Last week, Samsung took the curtains off its latest Galaxy S and Note series smartphones called the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Soon after the launch, the company enabled the “Notify me” button on its website in India for both the phones, which hinted at their imminent launch in the country. While the brand hasn’t yet officially announced the launch date of the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite in India, a gadget tipster has leaked it. In addition, a report by the Indo Asian News Service has suggested what price point the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite smartphone will be available in the country.
