Samsung makes a new version of the Galaxy S20 FE 4G official
Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE (or Fan Edition) as a version of its 2020 flagship smartphone line rendered more affordable due to some compromises such as a "glasstic" rear panel. It was initially released in Exynos 990- or Snapdragon 865-powered variants - which meant those who would prefer the latter would have had to pay more as it came with the X55 modem for 5G.
In fact, the vast majority of 865-based devices launched in higher price brackets as Qualcomm inexorably paired that same external modem with every release of the processor. Now, however, Samsung has broken that mold with the SM-G780G.
It recently popped up in leaks that painted it as a new Galaxy S20 FE variant with the 865, but without 5G. Now, it has quietly arrived on Samsung Sweden's official website, in a reduced range of this phone's normal rainbow of colorways (Cloud Navy, Lavender, Red and Mint).
Its new sales page lacks a price as yet; however, the phone is likely to go for less than the existing 865-powered S20 FE. It costs 8,490 kroner (~US$1000) at present, whereas the Exynos 990 version is 7,490 kroner (~US$888). Therefore, the phone's new refresh might have similar discounts in further markets.
