Samsung announced the Galaxy S20 FE in 4G and 5G versions in Q3 last year. The 4G edition featuring the Exynos 990 was released in markets like India and Europe, whereas its 5G variant with Snapdragon 865 was made available in markets like South Korea, the U.S., and China.
Fresh information shared by a tipster today reveals that the company may stop producing the Exynos 990 variant of the S20 FE, and instead looking to release a new variant with Snapdragon 865+ chipset instead. According to earlier reports, the Galaxy S20 FE variant with Exynos 990 is said to offer lower performance and battery life as compared to the SD865 model.
The Snapdragon 865+ is an overclocked version of the SD865 chip. The existing Galaxy S20 FE 5G which is available in different markets features the SD865, and not the SD865+. While the company may discontinue the Exynos 990 model of S20 FE, it remains to be seen whether it will really launch a new variant with SD865+.
