Rumors lately suggested that Samsung had scrapped an FE model for the Galaxy S22 series, but new unofficial information says there might be a chance for such a model. That’s because Samsung wouldn’t have anything to do with the new Exynos 2300 processors, which it will no longer use for the Galaxy S23 lineup, and with the cancellation of the Galaxy A74, it could have a free slot in its portfolio for 2023.
Samsung could launch the Galaxy S22 FE shortly after the S23
It looks like Samsung could hold two Galaxy Unpacked launch events within a week of each other. The first, would take place on February 1 in the US, where we could see the new Galaxy S23 models, but seven days later, on February 8, another Galaxy Unpacked could be held, this time in South Korea.
Two Exynos 2300-powered devices could be unveiled at this event, both from the FE (Fan Edition) “family” of devices. The first would be the Galaxy S22 FE, a model we didn’t think Samsung would release again, having gone so long without any news about it. It will be a replacement for the Galaxy A74, the top model in the mid-range device range. In addition to Samsung’s high-end chipset, this model would also get a 108-megapixel ISOCELL HM6 sensor camera. The advantage of this model, however, will be its affordable price, which will be on the same level as a Galaxy A7X model.
The event concept is being prepared, apparently this would be too long for just 1 time

Also at the event, Samsung could unveil the Galaxy Tab S8 FE, the affordable model of the high-end tablet launched last year. It would also be powered by Exynos 2300.
It looks like the Galaxy Tab S9 series could be moved to the second half of the year, at the same launch event where it will also unveil new foldable devices, which usually takes place in August.
