Samsung announced Friday that it’s launching cheaper versions of its flagship Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones. No price details or release dates were given for the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite.
Samsung wasn’t exactly generous with details, promising “key premium features” found in other Samsung phones at an “accessible price point.” That, of course, means nice cameras.
The S10 Lite, for instance, has a wide-angle camera, macro lens, and 123-degree ultra-wide lens. The big new feature is called “Super Steady OIS,” which is branded lingo for image stability for action shots. The Note 10 Lite, on the other hand, has all those sweet S Pen features you love, like clicking the button on the pen to take a photo or advance a presentation.
Aside from that, you get 6.7-inch displays, big 4,500 mAh batteries, and fast charging. Again, it remains to be seen just how much cheaper and downgraded these will be than the non-Lite versions, but they sound like decent phones in their own right.
Samsung’s official announcement came not long after leaked renders appeared via MySmartPrice. The press release confirmed the phones will be at CES in Las Vegas next week.
