The tipster also hints at the smartphone replacing the Galaxy A74 5G. To recall, a report of Samsung cancelling the A74 5G’s launch and killing the A7x series entirely appeared online. These moves could take many by surprise, as the Galaxy FE and the A7x lineup are almost on par with each other both in terms of price and hardware specification. The previous report also suggests the Galaxy A5x series could be the top-tier Galaxy A-series moving forward.

The leaker RGcloudS points at the camera sensor and SoC coming to the Galaxy S22 FE. It could feature a 108MP ISOCELL HM6 primary sensor and an Exynos 2300 4nm SoC at the helm. Furthermore, the Galaxy S22 FE could retail at the price range as the Galaxy A7x series.

Separately, tipster OreXda hints at the imminent launch of the Galaxy S22 FE and Galaxy Buds2 Live. In response to OreXda’s tweet, tipster Dohyun Kim says, “There won’t be an FE model for S23 tho,” suggesting the S22 FE could be the last Fan Edition from the company, to which, OreXda replies, “Yup. S23 FE is dead.”

This isn’t the first time we heard about Samsung sunsetting the Galaxy Fan Edition. There have been reports of the company ditching the idea of a Fan Edition. That said, we suggest you take this news with a pinch of salt, as it’s still a rumour, and the company hasn’t officially confirmed anything.
