It seems that Samsung has not finished with hardware announcements for this year. We already have two unpacked events from August – one for the announcement of the Note 20 range and another for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in early September – and now an additional event is scheduled for September 23.
Samsung’s website in the US says that this unpacked event is for “every fan”, which makes us wonder if the leaks and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite – also potentially called the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition – are really true.
It is not entirely clear whether the names Lite and FE are for the same device, or should be two different models, but both names are identified in official materials and spotted by eagle-eyed Twitter users.
They can also be a regional brand for the same device, with Samsung̵
Either way, the S20 Lite or S20 Fan Edition has been running specs on a new Samsung phone for some time. According to previous reports, it will retain some of the key features of the S20 range – such as a 120Hz display and a Snapdragon 865 processor – but the screen will be limited to 1080p resolution to reduce costs.
Exactly how much this price will be is still a mystery, but the countdown has begun and we are not too far from understanding what the latest Samsung Unpacked event is.
