This new leak is coming from the notable tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). It looks like the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (or Galaxy S20 Lite) will make use of the Sony IMX555 sensor for its primary rear-facing camera. This is the same camera sensor that we saw with Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. This makes sense considering we already know the primary sensor is going to be a 12MP one. The Sony IMX555 sensor comes with 12MP resolution and is a 1/1.76-inch sensor featuring with dual-pixel PD autofocus and 1.8µm pixels. It would be interesting to see whether we will see the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in the device or not.

Considering previous reports, the S20 Fan Edition will feature a triple rear camera module. The setup will consist of a 12MP primary sensor, 12MP ultrawide lens, and an 8MP telephoto sensor. The telephoto lens will also feature 3x optical zoom capabilities. For selfies, we’re looking at a single 32MP front snapper. Before the last week’s report, we’re expecting the primary rear sensor to be the 50MP ISOCELL Bright GN1 50 one.
To recall, the smartphone will arrive with either 6.5-inch or 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel. The display will have a Full HD+ resolution along with a 120Hz refresh rate. We will also see the in-display fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, it will run on the latest flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with 128GB onboard memory. It will also make use of a 4,500 mAh battery with the support of 45W fast charging. Other specifications include Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 6, LTE, and USB Type-C port. We might also see the IP68 rating in the Fan Edition as well. Coming to the pricing, various reports suggest that the device will set back around $750.
