Samsung may soon discontinue the Exynos variant of its Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE). The phone was launched in 4G and 5G variants. The 4G variant has Samsung’s own Exynos SoC and the 5G variant is powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC.
As per leakster Ice Universe, Samsung will stop making the Exynos 990 version of the phone and replace it with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ processor. Samsung had launched the 4G version in the country last October and the 5G variant powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC was launched in India just last week.
Further, as per tipster’s tweet, there may be another variant with the slightly more powerful Snapdragon 865+ SoC. 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 Snapdragon 865 model.
