A newly leaked promotional video from Samsung explains what makes the Galaxy S20 FE (5G) the “fan edition” of its popular 2020 Android flagship. Clocking in at exactly one minute, the footage that can be seen below emerged on Twitter several days ahead of the smartphone’s official announcement which is scheduled for this Wednesday, September 23rd.
The number one feature worthy of the “Fan Edition” moniker is the Galaxy S20 FE’s camera, according to the video’s opening. The leak confirms a triple-lens system with 30x magnification will be part of the package. Just keep in mind that figure references a hybrid solution; the actual optical zooming capabilities of the Galaxy S20 FE should be on par with the Galaxy S20+, meaning they’ll combine a 3x optical zoom with 10x digital magnification.
“The Galaxy S20 FE 5G gives you more – for less”
Samsung also touts its constantly improving Single Take AI as an integral part of the mobile photography experience offered by the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. Night Mode also earned a mention, as did a 4,500mAh battery which is identical to the one powering the Galaxy S20+ capacity-wise. Ditto for the smartphone’s microSD card slot, with Samsung’s overall conclusion being that “the Galaxy S20 FE 5G gives you more – for less.”
How much less, exactly, will depend on the market, though a handful of previous reports indicate the Galaxy S20 FE 5G will be available for about two-thirds of the Galaxy S20+ launch price. The only thing this week’s Unpacked is likely to reveal is the availability of individual color variants, which is a bigger deal than you might think as Samsung is planning to launch a full rainbow of models.
