Apple has easily brought some of the higher-end features to a lower price point with the iPhone SE. The new Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the answer that will rival other Andoird smartphones at a lower price point.
People would definitely want to have the latest smartphones that can last long. The current economic conditions has definitely influenced the purchasing power for consumers. This new model has taken the approach by focusing on three pillars at an equally-appealing price point.
Cameras, performance, and colours
Samsung has taken the best of the Galaxy S20 series and maybe a touch of the recent Note 20 as well. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC chipset is the heart and soul powering the whole device with latest wireless connectivity and power management.
While a single camera may be the iPhone SE’s shortcoming, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE gives you a trio of camera sensors. Plus, the powerful Night Mode will be present as well.
If a faster responsive display would just be exclusive to higher-end models, you get to enjoy buttery smooth 120Hz refresh rate.
Giving it an extra sense of durability in terms of water and dust protection, the device is IP68 rated for added protection. You also have the advantage of wireless power charging, including reverse charging with compatible accessories.
Although it only comes in two storage options, you can also expand it using a microSD card. Wwhether it’s two physical SIMs or one physical SIM with an eSIM (enabled with software update in select markets based on carrier), Dual SIM is available.
Rather than keeping 5G for select models while also spurring adoption and wide-spread availability, this models supports both 5G (SA/NSA) and 4G LTE. That makes it a truly global phone at this price point.

Where can you get one?
Given the specs of teh samsung Galaxy S20 FE, I’m anticipating that this model will easily be popular for those looking for a great Android device. Pre-orders have opened up across the following markets (you’ll also get the Galaxy Buds+ for FREE).
After planning to find a suitable replacement for my current Android-powered device (Huawei P20 Pro), this new model looks like the perfect fit to bring me back to the Samsung Galaxy S series. I’ve already placed my pre-order for it.
