In early October, Samsung finally officially announced the Galaxy S23 FE after months of rumors and leaks. Today it is available in the US.
The price Samsung announced when it unveiled the phone was $599, and it’s still there — if you want it. Now go to Samsung.com And try to buy one, you will notice a deceptive increase in price. The phone is listed for $629.99. Sure, $30 isn’t much, but this device was officially unveiled 23 days ago, so that’s more than an extra $1 per day.
Luckily, if you want the S23 FE but don’t want to pay Samsung’s extra price, Amazon comes to the rescueAs the phone is being offered at an original list price of $599. Plus, you can get a free $100 gift card for future Amazon purchases.
That effectively puts the phone at $499, which is very competitive for the thirsty US mid-range market.
The Galaxy S23 FE features a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1080 x 2340 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC at the front, 8GB of RAM, a 128/256GB re-camera system and a triple bar of storage. (50MP main camera with OIS, 12MP ultra wide angle, 8MP 3x optical zoom), 10MP selfie camera, 4500mAh battery with 25W wired charging support. It runs Android 13 with One UI 5.1.
