SAMSUNG fans looking to upgrade will soon be able to get the beauty of the Galaxy S23 without having to pay the higher price tag.

The tech giant is preparing to introduce a lighter version of the popular Android handset this month.

And it’ll cost £599 versus £849 for the price of the standard Galaxy S23, saving you £250.

But most people won’t be able to tell the difference on the outside as they both look so alike.

Of course, the specs on the inside are scaled back slightly to make it cheaper.

The S23 FE is a bit bigger and heavier, but the screen is also wider at 6.4-inches and they have the same resolution, 2,340 by 1,080 pixels.

They both sport an under-display fingerprint sensor too, but the S23’s uses slightly newer and better technology.

The S23 has a much more powerful chip to keep things running smoothly on the inside as well.

And while the S23 FE’s battery is bigger it doesn’t last quite as long as its older sibling.

Both have a 50-megapixel main camera, but the main S23 has more extras like a better telephoto lens.

Samsung is releasing four S23 FE colours: mint, cream, purple and graphite.

The firm has already launched the phone across Asia and the US.

Now it looks to be coming to Europe, starting with France on December 8.

The UK is expected to follow very soon.
