Samsung launches Galaxy S20 FE with 120Hz display and 4500mAh battery


After weeks of multiple teasers, Samsung has now officially released Galaxy S20 FE to now bring flagship features to a much more affordable price range. Samsung instead of calling it Galaxy S20 “Lite” just like its predecessor Galaxy S20 Lite, has renamed this new smartphone as Galaxy S20 FE or “Fan Edition”.

Galaxy S20 FE is also guaranteed to get three years of Android OS upgrades.
