Samsung Galaxy S23 FE specifications
Sporting a 6.4-inch Dynamic full-HD+ AMOLED 2X display, the Galaxy S23 FE comes with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. It is listed with an octa-core SoC clocking up to 2.8GHz. It is said to be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or the in-house Exynos 2200 chip, varying according to the region of availability, as per previous reports.
The triple rear floating camera system of the Galaxy S23 FE includes a 50-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS), a 12-megapixel sensor with an ultrawide lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. The centre-aligned hole-punch cutout at the top of the display houses a 10-megapixel front camera sensor for selfies and video calls, which is a considerable downgrade over the 32-megapixel front camera of the preceding Galaxy S21 FE model.
The dual nano SIM-supported Galaxy S23 FE packs a 4,500mAh battery with 25W wired fast charging support via a USB Type-C port, which claims to charge the phone from zero to up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. It also supports Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity. The phone arrives with an IP68 rating for dust and splash resistance. Weighing 209 grams, the handset measures 158mm x 76.5mm x 8.2mm in size.
