It's now official about the "Lite" version of Samsung's last year flagships that undoubtedly puts an end to the numerous leaks and speculation over the past few weeks. Finally, the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite became official. Together with improved camera features, they bring the premium flagship-grade features from the renowned S and Note series flagships to a larger audience.
The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite have the same non-curved 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and 394ppi. They also come in with configurations of 6 GB or 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Certain differences include a punch-hole 32MP selfie camera at the top center of the monitor, an ultra-wide 12MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, an optical in-screen fingerprint sensor, no 3.5 mm headphone jack, a 4,500mAh battery, and an Android-based One UI 2.0.
Sammobile stated that the Galaxy S10 Lite is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, whereas Exynos 9810 SoC is powered by the Galaxy Note10 Lite. In both devices, however, the chipset may differ based on the regions they are being sold. The chipset names were not explicitly stated by Samsung yet.
Other than that, although they both have a triple camera setup, the sensors included in them vary from each other except for the same ultra-wide 12MP as described above. The S10 Lite sports an f/2.0 aperture 48MP main sensor and Super Steady OIS supported by an f/2.4 aperture 5MP macro shooter. On another hand, the Note10 Lite sports a 12MP main camera with f/1.7 aperture and OIS combined again with OIS and f/2.4 apertures with a 12MP telephoto lens.
At CES 2020, Samsung will expectedly present both the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note10 Lite. For now, the specifics of price and availability are still under wraps, so stay tuned over the coming days for on-ground updates from the CES 2020 show in Las Vegas.
