A Samsung Galaxy S22 FE is becoming increasingly unlikely

Just like back in April, there’s apparently no sign of an SM-S900 device on the hardware or software development front, strongly suggesting such a handset… simply does not exist. If that’s true, there’s a good chance it will never exist, unless of course Samsung is thinking of releasing the S21 FE’s sequel even later than January next year. There’s also a chance the company is secretly working on an S22 FE under an entirely different model number… that no reputable leaker, insider, or tech publication has caught wind of yet, but that’s obviously highly, highly, HIGHLY unlikely.

The Galaxy S21 FE, which was ostensibly planned for a 2021 release during its early phases of development, was instead released in January 2022. This effectively condemned the 6.4-inch to a less successful box office run than its 6.5-inch predecessor, which sold like hotcakes in the fourth quarter of 2020. While we have no reason to assume that a future Galaxy S22 FE model would have the same component shortages as its predecessor this year, SamMobile is currently confirming an unsettling hypothesis previously floated by a little less reputable source a few months ago.

Highlights

  • With the Galaxy S21 FE regularly priced at $700 and up and the “vanilla” S22 frequently marked down from $800 to $700 just a few months after the latter’s commercial debut, one can definitely hope the apparent cancellation of the S22 FE will lead to the S23 costing $700 in its entry-level variant right off the bat. Unlike the actual cancellation story, however, that should be treated as mere conjecture for the time being.

  • Instead, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and… plays dead like a duck, it’s almost certain that the Galaxy S22 FE is dead. Best case scenario, hardcore fans of Fan Edition Samsung phones could hope for an announcement around the same time as the Galaxy S23 family next year, although we’re really not sure that would be best for anyone.
