Samsung will reportedly equip the Fan Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S23 with an Exynos 2200-soc, instead of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor as with the rest of the S23 series. SamMobile reports this based on its own sources.
The Exynos 2200 chip was first used in Samsung’s European S22 phones, however According to SamMobile The S23 FE is also equipped with it. The site additionally claims that this applies to all markets. That’s great, because Galaxy phones in most regions were pre-equipped with the Snapdragon socs, while European models only received an Exynos chip.
With previous S23 models, Europe also received a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Qualcomm announced at the end of last year that Samsung would not use Exynos socs in its Galaxy S23 phones, or at all. It is not mentioned why the South Korean manufacturer has now decided to discard the Snapdragon processor, which is often seen as the best performing soc.
SamMobile also shares a number of Galaxy S23 FE specifications. It will have a 50MP main camera and a 4,500mAh battery. The base model is said to come with 128GB of internal storage, though there’s also an option to get a more expensive model with 256GB. According to the site, the device is supposed to appear in the last quarter of 2023. It will be the first Fan Edition since 2021, when the S22 FE was skipped.
