The Exynos 990 ran out, so all the S20 FEs turned into Qualcomm chips without any special fuss.
The Galaxy S20 FE is a fairly popular phone to this day. Cheaper than the S20, yet it knows almost everything, its display is flat, so it’s understandable that a lot of it is sold, but when it came out, it got the same Exynos 990 system chip as the S20, at least the 4G version, at least the in our region. Different sources Samsung said it had stopped production of the Exynos 990 chipset in early April, which no longer affected the S20 family, as the S21 series is already on the imaginary throne with another chip, but the S21 has no FE variant, so the S20 FE is marketed.
However, something needs to be done about this, so that the Snapdragon 865, which already exists in many markets, will be included in all S20 FEs. This chipset also supports 5G networks, but for 4G S20 FE devices, Samsung limits this. The Exynos 990 has received quite a bit of criticism for its consumption and warming problems with the Snapdragon 865, although not all users have experienced it as a drama, in most cases the Exynos 990 has served its purpose, but has occurred under prolonged, heavier loads. that the phone has limited performance and display brightness, and in extreme cases it is switched off. This may have been the case most of the hours when navigating under a windshield in a sunny location, but it is also a typical experience that the production provided by the chipset was not satisfactory in terms of operating time either.
In any case, the S20 FE’s newly arrived domestic stocks are now available in stores with Snapdragon chips, but where it is still from the previous stock, it is easy for the customer to buy the Exynos chip phone, so if this aspect is important, it’s worth it. be sure to find out carefully what kind of chipset is inside the box of the mobiles, and if you find a webshop where it is not indicated, it is worth asking about it before buying. The Samsung official does not comment on the change, all they say is that changes will be made to the supply chain needed to meet demand for production to ensure the smooth production of the product.
