra is driving sales of the S22 line. Therefore, its popularity has become a priority for the company.
As a reminder, when Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 FE in 2020, it said that it would release FE variants every year. While the S22 FE appears to be cancelled, this does not mark the death of the series as a Galaxy S23 FE will be available the following year.
