Samsung reintroduced the idea of a Lite-branded flagship in January with the announcement of the Galaxy S10 Lite. Follow the poor reception of the Galaxy S20, Samsung is now planning a second ‘Lite’ model to boost sales, but this time around it will use a slightly different name.
Samsung seems to have chosen another 6.7-inch display
Newly published renders of the smartphone, which will be marketed as ‘Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G’ rather than ‘Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite 5G,’ show that it has quite a lot in common with the Galaxy S10 Lite when it comes to design.
Rounding out the front package are relatively slim bezels coupled with a small punch hole for the 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The flagship name is paired with some flagship cameras
Turning the Galaxy S20 FE 5G over reveals a big camera module covered in glass, much like the ones featured on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ models.
Reports point towards a 12-megapixel main camera that has been borrowed from the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. These devices produce some stunning photos, so the same should be expected from the Galaxy S20 FE.
You get a Snapdragon; You get a Snapdragon; Everybody gets a Snapdragon!
Despite constant complaints from loyal users, Samsung loves fitting its European smartphones with Exynos chipsets. But that practice is (temporarily) ending with the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, which will be fitted with the Snapdragon 865 in every market.
Samsung previously used that chipset inside the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Ultra, and Galaxy S20+ models destined for the United States. In the case of the Galaxy S20 FE, it should be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage as standard.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G announcement, price, availability
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G is expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of 2020 ahead of the annual Holiday season.
Rumor has it that virtually every market where Samsung has a presence will receive it. And in the United States, the company’s most important market, it could retail at $799, making it $200 cheaper than the regular Galaxy S20.
Samsung is expected to offer the smartphone in red, white, green, and orange.
