Newly released in September 2020, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE joins the ranks of the S20 series as the most budget-friendly handset thus far. But despite the midrange pricepoint, this smartphone has plenty of top-end specs; from the professional grade triple-lens camera to 5G connectivity (available exclusively on the 5G variant), it’s sure to exceed expectations. Find out what this device has to offer as we explore the top five features of the S20 FE in greater detail below.
6.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O Display
Wide enough to provide a cinematic viewing experience, whilst still fitting comfortably in your hand, the S20 FE sports a 6.5-inch Infinity-O display, equipped with Full HD+ resolution. This display can achieve up to 16 million colours, so whether you’re gaming, editing video footage or scrolling through the news, you’ll do it in vivid clarity.
The only interruption to this display is the tiny punch hole housing the 32MP front camera, and with a screen-to-body ratio of 84.8%, you’re sure to be immersed in the task at hand. Scrolling is super smooth too, as this device’s Super AMOLED display refreshes at a 120Hz rate, so graphics glitches and motion blur are a thing of the past.
On the rear of the phone, you’ll find a sophisticated triple-lens camera setup, comprised of one 12MP ultra wide lens, a second 12MP wide angle lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. This combination can take stunning landscape shots from afar, and just as easily nail the closeups, with up to 30x Super Resolution Zoom and 3x Optical Zoom available.
The S20 FE also features Samsung’s biggest dual pixel sensor yet, ideal for helping you to capture crystal clear visions in low light, assisted by Night Mode. Plus, if you’re a content creator, you’ll love Single Take – shoot footage for up to 15 seconds with Single Take activated, and this setting will extract a selection of high-quality images and videos for you to choose from.
Over on the front of the handset, you’ll find a 32MP camera on hand to upgrade your selfies. This advanced lens can capture every little detail, and you’ll have the flexibility to edit the background blur in your image both before and after you’ve taken the shot, so you always stand out in your surroundings.
One UI 2.5
Based on Android 10, One UI 2.5 is Samsung’s latest custom interface, creating a unique operating system bespoke to this smartphone giant. Designed to be intuitive and user-friendly, One UI 2.5 incorporates all the best features of its predecessor, One UI 2.1, but with several exciting new updates added to the mix.
Wireless DeX support is one of the key additions to UI 2.5; with this feature, you can use your phone to mirror a supported smart TV, and even turn it into a remote control using selected hand gestures. This operating system will also grant you an insight into the quality of nearby Wi-Fi connections, labelling them either ‘Slow’, ‘Normal, ‘Fast’ or ‘Very Fast’, so you can choose the quickest connection. On top of this, One UI 2.5 sees several enhancements to Pro Video Mode, keyboard improvements and more.
If you're after 5G, make sure you choose the S20 FE 5G model. The UK’s fifth generation mobile network, a 5G connection will elevate your handset to the next level – making streaming shows, sharing files and downloading movies speedy and seamless.
Paired with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip powering this smartphone, 5G will transform your mobile gaming experience; play even the most graphics-intensive games with non-existent lag and minimal latency. As long as you’re in a 5G supported location, you’ll be able to enjoy all these benefits, and when you travel out of this area, the S20 FE 5G will automatically connect to 4G or 3G.
4,500 mAh battery
You'll find a 4,500 mAh All-Day Intelligent Battery on the S20 FE – designed to keep your device running without a hitch, right through from your morning commute to after work drinks. When you do need to power up, you won’t be waiting around for long, as with Super Fast Charging available, your device can make it past 50% in just 30 minutes.
You’ll be able to charge the device without fussing with cables, thanks to Fast Wireless Charging 2.0. Just place your handset face up on any Qi-certified charger (sold separately), and your smartphone will start to charge. Samsung Galaxy Watch running low, while your phone is fully charged? You can easily transfer power from one device to another – so long as it’s compatible – with Wireless PowerShare also on board.
