New details of the Galaxy S20 FE or Galaxy S20 Lite
The source of the new information is South Korean media The Elec, and was first reported by SamMobile. The report suggests that the device’s price will be 900,000 won in South Korean, which is equivalent to about 750 US dollars (around Rs. 56,000). To recall, the predecessor of this phone, Galaxy S10 Lite, debuted for a price of $650. Therefore, we would have an increase of about $100 in the price.

Upfront, the phone is said to feature a 32-megapixel selfie camera. An earlier report suggested that it would use the new 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN1 sensor, but the cited source denies this.

The price increase of around $100 compared to its predecessor may be due to the fact that we will get multiple features that were not present in the Galaxy S10 Lite. For example, it is likely to have IP68 certification, an AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, and the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. This accumulation of features makes the price of the phone look a bit more reasonable. This phone is expected to launch in October.
