The Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition), the cheapest version of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 line, will arrive in Brazil on November 3rd. The date was revealed in an invitation sent to the press. Announced at an international event in September, the cell phone was already awaited due to approval by Anatel.
It must come in various colors, just as it does abroad, where there are options in green, blue, pink, red, orange and white. However, only the 4G model should be offered, since 5G connectivity is still in its infancy in the country.

The price of the smartphone has not yet been released. In the United States, it was launched at the suggested price of US $ 699 (R $ 4,020 at today’s exchange rate), but it already appears in promotions for US $ 599, equivalent to R $ 3,445 in direct conversion and without taxes.
The Galaxy S20 FE brings hardware similar to the dual Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus, but saves on the refinement of materials. The Gorilla Glass 6 glass back gives way to plastic, and the screen loses the slight curvature of the sides. On the other hand, the cell phone maintains protection against water and dust (IP68 certified) and adopts a small hole in the screen to house the front camera, which is 32 MP. At the rear is the triple camera with 12 MP main sensor, 12 MP ultra wide and 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom.

The 6.5-inch screen is halfway between the 6.2-inch normal S20 and the 6.7-inch S20 Plus. The Super AMOLED panel with Full HD + resolution loses the best specifications seen in the high end versions, such as brightness level, colors and contrast, but maintains the refresh rate of 120 Hz. Outside, some buyers have even complained of “touch failure” ghost ”, in which the cell phone executes unsolicited commands. Samsung said it released an update with the fix for the problem.
The manufacturer must sell the Galaxy S20 FE in Brazil with an Exynos 990 processor, the same as the 4G versions abroad. The 5G model features the Snapdragon 865, from Qualcomm. The phone also features 6 GB RAM, 128 GB storage and support for expansion via microSD as long as the user uses only one operator chip. The technical sheet also features a 4,500 mAh battery, the same capacity seen on the S20 Plus.
