Samsung says its new Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) 5G smartphone is the new premium flagship in the line, named as such because it is designed with features based on fan feedback.
The phone includes many of the features found in the Galaxy S20 Series 5G phone, including the Super Smooth scrolling display, AI-powered camera, advanced chipset, hyper-fast connectivity, and all-day battery, to guide the design of the FE version.
Available starting at $949, the S20 FE 5G employs a streamlined design and comes in six new color options: red, orange, lavender, mint, navy, and white, along with a premium textured haze effect that Samsung says helps reduce fingerprints and smudges.
“We are constantly speaking to our fans and taking feedback, and we heard what they loved the most about our Galaxy S20 series, what features they used most often, and what they would want to see in a new smartphone,” says Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business for Samsung Electronics. “Galaxy S20 FE 5G is an extension of Galaxy S20 family, designed to bring meaningful innovation to even more people and give them a chance to do the things they love with the best of Galaxy.”
The Galaxy S20 FE 5G has a 32MP pro-grade selfie camera, with large image sensors including tetra-binning technology and multi-frame processing for taking vibrant photos, even in low light. AI integration will detect and remove motion blur and suggest the best shots. Using the 30X Space Zoom, you can get closer or magnify details.
Equipped with an advanced processor and hyper-fast 5G, it has a 6.5-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED screen with a Super Smooth 120Hz refresh rate. You can easily connect to your Galaxy Watch to set fitness goals or Galaxy Buds Live to turn on a favourite playlist before heading out on a phone-free run. Sound is by AKG and there’s also Spotify integration; assign a shortcut on the device so you can touch and hold for one second to initiate music.
The intelligent battery offers Super Fast Charging, and Wireless PowerShare means you can use the phone to boost the battery in your Galaxy Buds Live as well.
The phone is IP68-rated for water and dust resistance, and you can sign on for Samsung Care+ total care service for protection for up to two years against physical or liquid damage and mechanical malfunction or defects not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. You can buy Care+ with the phone or within 30 days of your purchase date.
Galaxy S20 FE 5G will be available for pre-order starting October 1 at Samsung Experience Stores or through Samsung.com/ca, as well as across major Canadian carriers and retail partners, and will be available for purchase at retail as of October 16, 2020.
