Samsung Galaxy S23 FE was launched globally on Wednesday alongside the Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy Buds FE. The phone is offered in a single storage variant and is scheduled to go on sale later this month.

Display: The Galaxy S23 FE has a 6.4-inch Dynamic full-HD+ AMOLED 2X display with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. It is advertised as having an octa-core SoC with a 2.8GHz clock speed.

Camera: The Galaxy S23 FE's triple rear floating camera system consists of an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, a 12-megapixel sensor with an ultrawide lens, and a 50-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS).
A 10-megapixel front camera sensor for selfies and video calls is housed in the center-aligned hole-punch cutout at the top of the display, a significant reduction from the 32-megapixel front camera of the Galaxy S21 FE variant that came before it.
Battery: The 4,500mAh battery in the Galaxy S23 FE, which supports two nano SIM cards, has 25W wired fast charging capability through a USB Type-C connector and is capable of charging the device from zero to up to 50% in 30 minutes.
