Apart from the eagerly anticipated Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldable phones, Samsung was rumored to be working on the Galaxy S24 FE, which will be the successor to the Galaxy S23 FE (review). Now, a new finding has added credibility to the existence of the Android smartphone, even narrowing down the launch window.

Samsung's premium-tier Galaxy S24 FE does exist

As spotted by Tarun Vats' account which was shared over X, Samsung is currently testing One UI builds for the European version of the Galaxy S24 FE. It detailed how these builds come with a S721B prefix, meaning the device should carry the SM-S721B model number in the region. To put things in perspective, the Galaxy S23 FE was labeled SM-S711.

This finding also aligns with the previous leak that allegedly revealed a US variant of Galaxy S24 FE, which has a slightly tweaked SM-F721U model name.

In addition to confirming the existence of the Galaxy S24 FE, we can also speculate the handset's possible unveiling happening this year. This was also suggested by news outlet Galaxy Club, but pinpoints the late fall timetable as the earliest announcement. However, it would not be a surprise if Samsung will officially unveil the device this October, just like how the Galaxy S23 FE was announced last year.

Many of the specifications and features of the Galaxy S24 FE remain unknown. However, it was speculated to deliver an improved design and build with thinner display bezels. Likewise, a newer and more efficient chipset is expected to replace the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 / Exynos 2200 SoC in the predecessor which should offer better battery life in the premium phone.

How would you change or improve the Galaxy S24 FE to make it a worthy alternative to the Google Pixel 8a (review)? Do you wish to see it equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC? Let us know in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
