Galaxy S20 Fan Edition to use Galaxy S20’s camera sensor
The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, which is a spiritual successor to the Galaxy S10 Lite, is expected to be launched in October. We had exclusively revealed information about its existence two months ago. It was earlier reported that Samsung could equip the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition with its latest camera sensor, the 50MP ISOCELL GN1. However, it doesn’t look like it is happening.
While last week’s report had revealed that it would come with a 12MP+12MP+8MP triple-camera setup, the actual model number of the sensor wasn’t disclosed. Noted tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) has now revealed that the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will use the Sony IMX555 for its primary rear-facing camera. If you can remember, this is the same sensor that’s used in the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20+.
The Sony IMX55 is a 1/1.76-inch sensor with 12MP resolution, dual-pixel PD autofocus, and 1.8µm pixels. Hopefully, Samsung has equipped it with OIS as well. Going by a previous report, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will also use a 12MP ultrawide camera and an 8MP telephoto camera with a 3x optical zoom. This also means that the phone won’t be able to record 8K videos as none of its cameras exceed the 33.2MP resolution (8K).
Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leaked specs
The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is expected to feature a 6.5-inch or 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and an in-display fingerprint reader. It will be equipped with the Snapdragon 865 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. It is also IP68-certified for dust and water resistance.
Other features of the phone could include LTE, A-GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, and a 4,500mAh battery with 45W fast charging support. It is being reported that the phone will be priced at $750, which is $100 higher than the price of the Galaxy S10 Lite. It could be offered in green, orange, red, and white colors.
