There’s been quite a lot of talk about Samsung’s intention to launch the Galaxy S10 Lite, which as the name suggests, was expected to be a more affordable version of the early 2019 flagship. Well, the phone has just leaked out, and there are a couple of surprises onboard. The leak was accessed by Winfuture.de, while also revealing the pricing details of the device.
To begin with, the Galaxy S10 Lite is believed to be packing a 6.7-inch display packing a resolution of 2400 x 1080. Further, the phone is also packing a 48MP rear camera with something known as the tilt-OIS technology. This will be accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide sensor and a 5MP macro lens on the back. It is also said that the phone will be packing the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, accompanied by 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, although it’s not known if the phone will also carry a microSD card slot. There’s no mention of another CPU variant here, suggesting that Samsung will offer the phone in only one variant all over the world.
Lastly, the phone will reportedly pack a 4,500 mAh battery, which should be sufficient enough to last a day or two with a single charge. As for the pricing, the site claims that it will cost 679 Euros, which is equivalent to around $750. While the pricing or hardware doesn’t suggest that this is a “Lite” device, it’s clear that Samsung is looking to tap into the mid-range market segment with this new offering. We may be some distance from the launch of the device, however, so we recommend taking this report with a pinch of salt for the time being.
