Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition: Leaked specifications
With the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, Samsung may take the same approach as the Galaxy S10 Lite. The new model may retain the core features of the S20 while skipping on the luxuries to keep the costs low. This model may get the newer Snapdragon 865 chip along with faster LP DDR5 RAM of up to 12GB. It is said to sport a 4,500mAh battery. The phone could end up in green, orange, red, and white color variants early in Europe.
Samsung could cut costs with the cameras once again. Instead of the 64-megapixel quad-camera on the S20, the Fan Edition may retain a similar 48-megapixel triple camera setup from the S10 Lite. A leak from Korean publication The Elec stated that this model may get two 12-megapixel main and ultra-wide cameras as well as an 8-megapixel telephoto camera. Storage may be bumped up to 256GB this time. The S20 Fan Edition may launch with OneUI 2.1 based on Android 10. The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition may also get IP67 water and dust resistance.
