The Galaxy S20 FE’s 4G-only Snapdragon 865 version was launched three months ago. Originally, the Galaxy S20 FE was launched in 4G and 5G variants. The 4G variant used the Exynos 990 processor, while the 5G variant used the Snapdragon 865 chipset. However, due to the chip shortage, the company had to launch a third variant with 4G connectivity and the Snapdragon 865 processor in some markets.
