Announcement. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) - junior at the price of senior (plus underwater unboxing)

Haha. I'm so used to the fact that all sorts of Editions are not, by and large, separate devices that I almost automatically glued the Galaxy S20 FE with the usual Galaxy S20 in our database. But no. A completely separate apparatus. The screen size sits between the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 +. Positioning - the youngest, weaker than both of them.

Curious with the price it turned out. Officially, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition costs ₽49,990 ($ 655) - ten thousand less than the S20 and fifteen thousand less than the S20 +. The trick is that in small stores the same S20 can be easily found even a little less than fifty dollars. And the S20 + is just a smidge of fifty dollars more. If you don't believe it, go to Yandex.Market (S20, S20 +).

The worst simplification in the Galaxy S20 FE bycompared to the regular S20, it is a telephoto camera. We installed a simpler 8 MP module instead of 64 MP. The main camera, apparently, is exactly the same - 12 MP and all performance characteristics are the same (f / 1.8, 79 °, 1.8μm). The wide-angle camera has the same number of megapixels (12), but the specifications are slightly different. The front camera is different too. Well, at least megapixels in the FE suddenly became much more - 32 MP versus 10 MP.

The hardware is the same as in the older S20. Those. flagship and powerful. Either Exynos 990 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Smartphones on Exynos and without support for 5G networks will be officially supplied to Russia.

Memory. One option. 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of constant. (S20 has 8 + 128GB). Support for Micro-SD memory cards is there, but the tray is hybrid.

Super AMOLED 2X screen 6.5 ″, resolution 1080 × 2400 (405 ppi). The screen is smaller and the resolution is more modest than that of the S20 (6.2 ″, 566 ppi), but the difference in resolution with the naked eye is hardly noticeable. Screen refresh rate - up to 120 Hz.

Battery of sufficient capacity, 4500 mAh. There is fast charging (25 W), wireless, reversible - everything as a flagship should.

Of course, Wi-Fi 6 and NFC are also available.

Housing. Mmm! Matt! The screen is flat! Colors for every taste! Plus IP68 - just like I love it!

We are waiting for the appearance in small stores at a price lower than the official one.

For dessert - the promised underwater unpacking. This is our T-Mobile show off. It turned out nicely, test.
