Customers across the globe will be able to pre-order the Galaxy S20 FE starting today. Details about the India launch of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE are yet to be revealed. The phone will be offered 6GB RAM + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB models. Adding super-fast millimeter wave 5G connectivity for the Verizon model brings the price up to $750 (though the carrier is now offering a promotional $50 discount). Finally, there's an optically-stabilized 8MP telephoto camera that provides up to 3x optical zoom and 30x Super Resolution Zoom. The selfie camera is the odd 32MP camera with a f/2.2 aperture that we have seen before on Samsung phones. That was a smart move, as was the way Samsung seemingly managed to balance style and mostly high-end performance in a phone that costs hundreds less than its flagships. In return, the S20 FE comes in a huge range of colours including navy, red, lavender, mint, white, and orange.

The Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) keeps the Snapdragon 865, 120Hz display, and triple-camera setup from the higher-end S-series phones while landing at a much more attractive price point.

The Galaxy S20 FE supports fast wired and wireless charging, NFC, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G. Samsung is not wasting any time with the pre-order phase of this launch for the Galaxy S20 FE. Sadly, the S20 FE doesn't have a headphone jack either, but considering none of Samsung's 2020's flagships do, that's not really a knock against the S20 FE.

Samsung reveals new Galaxy S20 Fan Edition and you'll be surprised by the price

It's meant to bridge the gap between the company's mid-range A-series smartphones and the more premium Galaxy S20 line. Though considering the S20 FE's price, that's sort of to be expected.

In years past, a phone like this may have been called the Galaxy S20e orGalaxy S20 Lite Not this time.

"Galaxy S20 FE is an extension of the Galaxy S20 family, created to bring flagship features to a wider audience". Either way, it seems like Samsung may have built one of the best all-around Android phones for the price, so do yourself a favor if you're mulling an upgrade: Wait until we test this thing first.
