With the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 ultra launched in March 2020, we were expecting another Samsung Galaxy s20 as a more affordable model of the phone. But instead of the ‘Lite' model, Samsung introduced the fan edition this year. Here is everything we know about the phone so far. Samsung has confirmed that it will host another event for the smartphone. The invitation features flashes through many phone colors - but we aren't sure if the event is for Fan edition. The event will take place on 23 Sept 2020 at 15:00 BST. You will be able the watch the event live online at its YouTube channel. The S20 Fan edition is expected to be stored somewhere in October 2020.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan edition is rumored to launch at 900,000 won, which is around £580 in the UK or $760 in the US, both of which are lower than the S20, as expected. As the phone will come in a 5G version, we are expecting a slightly higher price but still under £700. Based on the rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will have the identical design to the vanilla Galaxy S20 but may have a plastic rear side. The device will have a rectangular camera module on the back just like the S20 series and Note 20 series with a 3.3mm punch-hole front camera.
The phone is rumored to have a 6.5-inches display with a 120Hz refresh rate with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution and 407ppi. Samsung has placed an under-display fingerprint sensor for a more refined look with a flat display rather than the curved one and Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the front side. The phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset worldwide, and not Exynos in some regions, though a model with Exynos has now also appeared for 5G. Samsung Galaxy S20 fan edition will have a triple rear camera system with a 12MP as a primary camera lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto sensor. The phone will have an optical zoom up to 3x.
