Samsung Galaxy A20e – Samsung has released a compact variant of the Samsung Galaxy A20. The new Galaxy A20e comes in a smaller form for users who feel the Galaxy A20 is too big. Of course, its smaller form is at the expense of its specs being reduced also. But don’t worry, so will the price :). Aside from the Galaxy A20, this device will compete similar A-series smartphones like the Galaxy A30, Galaxy A40 and even the Galaxy M20.
Samsung Galaxy A20e Design
The design of the Galaxy A20e is simply straightforward, it features a front glass with plastic unibody. At the front of the device, we have a visible bottom chin, thin side bezels and waterdrop notch. The back, however, features a dual camera setup with LED flash, fingerprint reader and Samsung branding. The phone being compact makes it light in weight with just 141 grams. It didn’t make the device slim though as it measures 8.4 mm in thickness. The Galaxy A20e is available in Coral, Black, White and Blue body colours.

Samsung Galaxy A20e Display
At the expense of making a compact smartphone, the display was compromised. Unlike the Galaxy A20 which features a 6.4 inches display size, the Galaxy A20e sports a compact 5.8 inches display size. The display type we have here is PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. And it features 720 x 1560 pixels resolution plus 296 PPI density.

Like most lower level A-series smartphones, the Galaxy A20e comes with a dual camera system. The camera system sports a 13 MP (f/1.9) wide sensor and 5 MP (f/2.2) ultrawide sensor. At the front is a simple 8 MP selfie snapper with f/2.0 aperture. This is the exact same camera specs featured on the Galaxy A20.
