Samsung to Launch More Galaxy FE Versions of Its Flagships: Report

Samsung will reportedly launch more Galaxy FE editions of its flagship smartphones in the future. During the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE launch event, the South Korean company shared the news about FE editions, according to GSM Arena. This means we may see Galaxy Note 20 FE in future. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is a watered-down variant of the Galaxy S20 flagship. The smartphone comes with a 120Hz refresh rate and comes in both 4G as well as 5G versions.

Apparently, ‘Lite’ moniker hasn’t worked out well for the company. Having said that, it’s too early to say that the FE wordplay will appeal to customers.
