Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition – FE, if you prefer – was a very successful smartphone, appreciated by both professionals and the public, and the numbers of sales recently released by the South Korean manufacturer certify it.
Samsung’s flagship 2020 series was not born under the best auspices, having just preceded the lockdown of the world in the grip of COVID-19, and in fact the sales numbers of the model family consisting of Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 + and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G had been far worse than expected.
To revive the fortunes of the series we had then thought of the cheapest Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, initially proposed in an Exynos 4G version and a 5G version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and then also in a third version always with Snapdragon 865 but only 4G.
Thanks also to the subsequent sharp drop in price that gave it a sort of second youth, the smartphone sold very well and a statement that Samsung issued via email to colleagues testifies to this. 9to5Google: in just over a year of career, or in the period starting from the launch in Q4 2020, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has been sold in over 10 million units. This figure makes it one of the best-selling Samsung smartphones of the last year.
Numbers of this type, combined with the fact that the still excellent Samsung Galaxy S21 series was not exactly selling in an exciting way, could be the basis of the choice of the Korean house to re-propose the “FE” experiment: Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has just arrived on the market also in Italy (a this link you will find our proof), although with somewhat questionable timing, and is already on offer at a much more attractive price than the list price.
