After tons of speculations and hype, Samsung has finally gone ahead and announced the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite today. The device has been announced alongside the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. While Samsung hasn’t revealed the pricing of the new S Lite series devices, we can expect them to be more affordable variants of their flagships siblings. Speaking on the launch, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics, said “The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite will introduce those distinct key premium features that make up a Galaxy S and Galaxy Note experience.” Let’s take a look at what the Galaxy S10 Lite has to offer.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite specifications and features
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite features a large 6.7-inch signature Infinity-O display, with a centred punch-hole selfie camera that we saw on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The Super AMOLED panel offers a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels. The display size is bigger than the one on the Samsung Galaxy S10, however, the screen resolution is lower. Samsung hasn’t specified the processor on the Galaxy S10 Lite, but has mentioned that it is a 7nm 64-bit octa-core SoC. It comes with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On the software front, the handset boots Android 10 out of the box.
In the imaging department, the Galaxy S10 Lite flaunts a triple square-shaped camera setup on the back featuring 48MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and Super Steady OIS, backed by a 12MP wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP macro lens with f/2.4 aperture. For selfies and video calling, the centred punch-hole cutout houses a 32MP snapper with f/2.2 aperture. Lastly, the latest launch comes powered by a beefy 4,500mAh battery with support for “super fast charging”, however, the exact charging speed has not been specified.
