It seems that Samsung is preparing to release a smartphone that could be mistaken for the Apple iPhone SE. With a comparatively small housing and a single rear-facing camera, the Galaxy A23e will be a no-nonsense smartphone that also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Reputedly, Samsung will sell the Galaxy A23e for less than €300 in the Eurozone too.

@OnLeaks and Pricebaba have shared render images of the Galaxy A23e, an even cheaper entry in Samsung's Galaxy A series. On the face of it, the Galaxy A23e resembles the Galaxy A22, albeit only from the front. For some reason, Samsung has switched to a single rear-facing camera, eschewing the three or four cameras that the company typically includes in its mid-range smartphones, such as the Galaxy A23. Incidentally, Samsung has not collated the Galaxy A23e's single rear-facing camera and LED flash within a larger camera housing, as is also the case with other Galaxy A series smartphones.

Instead, the Galaxy A23e reminds us more of the iPhone SE 2022, the design of which has its roots in the iPhone 6. According to @OnLeaks, the Galaxy A23e has a 5.8-inch display, which would make it significantly smaller than the Galaxy A22 or Galaxy A22 5G. Specifically, the Galaxy A23e is rumoured to measure 149.8 x 70.7 x 8.9 mm, which is much closer to the iPhone 13's dimensions than the iPhone SE 2022. For context, the iPhone SE (2022) measures 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm but only has a 4.7-inch display.

Separately, the leaked renders show that the Galaxy A23e has a fingerprint sensor integrated within its power button, as well as a larger volume rocker above it. Also, the Galaxy A23e has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, a downward-firing speaker and a waterdrop notch coupled with a thick bottom display bezel. Purportedly, the Galaxy A23e will be available 'shortly'; no firm date has been provided yet. Allegedly, the Galaxy A23e will retail for less than €300 and will be available in blue, black and white colour options. Unfortunately, other details remain unknown at this stage, including many of its specifications.
