Samsung precipitated confusion firstly of the yr with the discharge of the Galaxy S21 FE shortly earlier than the presentation of the brand new S22 sequence. In keeping with the newest data, the successor mannequin, which is the fan version of the S22 sequence, is not going to be launched. Thus, the producer needs to make sure the manufacturing of one other mannequin.
- Galaxy S22 sequence is not going to get a fan version.
- Capability is to be put into the manufacturing of the S22 Extremely as a substitute.
- Technique already determined in line with “The Elec”.
Apparently, Samsung is not going to add a fan version to the Samsung Galaxy S22 sequence fashions. That is in line with data from the Korean information website, The Elec. This choice is claimed to be justified by the continuing chip disaster, which additionally impacts giant producers like Samsung. In keeping with The Elec, the freed-up capacities will profit the manufacturing of the S22 Extremely.
Samsung’s present flagship not solely scored very effectively in our evaluation, however as probably the greatest smartphones of the yr with a stylus, it is usually a super successor to the Word sequence. For the reason that Extremely mannequin seems to be extra profitable for Samsung regardless of the dearth of chips, the producer may be betting on the fitting horse. Nonetheless, the “fan editions” nonetheless play a task in Samsung’s future plans.
An S23 FE continues to be mentioned to be in planning
The Elec additionally discovered that Samsung is relying on the success of an S23 FE—Samsung needs to promote three million models of this mannequin subsequent yr. So, if you’re a fan of the producer’s fan editions, you’ll have to use your present smartphone for a while as a result of the S23 FE might be launched—in a greatest case state of affairs—within the fall of 2023 and within the worst case state of affairs in early 2024.
General, it’s astonishing how a lot Samsung’s technique is coming aside on the seams as a result of chip scarcity. This primary turned clear with the much-too-late launch of the Galaxy S21 FE, which fell brief earlier than the presentation of the present S22 sequence. At the moment, I advised you about how nonsensical I discovered this launch date, with Samsung lacking the hype prepare of the Galaxy S21 Fe. The most recent studies from The Elec positively verify my assumptions regardless of optimistic ends in our S21 FE check.
We may be fairly positive that Samsung will unveil its new foldables on August 10 with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and stunning Galaxy Z Flip 4 . The corporate already introduced a corresponding Unpacked occasion. Since we already know loads concerning the new foldables, I’m nearly extra curious if Samsung will deal with the chip scarcity and the ensuing issues throughout the occasion, as a result of to this point, Samsung’s responses to the issues have been fairly complicated and opaque.
Would you be dissatisfied if Samsung skipped the fan version of the S22 sequence? And would you prefer to see extra openness from the producer? Write it down within the feedback!
