Follow Us

Expanding the Galaxy S20 lineup, South Korean smartphone brand, Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) with flagship specs on board. Similar to the Galaxy S20 series in the western markets, the Galaxy S20 FE is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset and the pricing starts at $699. For the asking price, Samsung is also offering 5G support which we did not expect at all. At that price, the S20 FE takes on the OnePlus 8 and the pressure will be on Chinese brand to price the OnePlus 8T affordably. It seems like the price of the Snapdragon 865 SoC has come down and it could be the reason behind Samsung offering the S20 FE at a lower price. The smartphone could also make its way to the Indian market, but it will be interesting to see which chipset Samsung uses.
