Despite constant complaints from loyal users, Samsung loves fitting its European smartphones with Exynos chipsets. But that practice is (temporarily) ending with the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, which will be fitted with the Snapdragon 865 in every market.
Samsung previously used that chipset inside the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Ultra, and Galaxy S20+ models destined for the United States. In the case of the Galaxy S20 FE, it should be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage as standard.
Other features include the presence of IP68 water and dust resistance, and the addition of a large 4,500mAh battery.

Samsung is expected to offer the smartphone in red, white, green, and orange.
