Samsung Galaxy S20 FE US$599 price tag puts pressure on the OnePlus 8T and Pixel 5
Samsung finally released the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition earlier in the week. The S20 FE is essentially a successor to the S10 Lite and is geared at offering primary flagship features at a more affordable price point. The phone was slated to go on sale in the US with a US$699 MSRP but may actually be had for considerably cheaper.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has now been listed on Amazon US with a price tag of US$599. That's a whopping US$100 less than MSRP. It's important to note that the device on sale is, by all indications, the US version of the Galaxy S20 FE 5G. That means it's equipped with a Snapdragon 865 and not the Exynos 990 seen on the 4G models. 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage also appears to be standard.
The existence of the Galaxy S20 FE 5G with an accompanying price tag of US$599 places some extra pressure on OnePlus and Google with respect to the upcoming releases of the OnePlus 8T and Pixel 5G. The Pixel 5, for example, has been touted to carry a US$699 price tag, Pricing for the OnePlus 8T in the US remains unknown but the OnePlus 8 started at US$699 and it's hard to imagine the OnePlus 8T being much cheaper than that.
