Samsung has unveiled an updated and discounted version of its flagship device from the beginning of the year - and this time it seems that the whole world will be able to enjoy a 5G version with superior performance from home Qualcomm Compared to those of the Exynos family chips
TheGalaxy The S20s that arrived in Israel (and dozens of other countries in the world) last March were quite advanced and interesting, and even gained handsome popularity and success, although it was harder than ever to ignore that they were not the absolute spearhead Samsung has to offer - independent reviews soon proved that chips The Exynos 990 found in some of these flagship devices delivers less good results in a variety of features compared to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chips, with a greater decrease in performance over time, higher power consumption which translates into increased heating and life. battery There are even fewer differences in the quality of image processing in photographs.
Unfortunately, Samsung did not give users the option to choose on the matter - from the manufacturer's point of view, all S20 models from around the world were exactly the same with the same pricing, despite the actual differences, so that Israeli users who coveted one of the models with Snapdragon 865 were able to get what they wanted only with a dedicated purchase from stores in North America (or China and Korea) with no small addition to the official cost.
Now we come to the modelGalaxy The updated and discounted S20 FE (or Fan Edition), this time without the reinforcement of the brothers Galaxy S20 Plus andGalaxy S20 Ultra, with the potential to solve at least the problem described in the previous paragraphs: The brand's comeback includes a Super screen AMOLED Larger 6.5-inch with a more modest 1,080 × 2,400 pixels resolution, up to 120 Hz refresh rate, 3.1GB or 128GB fast internal UFS 256 storage along with 6GB or 8GB of dynamic memory, stereo speakers, an in-screen optical fingerprint scanner , Dual-channel 802.11ax Wi-Fi connectivity, enlarged 4,500mAh internal battery, IP68 protection against water and dust - and chip Snapdragon 865 octagon as a world standard for the versions5G Of the product.
It is worth noting that the Exynos 990 is still with us, and will be offered as part of the 4G version of theGalaxy S20 FE at a reduced starting price of about 630 euros in Europe (compared to a starting price of 730 euros for the version5G With the chip from Qualcomm) - but given that the tender5G The Israeli has ended, the deployment of the networks is in progress and even the day when the official approval is received and modern technology is officially activated feels close, there seems to be a good reason to estimate that the official representative of the Korean giant will choose to bring the version5G Preferred, with or without assistance from the 4G version in question.
The S20 FE will hit stores in many countries around the world in early October and will offer an improved selfie camera (on paper) with a larger 32-megapixel resolution based on an enlarged sensor, a triangular main photo array with 12-megapixel sensors for standard photography and wide-angle photography In addition, an 8-megapixel sensor for close-up photography, with a choice of six different shades for the back, which this time will be made of plastic (next to a basic aluminum frame) and not glass as inGalaxy The original S20.
The price is cheaper, the casing radiates a little less luxury, the screen is larger but with a lower resolution, the battery swells and the chip is different - is this the right recipe that will make theGalaxy S20 FE for a better and more successful product, or further evidence that Samsung is losing direction? Let's decide in the comments.
