Samsung Launches their New Budget Smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A20e
Samsung has released a number of premium smartphones to begin the year. In order to cater to consumers in the lower-priced spectrums, they have decided to release a series of new smartphones that offer great features at friendly prices.
Samsung is on a roll this year as they have released a number of new smartphones to the market. They have recently released the Samsung Galaxy A20, a device which caters to entry-level users. To further bolster their hold in the market, the South Korean tech company released another new offering - the Samsung Galaxy A20e.
The Samsung Galaxy A20e is the smaller version of the Galaxy A20 and the difference can be immediately seen at first glance - the Galaxy A20e has a smaller 5.8-inch LCD display panel versus the 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display panel of the Galaxy A20. Despite using different display panels, both smartphones still use the same HD+ 720 x 1560 pixel resolution. Both display panels also feature the Infinity V notch which houses the 8MP selfie camera. To keep costs low, Samsung uses a plastic-based form factor.
Moving to the rear, the Samsung Galaxy A20e features a dual-camera setup that consists of the main 13MP sensor, which has an aperture of f/1.9, and a secondary 5MP ultra-wide sensor. The same camera setup is also present on the Galaxy A20. For added biometric security, Samsung placed the fingerprint reader on the rear of the phone as well, located across the LED flash module.
The new smartphone is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 7884 chipset which features an octa-core processor with clock speeds of up to 1.6GHz. The chipset is paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, which is expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.
Since the Samsung Galaxy A20e has a smaller form factor, the battery size is smaller compared to the Galaxy A20 at 3,000mAh, which can still last for the entire day at moderate use. The Galaxy A20e's battery pack supports fast charging at 15 watts.
For reference, the Galaxy A20 was launched in the Indian market for INR 12,490 (around PHP 9,000) and it would be safe to say that the Galaxy A20e will be launched at a lower price point, making it even more affordable for consumers on a budget.
The Galaxy A20e will be available in Black and White color options, but other details like the release dates and pricing are yet to be revealed, so stay tuned for more details.
