Samsung has announced two new smartphones — Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite. In its announcement post, Samsung called the upcoming launch of these devices a means to bring “signature Galaxy innovation” to more people.
Before I dive into the details, let me tell you that Samsung is yet to announce the prices of these devices. So, I’d advice you take Samsung’s promise of a budget flagship with a grain of salt. Still, if you’re planning to buy Galaxy S10 and Note 10 anytime soon, you should wait for a few days.
Galaxy S10 Lite And Note 10 Lite Specs Worth The Wait?
Starting with the biggest highlight, these cheaper S10 Lite ships with the Snapdragon 855 processor. You’ll find the same chip in regular S10 as well, so you don’t have to worry about the performance capabilities of the device.
However, in the case of Note 10 Lite, you get Exynos 8895 10nm chip, which isn’t as powerful as the original Note 10’s Exynos 9825 7nm chip. While Exynos 8895 is still a very capable chip, it’d be interesting to see how much price customers will need to pay for Note 10 Lite.
Moving on to the display, both smartphones sport a 6.7-inch full-screen display with a central cutout for a 32MP front camera at the top. This makes Note 10 Lite smaller than Note 10’s 6.3-inch and bigger than Note 10+’s 6.8-inch displays. For S10 Lite, this is a different story as it’s bigger than both S10 and S10+.
