According to a new report, it looks like Samsung has pulled the plug on the development of the Galaxy S22 FE (Fan Edition). In its report, South Korean media outlet, The Elec (via GSMArena), says a chip shortage, combined with increased demand for the flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra meant the manufacturer has no choice. 

The Samsung Galaxy S22 FE was set to be something of a stripped-down flagship, using the same chipset as the Ultra, whereas per the Galaxy S21 FE, Samsung would dial down some of the features on the Galaxy S flagship and therefore give the phone a lower price point.
