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.

The USB-C port on the Samsung Galaxy S23.

The first thing you should do with your Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus, or Galaxy S23 Ultra is charge up the battery. You'll want a 100% full battery to get the most out of your new phone, but that then brings up a simple, but important question: Does the Samsung Galaxy S23 come with a charger?

A few years ago, when you could rely on every phone coming with a charger in the box, this seemed like a silly question to ask. But in 2023, it's necessary to think about it with every phone you want to buy. These days, some phones come with chargers, others do not, and that's just how things work.

Samsung is reportedly working on a new Galaxy S23 Fan Edition (FE) phone after skipping a similar phone for the S22 series. According to reports, the company is expected to debut it with the older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor rather than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that ships with the other Galaxy S23 devices.

Samsung had typically used the same processor for the Fan edition phones as the mainline models, but has opted to cut costs with materials instead.

A new version of the Galaxy S23 is coming — and it could be the best one yet
Holding the green Samsung Galaxy S23.

Samsung is reportedly bringing back the "Fan Edition" formula for a budget flagship this year by serving up a watered-down version of the Galaxy S23 to smartphone shoppers on a budget. A Korean outlet reports that Samsumg will likely launch a Galaxy S23 Fan Edition sometime in August or September this year.

The Fan Edition formula first arrived in 2020 to replace the trend of “Lite” versions of Samsung flagships. The Galaxy S20 FE marked the start, and Samsung subsequently promised to release Fan Edition versions of its flagships for the foreseeable future. The Galaxy S21 FE continued the trend, but owing to supply chain uncertainties and production woes, Samsung didn’t give the same treatment to the Galaxy S22 series.
