Samsung announces October 4 Galaxy S23 FE release date
The Galaxy S23 FE is coming on the same day as the Pixel 8.
Some of those leaks showed Samsung toying with going head-to-head with the Google Pixel 8, even with the launch date.
While we were skeptical about the launch date, the latest teaser from Samsung got rid of all that skepticism.
Samsung India seems to have released the date early, by updating its X (formerly Twitter) account’s header with a teaser image.
The image features Samsung’s signature in-line camera setup alongside the tagline “The New Epic.” Further, it mentions that it is launching on October 4.

That’s about as an official source as it comes, even if it wasn’t from Samsung HQ.
We also expect the rest of the Galaxy FE series devices, Galaxy Tab S9 FE, Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus, and the Galaxy Buds FE, will also be launched at the same time.
However, it’s unclear if this will be a worldwide launch or if some regions will get devices first.
Samsung has selected an awkward time to launch the Galaxy S23 FE.
