Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition reportedly coming to U.S. through Verizon

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is reportedly coming to the United States, as videos of the rumored smartphone were spotted on Verizon’s website.

The specifications and renders of the device were leaked in August by Pricebaba and reliable tipster OnLeaks, but it was unclear if U.S. customers will be able to buy the cheaper version of the Galaxy S20. WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, however, found videos hosted on Verizon’s website that apparently confirm it.

Verizon is apparently preparing to offer the Galaxy S20 FE in four colors, namely navy, mint, lavender, and red. The videos do not reveal when the smartphone will launch in the U.S., but their presence on the carrier’ website suggests that the wait might not be too long.

Digital Trends has reached out to Verizon for comments on the spotted Galaxy S20 FE videos on its website, including when the carrier will start offering the smartphone. We will update this article as soon as we hear back.

Galaxy S20 FE design, specs

The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is expected to share several design elements with the Galaxy S20, with a screen that measures between 6.4 inches and 6.5 inches and a punch-hole for the selfie camera. A familiar three-camera module is at the back of the device, which will presumably be powered by the Snapdragon 865.

A Geekbench listing supposedly confirmed the processor and 6GB RAM, but Pricebaba expects an 8GB version of the smartphone with 512GB of storage.

The Elec, meanwhile, claimed that the Galaxy S20 FE will launch in South Korea in October with an equivalent price of about $750. It remains unclear if the smartphone will have a similar release window and price in the U.S.

CES 2023: Samsung’s new Galaxy A14 looks like a killer $200 Android deal
Samsung announces the Galaxy A14 5G at CES 2023.

Samsung today announced an update to one of its more popular phone lines -- the A-Series. It's updating the well-received Galaxy A13 with a new A14 this week. This new model comes with Android 13, a big screen and battery, 5G support, and a decent camera set-up for a price that won't break the bank.

Samsung highlights a few things over the A13 and A13 5G, including the more modern design with flatter edges popularised by the iPhone 12, support for fast charging, and high-resolution cameras.  The A1X series are low-priced phones, so each new feature comes with a compromise.

Samsung’s Galaxy A23 5G packs a 120Hz display and a huge battery for $300
Samsung Galaxy A23 5G colors

Just over a week ago, Samsung introduced a 5G version of the budget Galaxy A23 smartphone in Taiwan. The company has now decided to bring it to the U.S. with an attractive asking price of $300 for an unlocked unit.

To recall, the LTE version the Galaxy A23 has been on sale in U.S. stores since March of this year. The most obvious change introduced by the A23 5G is, well, 5G support. However, Samsung has also bumped up the screen refresh rate to 120Hz, which is quite a surprising perk for a phone in this price bracket.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch is great, but the S Pen would make it amazing
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 with S Pen from Galaxy S22 Ultra on a cane table background.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is one of the best smartwatches around. Until 2021, Samsung’s smartwatches ran on a custom operating system called Tizen. But with the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4 series, the company announced a major revamp to its operating system for smartwatches.

It rebuilt the smartwatch interface based on top of Google’s Wear OS, bringing new features and better app support, all while retaining a familiar-looking interface. And as much as I enjoy using Samsung's smartwatches, I think they could be made even better with the S Pen.
Why S Pen support for the Galaxy Watch makes sense
