Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 10 Lite alongside the Galaxy S10 Lite earlier this month. The company is yet to reveal when the models will launch in India but India blog 91mobiles credits industry sources to have disclosed that reservations for the smartphone will go live on retail and online stores across India from January 21.
The sources are also said to have disclosed that the device will be released in mid-February. This may likely be after the global launch of the Galaxy S20 series on February 11. Also, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite reservations will commence just a few days before the Galaxy S10 Lite’s India launch scheduled to take place on January 23. Pricing is expected to start at Rs 35,990 for the base variant.
As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite sports a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O display, slightly smaller than the Galaxy Note 10+’s 6.8-inch QHD+ display. The Note 10 Lite is powered by an Exynos 9810 SoC which was used on the Galaxy S9 from 2018. The device is available in 6GB/8GB RAM options and 128GB storage which is expandable up to 1TB via microSD card.
For photography, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite features a triple rear camera setup. At the front, the device packs a 32-megapixel f/2.2 sensor. The device equally comes equipped with an S-Pen which the Galaxy Note series is known for. While its S Pen does have Bluetooth Low-Energy support, it doesn’t have a 6-axis sensor, so you can’t do any of the cool gestures that you can with the Galaxy Note 10/10+’s S Pen. But Samsung did add the Text Export feature which allows users to transfer handwritten notes into text for quick sharing.
As for the interface, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite runs on Android 10-based One UI 2.0 out of the box. It also has features like Bixby, Samsung Pay, AR Emoji, and facial recognition. There’s a fingerprint sensor embedded in the display as well. Keeping the lights on is a massive 4500mAh battery which is even bigger than the Galaxy Note 10+’s 4,300mAh battery. The battery supports 25W super-fast wired charging.
The device comes in Aura Black, Aura Glow and Aura Red colours.
