Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: What to expect
When the Galaxy S20 FE does appear, expect a flagship with a 6.5-inch, 120Hz display, a speedy Snapdragon 865 processor and a three lens camera led by a 12MP shooter. You'll likely be getting the same seamless Infinity-O display as the standard S20, just at a lower full HD resolution.
The S20 FE will stand out from its more premium sibling thanks to a variety of eye-catching color options. Based on leaks, those include navy, red, gold, green, pink and white, which gives you a few more vibrant choices than the Cosmic Gray, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink of the standard S20. But perhaps the S20 FE's biggest draw will be its price, which is expected to come in at as low as $699 — a big drop from the Galaxy S20's starting cost of $999.
And it makes sense for Samsung to be aggressive. With the iPhone 12, OnePlus 8T and Pixel 5 all set to launch in the coming months at relatively affordable prices, there's never been more competition in the flagship smartphone space.
