Samsung has leaked its own latest “Fan Edition” product lineup that includes the new Galaxy Buds FE earbuds, Galaxy S23 FE smartphone, and Galaxy Tab S9 FE tablet. The new products have come to light via the company’s Argentinian website, where a product page for the new earbuds has seemingly launched prematurely — and includes photos of the rest of the lineup (via SamMobile).
On Monday, a report from SamMobile cites specs and pricing re-shared by an anonymous source with it. The Galaxy S23 FE will allegedly start at $599 while confirming the Galaxy Buds FE will be $99. The story lists a larger 6.4-inch AMOLED display that, at 1,450 nits peak brightness, is a bit dimmer than the 1,750-nit Galaxy S23’s screen. Other notable details include a 4,500mAh battery and the claim that it will include a 50MP camera like the S23 and S23 Plus.
Another image from the first SamMobile leak references an October 4th date (with the clock at 12:45), which might indicate the release or announcement date for the Fan Edition lineup. The front of the Galaxy S23 FE looks similar to the S21 value flagship we reviewed early last year. There are still three lenses on the back of the new one, but it now eschews the full camera module bump and only has lens protrusions in the style of the Galaxy S23 lineup.
It’s been a while since Samsung released a stripped-down tablet (it still sells the two-year-old Galaxy Tab S7 FE as of writing). The new S9 FE version looks closer in design to the new Tab S9 family of tablets Samsung recently launched. It seems to have multiple speakers around the edges, plus the same S Pen the S7 FE included.
As for the Galaxy Buds FE, it’s listed to feature 30 hours of battery life with the charging case, active noise canceling, and a new “one-way speaker,” aka a subwoofer. If you’re a true Fan Edition fan, you might not have to wait long to get your hands on these likely less-pricy tech offerings from Samsung.
