Phones are getting freaky expensive, y'all. Unless you got a really rich daddy — or a wealthy sugar daddy – buying a flagship Samsung phone is quite some financial hit. Samsung has offered a "Fan Edition" of its top-tier phones for a while, making some concessions to sell them at a lower price.
That didn't happen for the Galaxy S22. We don't know why. But it looks like the formula is back for the Galaxy S23. The nice guys at MySmartPrice have gone a step ahead and leaked the renders of Galaxy S23 Fan Edition. This one might appear in your nearby store soon.
It looks just like the Galaxy S23. But hey, if you pay less, you get less. In the Galaxy S23 Fan Edition's case, the front bezels are thicc. We don't know all the specs yet, but the S23 FE is reported to run last year's Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, the same 50MP camera as the smol S23, a 4500mAh battery, and 25W charging.
Keep your eyes peeled for a July launch with the Galaxy S23 FE, aka Fan Edition, aka Poor-Man-Galaxy-Flagship.
