Over the last few weeks, we’ve heard a number of rumours about Samsung launching a lite variant of the Galaxy Note 10. While the company hasn’t officially teased the device yet, there have been enough rumours and leaks to suggest that the device is indeed real and in the making.
Although no launch date is known for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the device is expected to be launched in the coming weeks and that too with similar specs that the original Galaxy Note 10 phones come sporting — albeit at a much lower price point due to the company cutting costs in other departments.
Now ahead of the launch of the rumoured device, we appear to have gotten a glimpse of what the Note 10 Lite could look like. The new information comes courtesy of leaked live images that show a flat, non-curved screen panel at the front of the device.
While representing a major design change on the Note 10 and 10+ — both of which flaunt curved displays– the new panel appears to have been used to keep the phone’s cost in check. The live images also reveal a square camera bump that looks very much like the one we’ve been seeing in the leaks of the Galaxy S20 line-up.
The bump appears to a triple camera set-up sat next to an LED flash in the corner. Apart from this, the live images also show that Samsung has cut corners in other areas of design too. Unlike the glass and metal body of the premium Note 10 series phones, the Note Lite’s body looks like its built using plastic.
Coming to the internals, previous leaks have suggested the Note 10 Lite could feature a 6.7-inch HDR AMOLED display with a punch-hole for the device’s selfie camera.
Under the hood, the phone could come with an Exynos 9810 SoC with a clock speed of 2.7GHz. This is expected to be paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 512GB via a microSD card. For the operating system, the phone has been tipped to come running Android 10 based One UI 2.0.
As for the cameras, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is expected to bring with itself a triple rear camera setup with a primary 12-megapixel main camera sat alongside a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter with an f/2.2 lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom support.
