Outside of the difference in network speed, the Galaxy S20 FE shares the same specs - the now-unified Snapdragon 865 processor, a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED with 120Hz refresh rate and 1080p resolution, triple camera (0.5x-1x-3x), 4,500mAh battery, microSD card slot and IP68 rating.
The modem is removed in those models. It cannot receive 5G signals at all.
