Samsung unveils the Galaxy S20 FE – the most affordable S20
It comes with an R18 000 price tag though
Samsung’s newly unveiled S20 FE (Fan Edition) was designed with features that “Galaxy fans told us they love most,” according to the company. Billed as a premium device with an accessible price tag, the S20 FE has its sights set firmly on the content creation and social media generation who are looking for something that has a more premium branding than the popular A-Series.
