Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition said to be an affordable S20 phone, Snapdragon 865 in tow
Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 Lite earlier in the year and brought it to the US shortly after. The company is planning to offer a successor, and new reports claim the phone is on the way, with launch billed for October.
According to Korean outlet ETNews, Samsung is set to launch three sets of phones in its flagship lineup over the next few months: The Galaxy Note 20 series, the Galaxy Fold 2, and the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. We've known for a long time now that the first two would be released in August, but the third is a wild card.
The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is expected to be an affordable offering in the Galaxy S20 series. That sounds a lot like a Galaxy S20 Lite, and it's likely the phone will be branded as such when it's finally released. Supposedly, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 865. Otherwise, it can be expected to offer some feature compromises relative to the flagship Galaxy S20.
