Making a special announcement for Galaxy phones throughout the globe, Samsung Electronics on Wednesday unveiled the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE), the newest member of the Galaxy S20 series, starting at $699 for the 5G variant. A improved version of the Galaxy S20, the new Galaxy S20 is more affordable and packs some new features as well.
With a price tag of $700 (₹51,523.99 approx.), the Galaxy S20 is available for pre-order in the US on Samsung.com. The phone will be available globally from October 2 and will come to India at a later date.
“The S20 FE is an extension of the Galaxy S20 family and is the start of a new way to bring meaningful innovation to even more people to let them do the things they love with the best of Galaxy,” said Dr TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business for Samsung Electronics.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: The Most Affordable Galaxy S20
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 865+ chipset – the original S20 uses the SD 865 instead. In addition to the lower price, the new galaxy phone packs a better screen as well. The Galaxy S20 FE offers 6.5-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED screen with a super smooth 120Hz refresh rate.
At 6.5”, the Dynamic AMOLED display sits right between the S20 (6.2”) and S20+ (6.7”). The resolution is 1080p+, which is a bit disappointing as the other two models boast 1440p+ panels. The screen has a HDR10+ certification with a screen refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The Galaxy S20 FE sports 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage as standard (but there’s a 256 GB option as well). Note that the 5G version supports sub-6 networks (both Sa and NSA), the US is also getting a Galaxy S20 FE 5G UW with mmWave – this one will go up on Verizon.com on October 2.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Camera Setup:
The triple camera setup on the back houses a 12MP Ultra Wide camera, 12MP Wide-angle camera and 8MP Telephoto camera- which is a new addition. It has an 8MP sensor (1.0 µm pixels) and Optical Image Stabilization. The 64MP sensor of the S20/S20+ is gone, which means that the FE can’t record 8K video. The third module on the back, the 12MP ultrawide cam, covers 123° field of view.
With a 4,500mAh battery with super-fast charging technology, the Galaxy S20 FE comes in six vibrant colours: Cloud Red, Cloud Orange, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Navy and Cloud White.
