Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite earlier this week at CES, with both devices set to go on sale in the coming weeks. The S10 Lite is an interesting device as it offers most of the features as the Galaxy S10 series at a more affordable price point.

In spite of the Lite moniker, the phone has robust hardware in the form of the Snapdragon 855 chipset, 128GB of internal storage, 6 or 8GB of RAM, and a massive 4500mAh battery with fast charging.

The S10 Lite also features a 48MP primary camera, joined by a 12MP wide-angle lens and a dedicated 5MP macro shooter. Samsung is clearly going after the likes of OnePlus with the S10 Lite, and the phone is likely to slot in at the same sub-$600 category in the coming weeks.

  • What are the differences between the S10 and the lite?
  • For one, the flat screen. I want a flat screen phone. Why doesn't Samsung release this in the US, too?
