Samsung, today, launched the Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition). It can actually be regarded as the successor to the Galaxy S10 Lite.
Samsung advertised the Galaxy S20 FE as a ‘flagship’ device, which also explains why it did not use the ‘Lite’ nickname and instead used the Fan Edition. In addition, Samsung confirmed at today’s conference that it will continue to release new Fan Edition devices in the next few years.
The manufacturer confirmed today that it will release a fan version of its flagship smartphone every year. This means that Samsung intends to stick to this strategy, that is, first launch new innovative products with the main flagship model, and then pack most of the features into a more affordable fan version after about six months.
Differences Between Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition and Regular Variant
We can see that most of the features of the Galaxy S20 FE are the same as those of the Galaxy S20 series launched in February this year. Say, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE uses a Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display, which is 6.5 inches, between S20 (6.2 inches) and S20+ (6.7 inches). But the resolution is 1080p+. This screen has also passed HDR10+ certification, and supports 120Hz refresh rate.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has a built-in 4500mAh battery, which has the same capacity as the S20+. It also supports 25W fast charging. But you need to purchase a separate charger because the package only contains a 15W charger. It supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
In order to reduce the price, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE uses a plastic back shell and a flat display. But it offers a variety of colors.
Most Popular Under-Screen Fingerprint Solution
However, there is an interesting feature, we would like to talk about. The Galaxy S20 FE supports the fingerprint function under the screen. According to the official statement of Goodix Technology, the machine uses the optical fingerprint solution under the screen.
Since the beginning of this year, Goodix’s under-screen optical fingerprints and ultra-narrow side capacitive fingerprint solutions have continued to gain Samsung’s favor. They have been commercially used in the Galaxy A71 5G phones and the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 + flagship tablets.
Goodix’s under-screen optical fingerprints are currently commercially used in more than 160 brand flagship models, ranking first in the global market share.
