Samsung has instead been focusing on its flagship Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra devices in order to meet the demand for the handsets. The news of this comes in a recent report from Korean publication The Elec.
A rumour that Samsung has scrapped the 2022 Samsung Galaxy S22 FE or Fan Edition smartphone surfaced previously. It has now been reported that the Galaxy S22 smartphone will not be available in a new Fan Edition this year. Instead, Samsung’s Galaxy S23 FE won’t be available until the following year. One of the reasons Samsung decided not to release this year’s Fan Edition of their flagship smartphone is that there is currently and has been a long-standing global chip shortage.
Apple iPhones have consistently carved out a market niche for themselves. Many would-be iPhone purchasers desire to get these devices for less money. If you fall into this category, you may currently purchase the iPhone 12 in India for less money. This might be the lowest price a smartphone has ever been. It goes without saying that the price of the current iPhones will be reduced, allowing more people to upgrade to Apple’s smartphone, as the release of the iPhone 14 series draws nearer. The price of the iPhone 12 in the online and offline markets is currently approximately Rs. 50,000 before the official price hike.
Samsung Electronics previously had a plan to produce 3 million units of the Galaxy S22 FE model this year. However, as the chip shortage continued and sales of the S22 Ultra model among the Galaxy S22 series launched in the first half of the year were relatively strong, Samsung Electronics is said to have canceled the S22 FE release plan. The chip for the S22 FE has been reassigned to the S22 Ultra. So it looks like we will have to wait until next year for Samsung to launch another Fan Edition version of their flagship smartphone.
