Samsung’s S20 series of smartphones as of now include the regular Galaxy S20, an S20 plus and the S20 Ultra. Soon, there is going to be a new addition to the series; in the form of the S20 FE previously called the Galaxy S20 Lite. The smartphone was previously spotted at the 3C certification back in August; and also appeared on Geekbench in the month of July. Previously, PriceBaba in collaboration with @OnLeaks also offered clear high-resolution images; of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, revealing everything in terms of design. Now, additionally, both 4G and 5G variants of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE have appeared on the Bluetooth SIG certification site.
According to the certifications listing, the SM-G781V, SM-G781U1_DS and SM-G781W models have been associated with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE based on different carriers in the US such as Verizon. As of now, the smartphone will launch in both 4G and 5G variants depending on the market. Isolated from the name and model numbers, the Bluetooth SIG certification only tells us that the forthcoming device will support Bluetooth 5.0.
S20 FE RUMORED SPECIFICATIONS
The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will bring some of the characteristics of the vanilla Galaxy S20. That includes the flat AMOLED display with a centred punch-hole. This choice of design is recurring on Galaxy smartphones, and if you’re not a fan of asymmetrical cutouts then you’ll probably appreciate this choice. Worth noting that the S20 FE doesn’t have the slimmest bezels in the market, but that’s better than most of the mid-range phones out there. The handset reportedly comes with a metal frame feature a chrome-like finish as seen in the images.
Gizchina News of the week
According to the leaked renders, the Galaxy S20 FE will have a slightly smaller display than the S20+. The panel will have between 6.4 to 6.5-inches. The device is coming in six distinct colourways to continue Samsung’s tradition of offering multiple colourways. One thing that still remains a mystery is whether all FE models will use the Exynos 990 chipset or will there be ones with the Snapdragon 865 chipset. After all, it could also affect the availability of 4G and 5G connectivity. There are several regions that get only the Exynos variants of the main Galaxy S20 series. So having a Snapdragon 865 SoC Galaxy S20 FE certainly will make it be more attractive for those who aren’t fans of Samsung’s chipset division.
Other rumoured specifications include a punch-hole camera aligned in the center and a square-ish triple-camera setup. The main camera setup will comprise a 12MP primary, 12MP ultrawide, and 8MP telephoto units. The phone will have its power button and volume rocker aligned on the right side. The USB-C port is placed at the bottom while the SIM tray rests at the top. Other rumored specs include IP68 dust and water resistance as well as an excellent 4,500mAh battery. The smartphone also comes with fast-charge technology, likely 25W charging.
