Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: Samsung's attempt to simplify the concept of flagship phones

Samsung revived the idea of a version of its flagship phone called the Lite in January with the announcement of the Galaxy S10 Lite. After the low success of the Galaxy S20, Samsung is now planning to launch a second "Lite" model to boost sales, but this time it'll use a completely different name. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: Don't compromise on the AMOLED screen الشاشة

Specifications of the smartphone, which will be marketed as the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G instead of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite 5G, show that it has a lot in common with Galaxy S10 Lite When it comes to design.

Where Samsung provided the device with a 6.5-inch Infinity-O screen. This differs from previous reports that the phone will come with a 6.7-inch screen like the one in the Galaxy Note 20Although there are some major differences between the two screens.

Speaking of the Note 20, while the latter includes S Pen stylus support as a major draw for buyers, the Galaxy S20 FE won't. Samsung replaced that by adding an ultra-smooth 120Hz refresh rate like we've seen on series phones Galaxy S20.

It will all be paired with Android 10 operating system and One UI 2.5 user interface. Of course, the phone will be one of the first devices that will receive the update to Android 11 and One UI 3.0.

The front screen is surrounded by very few bezels, next to the small hole that houses the front camera, which comes with a resolution of 32 megapixels.

A flagship phone with a groundbreaking camera

On the back of the Galaxy S20 FE 5G is a large camera module covered in glass, much like the one on the Galaxy S20 andGalaxy S20 Plus.

Reports indicate that the 12-megapixel main camera was borrowed from the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus. These phones definitely produce stunning images, so the same should be expected from the Galaxy S20 FE.

Samsung plans to complement the premium camera module with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto periscope camera that enables up to 3x optical zoom. There is no information about the phone's video recording capabilities or features of other photographic features such as night mode.

Price and date of availability in the market

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is expected to be launched in the last quarter of 2020, before the annual holiday season.

The expected price of the device is from 775 to 800 dollars, which indicates that this phone is not a Lite version at all because of its price, but we can say that it is an attempt by Samsung to launch a cost-effective flagship phone at an affordable price for the largest number of users.

The company is expected to release the smartphone in red, white, green and orange color options.
