The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition has already leaked a few times, but now some key specs have been confirmed for a formidable iPhone 12 rival.
According to MyFixGuide, the Galaxy S20 FE has received TENNA certification, which shows the phone’s screen size, an impressive battery size and the overall dimensions of the handset.
The first piece of information from this certification is that the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition should have a 6.5-inch display. This would be between the 6.2-inch Galaxy S20 and the 6.7-inch Galaxy S20 Plus.
A previous leak states that the Galaxy S20 FE̵
In the meantime, the iPhone 12 Max is expected to have a 6.1-inch OLED screen, which is probably the closest thing to the Galaxy S20 FE. And rumor has it that Apple will only offer 120 Hz panels for the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro models.
The second key spec for the Galaxy S20 FE from this leak is the confirmed 4,500 mAh battery, which is the same size as the Galaxy S20 Plus. The iPhone 12 Max is said to contain a 2,815 mAh battery that would be considerably smaller.
However, Apple could even score points with its A14 bionic chip, which is based on a 5 nm manufacturing process and is said to be up to 30% more efficient than the A13.
Finally, TEENA certification for the Galaxy S20 FE states that the dimensions will be 159.8 x 74.5 x 8.4 mm, which is 6.2 x 2.9 x 0.33 inches. That would be a bit more compact than the Galaxy S20 Plus (6.37 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches), but a bit thicker.
We don’t have dimensions for the iPhone 12 Max yet, but rumor has it that it features a thinner design with angular sides, similar to the iPhone 4 and the latest iPad Pro.
Other rumors say that the Galaxy S20 FE includes a Snapdragon 865 or 865 Plus processor, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. You should also purchase three rear cameras, including a 12-megapixel main shooter, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom.
Apple is reportedly reserving its telephoto camera for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. It will likely add a LiDAR sensor for enhanced portraits and auto focus, as well as improved performance in iPhone AR apps.
We heard that the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition will cost around $ 750 while the iPhone 12 Max is reportedly priced at $ 799. Given some of the tech advantages of the S20 Fan Edition, it could definitely steal some of Apple’s thunder. And it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait long.
