Samsung Galaxy S23 FE was launched in October 2023. It is the Fan Edition variant of the Galaxy S23 series of smartphones, which was unveiled earlier this year in February. The Galaxy S23 FE is available with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC in the US or an Exynos 2200 chipset in international markets. The Indian variant carries the in-house Exynos 2200 SoC option. The phone is available in a single RAM and storage variant and four colourways. It is also offered in two additional exclusive colour options. Samsung has reportedly started rolling out the Android 14-based One UI 6 update for Galaxy S23 FE users in India.
A Sammobile report claims that the Exynos variant of the Galaxy S23 FE has started to receive the Android 14-based One UI 6 update. It is said to be similar to the One UI 6 update that Galaxy S23 series models received recently. The report adds that the Galaxy S23 FE with Qualcomm chipsets are also likely to get the update soon.
