I am planning on purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE from the UAE's amazon website, but it says it's the UAE version, how does that affect the phone exactly if any?

@kareemamrr: If you're based in Egypt, and purchase an S20 FE that is intended for use in the UAE, then the warranty will not be valid in your country, and the phone may be region locked to UAE networks. Due to software and hardware variances that exist in our devices from region to region, you may also experience compatibility issues with some apps and services. With this in mind, if possible, I'd recommend purchasing the device from inside your current region to avoid any of the issues above.
