Months ago, Samsung launched Galaxy S20 range, but one model may be still to come. There are rumors of a Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite or it might be called the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. It seems cheaper and reportedly slightly lower end alternative to the standard Samsung Galaxy S20. But, it will supposedly still be a highly capable phone like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. The company has indicated the Galaxy S20 Lite by name on some of its websites, but we’ve also experienced official mentioning the S20 Fan Edition. A source has indicated the Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite might land is October 2020 but didn’t provide a specific launch date or when it would go on sale. Point to be noted that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite launched this year with an announcement in January and an on-sale date in February.
The Galaxy S10 Lite cost $650 at launch, so the S20 Lite might be similar or more. It is noteworthy that some sources have referred to it as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or the S20 FE. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite name appeared on official Samsung websites and Galaxy S20 FE was also listed on a Bluetooth certification. So, it seems both names are in use in an official capacity. SamMobile said it will come in blue, white, and light violet shades. A leaker @Boby25846908 posted on Twitter that S20 Lite will have a flat, Full HD Super AMOLED screen with a 60Hz refresh rate. Another leak from Ice Universe has suggested the phone will in fact sport a 120Hz refresh rate including a variety of other specs.
The source claimed the phone will be IP68, and it’ll come with a 3.3mm selfie punch-hole. A handset with the model number SM-G781B (previously attached to the S20 Lite) passed through Geekbench, revealing a top-end Snapdragon 865 chipset, 6GB of RAM, Android 10, and a 50MP main camera. The Snapdragon 865 chipset was also mentioned by Ice Universe in the leak that talked about the 120Hz display and its water resistance rating. It is noteworthy that an earlier report pointed to at least 128GB of storage, along with Android 10 (with Samsung’s One UI 2.5 on top), and 5G.
