Samsung Brings Down Price With Galaxy S20 'Fan Edition'

From PC Mag: Long ago, I had a meeting with Samsung where an executive told me, "if we could make a different model of phone for every person, we would." Samsung appears to be reaching in that direction with the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, a "light" version of the S20 series that slots in between the A71 and the small Galaxy S20.

The S20 FE has a 6.5-inch, 120Hz, 2,400-by-1,080 screen and a very large 4,500mah battery. It has a 32MP front camera, along with three rear cameras: a f/2.2 12MP ultrawide, f/1.8 12MP main and f/2.4 8MP 3x telephoto. It runs a Snapdragon 865 processor, with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a MicroSD card slot. It supports wireless charging and wireless reverse charging. It's waterproof. The phone will come in unlocked and carrier-sold sub-6GHz 5G models for $699, and a millimeter-wave model for Verizon, for $749.

It's a noticeable upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy A71. You get a faster processor, the 120Hz screen for smooth scrolling, wireless charging, IP68 water resistance and a real 3x zoom camera. On the other hand, the phone will be bigger and bulkier than the more expensive S20, which some people like to buy because it fits easily in one hand.
