The new Samsung Galaxy S20 FE variant has surfaced yet again, this time around, it popped up on the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). That listing confirmed that the phone will support wireless charging, as expected.

In addition to that, the listing confirms the phone’s design. If you take a look at the image below, you’ll notice that the design is basically identical to the other two models on the market. So, there will be no design changes, as expected.

The new Galaxy S20 FE variant will support wireless charging

The model that surfaced on WPC is the Samsung SM-G780G, the same one that appeared several times thus far. This phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 865 series SoC, but it won’t support 5G.

The current Galaxy S20 FE model with 5G is supported by the Snapdragon 865. Well, this variant will be identical in almost every way, except it won’t support 5G. It may also ship with the Snapdragon 865+, instead of the Snapdragon 865, we’ll see.

What’s interesting here, is that WPC lists 4.4W “maximum received power” for wireless charging. That’s quite odd, as the current Galaxy S20 FE models support 15W wireless charging. It’s possible (and probably) that the listed value relates to Wireless Power Share aka reverse wireless charging.

In addition to the existing Snapdragon 865 model, and the upcoming one, the Exynos 990 variant is also available in the market. That variant of the phone does not offer 5G either.

Samsung may stop manufacturing the Exynos 990 Galaxy S20 FE model altogether

Now, a rumor that surfaced yesterday said that Samsung plans to stop manufacturing the Exynos 990 model altogether. This Snapdragon 865 variant with 4G is expected to replace it.

The device will feature a 6.5-inch fullHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Three 12-megapixel cameras will be included on the back, while an in-display fingerprint scanner will also be a part of the package.
