Samsung lately announced the Galaxy S20 FE, which is a lighter version of its flagship S20 series. The phone was already available for sale in the global markets. Finally, the company has unleashed its launch date for India and pricing altogether. It is worth mentioning that the Indian market will only get a 4G variant with Exynos 990. There won’t be the 5G variant, unlike some other global markets.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy FE comes with a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2400 pixels Full HD+ Super AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device is made out of plastic back surrounded by the Aluminium chases. It is IP68 certified against water and dust, meaning it can easily survive up to 1.5m for 30 mins underwater. The smartphone packs Exynos 990 chipset coupled with Mali-G77 MP11 GPU.
As for optics, it has a triple rear camera; the primary one is a 12MP shooter combined with an 8MP telephoto lens and a 12MP ultrawide sensor. There is a 32MP front-facing shooter to capture selfies. Both front and rear cameras can shoot up to 4K video at 60 fps. The Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) is there to stabilize the footage to provide stability to the video footage on either side.
Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE smartphone brings a considerably larger 4500 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. But the company is only supplying 15W charger out of the box; Hence, you have to spend additional money if you want 25W fast charging. It runs on the Android 10 operating system on the top of the company’s custom OneUI 2.5. In addition, the audio department is taken care of by AKG-tuned stereo speakers. But the 3.5mm headphone jack is missing.
Overall, the device is backed by flagship specifications just like we have seen on the standard S20 series. But there are some cost-cutting such as plastic back, lower-resolution display, etc.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE retailing at $599 for the 4G variant, which goes up to $699 for the 5G variant in the global markets.
