With 2019 beginning in full swing, the tech community is anxious regarding Samsung’s upcoming flagships, namely, the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Lite, S10 Plus, and possibly the S10 5G Edition. Several leaks have excited our taste buds so far and have also showcased a ton of details regarding how the Samsung plans to revolutionize this year’s premium smartphone segment with the S10 family of devices. However, one leak that did put a sore taste in our mouth was a leak that suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC instead of the newly-announced Snapdragon 855 SoC (more details).
However, that information was recently contradicted as Ice Universe has just suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would pack a Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 rather than the Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810 as touted by the previous S10 rumor.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would be the entry gate for those who want to enter Samsung’s flagship experience. As speculated previously, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would retail for about $699 and would gradually reduce its pricing as time progresses due to the stiff competition coming from the Chinese shores. That was even more notable when OnePlus made its way to the US with the introduction of the OnePlus 6T, eventually laying the ground for the launch of the upcoming OnePlus 7 with help of T-Mobile.
So far, leaks and renders have pretty much stood with the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would come with a flat-display rather than a curved one and would also feature an Infinity-O notch just like its elder brothers, the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. In addition to that, first leaks regarding the batteries of the Galaxy S10 family came out suggesting that the Galaxy S10 Lite would feature a 3100 mAh battery under the hood. If that seems too small for your 2018 tastebuds, display leaks regarding the upcoming Galaxy S10 family of devices suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite would have the sharpest display of the three/four S10 devices, clocking in about 585 PPI or 597 PPI depending on the display ratios.
There’s a ton of information out there regarding the Samsung Galaxy S10 family of devices, couple that with all of the hype users have regarding these device and Samsung has a ton of expectations to meet here. What’s left to be seen is whether Samsung plans to make 5G a standard on the whole S10 lineup or if, as leaks suggested, would be exclusive to a 5G-based variant that leaksters are dubbing as the S10 Plus 5G.
