Some leaks have indicated that Samsung is looking to launch its 2 cheaper flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite. The Korea Herald reported both devices have been rumored for months and expected to be announced at CES next month. The publication didn’t mention any source, but the timing would make sense. Samsung will almost certainly need to announce its next Galaxy flagship, supposedly the S11, at the Mobile World Congress in the month of February. WinFuture.de has revealed a slew of specs for the S10 Lite that corroborates previous rumors and speculation. The phone will reportedly ship with a 6.7-inch display Super-AMOLED display that has a 2400×1080 resolution and a hole-punch for the 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The site also claimed that the phone could be a rebranded version of the rumored Galaxy A91. It will have a Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, coupled with a microSD slot that supports cards up to 1TB. Rounding out the rumored spec sheet is a 48-megapixel primary camera backed up by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel macro. It is an impressive phone that would easily beat the mid-range Galaxy S10e. WinFuture.de also said the S10 Lite will be sold for $753, which is roughly the same as what the S10e cost at launch in 2018.
It is noteworthy that reports have pointed out the Note 10 Lite. It will have a similar 6.7-inch Super-AMOLED display with an Exynos 9810 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage, backed up by a microSD slot that supports up to 512GB cards. The phone will also ship with a headphone jack. Samsung is keeping the 3.5mm dream alive and 3 different 12-megapixel cameras dedicated to everyday shooting, telephoto, and wide-angle photography. These will be complemented by a 32-megapixel selfie shooter tucked away in a hole-punch notch, like the S10 Lite. WinFuture.de also said Samsung will launch the device for $674 during January 2020 in Europe.
