Galaxy S20 FE DxOMark ranking is unsurprisingly mid-range

Samsung said that it created the Galaxy S20 FE, short for Fan Edition, to give Galaxy fans the smartphone they want. In its mind, those fans wanted near-flagship specs, a decent camera, and an accessible price tag. To some extent, Samsung was actually able to deliver those, much to the chagrin of owners of the Galaxy S20 base model.

Next Samsung Exynos flagship to have AMD GPU

Back in mid-2019, Samsung and AMD announced a partnership that, to this day, has born no visible or tangible fruit. Given one of AMD's specializations, it was pretty much speculated that Samsung would eventually utilize AMD's expertise on the GPU front to give Samsung's Exynos chips a graphics boost, probably even in two year's time. Those two years are almost up and as if on cue, Samsung itself has actually confirmed that, perhaps by the end of the year or next year, your next premium Galaxy phone could have graphics muscles to rival some mobile PCs.
