Even Samsung Fan Hates How It Designs The Upcoming Galaxy S20 FE

Samsung hasn't announced the Galaxy S20 FE yet but a leak hands-on video has already got online. And it prompted criticism from even a Samsung fan.

A few months ago, Samsung shocked consumers when confirming that the cheapest Galaxy S20 would come at a price of $999, a huge increase in pricing for a phone. The flagship does offer premium hardware as well as 5G connectivity, but its price was much higher than expected.

However, Android handsets’ prices often go down faster than iPhones’. In months after the launch, the company discounted the price and offered additional means of buying the handset like a subscription program and buyback guarantee. At the same time, rumors said that Samsung would soon launch a cheaper version of the Galaxy S20.

The cheaper version is called Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (S20 FE), but it wasn’t revealed during the Galaxy Note 20 event last month. Instead, Samsung announced the Note 20 also at $999 that shouldn’t hold the flagship status due to the compromises going into the production of this phone.

And now, before the S20 Fan Edition is officially revealed, a YouTuber has already got the phone and made a detailed preview video of the device. After that, long-time Samsung fan/leaker Ice Universe went on Twitter and mocked the design of the Galaxy S20 FE.

The leaker provided a great deal of detail about unreleased products and Samsung’s future plans, not forgetting to criticize its decisions. The leaker posted a series of tweets mocking the choice of all-screen design on the S20 FE, focusing on the large bezels. While the tweets were removed later, you can still read what he wrote here.

When Apple launched the iPhone X in 2017, the size of the bezel became a topic for discussion around Android smartphones. High-end Android devices like the Note 20 Ultra and the S20 feature thin bezels like the iPhone while cheaper devices come with thicker bezels. The more affordable S20 FE will also have thicker bezels, especially the bottom.

The upcoming smartphone will offer several compromises compared with the Galaxy S20 lineup. For instance, it will deliver a 6.5-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, but the resolution will be Full HD. At 6GB RAM, the storage will be half that of the S20 and it will lack the 64MP secondary lens of the S20. Besides, it will come with 15W fast charging and a plastic back panel.

The Galaxy S20 Fe will deliver 5G connectivity, 128GB of internal memory, as well as a 4,500mAh battery.
