Korean electronics giant Samsung is introducing us to the S10 Lite & Note 10 Lite, which as you’d expect, slightly lower-spec variants of 2019’s flagships. Here’s the rundown on all the specs and all the information you need to know.
The Galaxy S10 Lite is powered likely by a Snapdragon 855 (based on numbers), but instead of a triple focal range camera in the back, it gets a 48MP main sensor, 12MP Ultrawide, and 5MP Macro. By ditching its main 12MP sensor, it joins the bandwagon of high megapixel main cameras popularized in Asia and even the selfie is upgraded to 32MP.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite surprisingly packs a different processor which closely matches the Exynos 9810 – the same processor used on the Galaxy Note 9 over a year ago. You do get triple focal lengths though and all at 12MP (wide, ultrawide, tele). The front facing camera is upgraded to 32MP, and you still keep the S-Pen functionality.
Both phones feature a large 6.7″ AMOLED HDR Display with a small top cutout in the middle and have a 2400×1080 resolution. The displays are no longer curving at the sides though, so these are effectively flat displays. They still do offer in-diplay fingerprint authentication, though we’re not sure if they’re Ultrasonic sensors or Optical sensors.
Batteries on both phones are rated at 4.5 Ah (4,500mAh), which are admittedly slightly larger than the 2019 flagships’. And for RAM and storage we start at 6GB + 128GB with MicroSD expansions, with variants that likely will have up to 8GB of RAM.
Most importantly, we don’t yet know if these phones will have advanced features like IP68 Waterproofing, Samsung Dex productivity mode, NFC, wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and the like. Heck, we don’t even have full details on these cameras to know if they have OIS or Dual Aperture Lenses.
The Note 10 Lite has a headphone jack, while the S10 Lite doesn’t. A role reversal from last year, since the S10 series had headphone jacks and the Note 10 didn’t back in 2019.
Aside from the specs of course, these phones offer a look into the new 2020 modern design cues of Samsung’s phones – which include the new iconic box of cameras on the upper left corner of the phone’s back.
For pricing, GSMArena quotes the Note 10 Lite to cost €599, while the S10 Lite will cost €649. That translates to roughly PHP 35,000 and PHP 37,000 – or US$ 670 and US$ 725 respectively. Cheaper than their 2019 flagship brethren, but definitely not in the same range as flagship killers from other brands.
We’ll know more about these two new phones this coming CES 2020, which will be held in Las Vegas on January 7-10, so stay tuned for more updates!
