The Galaxy S10 series is at the tail end of its shelf life, with the next generation Galaxy S20 set to be unpacked in less than two weeks’ time. That isn’t stopping Samsung from delivering yet another model in its flagship Galaxy S line-up—the Galaxy S10 Lite, the fifth under the banner. Like the Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 Lite offers many of the key flagship-level features of the S10 and S10+. What’s interesting is that it brings several enhancements of its own. Seeing that it’s offered at the same pricing as the Galaxy S10e, it may prove muddling for consumers.
Samsung’s much-talked about “Lite” duo of Galaxy smartphones are here in Malaysia. The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite build upon the legacy of the flagship Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. Simply put, they pack key premium features including the latest camera tech, signature S Pen, immersive display and big battery. In short, not “light” on features, simply lighter on the wallet.
After a spate of online leaks, Samsung has officially announced a duo of “Lite” devices—the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Just like “Lite” branded labels on seemingly lesser versions of our favourite food and beverages, this new duo certainly doesn’t fall short on the spec sheets. While I can understand the introduction of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, I’m slightly baffled by the Galaxy S10 Lite, seeing that the Galaxy S10e exists to cater to shallower pockets and with the impending arrival of the next generation Galaxy S20 in February, the timing is unusual.
