Samsung has introduced this phone in brilliant color. The Galaxy S20FE can be purchased in Cloud Navy, Cloud White, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Mint, and Cloud Red Color. We used the Cloud Mint variant for the review. The Galaxy S20FE is the first Samsung phone to have a matte finish glass on its back panel. To some extent, it is similar to the silicone coating. The advantage of this finishing is that there are no fingerprints on the back panel and the phone does not slip by hand.

All types of buttons are found on the right. The camera is provided with three lenses on the back panel. The camera setup is rectangular in shape and comes with a bulge. In such a situation, without using a strong back cover phone, there is a fear of breaking the camera lens or scratching it. The body of the phone is plastic, but a metal frame has been used.

The SIM card tray has got a place on the top of the phone. The bottom has a single speaker, microphone, and USB Type-C charging port. The weight of this phone is 190 grams. The phone has a 6.5-inch Full HD Plus display, which is Super AMOLED. The resolution of the display is 1080x2400 pixels. The sharpness, color, and contrast are great with the display.
