Samsung could soon be adding a new phone to the flagship Galaxy S24 lineup. Following the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra from earlier this year, it looks like Samsung is getting ready to launch the Galaxy S24 FE.

According to a report from The Elec, Galaxy S24 FE’s driver chips are already in mass production by a Samsung supplier — hinting at an early release. For reference, the Galaxy S23 FE was announced in October 2023, but the report claims that the Galaxy S24 FE could launch this summer – between June and August. The report adds a vague number that Samsung is planning Galaxy S24 FE mass production “in the millions.”

The FE series is usually a toned-down version of the latest Galaxy S flagship but with a bigger display. Previously, an unreliable source claimed that the Galaxy S24 FE will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 or Exynos 2400 (depending on the region) chipset. Historically, though, the FE series has featured a slightly older chip than its flagship counterparts.

With that in mind, we can speculate that the Galaxy S24 FE could be powered by the newly announced Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 – giving the phone the latest processing chops without matching the prowess of the flagship S24 series. There’s very little else known about the Galaxy S24 FE.

The Galaxy S23 FE featured a bigger display, less capable cameras, a year older processor, and a bigger battery than the Galaxy S23. Similarly, you can expect the Galaxy S24 FE to offer a less premium build, triple rear cameras, a big battery, and an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.

The Galaxy S24 FE is likely to go up against the OnePlus 12R and the upcoming Google Pixel 8a. It is expected to be priced around $600, which is $200 less than the Galaxy S24.

It increasingly seems likely that Samsung’s foldable phone strategy is aiming for a lower price bracket. Right now, a taste of Galaxy foldables will cost you a minimum of $1,000. However, an upcoming entry-level foldable phone might bring that barrier down to just $800.

5 phones you should buy instead of the Google Pixel 8 Pro

Someone holding the Bay blue Google Pixel 8 Pro.

Is the Google Pixel 8 Pro an excellent smartphone? Absolutely! It’s quite possibly the best smartphone Google has ever made, and we weren’t shy about heaping praise on it in our Google Pixel 8 Pro review. While its battery life isn’t anything to write home about, and the temperature sensor is a bit of a whiff, the sheer quality of the camera, gorgeous design, strong specs, and promise of seven years of updates mean it’s not a phone to miss out on.

But while the Pixel 8 Pro is a very strong smartphone, it’s far from the only choice. In fact, if you’re looking at the Pixel 8 Pro right now, there are five other smartphones you should consider buying instead of Google’s most expensive flagship.

Does the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 work with the iPhone?

Apps page on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 is a popular choice for a smart watch, available in both regular and classic forms. The bright, vibrant display and improved battery life to keep going all day offer an enticing option, even making for a tempting upgrade from the Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch 5.

However, before you buy a smart watch there’s always the sticky question of phone operating system compatibility. To be useful, you need to link your smart watch to your smart phone — but not every option for smart watch software plays nice with every phone OS. Samsung’s smart watch options work happily with Android devices, but if you’re hoping to use a newer Samsung smart watch with your iPhone then you’ll run into some problems. Essentially, the newer versions of the Galaxy Watch aren’t compatible with iOS, so they’re not going to work with your iPhone.
