Samsung launched the Samsung S10 Lite earlier this year, and today, we have come to know that Samsung has already started working on its successor - Samsung S20 Lite.
The latest information came on courtesy of Sammobile suggests that the upcoming smartphone will be known as Samsung S20 Fan Edition and not S20 Lite, and is likely to debut with a Snapdragon 865 chipset since S10 Lite debuted with a Snapdragon 855 SoC. Even though the name suggests an entirely new device, the model number under development clearly shows its relation with the S10 Lite. S20 FE under development marks model no SM-G780, S10 Lite has SM-G770. There will be two models of Samsung S20 FE - Standard non-5G SM-G780 (International Variant), and SM-G781 (USA variant) with 5G support.
Other details and specifications of the S20 FE are still unknown, though one information known at this point is that it is going to have at least 128GB of internal storage, and will run on One UI 2.5 based on Android 10. For those who aren't aware yet, One UI 2.5 is going to debut with Samsung Note 20, whose launch is scheduled for August.
Samsung S20 series launched earlier this year didn't perform well in sales owing to a sluggish Exynos 990 chipset suffering from aggressive thermal throttling and COVID-19 pandemic. But Since Samsung S20 FE is likely to debut with a Snapdragon Chipset at a lower price bracket, it might manage to outsell the original Samsung S20 series.
Anyways, for now, I have got no clue about the pricing of the Samsung S20 FE, but my bet will hover around $600 considering the Samsung S10 Lite launch price.
