A key feature of all phones in the S20 range, including the Galaxy S20 FE is the infinity-O display maximising screen space, which offers an exceptional experience for streaming or gaming.
The size of the phone is larger than the original S20, measuring 6.5 inches, though for even larger options the S20 Plus provides a 6.7 inch display while the S20 Ultra offers a 6.9 inch display.
The phone’s plastic back comes in six vibrant colours: cloud lavender, cloud mint, cloud navy, cloud white, cloud red and cloud orange. This is accompanied by a glass front and aluminium frame to create a sleek look.
The weight of this phone is 190g with dimensions of 159.8 x 74.5 x 8.4mm.
The selfie camera of this phone sets it apart from the early models in the range, as it improves on the 10 MP front camera offered by the Samsung Galaxy S20 to provide a 32MP camera for high quality photos and videos.
In addition, the signature triple lens rear camera is also included in the S20 FE. The 12MP wide and ultrawide lenses provide a wide field of vision for shots while the 8MP telephoto lens offers a 3x optical zoom and 30x resolution zoom to get detailed up-close shots.
This camera also offers the options of LED flash, Auto-HDR and panorama.
If you are looking for the camera quality to go to the next level, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra offers a 108MP resolution camera with 100x optical zoom.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is powered by a 4,500mAh fast charging, non-removable battery which should provide enough for a day and is an increase from the 4,000mAh battery offered with the Samsung Galaxy S20 phone.
The phone offers 128GB of storage with 6GB RAM. Though there is the option to expand this with a microSD card, this particular model does not come in any larger storage options. For these, both the S20 plus and S20 ultra offer options for a 512GB model.
As with the whole of this range, the S20 FE’s 6.5 inch display has a 120Hz refresh rate, meaning a quicker moving screen than the previous S10 model to create a better scrolling experience.
The phone is also dust and water resistant in up to 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes.
Does the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE come with a headphone jack?
Unlike the Galaxy S10 range, the S20 range does not come with a headphone jack. However, using USB Type-C wired headphones or a jack adapter means headphones can still be used. Alternatively, the phone is easy to connect to wireless headphones using Bluetooth.
Does the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE have wireless charging?
Yes. All phones in this range have fast and easy wireless charging for when you’re out and about.
