Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G product description

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FAE is a 5G phone from the S20 series and is priced below the S20. Still, it is larger with a larger screen and a larger battery. This makes it a well equipped price-fighter and a strong competitor for flagships from the competition. If he succeeds we will find out here

Good screen: cheque

Originally, the S20 FAE was not planned. Samsung was forced to release it because of the Corona crisis. A more economical alternative to the thousand-euro flagships. A device with flagship-worthy features but with a cheaper price tag. Because in times of crisis you can save some money. Samsung has applied a healthy mix of display, cameras and performance. To start with the first one. At the front, you will find a 6.5 inch large and 120Hz fast screen with Full HD+ resolution. That is less sharp than on the S20, but just as smooth. The Infinity-O Display has a small hole in the middle for the selfie camera. It measures 32MP, which is considerably more than the 10MP on the S20. Lovers of selfies beware!

Solid cameras: cheque

On the back of the Galaxy S20 FAE we find three more cameras. Two 12MP cameras for regular shooting and with ultra-wide-angle lens and an 8MP zoom camera with 3x optical zoom and 30x Space Zoom. With these, the S20 FAE has the same camera functions as the more expensive S20, but in a slightly lower resolution. Despite that, it is still a Dual Pixel Sensor that merges several pixels into 1, which should lead to better exposed images, especially in the dark. What we try to say with a lot of words; the S20 FAE has a nite mode. Also the 8K video mode is not lacking what you currently only find in expensive high-end smartphones

Main Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G specifications

  • 6.5 inch large Infinity-O screen with 120Hz refresh rate
  • 12 + 12 + 8MP rear camera with 3x optical and 30x digital zoom (Space Zoom)
  • 32MP selfie camera for sharper self-portraits
  • Possibility to store up to 1TB extra memory
  • Room for 2nd SIM card (Dual SIM)
  • Suitable for future 5G
  • IP68 waterproof housing with plastic rear

Fast performance: cheque

And then there's the performance. Samsung provides this Galaxy S20 Fan Edition with a Snapdragon 865 processor, because that is what 'FAE' stands for. Normally you have to get Samsung with a Snapdragon chipset from the US, because they are not released here in Europe. Benchmarks show that the Snapdragon chips are slightly more powerful than Samsung's Exynos counterpart and are also slightly more energy efficient. Note: the S20 FAE 4G does have Samsung's own Exynos 990. The choice for the Snapdragon 865 is not an easy one; this S20 FAE supports 5G. That is not yet available everywhere, but buyers are prepared for it as soon as it is rolled out nationwide. At home, if you have access to it, you can surf the Internet at a higher speed thanks to WiFi 6 support, and thanks to the 4500 mAh battery, you won't run out of power in a hurry. Charging can of course be wired and extra fast, but the S20 FAE 5G also supports wireless charging. This even works the other way around so you can charge other devices via your phone. The so-called Wireless Powershare.

New Samsung Galaxy S20 FE makes choosing more difficult

Phone news ·

Is it the successor to the Galaxy S10e? Is it the successor to the S10 Lite? Or is it an entirely new product? An answer may not be so easy to give but fact is that the Galaxy S20 FE is here. The Fan Edition is the newest member of the S20 family, one with an affordable price and competitive features.

We start with the price of the Galaxy S20 FE. It starts at 649 euros for the 4G version and 749 euros for the 5G variant. This puts it in the upper premium category but below flagship territory. Yet the S20 Fan Edition will make things difficult for many flagships. Including that of Samsung itself. Also at OnePlus they will start scratching behind their ears because the 'FE' has a very strong price/quality ratio.

All versions of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition)

For example, the Galaxy S20 FE has a flagship 6.5-inch display with a very smooth 120Hz. Samsung calls it a 'Super Smooth-Scrolling Display'. Another flagship feature is the processor; the Snapdragon 865. At least for the 5G version. There is also a 4G version coming out, but that runs under its own Exynos chip. The choice for the Snapdragon chip is remarkable; in Europe, Samsung only releases its high-end Galaxy's with Exynos processors that have seen some negative news items because of lower performance and higher power consumption compared to the Snapdragon chip.

S20 FE camera features

On the back of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition you will find three cameras; 12MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle (123°) and 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom and 30x Space Zoom. Samsung copies part of the camera properties of the (more expensive) S20. Altho the price of the latter has dropped so much that it is approaching the price of the FE. There is a 4500 mAh battery in the device with fast charging and wireless charging. You can even give away power wirelessly to, for example, a Galaxy Watch3 by placing it on the back of the S20 FE

S20 FE price and colours

In terms of prices, the S20 and S20 FE do not differ that much from each other. That makes choosing a bit tricky. Do you want to go larger than choose the FE, do you want something smaller then the S20 is your phone. The latter also has a slightly sharper display image, but then you don't have a processor choice. You always get an Exynos chip. You will also have to choose between six colours: Cloud Navy, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Red, Cloud Orange and Cloud White. Choosing becomes a lot harder.


Galaxy unpacked fan

Samsung holds Unpacked event on September 23rd

Star of the evening is probably the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition

Rumours ·

Samsung will hold a special Unpacked event on September 23rd at 10 am Eastern Time. These events usually mean the introduction of a Galaxy product such as a phone. Most likely the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will be announced there.

'Fan Edition' is a new variant that derives from the Lite edition. There is a somewhat negative meaning to the term 'Lite' and perhaps that is why Samsung was looking for an alternative. The possible September 23rd announced S20 Fan Edition is the successor to the S10 Lite

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked for every Fan
Gather all the fans!

Presumably Samsung will merge the 'Fan Edition' name into 'FE'. If the rumours are true, then the S20 FE will have a 6.5-inch large screen, triple camera on the back with 12+12+8 megapixel sensor, 4500mAh large battery with 15 watts fast charging and inside a Snapdragon 865. These are not features that justify the name 'Lite'. Also because the screen has a fast 120Hz refresh rate.

Galaxy S20 FE 5G colours

Wednesday the 23rd of September we know more and we hear if all the rumours are true. The event will be live streamed on samsung.com. The Galaxy S20 FE 5G will be available in at least four colours; white orange, lavender red, navy mint and white.

Lite makes way for 'Fan Edition'

Rumours ·

Despite the fact that the S20-series was launched six months ago, Samsung is about to add a new model to its line-up. A kind of rebirth of the 'S10 Lite' but with the more friendly name 'Fan Edition'.

Renders of this Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, which stands for Fan Edition, come from @onleaks and are published at PriceBaba. Usually these renders are reliable, except for some minor differences. The S20 FE 5G will be the direct successor to the S10 Lite with many similarities to his other S20 siblings but at a lower price.

The alleged Samsung Galaxy S20 'Fan Edition'

For example, the S20 FE 5G gets a flat screen of up to 6.5 inches with a punch hole at the top for the 32MP selfie camera. The screen edges are small but the flat glass makes them much more visible. On the back we find many similarities to the S20. The glass camera module protrudes a bit and houses 3 different sensors. In all probability this is a 12MP main camera, 12MP ultra wide angle and 8MP telephoto with 3x zoom. What is missing, as with the S20 series, is a headphone jack. You can listen music wireless or via USB-C.

High-end processor

For a Lite model, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G comes with a high-end processor. Perhaps this is the reason why Samsung decided to change the Lite name to Fan Edition. Inside we find a Snapdragon 865. Combined with at least 6GB of RAM, Android 10 and One UI 2.5, this promises great performance. The screen is capable of up to 120 Hz, something we usually only see on expensive flagships. Expect a sales price of around 750 American Dollar, converted to around 630 Euro. When the device will be in shops is still unknown.
