Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: Specifications, Features
When it comes to what sets the S20 FE 5G apart, it is a special phone for those who didn’t enjoy Exynos chips. Instead of the Exynos 990 on the Galaxy S20 FE 4G, the new variant packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip.
However, the differences end here. The phone makes use of the same 6.5-inch flat display with a Full HD+ resolution. The display belongs to the AMOLED class and has a fingerprint scanner, 120 Hz of refresh rate, and a punch-hole for the 32MP selfie snapper.
Moving around to the back, there is a triple-camera setup living inside of a rectangular camera cutout. It comprises a 12MP primary, 12MP ultrawide, and 8MP telephoto units.
The handset draws powers from a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast wired charging. Unlike the recently released Galaxy S21 phones, the S20 FE still has a microSD card slot allowing for further memory expansion.
The Galaxy S20 FE arrived as a special edition smartphone or Fan Edition version of the S20. It’s cheaper than the standard phone and in certain aspects, it’s even better. It was well-received in multiple markets.
