Did you join us for today's Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan event? If you weren't able to join us for the livestream to hear our latest news, the event will be on our YouTube channel soon. Today, we were excited to introduce the Galaxy S20 FE to the world. 

 

You asked, we listened, we delivered! The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE comes in six striking new colours for you to express yourself more than ever before! Which will you pick? 

 

The 6.52 Full HD+ Infinity-O Display has barely-there bezels surrounding the flat edges, and a super small punch hole for the camera meaning a more immersive screen that makes your gaming, streaming, and video calling way more fun!

If you love taking pictures, we’ve got you covered! On the rear, we have a 12MP Wide-angle as well as a 12MP Ultra Wide so you can include more in your scene! Want to focus on those extra details? No worries! We have an 8MP Telephoto lens too! If it’s selfies you’re after, we have a 32MP on the front so your selfies look crisp and clean! (Caffeine not provided!).

 

 

 

 

 

30X Space Zoom lets you zoom from one side of the room to the other. The combination of 3x Optical Zoom and 30x Super Resolution Zoom let you get a close-up on the scene without moving your feet.

 

5G isn’t just fast - It’s HyperFast. And when you’re connected to the 5G network with a Galaxy S20 FE, you can game on in real time with little lag, while your streams and video calls come through clear.

 

The Super AMOLED screen also allows 120HZ refresh rate, keeping your scrolling smooth and your touch response time fast! Pre-order now and you can even get the game pack thrown in, allowing you to take advantage of Cloud Gaming with Xbox! Not a fan of gaming? Claim the Galaxy Fit 2 instead! 

 

For detailed information about the latest addition to our family or to pre-order, check out the page for the Galaxy S20 FE on our website

 

We’d love to hear what your first thoughts and opinions are about this product!

Sorry to hear that, @stoosh. Can you confirm if you have tried heading to Settings > Connections > SIM Card manager > Add Mobile Plan, and followed the on screen instructions? Have you tried reaching out to your network to enquire about obtaining an activation code for use during the eSIM setup?

There is no add mobile plan in the SIM card manager option. I don't see why I should contact my network provider to obtain an activation code when I can't even scan the QR code.

 

The phone should have the ability to scan e-sim QR codes out of the box. Yet again it's something that Samsung have dropped the ball on and many other Fold 2 users had the same problem until Samsung rolled out a software update to enable e-sim use.

 

My point is that the phone doesn't know whether I'm using a physical sim or e-sim and the option should be there to enable e-sim use. There is no point of speaking to my network provider as they stated that all I have to do is scan the QR code which I cannot do!

The phone is going back...

I have one S20 FE, but I am not lucky, not stock Android, lots of unusable apps and cant disable them... I have big problems with calls and sms/mms, phone looking normal, but nobody cant call me or send me sms/mms... firmware is new, I tested another SIM card, but same problems... battery is 4500 mAh, but it is like joke, i am using phone normally, without playing games and one day is mystery... dont buy it...

I didn't have time to join because I was at work. So I just went out and bought one anyway with the trade-in scheme! Coming from an S9+ to this is like night and day, absolutely amazing job!

Bought my missus one absolutely disgusted that the natural point to shoot camera takes a better photo than my S20ultra

I must honestly say that I'm impressed for the phone at the pricepoint. I will skip it myself considering I already got an S20 Ultra (Where I'm extremely satisfied with) but the S20 FE is a great affordable alternative with the Snapdragon SoC (Which makes it the Galaxy phone with the quickest GPU/CPU in Europe). Not that the Exynos version isn't good but this is definitely better in that area :winking-face:

As long as you don't want earphones they are no longer included as standard, Samsung want you to buy the ear pods.

It still does not come with standard earphones Samsung want you to purchase their ear pods, totally not expectable no matter your age, they have taken away the ability for you to listen to your phone/music in private.
