Samsung, it seems, is not content with having just two versions of the Galaxy Note 10 devices. As you might be probably aware, the company sells the Galaxy Note 10 and the Note 10+ in several markets across the globe. In addition to these two existing models, the company plans to launch a relatively affordable variant of the phone in the coming weeks. The new handset is called the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, and once launched, it will be positioned below the Galaxy Note 10. While we have been hearing about the existence of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite for a while now, folks from over at Winfuture.de have, for the first time, posted clear images of the handset along with its detailed specifications. Let’s check what these specifications are.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite Specifications, Features
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite may have the ‘Lite’ suffix, but from what we currently know about the phone, it will be physically almost as large as the existing Note 10+ thanks to its 6.7-inch display (the Note 10+ has a 6.8-inch panel). Where the phone goes really ‘lite’ is with the internals. The Winfuture report hints at the phone being powered by the old Exynos 9810 SoC. This is the same chipset that the Indian version Of last year’s Galaxy S9 used. This 10nm chip, while still capable of offering decent performance, is no match for the newer chips, especially from Qualcomm. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite is also expected to ship with at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There is no clarity if the internal storage would be of the UFS type.
The phone gets a microSD card slot for memory expansion as well. Being a Note series device, it will also ship with a stylus. As mentioned earlier in this article, the Note 10 Lite comes with a large 6.7-inch Super AMOLED, 398 PPI display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The display supports HDR content as well. The phone will ship with a large 4500mAh battery with support for Samsung’s 25W adaptive fast charging. At launch, the Note 10 Lite will launch with Android 10 based Samsung One UI 2 preinstalled. The handset comes with a lot of connectivity features, including support for Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type C, NFC, WiFi AC (2.4 + 5 GHz), WiFi direct, and Smart View.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite Camera Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite gets a triple camera setup at the rear consisting of three 12-megapixel sensors. The primary camera gets an f/1.7 lens with support for dual pixel autofocus while the secondary camera gets an f/2.2 lens. The third camera uses a telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture. At the front, the handset gets a 32 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and, more importantly, support for autofocus.
Current expectations are that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 would be officially launched on January 10, 2010.
