Samsung is bringing the Snapdragon Galaxy S20 FE to India to challenge the OnePlus 9
The 4G-only variant, which is powered by the Exynos 990, is already available in the country.
5G is still not available in the world's second-largest smartphone market, which may mean that the South Korean giant is bringing the Snapdragon 865-fueled edition to the country to compete with the recently announced OnePlus 9.
Samsung usually follows a dual-chip strategy with its flagships. The North American and Chinese models get a Snapdragon chip, and the rest of the markets get Samsung's Exynos SoC. Qualcomm's flagship SoCs seem to have an edge, but the difference has narrowed this year with the launch of the Exynos 2100 that underpins the Galaxy S21 series. The Galaxy S10 Lite was one of the rare exceptions.
Samsung has already started teasing the Snapdragon Galaxy S20 FE launch in India and per one tipster, it will hit the shelves on March 30.
As I mentioned earlier, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G Snapdragon Edition (865) has already arrived in the country. The FIRST SALE of the device will start on March 30, 2021— Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) March 25, 2021
