The upcoming Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra may be Samsung's best smartphones this year, but prices will likely reach north of US$1500. That's a bit too expensive for most, and it appears Samsung is set to deliver another flagship phone that will likely cost right about half of that.

The Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra will be the crowning jewels of Samsung's crown in 2020, but they'll come at a cost. Considering the pricing of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Note 20 Ultra will likely cost upwards of US$1500, which makes it unattainable to most. Thankfully, Samsung is working on something a bit more affordable for the masses.

This device isn't novel at all, as there has been news about it. It's expected to be branded as the Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition). For the laymen, it's essentially the successor to the Galaxy S10 Lite that was released at the start of the year. The S20 FE, however, will be launched sooner.

Going by word on the grapevine, the Galaxy S20 FE will be released in September. It's expected to arrive just in time to take on the OnePlus 8T. The OnePlus 8 had an MSRP of US$700, and the OnePlus 8T will likely be priced similarly. The fact that the S10 Lite cost US$650 also indicates that the S20 FE will be priced right around that mark.

The specifications of the Galaxy S20 FE aren't shabby either; tipster Ice Universe reckons the phone will sport a Snapdragon 865, a 120 Hz OLED display, a 3.3 mm hole punch, and IP68 certification.
