Until now, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition smartphone was expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC. But it appears that Samsung continues to pursue its well-known strategy of introducing smartphones with different platforms for different markets.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will have an Exynos 990 variant
The device, which has the model number SM-G780F, was spotted in the database of the popular Geekbench benchmark portal. Geekbench confirms that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is based on the Exynos 990 SoC. The tested smartphone is equipped with 8GB of RAM. The previously tested Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition model with model number SM-G781B was equipped with Snapdragon 865 and 6GB of RAM.
The smartphone is expected to be equipped with an Infinity-O display that has FullHD + resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen diagonal will be from 6.5 to 6.7 inches.
We have already reported about a fairly simple camera, which includes sensors with a resolution of 12, 12 and 8 megapixels. The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is rumored to have a 4500mAh battery and is IP68 water and dust resistant.
The price of the device will not be low, according to rumors, the phone will be offered for about $ 750.
Galaxy S20 Fan Edition appears with Snapdragon 865 on GeekBench
Last month, we published a report claiming that Samsung is working on another Galaxy S20 variant dubbed Galaxy S20 FE. The new device is supposed to take over or replace the Galaxy S Lite lineup. Earlier this year, Samsung introduced a Lite version of its flagship S and Note devices. The ideology behind the new move was to bring flagship-grade experience to the masses. Well, since then we have heard a bit more about the device. It has recently made its way to the GeekBench for benchmarking purposes.
Although we still don’t have any official confirmation on the new moniker shift, Samsung is currently referring to the device as Galaxy S20 FE. With that said, it will come in two model numbers namely SM-G780 and SM-G781. The former is for the global variant while the latter is for the US only. As per the listing, we will see the flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset which is not that surprising. Well, the S20 Lite or Fan Edition is supposed to be a watered-down version. Furthermore, we previously saw the S10 Lite with the then flagship chipset as well.
The device appears on the listing with 6GB RAM and of course, the latest Android 10 operating system. Taking about the scores, it managed to receive 737 points in single-core performance and 2619 in the multi-core test. As expected, the listing doesn’t talk about anything else. With that said, we might see some more information in the coming weeks.
