The Samsung Galaxy S22 FE may be on the way after all. Following reports of a cancellation earlier in the year, word on the grapevine now seems to indicate that the Galaxy S21 FE’s successor is on the way, along with the bean-style Galaxy Buds2 Live.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to debut in February and will, of course, be Samsung’s main focus. The company, however, has other popular devices in the works, with a new report teasing the imminent launch of the Galaxy S22 FE and Galaxy Buds2 Live.
The Galaxy S22 FE looks set to launch soon, as a direct successor to the Galaxy S21 FE. That phone debuted in January, and there’s a chance its successor arrives around the same period, which would mean it’s just a few weeks away from launch. Unlike with the Galaxy S21 FE, however, there’s been little to nothing about the S22 FE in the rumor mill. In fact, much earlier in the year, reports seemed to indicate that Samsung had shelved plans for the phone. If the Galaxy S22 FE does launch, however, it will likely be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, or Samsung’s next-gen chipset, the Exynos 2300.
As for the Galaxy Buds2 Live, the bean-style earbuds may debut either alongside the aforementioned Galaxy S22 FE, or the S23 series in February. The first-gen buds launched back in 2020 with active noise cancellation and an MSRP of US$169. The Buds2 Live can be expected to debut at a similar price point.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I’m either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
