Samsung today officially introduced the new Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition). The idea is clear. The novelty is not to compete with the manufacturer’s current flagships, but it is dangerously approaching their equipment.
Samsung listened to customers when designing this model. That’s why it also comes with a new display, for example. He also tried to satisfy those who do not want to give a lot of money for the classic models of the Galaxy S20 series and prefer to reach for something cheaper.
Most functions remained unchanged, but some major functions have changed. The RAM value has been reduced from 8 to 6 GB, which in our opinion is not a problem. As part of the investigation, the glass structure was replaced by polycarbonate, fortunately, matt, so the problem with fingerprints should absolutely disappear. He is pleased that the manufacturer has maintained the water-resistance of IP68.
Fans of different color versions will also get their money’s worth. Up to six of them will be available and all of them will also be sold on the Slovak market:
The display offers a maximum resolution of FHD + and the 120 Hz refresh rate has been maintained. The adaptive one is not, it is still the prerogative of the Note 20 Ultra model. The new Galaxy S20 FE is ideal for those who do not like the curved display. She has it straight. The diagonal of the display is 6.5 inches.
Snapdragon and Exynos, just choose
The battery is ensured by a battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh. So it’s as big as the Galaxy S20 Plus. And most interestingly, the novelty will come on the market in both 4G and 5G versions.
These versions also differ in the processor used. While the 4G version is offered by the Exynos 990, the model with 5G connectivity was given the Snapdragon 865. You pay an extra hundred for it, and in addition to the mentioned 5th generation networks, you get slightly higher performance and probably longer battery life.
An excellent step on the part of Samsung, this should have been done in the case of flagships as well, and let the customer decide.
The 3.5 mm audio jack is not on the body and there will be no headphones in the package. As for the photo equipment, the main sensor together with the ultra-wide-angle has not changed compared to the Galaxy S20.
Also, all the software tweaks offered by the more expensive sibling are still available. The front camera lens has changed. It has a new resolution of 8 megapixels (Galaxy S20 has 64 MP). However, it offers a triple optical zoom, while the 64 MP sensor in the S20 only zooms in with a digital viewport.
Fast charging with a power of 25 W is available, but you will only find a 15 W adapter in the package. The 25 W can be purchased for the price of 27 euros.
Wireless charging with a maximum output of 15 W has not been forgotten either, and reverse wireless charging is also available.
Pricing and Availability of Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
The version with Snapdragon and 5G support will be sold in Europe for a recommended price of 749 euros. A cheaper variant with an Exynos processor and 4G connectivity will cost you 649 euros. Both versions offer 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, differing only in the chipsets used.
