Samsung plans to release Lite versions of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10

When it comes to manufacturing cutting edge, aesthetically pleasing, and, of course, dependable smartphones, Samsung is arguably the best in the business. This year, the company refreshed its S-series and Note-series lineups with the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, respectively, once again capturing a sizeable chunk of the market.

Both anniversary edition devices have been very well received by consumers, so much so, that the South Korean OEM is considering adding two more “affordable” devices to the lineups. As per a report by SamMobile, Samsung is currently working on Galaxy Note 10 Lite (SM-N770F) and S10 Lite (SM-G770F) and could unveil them in the coming months.

Galaxy Note 10 already has two variants — Note 10 Plus and Note 10 — while the S10 family has three members — S10 Plus, S10, and S10e. The S10e and Note 10 are the most affordable devices of their respective families and don’t come will all the bells and whistles of their more premium siblings.

SamMobile speculates that the upcoming Lite versions could be the most affordable S10 and Note 10 devices yet, but doesn’t give away their specs. The S10 Lite could share its hardware spec-sheet with the A91 — Snapdragon 855, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage — but that looks eerily identical to the original S10’s internals.

Things get even trickier for the Note 10 Lite, as we can’t possibly identify many areas where Samsung could cut corners. The camera and display could be key areas, but that probably won’t sit well with enthusiasts. It’s all speculation at this point, and we’ll probably just have to wait patiently for the next few months to see what Samsung has in store.
