Samsung isn’t done launching high-end smartphones yet. The company had launched the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip earlier this year. The Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 2, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G were launched a few weeks ago. Now, the South Korean smartphone giant has announced that it will hold the ‘Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan’ event on September 23.
The company will most probably unveil the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition during the online-only event. It is a trimmed-down version of the Galaxy S20 and will bring most of the important Galaxy S20 features at a cheaper price tag. The phone’s images, specifications, and tentative pricing have been leaked already, so there’s little that we don’t know about the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. You can watch the teaser video of the Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan event below.
Galaxy S20 Fan Edition Design, Specs, Price
Samsung has kept the design of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition largely similar to that of the Galaxy S20. At the front, it has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The phone comes in six exciting colors: Cloud Mint, Cloud Navy, Cloud Orange, Cloud Pink, Cloud Red, and Cloud White. It will reportedly come with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. The phone reportedly costs $749 in the US, but the Indian pricing hasn’t been leaked yet.
The phone has a 32MP selfie camera with autofocus embedded into the punch-hole-shaped display cutout. At the rear, it has three cameras: 12MP wide-angle, 12MP ultrawide, and 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom. The 12MP wide-angle camera reportedly uses a 1/1.76-inch sensor, dual-pixel autofocus, OIS, F1.8 aperture, and 1.8µm pixels. The 12MP ultrawide camera uses a 1/3-inch sensor, an F2,2 aperture, 123° FoV fixed-focus lens, and 1.12µm pixels. The 8MP telephoto camera has a 1/4.5-inch sensor, an F2.0 aperture, autofocus, 1µm pixels, and OIS. Except the ultrawide camera, all the cameras on the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition can record 4K 60fps videos.
The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition runs Android 10 with One UI 2.5. It comes in two variants: 4G LTE and 5G. The 4G LTE variant is equipped with the Exynos 990 processor, while the 5G variant features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. It has 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage, and a microSD card slot. It has GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, stereo speakers, and an under-display fingerprint reader. It is powered by a 4,500mAH battery and supports up to 15W fast charging.
