Samsung Galaxy S23 FE: Upgraded Camera and Chipset, But Not Quite on Par with Flagship Models

In a swift leap ahead from last year’s Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, the new Samsung Galaxy S23 FE brings significant improvements, particularly in terms of its chipset and camera. However, it’s important to note that it still falls short of the true flagship S23 models.

Advanced 4nm Processing Chipset:

The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE boasts an “Advanced 4nm Processing” chipset. Depending on your location, you’ll either get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or the Exynos 2200. While not as impressive as the “for Galaxy” chips in 2023 phones, this is still a notable upgrade from the Snapdragon 888/Exynos 2100 found in the S21 FE.

Enhanced RAM:

This year’s base configuration includes 8GB of RAM, eliminating the outdated 6GB option. Although you can’t have more than 8GB, this aligns with the S23 and S23+ models. Storage options come in 128GB or 256GB with no expansion slot.

50MP Main Camera:

One of the standout improvements is the upgraded main camera, featuring a 50MP sensor, a significant jump from the 12MP camera in the S21 FE. However, it’s worth mentioning that the S23 FE’s ultrawide (10MP, 123°) and telephoto (8MP, 3x) cameras still have lower resolutions compared to the S23 and S22 models. Surprisingly, the selfie camera resolution drops to 10MP after two generations of 32MP sensors in the FE series.


The device features a familiar 6.4″ Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with FHD+ resolution and a variable refresh rate ranging from 60Hz to 120Hz.

Design and Materials:

The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE measures 158 x 76.5 x 8.2mm and weighs 209g, making it larger and heavier than the S21 FE. Notably, the phone’s body and internals are constructed from eco-friendly materials, including pre-consumer aluminum, glass, and post-consumer plastic sourced from discarded fishing nets, water barrels, and PET bottles.
