Samsung manages to sell the Galaxy Fan Edition pretty well courtesy of the price-to-performance ratio the device is offering to the users. Hence, it was expected for the company to release the Galaxy S22 FE in the coming months. However, the company might not do that. According to new a report, Samsung might cancel the S22 FE device.

Samsung might retire FE models moving forward

Samsung in a statement to Sammobile revealed that it has no intentions of launching a possible Galaxy S22 FE or any other Fan model moving forward. One likely reason is, that the South Korean giant didn’t manage to put the model in a high-end lineup. Also, it is not hidden that smartphone manufacturers are hit badly by the difficulties in the supply chain. That could be another reason Samsung has decided not to continue with this series.

According to sources, Samsung Galaxy S22 FE, which would have featured the model number SM-S900. However, this model number doesn’t exist anywhere. It is worth mentioning that it takes time (months) to prepare and plan for a smartphone. It would have been the case that the letters ‘SM’ would already be present somewhere. However, as previously stated, the model number is nowhere to see. All of this points to one thing, Samsung has no plans to release a FE model for the S22.

It is worth mentioning that, Galaxy S21 FE didn’t follow the launch timeline of Galaxy S20 FE. For instance, the former was supposed to release in the fourth quarter of 2022. However, it didn’t come out till January 2022, just a month before Galaxy S22 series. It could mean that Samsung was not expecting great sales for S21 FE which is why it delayed the launch and thereby made the company retire Fan Edition models.

Samsung might also be confused on which chipset to use on S22 FE

What’s more, Samsung was not sure about which chipset to use in the Galaxy S22 FE. It could have led to this decision. Earlier rumors suggested that both Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22 FE would feature an unnamed MediaTek chipset but these rumors couldn’t stand the test of time. However, it would have made sense to use Dimensity 9000 processors; after all, it is the second-fastest chipset in existence at the moment. Moreover, using a Mediatek chipset would mean the company has to spend less on the chipset, but MediaTek is not that renowned on that global stage. This would have affected the sales of the device.

Now, the only other choice Samsung had was to use Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. However, using it on S22 FE would have affected the sales of all Galaxy S22 models. As they feature the slower Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
