We had exclusively reported last month that Samsung is developing a lower-priced variant of the Galaxy S20 and that it would come in three colors. Later, a leaked benchmark of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition pointed towards the existence of the Snapdragon 865 processor in the upcoming phone. Now, more specs and launch time frame of the phone has been leaked.
IP68 certification also tipped to be part of the package
According to Ice Universe, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year. The phone will reportedly feature the Snapdragon 865 processor and a Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen will have a punch-hole-shaped cutout with a diameter of 3.3mm for the selfie camera. Apparently, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will also have an IP68-certified design. It is also being reported that it will come with an attractive price.
There have been rumors about Samsung using its newly-launched 50MP ISOCELL GN1 camera sensor in the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. It will have at least 6GB RAM and 128GB UFS internal storage. There should also be a microSD card slot for storage expansion. It will be available in Prism Blue, Prism Violet / Prism Light Violet, and Prism White colors.
Two model numbers of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition have been found: SM-G780 (LTE) and SM-G781 (5G). The phone will most probably run Android 10 with One UI 2.5. It will probably target those who want flagship-grade specifications but at a lower price.
