When the Galaxy Note 10 Lite was released earlier this year, it took everyone by storm as Samsung tried to bridge the big gaps between its highly priced Galaxy Note 10 Series and then the mid-rangers. While there have been other Samsung Galaxy mid-range smartphones such as the Galaxy A50 and above, the need for another Galaxy Note 10 in the mid-range spectrum might be questioned but the Korean giant tech company probably has it’s reasons.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite is definitely massive with a large 6.7-Inches display (1080 x 2400 pixels), the display has no curves something which Samsung seems to be ditching. The same can be said about the new Galaxy S20 which was leaked recently.
The design includes a full AMOLED display with a tiny hole-punch camera cut-out at the top center of the display just as the normal Note 10. At the back is the new rectangular camera module which housed the triple camera setup of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
The camera sensors includes a primary 12 MP, f/1.7, 27mm (wide), 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, which has OIS then the second sensor which is another 12 MP, f/2.4, 52mm (telephoto), 1/3.6″, 1.0µm, PDAF, OIS, 2x optical zoom and lastly another 12 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide) sensor with an awesome image processing. This is definitely a camera phone.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite can also record 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60fps (gyro-EIS), 720p@960fps videos but there is no information about 4K video recording. And yes, 4K isn’t ye mainstream even though there are even 8K displays already.
And as for the front facing camera, it’s a modest 32MP, f/2.2, 25mm (wide), 1/2.8″, 0.8µm massive sensor which has HDR feature as well as can record 1080p@30fps videos which is very standard and great.
Elsewhere, the new Galaxy Note 10 Lite doesn’t have any support for 5G which is a little bit disappointing considering the fact that we’re already in the year 2020 when 5G is expected to be the norm but it seems the mid-ranger might not be getting this network at all.
The battery is a massive 4500 mAh Li-Po battery which should get you through the day. It also has fast charging capability. It also feature USB-C connector which is the norm since 2019 which is amazing for fast file transfer.
Other interesting features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite includes the ONE UI 2.0 which is built on top of the Android 10 OS. As for the colors of the new smartphone, it comes in three colors which includes Aura Glow, Aura Black, Aura Red.
The availability isn’t official and we expect the device to be released later on by the first Quarters of the year 2020. And the price tag is expected to be around the $600 price mark just as other mid-rangers with high quality features like this one. The device’s design is sleek and it’s worth the attention.
Meanwhile, we’ll add more to the story when we finally have the chance of purchasing one for review in house.
