A recent Twitter report from a reliable source indicates a significant decline in sales for Samsung’s Galaxy S23 family this month. The rumour suggests a 20% drop in overall sales for the second quarter compared to last year’s Galaxy S22 series.
The decline in sales seems to be because fewer general consumers are interested in buying Samsung’s latest devices than anticipated. Early adopters already bought the new devices by March, but there hasn’t been much interest from other consumers in Samsung’s latest offerings.
This situation is clearly not ideal, and reportedly, Samsung decided to accelerate the launch of the Galaxy S23 FE as a result. Rumours suggest that the Galaxy S23 FE might hit the market before the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Flip5, which are expected to be unveiled in July and released in early August.
If the rumour turns out to be true, we could expect the Galaxy S23 FE to be released in July or possibly earlier. This highly anticipated phone has been a topic of speculation for months and is rumoured to be a more affordable version of the Galaxy S23, requiring less time for development due to minimal specification changes.
Please note that this is an unconfirmed rumour, so it’s important to approach it with caution. According to the rumours, the Galaxy S23 FE is expected to have Samsung’s Exynos 2200 SoC in all regions, a 50 MP main camera, a 4,500 mAh battery, and storage options of either 6/8GB of RAM and 128/256GB. Initially, there were rumours suggesting that it would be released months after the new foldables, but recent information indicates a significant change in those plans. Source
