Notable features include a 120Hz OLED screen, a substantial battery, and wireless charging. Design-wise, the phone takes cues from the Galaxy A series, emphasising durability rather than intricate aesthetics.


The camera setup sees a significant upgrade, with a 50MP main camera promising improved image quality, especially in low-light conditions. The phone also introduces “Nightography” for enhanced low-light photography. The front camera is a 10MP shooter, deviating from the S21 FE’s 32MP.

Continuing the trend of FE phones, the Galaxy S23 FE features a 6.4-inch FHD+ OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and an under-display optical fingerprint sensor.

Design and build quality

The design, while not groundbreaking, offers durability with rounded aluminum edges and an IP68 rating for water resistance. The phone is available in Cream, Graphite, Mint, Purple, Indigo (Samsung exclusive), and Tangerine (Samsung exclusive) color schemes.

With a 4,500mAh battery, the Galaxy S23 FE provides a sizable boost over its predecessors. The phone supports 25W wired charging and wireless charging. However, it doesn’t include a charger in the box.


The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE is set to be available in Pakistan in October, catering to consumers seeking an affordable yet feature-rich flagship device.

While it competes with other alternatives in the market, including earlier FE models and offerings from different brands, the Galaxy S23 FE aims to stand out with its promising specifications and Samsung’s commitment to software updates.
