Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite with SD 855 SoC and 48MP triple-rear camera launched in India for 39,999 INR
Fresh on the heels of launching the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, Samsung has also launched the Galaxy S10 Lite today in the Indian market. The two devices were first unveiled at CES 2020 earlier this month. Although the Galaxy S10 Lite is a pared-down version of the Galaxy S10, it comes with powerful Snapdragon 855 SoC and pro-grade cameras.
In line with the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the Galaxy S10 Lite is also targeted at the affordable premium segment. The Galaxy S10 Lite is priced at INR39,999 with an 8GB RAM+128GB storage configuration.
The Galaxy S10 Lite comes in three paint jobs, such as Prism White, Prism Black, and Prism Blue. It will be available to purchase from February 4 via Flipkart, Samsung.com, and leading offline stores.
Heading into the specs, the Galaxy S10 Lite offers a 6.7-inch edge-to-edge Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with full HD+ resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, HDR support, a centered punch-hole cutout, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
On the inside, the Galaxy S10 Lite is powered by the 7nm Snapdragon 855 octa-core SoC, which also underpins the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus. The chipset here is mated to Adreno 640 GPU, 8GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage i.e. expandable up to 1TB via microSD card.

On the software side of things, the Galaxy S10 Lite boots One UI 2.0 running over Android 10 out-of-the-box, whereas for fuel, it tucks a 4,500mAh battery inside with 25W fast charging support. The battery draws charge via USB Type-C port. Unlike the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the S10 Lite missed out on the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, however.
In terms of camera, the Galaxy S10 Lite mounts a 32MP f/2.2 selfie camera inside the punch-hole cutout, which can record videos at 1080p at 30fps. On the rear, there are three cameras and an LED flash arranged inside a rectangular module.
The triple camera setup includes a 48MP f/2.2 primary sensor with OIS, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP macro lens. The rear camera can capture videos at max 2160p at 30fps.
The other notable aspects include Samsung DeX desktop experience support, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0. There is no mention if the device supports NFC or not.
With an affordable price tag and brand cachet alongside, the Galaxy S10 Lite is positioned to take on the OnePlus 7T and the others of its ilk. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite with its S Pen is another excellent choice for buyers in the same ballpark.
