Written by admin

Facing mounting supply chain issues in terms of chip shortages and better-than-expected demand for its flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra phone, Samsung has stopped developing the upper middle class Galaxy S22 FE model, Korean media reports the Elec Today.

This only matches previous rumors that a The release of the Galaxy S22 FE seems less and less likely as there was no sign of an SM-S900 device in Samsung’s pipeline, while if the world’s largest phone manufacturer planned to release one, it already had it in development. should be with model numbers, software strings, and everything.

Samsung has stopped developing the Galaxy S22 FE

The reason for canceling the 2022 Galaxy FE series does not lie in the fact that the Galaxy S21 FE launched later than usual and arrived in January this year, but earlier chip shortages, industry insiders tip.
Samsung is riding high record Galaxy S22 Ultra sales and since the flagship model uses the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor that should have been in the Galaxy S22 FE, shortages of Qualcomm’s sought-after chipset have forced the decision to cancel the S22 FE.

Initially, Samsung planned to produce 3 million Galaxy S22 FE units as the Fan Edition series has traditionally been very well received by the market. However, its bread-and-butter Galaxy S22 Ultra enjoys unparalleled attention as a direct heir to Samsung’s Note line, which combines an S-line flagship with an S Pen stylus silo for the first time.

Samsung has sold over 10 million Galaxy S22 Ultra units to date, and it’s still counting, so it needs every high-end phone chip it can get its hands on now that it’s decided to mainly use Snapdragon instead of Exynos chipsets.

However, a Galaxy S23 FE release is coming

So the three million processors that were supposed to go to the Galaxy S22 FE will now end up in the Galaxy S22 Ultra instead, and the more Samsung thought about it, the more logical it became to boost the production of its most profitable phone that people are showing. most interested in it, more so that it has now released an FE series phone in 2022 for its hardcore Fan Edition fans to enjoy.

The move would also likely explain rumors that Samsung has been looking around for other processor vendors, such as Android’s most popular chipsets from MediaTek, for both the Galaxy S22 FE and the Galaxy S23 series, which finally decided to stick with Snapdragon and cancel the S22 FE instead.

But don’t worry, Samsung hasn’t completely given up on the Fan Edition series just yet. It will simply postpone the 3 million units planned for the Galaxy S22 FE release to a Galaxy S23 FE launch next year, the report claims, hoping that the chip shortages of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (or, most likely, Gen 2 ) will be resolved then.
