There it is in a wide range of colors: the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE , or the ‘Fan Editon’. It is a spiritual successor to Samsung’s  S10 Lite from last year, or a more affordable variant of the S20 series. Still, there are several models of this S20 FE phone with both 4G and 5G, with prices varying as well. We explain.Galaxy S20 FE

First you have the screen of this S20 FE. Samsung uses a 6.5 inch Full HD Super AMOLED panel, which is a larger screen compared to the 6.2 inch panel of the S20 or slightly smaller than the 6.7 inch screen of the S20 Plus . The screen also has a lower resolution of 2,400 by 1,080 pixels. The screen has a smaller notch in the middle and an optical fingerprint scanner is located under the panel. Samsung also uses a finish of Frosted Glass or a special plastic finish and the phone is IP68 water and dust resistant. The phone also has a 3.5mm audio jack.

Performance and battery

When we look at the engine of this phone, we come across the two different models for the first time. Samsung uses its own Exynos 990 in the 4G version, but for the 5G model, there is Qualcomm ‘s Snapdragon 865 chipset. Both the 4G and 5G variant have different models of storage and RAM. They come with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, or 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage.Galaxy S20 FE official

There is also the battery that has a 4,500 mAh capacity, which is the same as with the larger Galaxy S20 Plus phone. Charging can be done with the included 15-watt charger, but the S20 FE also supports the more powerful 25-watt fast charger from Samsung. The S20 FE comes with Android 10 and Samsung’s One UI 2.5 software shell. The phone will also receive version and security updates for at least three years .


That brings us to the cameras and Samsung uses three sensors on the back. The basis is again a 12 MP camera with an f / 1.8 aperture and the same sensor size of 1 / 1.72 inch. That main camera also uses optical image stabilization and the phone can film in 8K. The S20 FE does have a slightly smaller 12 MP sensor for the wide-angle camera, and it is a 1 / 3.06 inch sensor compared to 1 / 2.55 inch on the S20 and the Plus version.

The third sensor is an 8 MP telecamera, so this phone does not get Samsung’s 64 MP telecamera. Still, the sensor is good for 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom or ‘Space Zoom’. At the front, Samsung is bringing a new selfie camera for its Fan Edition: a 32 MP copy. It is a sensor that not only has more megapixels, but is also larger with its 1 / 2.8 inch size compared to 1 / 3.24 inch on the S20 (Plus).Samsung Galaxy S20 FE official

Along with the S20 FE, a series of well-known camera functions are also making their return, such as Night mode and Single Take. The latter allows you to make a series of photos and videos in a short amount of time and as a user you can save the best images yourself.


The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE comes in a model with 4G and one that also supports 5G, and both are available in a version with 6 GB / 128 GB or 8 GB / 256 GB. The colors of both phones also differ.

Pre-orders for this phone start today and you will receive an extra gift with the purchase of this phone until October 1. You can choose from the new Galaxy Fit 2 worth 49 euros or a ‘Game Pack’ worth 109 euros. The latter includes an Xbox controller and three months of access to the Xbox Game Pass. Thanks to Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service, you can play games on your phone.Samsung Galaxy S20 FE official
