Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy S10 range of smartphones in Q1 of 2019 with major upgrades from the current generation. Recently Ben Geskin, a Concept designer has leaked the specifications and prices for the upcoming Galaxy S10 Lite. As the name suggests, it will be a low spec variant of the upcoming flagship Galaxy S10.
Galaxy S10 Lite Specifications:
The Galaxy S10 Lite will feature a flat Infinity-O display which the company recently showcased at their developer’s conference. The Infinity O is Samsung’s effort in creating a high screen-to-body ratio display. It has a circular cutout for the front-facing selfie camera and is surely a new approach when compared to the usual notch. The smartphone will have dual-rear cameras, exact details of which are unavailable at the moment.
The Galaxy S10 Lite will have a side mounted fingerprint sensor. It might be similar to the side mounted fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy A7 which also doubles as the power button. In terms of storage, the smartphone will be available in 3 RAM/ROM variants which are as follows:
- 4 GB RAM +64 GB ROM
- 6 GB RAM +64 GB ROM
- 6 GB RAM +128 GB ROM
However, the support for a microSD card is unclear as of now. Talking about the chipset, Ben Geskin suggests that the device will either have the Snapdragon 845 or the upcoming Snapdragon 8150. The Snapdragon 845 is an Octa-Core SoC based on 10 nm architecture whereas the Snapdragon 8150 is based on 7 nm architecture. Hence, it is a faster and efficient processor than the Snapdragon 845.
Galaxy S10 Lite Price
The twitter post suggests that the Galaxy S10 Lite will be priced between $ 650-750 (around Rs 47,000- Rs 54,000). The smartphone will most probably be launched during the Mobile World Congress 2019 which is set for 25-29 February. The company is also likely to showcase the highly anticipated foldable Galaxy F during the same event.
