New Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G Variant Debuts with Snapdragon 865 and Competitive Pricing

Samsung quietly unveiled an LTE edition of the Galaxy S20 FE in Europe yesterday. The new Galaxy S20 FE 4G uses a Snapdragon chip instead of Exynos silicon. Save for the connectivity, Galaxy S20 FE 4G is the same phone as its 5G sibling. Here’s a quick breakdown. 

First things first, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G has the Snapdragon 865 at its heart but without the external 5G X55 modem baked into it. This new LTE phone will replace the Galaxy S20 4G powered by Exynos 990 as it’s being taken off sale promptly. That leaves the S20 Fan Edition 4G the only LTE device in the S20 lineup.

Its internal hardware is hooked up to a 4500 mAh battery that fast-charges at 25W over wired and 15W wirelessly. You get 6GB/8GB of memory for multitasking, support for NFC, dual stereo speakers, and fast UFS 3.1 storage in 128GB/256GB options.

The S20 FE 4G comes in a wide color palette: Cloud Navy, Cloud Mint, Cloud Red, Cloud Lavender, Cloud White, and Cloud Orange. The shell is plastic with a satin matte finish, protected with an IP68 rating at an affordable Samsung mobile price tag. Out on the front, the screen is flat and features slim bezels and a centered pin-hole cutout for the front camera.

This selfie camera has a 32MP sensor behind it. There’s a triple camera on the back that uses a 12MP wide lens, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and an 8MP telephoto lens. It can zoom in 3x without losing quality; with software magic, the zooming is extended to 30x. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE LTE’s camera supports night mode, single take, and multiple portrait shooting modes.

For our readers out of the loop, the original S20 Fan Edition was plagued with screen-flickering issues that remain unresolved even after several security patches. It would be a no-brainer for Samsung to sidestep any screen issues for this new 6.5” OLED display that refreshes at a smooth 120Hz. The new Galaxy S20 FE 4G snapdragon edition starts from €630 or Rs. 116,000 without taxes.
