After weeks and weeks of rumours and speculation, Samsung finally made two of its smartphones official. The Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite will be exhibited at the CES 2020. In a press release, Samsung recently talked about the basic specs of both these phones. Spec-wise, it looks like both the devices are pretty much the same. Both feature a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a punch-hole on top. Here, at the centre, resides the 32 MP selfie camera. Another common spec that both the phones have is the 4,500 mAh battery. With regards to other hardware, both devices have 128 GB of storage with either 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM, according to the variant you select.
Looking at software, both Galaxy S10 and Note 10 Lite come with Android 10 out of the box. This is one of the few devices at the moment which supports this. One UI 2.0 features here as well. So, where do these devices actually differ? Well, first of all, the camera. Although both have triple-lens arrays, the Galaxy S10 Lite has a 48 MP primary camera with “Super Steady OIS”, a 5 MP Macro camera for super-close shots, and thirdly, an ultra-wide 12 MP camera. The primary camera is designed to offer the best stability. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite features three 12 MP sensors. The primary has an f/1.7 sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus, while the other two sensors come with ultra-wide and telephoto lenses.
Features and Specs
Besides the camera, the processors of both devices are also quite different. The S10 Lite features a 7 nm 64-bit Octa-core processor while the Note 10 Lite boasts of a 10 nm 64-bit Octa-core processor. It is believed that these are Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9810 respectively. Another point of difference is the inclusion of an S-Pen. Where the Galaxy Note 10 Lite comes with an S Pen, the other does not. Of course, it connects wirelessly and can be stowed within a silo on the device. Other features are the same, such as the presence of the Samsung Notes app and more.
At the CES 2020, we can expect both these devices to be exhibited by Samsung. While the specs and features have been advanced by the company, there is no word on the pricing yet. We will get to know that at the event. The Note 10 Lite will be available in Aura Glow, Aura Black, and Aura Red. The S10 Lite will come to be available in Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Blue.
Samsung recently confirmed the launch date for the Galaxy S10 Lite device. It is set to be released on January 23, starting sales from the popular online platform, Flipkart. India is expected to be among the first markets where this phone is likely to be launched. The upcoming phone will feature Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB RAM. So far, there has been no news about the release of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in India.
