Samsung may announce the launch of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition on September 23, during an online event called “Unpacked for Every Fan”. The new member of the Galaxy S line has already had several specifications and photos leaked by the international media, with emphasis on the triple camera, 120 Hz screen and new color options.
If you haven’t been able to keep up with all the rumors about the phone, don’t worry: we’ve put together a summary of everything we know about the possible launch so far. See below.
Apparently, the Galaxy S20 FE may have the mission and rescue some fans of the brand – especially since the models launched in February did not sell as well as those of the previous generation, something that is due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic. . The new smartphone must be a kind of “economic version” of the conventional Galaxy S20, with some cuts in cameras and screen.
Galaxy S20 Fan Edition must have new colors
The Galaxy S20 line was launched in February with very sober color options. In Brazil, the conventional S20 has blue, pink and gray versions; the S20 + arrived in gray and black and the S20 Ultra only in black. The expectation is that the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will bring a little more color to the family, with new models in green, dark blue and red, in addition to the darker pink (which can be a lilac?).
A few days before the event scheduled for next week, a pre-sale page was accidentally aired, revealing the look of the smartphone. Take a look at the range of options:
120 Hz flat panel
The information shows a flat screen, without the traditional curves (which are less and less accentuated) of the line. The size should be 6.5 inches, with Full HD + resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), instead of Quad HD +. Support for the 120 Hz refresh rate, however, must be maintained, as well as the hole in the display to house the front camera.
The construction must also have IP68 protection against water and dust. The fingerprint reader under the screen would be kept, as well as the USB-C port.
Version with Exynos 990 in Brazil and Android 10
According to rumors, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will be released in two versions: one with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, with 5G support, and the other with Exynos 990 (4G), which should land in Brazil.
There are two possibilities about RAM: one is that the cell phone has 8 GB, just like the Brazilian variant of the conventional model, another indicates a smaller amount, of 6 GB. Storage should also be repeated: 128 GB, with expansion via microSD of up to 1 TB.
Although Samsung is already testing Android 11 in a One UI 3.0 beta program, the Galaxy S20 FE is yet to arrive with the previous version, Android 10, gaining a later update, like all other manufacturer models released this year.
Triple camera with 12 megapixel sensor
The rear camera set of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition should be much more basic (compared to the models announced in the first half). Still, the main sensor of 12 MP (f / 1.8) of the conventional S20 must be maintained. The rest must be 12 MP (with ultrawide lens) and 8 MP (telephoto, with 3x optical zoom).
Features such as night mode, Single Take and super-stabilization are also expected. Selfies should have a 32 megapixel sensor, something similar to what is seen in the Galaxy A71.
The same battery as the Galaxy S20 Plus
If the leaks are correct, the Galaxy S20 FE will have the same amount of battery as the Galaxy S20 Plus: 4,500 mAh.
Although some rumors have pointed to the plastic back, chances are that the smartphone will support 15W fast charging, wireless charging and reverse charging (Wireless PowerShare), which allows you to use the device as a kind of power bank .
Other expected features are NFC, for approach payments, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6.
Price and availability of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition in Brazil
There is still no confirmation from Samsung about the launch of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition in the international market – much less in Brazil. But a good clue that the smartphone can get here is Anatel’s approval, carried out at the beginning of the month. Corroborating the leaks, the model certified here is the SM-G780F / DS, with 4G.
Apparently, the S20 FE will be made official during the event on the 23rd, which will take place at 11am (Brasília time). The model was seen in a catalog by Orange, an operator in Slovakia, for 699 euros, about R $ 4,320, in direct conversion, without taxes. There are also rumors about the price in South Korea: 900,000 won (approximately R $ 4,020). Over there, sales should start in October.
Knowing that the Galaxy S20 arrived here for R $ 5,499 before the peak of the rise in electronics prices, the advice is to prepare the pocket and not expect very friendly prices for the S20 Fan Edition.
