Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite & S10 Lite officially announced
Samsung has officially announced two new flagships named the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite & Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. We were hearing about these two phones from quite some time & today, Samsung announced them on its Global Newsroom. As the names suggest, these are the “Lite” version of the Galaxy S10 & Galaxy Note 10, both of which were among Samsung’s best offerings for the year 2019.
SAMSUNG GALAXY S10 LITE – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
As we already know, there is an Infinity-O display on the front with the punch-hole centered on top, & a rectangular camera module on the rear with triple cameras & the LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is placed under the display. There is only a USB Type-C port on the bottom, so the S10 Lite doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, something that the Galaxy S10 series of 2018 had.
Talking about the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with an FHD+ resolution (2400×1080). As Samsung mentions on the official Newsroom – “Super AMOLED Plus display creates an ergonomic design with a thin and light display panel by adopting flexible OLED technology.” It is worth mentioning that it is a flat display, unlike the curved screen on the S10 & S10+ of last year.
While Samsung didn’t mention the name of the SOC, we know that it is an octa-core 7nm Snapdragon 855 chip (not the 855+). There is 6/8GB RAM & 128GB internal storage. On the rear, there is a triple camera setup that includes a primary 48 Megapixel unit with Super Steady OIS, a secondary 12MP Ultra-Wide-Angle lens & a 5MP Macro lens. There is a 32MP selfie camera.
The new Super Steady OIS, when combined with the Super Steady Mode, results in an impressive stabilization in videos. The ultra-wide-angle lens has a 123-degree FOV & the macro lens allows you to go super close to the subject.
Finally, there is a huge 4,500mAh battery with support for Fast Charging. Android 10 runs out of the box with OneUI 2.0 on top.
SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 10 LITE – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a similar design as the S10 Lite, but there are some minor changes like the square-ish camera housing on the rear, an S-Pen & what seems to be a smaller punch-hole than the one on S10 Lite. Moreover, the Note 10 Lite has a headphone jack, something that Samsung removed from 2018’s Note 10 lineup.
Unlike previous Note series phones, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite features a flat display that a lot of users prefer over the curved panels.
The display size & the resolution is the same as S10 Lite, i.e., a 6.7-inch Full-HD+ panel. On the official Newsroom, Samsung mentions “Super AMOLED” instead of “Super AMOLED Plus” as in the case of the S10 Lite. Under the hood, there is 10nm Exynos 9810 SOC, so it’s the same chipset that powered the Galaxy S9 series & the Note 9 of 2018.
Talking about the cameras, there is a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 12MP f/1.7 lens with OIS & Dual Pixel AF, a secondary 12MP Ultra-Wide-Angle lens & a third 12MP Telephoto lens with OIS. There is a 32MP selfie camera.
It is a “Note” series phone, so there is an S-Pen as well. With a simple click of the S-Pen, you can do a lot of things like controlling video content, taking a photo, navigate a presentation, etc. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a 4,500mAH battery with fast charging support.
Well, Samsung has only announced these two phones, so there is no information from the company on the pricing & availability. Samsung says that both these phones will be on display at the CES 2020. The color options for the Galaxy S10 Lite include Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Blue, while those for the Note 10 Lite are Aura Glow, Aura Black, and Aura Red.
