Samsung’s first “fan version” device, Galaxy Note FE, is the disastrous re-release of Galaxy Note 7. It was fully launched in 2017. Since then, Samsung has not released another fan version of the device. Yesterday, when Samsung officially unveiled the outer shell of the Galaxy S20 FE, the situation changed. Samsung has previously launched affordable flagship products, but these smartphones carry the “lite” brand. Now, Samsung plans to completely abandon the “lite” brand and focus on releasing the “fan edition” version of its flagship product.
The company confirmed this decision in the latest Galaxy Unpacked event, which was the Galaxy S20 FE launched at the event. At the press conference, Clare Hunter of Samsung Electronics Global Strategy Department said: “In order to pay tribute to our Galaxy fans, we have set a new standard to make the flagship innovative products that are out of the reach of people use as much as possible. Moreover, we will continue to launch fan versions of our flagship devices in the next few years. .”
This means that all upcoming Samsung flagship products will follow the public, and affordable “fan version” devices will follow. Considering that the company has released the Galaxy Note series for 2020, we now expect to see the Galaxy Note 20 FE sometime in the next few months. As of now, Samsung has not disclosed information about the device. However, based on the Galaxy Note 10 Lite specifications earlier this year, we suspect that the Galaxy Note 20 FE may be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC or Exynos 990 chipset, a flat panel display with 120Hz refresh rate, a triple camera setup, and new and improved S Pen.
