The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will allegedly retail at US$699, says a leaker. However, it is unclear if that price is for the 4G or 5G variant of the phone. It will likely be released alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in September 2020.

If recent leaks are anything to go by, Samsung will unveil the highly-anticipated Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) sometime in September 2020. The phone is the Galaxy S10 Lite's spiritual successor, and it is likely to cost about the same.

Twitter leaker Chunvn8888 states that the Galaxy S20 FE will retail for US$699, a mere US$49 more than its predecessor's launch price. The device is billed to come in both 4G and 5G flavors. The price tag is likely reserved for the former.

Whether or not the Galaxy S20 FE offers better value than the Galaxy S10 Lite depends mostly on its hardware. While the latter came in one Snapdragon 855-powered variant, rumor has it that Samsung is planning on shipping the Galaxy S20 FE with an Exynos 990 in some markets. It is somewhat understandable, considering that the Snapdragon 865's astronomically high price.

Furthermore, Samsung's in-house silicon fares quite poorly against Qualcomm's offering. Fans will not be pleased if a 'Lite' version of a phone outperforms the 'real deal.' Lastly, the Galaxy S20 FE might ship with a 120Hz screen, making it a suitable (and cheaper) alternative to the base Galaxy Note 20.
