Samsung‘s next Fan Edition (FE) smartphone, the Galaxy S24 FE, may be slightly delayed. Current developments suggest the device will arrive late in 2024 or early 2025. The company launched the Galaxy S23 FE in October last year.

Galaxy S24 FE may arrive later than expected

Samsung has yet to give its FE lineup a fixed launch schedule like the Galaxy S flagships and Galaxy Z foldables. New S series models arrive early in the year, while foldables are refreshed in July or August. We cannot say the same for the FE lineup. The Galaxy S20 FE, the first model in this series, debuted in September 2020. Samsung followed up with the Galaxy S21 FE in January 2022.

We never got a Galaxy S22 FE, while the Galaxy S23 FE arrived in October 2023. Ideally, the Galaxy S24 FE should debut in September or October this year. However, there is little chance of that happening. The rumor mill has yet to churn out a lot of information about the phone, suggesting that it is in a very early stage of development. As such, the launch may be delayed to late 2024.

According to GalaxyClub, Samsung could even push the Galaxy S24 FE to an early 2025 release. The publication says the company is developing the device under the codename R12, which is in line with previous models in the lineup—the Galaxy S23 FE was R11, Galaxy S21 FE was R9, and Galaxy S20 FE was R8 (which means the canceled Galaxy S22 FE was R10).

This is all we know about the Galaxy S24 FE today. Rumors have hinted at beefy specs (more on that later) but not many credible sources have backed those. What we can say for sure is that Samsung has a new FE phone in the pipeline. Unless the company changes its mind in the coming months, the device will see the light of day later this year or early 2025. We will keep you posted.

Rumored specs hint at a solid phone

An X tipster recently shared the alleged key specs of the Galaxy S24 FE. While we can’t vouch for the authenticity of the specs, they certainly hint at a solid phone. The device will reportedly feature the Snapdragon 8 gen 3 or Exynos 2400, the same chipset that powers the Galaxy S24 flagships. Samsung plans to offer up to 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage, up to 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and a 4500mAh battery, likely with 25W charging. More details are awaited.
