Even though the Galaxy S20 FE
was far from the mobile tech world's best-kept secret, leaking profusely ahead of its official announcement around a month ago
still managed to catch everyone off guard by slapping the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865 powerhouse with a recommended price tag of $700 stateside.
As usual, Verizon
was not quite as generous as its wireless industry rivals, releasing a special Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G UW edition
a little later than everyone else and requiring some extra hoop-jumping for folks looking to shave a few hundred bucks off the aforementioned retail price.
Luckily, that's where Best Buy comes in, letting Verizon customers save up to $200 with (almost) no strings attached. You just need to purchase the inexpensive high-end smartphone in one of four snazzy color options (Cloud Navy, Cloud Mint, Cloud Lavender, or Cloud Red) on a two-year installment plan, and instead of paying $31.25 a month, you'll be coughing up $20.83 every 30 days for the duration of that contract
, amounting to a grand total of around $500.
While Best Buy lists that as a $250 markdown, the nation's largest wireless service provider does typically charge $700 for this bad boy, so you are technically looking at saving only $200 compared to that, whether you're a new or an upgrading Verizon subscriber, and perhaps most intriguingly, whether or not you're willing to open a new line of service.
The rest of the specifications are virtually unbeatable at $700, let alone $500, including the aforementioned state-of-the-art Snapdragon 865 SoC, as well as a beautiful Super AMOLED display with a centered hole punch and 120Hz refresh rate support, a generous 128 gigs of internal storage space paired with 6 gigs of memory, a hefty 4,500mAh battery, three rear-facing cameras, and a single 32MP selfie shooter.
