Samsung launched its very own 'flagship killer' type device, the Galaxy S20 FE, last year with two SoCs - the in-house developed Exynos 990 for the 4G version, and the Snapdragon 865 for the 5G model.


Recently we've seen a Galaxy S20 FE 4G with the Snapdragon chip doing the rounds in benchmarks, and now a usually reliable leakster says this is basically the future. As in, Samsung will stop making the Exynos-powered Galaxy S20 FE 4G, and use the Snapdragon "865+" for this model instead.


That would be an interesting 180, but surely a lot of people are going to feel vindicated by this decision, considering the performance and battery life and camera quality delta between the two chipsets. There was a pretty big and nasty controversy last year on the topic, especially regarding the non-FE S20 line, where you couldn't get both chip options as Samsung regionally decided which to use.


At least with the FE, if you wanted the Snapdragon variant, you got the 5G version and you were set. Turns out that soon enough you won't even have to do that, as all Galaxy S20 FE units will have a Snapdragon at their core. That is, of course, if this rumor pans out, which we don't know yet, so don't forget your grain of salt for this one.

Asking for Exynos processor for phone is same as asking for Underperforming overheating device.

No asking for an exynos based is like asking for a pan to cook paratha on it 🙄
