Now, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has been in the rumor mill for quite a lot of time. We’ve seen a bunch of rumors since, but today – the Galaxy S10 Lite completely exposed and we know nearly everything about this upcoming smartphone.
Nah, Samsung actually just officially unveiled the new Galaxy S10 Lite. Yes, it’s now official. No more leaks.
All About Samsung has posted this video on YouTube showcasing the Galaxy S10 Lite in all of its glory. We got all the details here and hey – it’s looking to be a great smartphone – but we still don’t have the price just yet.
Let’s just start with the specs first. Despite its “lite” postfix, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is actually looking up to be a very strong flagship smartphone and comes with a humongous screen with lots of performance horsepower.
- 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2400×1080 pixels in resolution
- Punch-hole at the center-top
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset
- Up to 8GB RAM
- 128GB internal storage (expandable via microSD)
- Triple rear-facing cameras
- Main: 48MP f/2.0 with a new Super Steady OIS system
- Ultrawide angle: 12MP f/2.2
- Macro: 5MP f/2.4
- 32MP f/2.2 selfie camera
- 4,500mAh battery
- Supports 45W charging
- Android 10 with Samsung One UI 2.0
The video also stated that the Galaxy S10 Lite will come with a plastic back and does not have the 3.5mm audio jack. That is quite a bummer since we can safely say now that Samsung is indeed leaving out the audio jack permanently.
One interesting feature here is the new super steady OIS. In the video, it is shown and stated that the new suspension that “compensates ±1~3%” of movement. This is a purely optical stabilization and has zero cropping. Since it is fully optical, there is no artifact like any other EIS systems on smartphones.
From the demonstration of the new super steady OIS, it looks very steady, as if there is a gimbal built right into the OIS system in the Galaxy S10 Lite.
The Galaxy S10 Lite already has some aspects of the upcoming Galaxy S11 (or Galaxy S20, whatever they want to call it), like how the camera bump looks. From what we can see, the camera bump isn’t that large anyway.
Like many other tech enthusiasts, I am quite confused by the release time – or perhaps the naming – of the Galaxy S10 Lite. Perhaps Samsung should wait for a little more and launch it as the Galaxy S11 Lite (or the Galaxy S20 Lite) instead.
Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy S10 Lite. We still do not have any details about its price yet, though.
