The Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) is finally here, and Samsung is going hard on pricing. The S20 FE is effectively this year's Galaxy Note 10 Lite and S10 Lite as there are two editions. Samsung has created the standard S20 FE that has an Exynos 990 and an S20 FE 5G, which includes a Snapdragon 865.

The two devices are essentially identical, but there are a few key differences to entice fans to pick up the Exynos 990 model instead. The S20 FE will be available with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage, which is fairly standard for a Samsung flagship. However, the S20 FE 5G will only have 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of storage.

Additionally, the inclusion of a 5G modem makes the Snapdragon 865 model around 15% more expensive than the Exynos 990 one. Samsung has priced the base S20 FE competitively at €633, €97 cheaper than the S20 FE 5G. Meanwhile, the 256 GB edition of the S20 FE comes in at €719. All SKUs will be available in the following colours, though:

  • Cloud Lavender
  • Cloud Mint
  • Cloud Navy
  • Cloud White
  • Cloud Red
  • Cloud Orange

Both devices have a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen, that resolves at 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and a 4,500 mAh battery that supports up to 25 W fast wired charging. Samsung has included up to 15 W wireless charging, too.

The 190 g and 159.8 mm tall devices also feature four cameras. Samsung has included a 32 MP selfie camera, along with a 12 MP primary camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide and an 8 MP telephoto lens. Samsung advertises the device as support 30x Space Zoom too, but the S20 FE and S20 FE 5G are only capable of 3x Hybrid Optical Zoom.

The S20 FE and S20 FE 5G can be pre-ordered from today from Samsung. Some online retailers may not receive units until October 2, though.
