Samsung was rumoured to have got a Lite version of the flagship Galaxy S10 in the works right from January last year. The rumour was rekindled a couple of months back with renders and leaks of the device appearing online. The tech giant has now officially unveiled the Galaxy S10 Lite today, ending several months of speculations. The device was launched alongside a Galaxy Note 10 Lite, both bringing flagship-level quality to mid-range models.
As for the specifications, the Galaxy S10 Lite packs a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display. The display panel has a bigger size than the Galaxy S10+’s 6.4-inch QHD+ screen and is equally embedded with a fingerprint sensor. One major design difference between this model and the Galaxy S10 is that even though both models pack a punch-hole design, the Galaxy S10 Lite’s is centrally placed and not right-aligned like it is on the other Galaxy S10 handsets.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and will be available in 6GB/8GB RAM variants with 128GB of internal storage. There’s a 4,500mAh battery keeping the lights on with support for 25W super-fast wired charging. Android 10 and One UI 2.0 come pre-installed with a whole host of other Samsung features like Bixby, AR Emoji, Samsung Pay and more.
For photography, the Galaxy S10 Lite packs a triple camera setup which is the same as the one on the Galaxy A51. The camera setup includes a primary 48-megapixel f/2.0 camera with Super Steady OIS, a 12-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide and a 5-megapixel f/2.4 macro camera. The new Super Steady OIS is paired with the camera’s Super Steady mode for higher stability in action-focused photos and videos. The front punch-hole houses a 32-megapixel f/2.2 camera.
The Galaxy S10 series, the Galaxy S10 Lite will be available in Prism Black, White and Blue colors when it goes on sale in the near future. Samsung is yet to announce the pricing and release details but that will be done in the coming days.
