We may have just gotten word about a Samsung product drop this week. Samsung India was spotted with a new header image, and it teases a launch on Oct. 4.
The image itself is minimalist — a pale green background highlights three camera circles, iconic to Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone camera setup. The text says simply: “The New Epic,” along with the launch date.
But what exactly will this “new epic” entail? We can’t be certain, but it may be the expected Samsung Galaxy S23 Fan Edition. Recent leaks about the Galaxy S23 FE suggest a new palette of brighter colors, including a pastel green color.
Samsung releases its flagship phones early in the year, then typically follows with a Fan Edition before the holiday season. These FE versions tend to trim away a few features but come at a lower price. Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 in February, so fans have been on the lookout for the Galaxy S23 FE.
For now, we’ll have to wait to see what exactly happens in the next two days before Oct. 4. Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google is also planning to launch its new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones on Oct. 4. The Pixel and possible Galaxy releases are just two of many tech-related launches that often happen in the fall, ahead of the holiday shopping season. Apple kicked off this year’s tech season with its Sept. 12 Wonderlust event, where it announced the new iPhone 15 models and the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2.
