Samsung Galaxy S23 FE: Leaks Suggest Dual Chipset Variants for Global and U.S. Markets


  • The Galaxy S23 FE is set to be launched as the successor to the Galaxy S21 FE.
  • Leaks suggest that the device may be marketed as the S23 FE, deviating from the expected S22 FE.
  • Geekbench listings reveal two different variants with distinct chipsets for the global and U.S. markets.

S23 FE Dual Chipset Variants for Global and U.S. Markets

Samsung recently introduced a new variant of the Galaxy S21 FE in India, featuring the powerful Snapdragon 888 chipset. Now, attention is shifting to the next device in the lineup. Interestingly, leaked information suggests that the upcoming device may be known as the Galaxy S23 FE, surprising many who anticipated it to be the S22 FE.

While an exact launch date is yet to be confirmed, Geekbench listings have provided some insight into the device’s potential variations for different markets. The first listing, revealed earlier this month, refers to a Samsung device with the model ID ‘SM-S711B.’ This variant is expected to be available in Europe, Asia, and other non-U.S. markets. It is powered by the Exynos 2200 SoC, featuring a tri-cluster architecture with a maximum clock speed of 2.8GHz. The listing also mentions an integrated Xclipse 920 GPU. This variant is equipped with 8GB of RAM, although it remains unclear if Samsung will offer a higher-end model with more memory.

The latest Geekbench listing pertains to a variant codenamed ‘Samsung SM-S711U1.’ Unlike the previous model, this version is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, referred to as ‘motherboard Taro’ on Geekbench. Similar to the Exynos model, this variant also boasts a tri-cluster CPU but operates at a slightly higher clock speed of up to 3GHz. It also includes 8GB of RAM. The ‘U’ in its model name suggests that this variant is intended for the U.S. market. Both listings confirm that both variants will run on Android 13.

S23 FE Potential Camera Upgrade and Consumer Response

Limited information is currently available about the Galaxy S23 FE. However, a previous leak hinted at the possibility of a 50MP main camera, representing an improvement over the 12MP primary sensor found in the S21 FE. While the Geekbench listings should be taken with caution as they are susceptible to manipulation, if they prove accurate, it will be intriguing to observe consumer reactions to Samsung’s decision to offer different chipsets for different markets. This approach had faced criticism in the past when the company launched Exynos-powered devices globally while offering Snapdragon-powered models exclusively in the U.S.
