All this is squeezed into a cost-effective polycarbonate body, available in one of six vibrant colors: Cloud Red, Cloud Orange, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, Cloud Navy and Cloud White. Oh, and did I mention that the Fan Edition should play well with all 5G networks? The 5G model for under 6 under $ 6 will debut in the US on October 2, right next to the 750G Wave 5G model, which will be exclusive to Verizon.
In previous years, a phone like this could be called the Galaxy S20e or Galaxy S20 Lite. Not this time. Samsung revived the nickname “Fan Edition”
It aims to bridge the gap between the company’s mid-range A-series smartphones and the more premium Galaxy S20 line. (In a conversation with reporters, Samsung calls this phone “connective tissue”, which does not have the same ring as the “Fan Edition”.) It aims to compensate for Samsung’s optics by releasing a bunch of really expensive phones during times of deep uncertainty. Most of all, however, it is intended for sale – and fast.
