While we wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to become reality in the near future, another really interesting device might come at around the same time, or possibly even earlier – the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Lite.
The smartphone, with an insanely long product name, has indeed been just discovered on TENAA, the Chinese phone certification website.
From the listing, we see that the handset comes with the model number SM-G8855 and a dual camera setup at the rear with a 24MP and 16MP primary and secondary lenses combo. The cameras have been placed vertically on the top left corner, which in our opinion is a lousy copy of iPhone X’s style, when Samsung could have simply used the better looking S9 Plus design.
Moving to the front, we find an 8MP selfie snapper, which is a downgrade from the 24MP shooter we find on the S9 Plus.
From TENAA’s certificate we also learn that the Galaxy S9 Plus Lite will be equipped with an octa-core processor clocked at either 2.2Ghz or 1.8Ghz (possibly an Exynos 9810), paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Other features include a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen with 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution, a 3700mAh battery (larger than the Galaxy S9 Plus) and a headphone jack – hurrah!
Some experts suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Lite might get released in China alone, but it’s too early to either confirm or deny that.
