The notorious leakster @OnLeaks AKA Steve Hemmerstoffer has shared a collection of Galaxy S20 FE — which stands for Fan Edition — renders in collaboration with Indian site PriceBaba. The naming can sound a little strange, as we saw a Galaxy S10 cut-price appear under the “Lite” moniker last year. This upcoming device is effectively the under a new name Galaxy S20 Lite.
This time around it seems that Samsung plans to refer to this device as a “Fan Edition,” which is very strange considering that the Galaxy S20 series sales were not all that impressive. As for the design, it looks more or less like you’d expect a cheaper flagship line version would be.
This should range between 6.4 and 6.5-inch, with a prominent central punch-hole notch on what this time around appears to be a flat display. The bezels, with a sizeable chin, are not quite as slimline as their more expensive sibling. The design of glass sandwich may also rely heavily on plastic to help hold down the costs.
Because of the Exynos vs. Snapdragon situation we would expect a slight divergence in the internals globally but early indications suggest that the Galaxy S20 FE will come with the Snapdragon 865 chipset, at least 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage.
The Galaxy S20 FE features a triple camera rear setup that is a mystery at this stage but is likely to consist of wide lenses, telephoto, and ultra-wide. It looks as if there is no physical fingerprint scanner, which suggests an under-display option, while a headphone jack has no room.
The Galaxy S20 FE pays a fine homage to the standard S20 model, as you can see from the renders. Thanks to a lower entry price it could even make a more sensible purchase than the smallest hardware of the early-2020 flagship Galaxy S series. Pricing is suggested to start at around $750 with also expected late October 2020 launch date. When a model with only 4 G is released, the price can drop even further.
