Fix for Galaxy S20 FE touchscreen issues now rolling out via a software update
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has many things going for it, like its impressive spec sheet and attractive price tag. However, the device seems to have its share of troubles. An earlier report highlighted some user complaints about the phone's touchscreen not working as intended. It appears that Samsung has taken cognizance of the issue, and a fix is en route.
Sammobile reports that Samsung has issued software updates to address the Galaxy S20 FE touchscreen issues. Several users have confirmed that the problem goes away after installing the software with build number G781BXXU1ATJ1 (actual version may vary by region). The update is rolling out to both 4G-only and 5G versions of the device in Europe. A global rollout will likely follow soon. If it hasn't arrived OTA, one can also try sideloading it via services like Samsung Smart Switch using a PC/Mac.
As Samsung's answer to the OnePlus 8T/Google Pixel 5/Xiaomi Mi 10T, the Galaxy S20 FE has a lot riding on it. It is good to see Samsung addressing such problems early, as they can go a long way towards dissuading users from buying the affordable flagship.
