Samsung has just released its Galaxy S23 FE phone, but there’s a twist in the price. When Samsung first talked about this phone, they said it would cost $599. This made a lot of people excited because it was a good deal compared to phones like the Google Pixel 7.
However, there’s been a change. Digital Trends noticed that the phone’s price in the US is now $629, which is $30 more than what Samsung first said. This is strange because usually, a phone’s price doesn’t change so quickly after it’s announced.
Samsung explained to 9to5Google that this price change is because of different phone models. The ones sold by phone companies are $599, but if you buy a phone that’s not tied to a company (called “unlocked”), it’s $629. What’s even more confusing is that stores like Amazon and Best Buy are still selling the unlocked phone for $599. Only on Samsung’s own website is the price $629.
The only thing different about the phones on Samsung’s website is that they come in two special colors. But all the colors have the same price. We’re still waiting to hear more from Samsung about why this is happening.
If you’re thinking of buying the Galaxy S23 FE, Amazon and Best Buy might be the best places. They’re giving a $100 gift card if you buy the phone for $599.
