A prominent leaker on X (formerly Twitter) has posted the supposed prices for the Indian variants of the Samsung Galaxy S23 FE. Accordingly, the base model with 128 GB on-board storage is going to retail for ₹54,999 (~$660 / €620) while the version with 256 GB memory at ₹59,999 (~$720 / €675). And it is assumed these options come with 8 GB of RAM.
In reference, the Galaxy S21 FE (review) debuted at ₹49,999, so the supposed listed price of the Galaxy S23 FE has slightly increased, at least in India. But it should be noted that the currency conversion was different back then with the Indian rupees having stronger rates over the US dollars. Hence, the price of the Galaxy S21 FE was actually pricier when converted to dollars and compared to the Galaxy S23 FE.
Likewise, it is safe to say Samsung could still retain the global price of the Galaxy S23 FE at $699, particularly in the USA. This would also be logical for the Koreans to put a $100 difference between the standard Galaxy S23 nextpit reviewed earlier this year, which is priced at $799 on its base model.
When it comes to the specs, the Galaxy S23 FE is said to be powered by an older Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 as opposed to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the Galaxy S23. It is rumored Samsung may introduce an Exynos 2200-powered in other markets outside the States. Additionally, the device will have a larger AMOLED screen at 6.4-inch alongside a 4500 mAh battery, 25 watts charging, and a new 50 MP main camera.
