In late March, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 FE 5G in India featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. However, the 4G variant of the handset was still powered by the Exynos 990 SoC. Now, the South Korean giant has silently launched the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC chipset, making both 4G and 5G variants of the phone run the Qualcomm chip.
According to the reports, the new variant of the Galaxy S20 FE 4G with Snapdragon 865 SoC has been launched in several markets including Germany, Malaysia, and Vietnam. The Qualcomm-powered S20 4G comes with model number SM-G780G. Notably, this model number is slightly different from the original Exynos-powered S20 FE 4G model number SM-G780F. Apart from the change in SoCs, both the variants of the Galaxy S20 FE 4G are identical. The S20 4G with Exynos 990 was launched in India and various global markets last year.
