The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE debuted at the brand’s ‘Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan’ event, and comes as a budget-friendly alternative to the flagship S series.
It was only a few weeks ago that we witnessed the next generation of Galaxy S. Packing visual brilliance, industry-topping performance, and ultra-vivid camera setup, the S20 series is most definitely the hottest Android commodity in the market today. However, all this magic comes at a pretty steep price. The South Korean brand understands that price shouldn’t ever be a deal-breaker when looking for a great smartphone, which is why they’re introducing the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, carrying the S heritage further but with a cooler price tag.
Specifications, design & variants
Like a toned-down version of the S20, it retains its form in terms of design. However, it does a bit of quirk with the colours. You can now choose from Cloud Navy, Lavender, Red, and Orange. It packs an end-to-end 6.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O Display with a swift 120-Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, rests a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 paired with an optional 6-GB/8-GB of RAM. In terms of space, you get to choose from 128-GB and 256-GB variants. However, this is expandable up to 1-TB too. It will also be jacked in with Android 11. All of this will be powered by a 4500-mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging and wireless charging. It is also confirmed to be 5G ready.
The camera department, on the other hand, isn’t path-breaking. With a triple camera setup to its rear, it bears a 12-MP ultra-wide, a 12-MP wide-angle, and an 8-MP telephoto lens. We’re more impressed with the selfie-side of things; it gets a 32-MP lens upfront. The other thing that gets our attention in the Night Mode. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE also features an in-display fingerprint reader, so you can make the most of the screen.
Retail price and launch date
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE will go head-on with the iPhone SE, the OnePlus Nord, and other budget-friendly competitors in its league. It is expected to retail at a starting price of S$699 for 5G, and is available for pre-orders on Samsung.com. It will officially be retailed starting Oct 2, 2020.
