Samsung might have launched the slightly more affordable Galaxy S10e alongside the flagship S10 earlier this year, but now the South Korean chaebol is hoping for an even larger slice of the pie with the forthcoming release of the Galaxy S10 Lite, which may also be marketed as the Galaxy A91 in select markets.
Similar in size and frame to its mainstay forebear, the S10 Lite is replete with three cameras and intends to launch into the market at this competitive time of year to add further lustre to the S10 lineup. The news is significant for the fact that the device may also compete with mid-rangers well into next year, especially considering the potential release of an iPhone SE 2.
Specifications are rumoured to include a Snapdragon (not Exynos) 855 chipset, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of storage with a MicroSD slot for expansion. The device will apparently sport a 6.7-inch Infinity-O hole-punch display with 2400 x 1080 pixels and 20:9 aspect ratio, placing it in the same territory (form factor-wise) as the flagship S10.
In terms of cameras, Samsung has staked its claim early with a 48 megapixel (f/2.0) main camera with optical image stabilization, alongside a 12 megapixel (f/2.2) ultra-wide and 5 megapixel (f/2.4) macro lens.
On the front panel, S10 Lite purchasers can expect a 32 megapixel (f/2.2) camera.
In terms of other specs, the S10 Lite is rumoured to pack in an impressive 4,500mAh battery with 45W fast-charging support.
The S10 Lite is tipped to retail for €680 EUR, and will arrive in three colours – namely black, white, or blue.
