The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is one of the best phones of 2020. This phone does not have any amazing features, but it was offered at a very good price at the right time and made its way to the list of the best phones of 2020.
Although the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition takes advantage of some of the components found in the S20 and S20 Plus, some key differences have allowed Samsung to lower its price. The back panel is plastic instead of glass, the cameras are a bit weaker, the RAM is reduced and the display is completely flat. None of this has a negative impact on the user experience, but compared to the S20 and S20 Plus, it ultimately has some weaker features.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S21 series some time ago, and Samsung has almost repeated the same approach to reduce the cost of building the standard model of this family. For example, we can mention the plasticity of the body, the flat screen and the lack of progress in the field of camera. Also, at $ 800, it is cheaper than its predecessor.
These decisions make the Galaxy S21 an attractive phone at a reasonable price, but when we consider the Galaxy S21 fan edition, things get complicated. Given these shortfalls to reduce costs, what can Samsung do for the Fan Edition model?
In this regard, we can refer to the issue of chips. The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition was offered in two models, 5G and 4G, but the 5G model received a lot of attention. This model uses the Snapdragon 865, which is the same chip in the S20 series. Since the new generation of chips uses an integrated 5G modem, we will no longer see the release of the 4G Galaxy S21 Fan Edition. To reduce the cost of making this phone, Samsung can use the Snapdragon 870 instead of the Snapdragon 888.
The Snapdragon 870 is almost the same as the 865 Plus, which is now set to hit the 2021 handsets under a new name. This chip has a very high speed and supports all 5G technologies, also allows the phone to use QHD + displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz to 144 Hz. Although it has less to say than the Snapdragon 888, it is still a very powerful chip and, most importantly, it is cheaper than the Snapdragon 888.
Another clever move is for Samsung to use the same Galaxy S21 camera module for the S21 Fan Edition. The S21 cameras are essentially no different from their predecessors, and Samsung used a slimmer version of the S20 Fan Edition. That’s why Samsung is bringing a small but decent upgrade to the Fan Edition for the Fan Edition.
As for the display, we will probably see a 120 Hz flat panel with flat edges again. Samsung can also slightly increase the margins and holes of the display to reduce costs. Also with 8 GB of RAM, at least 128 GB of internal memory and a price of about $ 600, this phone can attract a lot of attention.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Even if the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is not much different from its predecessor, this will not necessarily be a negative feature. The Galaxy S21 is very similar to the previous generation in various respects, but thanks to its cheaper price, it is a very attractive phone.
All Samsung has to do for the Galaxy S21 Fan Edition is to keep construction costs low, get a new design, and reduce its price by about $ 100; By doing so, the phone in question can be included in the list of the best phones of 2021. The S21 family has proven that Samsung can lower the price of some of its handsets, which means that it is likely that a reduction in the price of the S21 Fan Edition will also be possible.
We’ll probably have to wait a few months to get access to this phone, but in any case, if Samsung does not make a big mistake, it is not difficult to predict the success of this phone. All in all, we have to see how Samsung takes this phone.
