Again in September, Samsung added a brand new member to its premium Galaxy S20 household within the type of the . The machine prices $700 (£599, AU$999), handily stealing the crown from the $1,000 (at launch) and making it probably the most inexpensive cellphone in Samsung’s premium S20 line. That raises an apparent query: What compromises have been made to drive down the fee, and due to this fact the beginning worth, of the S20 FE?
On paper at the least, there are not many core variations between the phones. The 6.5-inch S20 FE retains most of the top-shelf options present in its flashier siblings. Together with a pointy AMOLED show coupled with ultra-fast refresh charges, it has a big battery, an IP68 ranking (for water and mud resistance) and a number of cameras on its rear, together with a telephoto lens.
The place Samsung does make compromises is in its selection of fabric. The S20 FE, not like its fancier siblings, has a again fabricated from plastic as a substitute of glass. It has much less RAM and storage than its relations, and there are some concessions on its rear digicam setup, however you may not even miss them. 8K video recording and 100x Area Zoom are absent, however 30x zoom is obtainable (like what’s featured within the S20 and S20 Plus) and so is 3x optical zoom.
