The Galaxy S20 FE 5G isn’t a brand new device per se. It was launched alongside the 4G Galaxy S20 FE in September last year and is already available in multiple markets. However, it’s only now that the South Korean smartphone maker is launching the 5G variant in India.

Except for the chipset and connectivity, the 5G model is identical to the 4G model in every respect. On the front, you get a 6.5-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz screen refresh rate. Powering the device from the inside is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB flash storage. On the back, the Galaxy S20 FE 5G features a quad camera setup headlined by a 12MP primary shooter, accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide shooter and an 8MP telephoto camera. The phone packs a 4,500mAh battery that charges via a 25W fast charger. The rest of the highlights include wireless charging support, IP68 dust and water protection, a MicroSD card slot, Samsung Wireless Dex, Knox Security suite, Bluetooth 5.0, and an under-display fingerprints scanner.
