SINGAPORE – Sitting through last night’s (23 Sept) Galaxy Unpacked, we were surprised to find out that Samsung revealed the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE), the newest member of the Galaxy S20 series.
It doesn’t come cheap either - while the electronics brand revealed the price point to start at US$699 (which comes close to S$1,000).
Samsung shared today that customers can start to pre-order the FE phones from Thursday (1 October), 10am onwards at telecommunication operators (Singtel and StarHub), as well as Samsung Online Store, Samsung Experience Stores, major consumer electronics stores and KrisShop, at a recommended retail price of S$1,098 and S$1,168 for the 128GB and 256GB variants respectively (including GST).
All consumers who pre-order the Galaxy S20 FE 5G with the telecommunication operators will receive Galaxy Buds+ (Black) worth S$268 and Samsung EVO Plus microSD Memory Card 128GB worth S$39.90, while pre-orders from other channels will receive Galaxy Buds+ (Black) worth S$268, upon successful payment for and collection or delivery of their pre-order.
The Galaxy S20 FE 5G will be available from 16 October 2020, Friday in Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Navy, Cloud Red, Cloud Orange and Cloud White.
So what do we know about the FE smartphone? Samsung basically took selected features of the Galaxy S20 series, such as the scrolling display, an AI-powered camera, advanced chipset, hyper-fast connectivity, all-day battery, expandable storage, and a streamlined premium design, in order to create the all-new Galaxy S20 FE.
The Galaxy S20 FE comes in a selection of six vibrant colours: Cloud Red, Cloud Orange, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Navy and Cloud White. To reduce smudges and minimise fingerprints, Samsung also incorporated a textured haze effect.
Performance-wise, Samsung packed an advanced processor and 5G connectivity to enable a seamless experience.
For your viewing pleasure, its 6.5-inch Infinity-O Super Amoled display gets refreshed easily at rates as fast as 120Hz.
The FE smartphone is equipped with the robust 4,500mAh battery, which is the same as the previous Galaxy S20+.
The FE edition comes with a 32-megapixel selfie camera and 30x hybrid Space Zoom that includes a tetra-binning technology, which lets you instantly capture a post-worthy picture.
Starting on 2 October 2020, Galaxy S20 FE will be widely available through Samsung.com, carriers and retailers online. Pre-orders for the Galaxy S20 FE 5G and S20 FE begin on Samsung.com from today onwards. The availability details for the Singapore market will be announced at a later date.
