At this price point, it’s frivolous not to draw comparisons between the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition and the OnePlus 8 series, another popular “value flagship” lineup in India. Samsung’s smartphone will apparently slot in nicely between the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro, priced at Rs. 41,999 ($575) and Rs. 54,999 ($750), respectively. And it may very well end up being more affordable than both the 8T and 8T which are expected to be announced later this week.
One plus eight minus eighty
So, it would appear Samsung intends to give OnePlus a run for its money this fall. Or at least, that’s what consumers should hope for. In a regular year, the Galaxy S20 FE would also likely face fierce competition from Huawei, but Trump took care of Samsung’s number one rival in the world’s number two smartphone market (and every other bar China) this time around.
But better to pickup S20+ over this during sale.
