Samsung's crowded Galaxy S20 series features three different editions, each with its respective 5G variant. The lineup is soon to introduce a fourth ‘Fan Edition’, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, on September 23. The phone leaker @jimmyispromo who published the hands-on photos ahead of the S20 release earlier this year showcased the phone on their Twitter. Here are the details.

The first Galaxy S20 FE feature to catch your eye would be the redesigned camera bump. It’s essentially a thick cube protruding out the back of the device — think the Galaxy Note 20 housing but painted jet black. 

Three cameras are stacked inside this island on Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, reported to be a 12MP main camera, an 8MP dedicated telephoto lens that supports 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP wide-angle sensor.

Combined with 10x digital zooming, the setup can zoom in up to 30x. The front camera still lives inside the Infinity-O hole on the screen but its resolution has been upped to 32MP from 10MP.

Its 6.5” AMOLED screen is bigger than the 6.2” panel on the standard Samsung Galaxy S20 but smaller than the one S20+ has. Instead of the QuadHD+ resolution, the S20 FE reaches FHD+, refreshed at a fluid 120Hz. More to the point, however, the display doesn’t curve around the edges as it does for the rest of the S20 series. It’s flat but with chunkier bezels all around, presenting a more squared-off profile.

Like its previous siblings, the Galaxy S20 FE will also come in two flavors: one with 5G and the other with standard LTE. There’s a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 865 chipset powering the 5G model and Samsung’s Exynos 990 on the 4G variant.

The battery capacity is a decent 4,500 mAh but the performance might be iffy with the Exynos processor. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is more like to land in Pakistan short after it's official unveiling on the 23rd of September. The handset will be shipped with the latest OneUI 2.5, built on Android 11, and is expected to start anywhere from Rs. 120,000 to Rs. 1,35,000.
