2 min read

If you’ve just splashed out on a Galaxy S20, look away now. After weeks of rumours and plenty of leaks, Samsung has just announced its S20 Fan Edition smartphone, which gets some mighty specs for under £600. That makes it around £200 cheaper the standard S20 and don’t think for one minute that a cheaper costs means Samsung has cut corners.

This new phone actually gets a number of flagship upgrades including a 6.5in Super AMOLED screen with a slick 120Hz refresh rate.

That should mean scrolling through content or playing the latest apps should feel silky smooth and stutter-free.

Spin the S20 FE around and there’s also a triple rear camera which offers wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses.

In fact, this new phone offers a 3X optical and 30X digital Space Zoom along with the usual night and portrait modes.

Head under the hood and you’ll find a huge 4,500mAh battery along with two processor options.

If you opt for the standard 4G model you’ll get an Exynos 990 processor but upgrade to the 5G variant and you’ll get the power from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 brains – not even the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers that option.

Some other extras worth mentioning include a water-resistant design, Super Fast Charging and Wireless PowerShare which allows the phone to refill other devices and accessories such as Samsung earbuds.

As we mentioned earlier there is the chance to add 5G for £100 extra which might be worth considering if you want access to speedy downloads.

Samsung is also offering the S20 SE in a number of colours including Cloud Navy, Cloud White, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Orange, Cloud Red.

The standard 4G version will cost £599 whilst the 5G S20 FE costs £699 which is pretty good value considering the spec sheet.

Speaking about the launch, Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President, Samsung UK and Ireland, said: “We are constantly speaking to our customers and know there is demand for a smartphone that takes stunning photos and can perform all day, at a competitive price point”, said “Galaxy S20 FE is an extension of the Galaxy S20 family, designed to bring flagship features to a wider audience. Equipped with 5G, we have future-proofed the device so our customers can enjoy the incredible innovation we know this technology will bring to our everyday lives.”
