Pro-grade triple Camera, New vibrant colours and curated premium innovations, starting at R17 999*

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 01 October 2020 Samsung recently revealed the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE), the newest member of the Galaxy S20 series. Galaxy S20 FE is a premium flagship smartphone that includes innovations Galaxy fans told us they love most, made available at an accessible price point, starting at (Prices are based on ‘Recommended Resale Price R17 999). COVID-19 disrupted the world as we knew it and technology is now playing an even more crucial role in our lives and that is why we created Galaxy S20 FE to delivering flagship experiences to reach even more consumers. Samsung took select features of the Galaxy S20 series, such as the super smooth scrolling display, an AI-powered camera, advanced chipset, hyper-fast connectivity, all day battery[1], expandable storage[2], with a streamlined premium design, in order to create the all-new Galaxy S20 FE.

 

“We are constantly speaking to our fans and taking feedback, and we heard what they loved the most about our Galaxy S20 series, what features they used most often and what they would want to see in a new smartphone,” said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa. “The S20 FE is an extension of the Galaxy S20 family and is the start of a new way to bring meaningful innovation to even more people to let them do the things they love with the best of Galaxy.”

 

Express Your Best Self

 

These days, taking pictures or videos and sharing them is the best way to express yourself. That’s why the Galaxy S20 FE brings a pro-grade camera along with the 32MP selfie Camera including tetra-binning technology that lets you instantly capture a post-worthy picture.

 

With Galaxy S20 FE’s large image sensors including multi-frame processing, you can take richer, more vibrant images — even in low light — so you can simply snap and go. Night mode multi-frame processing with AI frame integration stabilizes motion in-shot while you record, so you can focus on having fun.

 

And while you may not always be physically close to the action, the Galaxy S20 FE’s powerful 30X Space Zoom[3] lets you get close enough to capture the shot. Editing and sharing photos and video is important to fans, so the Galaxy S20 FE makes it easy to create and curate stunning photos and videos in real-time like a pro.

 

To reflect your personal style, the Galaxy S20 FE comes in a selection of four vibrant colours to suit every attitude, look and personality with signature design elements pulled from sleek and slim Galaxy S20 family. Colours include Cloud Red, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint and Cloud Navy[4]. It also features a premium textured haze effect that minimises fingerprints and smudges.

 

Do What You Love

 

When your phone is at the centre of your life, everything from the design to performance should be a great experience. Samsung equipped the Galaxy S20 FE with an advanced processor connectivity to enable a seamless experience. The Galaxy S20 FE is the perfect device for fluid scrolling or watching a video, thanks to its 6.5-inch[5] Infinity-O Super AMOLED screen with a super smooth 120Hz refresh rate.

 

With access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate[6], you can enjoy an advanced mobile gaming experience. The Galaxy S20 FE instantly connects to the Galaxy ecosystem of products, such as Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Fit2.

 

Everything You Want, Worry-Free

 

Samsung equipped the Galaxy S20 FE with a battery capable of lasting throughout the day[7]. The Galaxy S20 FE’s robust 4,500mAH battery, powerful AP performance and Super-Fast charging ensures you can keep doing what you love, without a worry about battery life[8].

 

And since life can be unpredictable, the Galaxy S20 FE is water and dust resistant IP68 rated. Better yet, when accidents happen, you can rest easy knowing Samsung Care+ has got your back, whether you have a cracked screen, experience water damage or a battery in need of replacing[9].

 

Technology is always evolving, so Galaxy users get three generations of Android operating system (OS) upgrades that keep the Galaxy S20 FE updated with the latest security protection and features Samsung has to offer.
