This year's celebration of capitalism Prime Day has finally arrived, and Samsung has a few sales to mark the occasion. You can now get some of the company's top flagship and budget phones at a great price, including the Galaxy S20, A71, and Note20. However, the recently-launched Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is not among the sales.
Bringing the best of the S20 lineup at a more affordable price point, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition last month. We think it might even be one of the best phones of 2020, and that's saying something. Despite being a brand-new device, you can already save $160 off the retail price by picking up a factory unlocked International model for just $539.99 on eBay.
Samsung's top-end phones are getting more and more expensive at an alarming rate, as evidenced by the fact that very few people bought an S20 during the series's launch window. Seeing the gap to fill between bargain-bin budget phones and outright luxury devices, this week, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. It costs $700 (currently $600 on sale), and it packs a ton of features we're used to seeing in flagships with very few compromises. This might just be the best phone of the year.
Today, Google officially announced the extremely leaked Pixel 5. It's a lovely device with a very cool green colorway option, and as an unrepentant Google hardware fan, I'm struggling against the urge to buy it. Honestly, there's only one thing stopping me: the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, launching early next month, is the exact same price at $699. And on paper, it's a much better value.
The Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) keeps the Snapdragon 865, 120Hz display, and triple-camera setup from the higher-end S-series phones while landing at a much more attractive price point. Samsung just unveiled the S20 FE earlier today, but it looks like you can already save $100 off the already-low $699 MSRP by ordering from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo.
Samsung makes a lot of affordable phones in its A series, but its flagships have become notoriously pricey — case in point, the uber-premium Note20 Ultra starts at $1,300. Today, at its Unpacked for Every Fan event, Samsung is officially announcing a sort of middle ground in the Galaxy S20 FE, a surprisingly well-equipped device at a refreshingly fair price. OnePlus better watch out.

Yes, you read that title right. Even though Samsung just had an Unpacked event slightly over a month ago, where the Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Watch3, and other products were revealed, Samsung is going to hold yet another livestream in just a couple days.
A good wallpaper can make a phone feel whole. It's what really ends up bringing the visual experience of a phone together. That's why wallpapers are so important, especially on devices from phone-makers like Samsung. Sometimes Samsung make mistakes, like uploading an unreleased device's firmware really early, and that lets us dig through it to find these great wallpapers.
While you can download the Galaxy S20 FE wallpapers right now, the Galaxy S20 FE hasn't actually been announced yet. Yesterday, Samsung announced Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan where they are likely going to announce the Galaxy S20 FE, but at the moment nothing is official.
We've already seen some renderings of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, but thanks to some not very well-disguised 360-degree views hosted on Verizon's website, we now know that this S20 Lite of sorts will be coming stateside. The phone will come in three pretty eye-catching colors.
