It is expected that Samsung in February of this year should present its new flagship line of smartphones Samsung Galaxy S10, the younger model of which will be the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite.
It will be inferior to the other versions in almost all characteristics, but it will use the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 single-chip system as in other models.
However, the first test results of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite in the popular Geekbench platforme show that the smartphone is equipped with the Snapdragon 855, 6 GB of RAM and the operating system is Android 9.0 Pie.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite shows very weak results in Geekbench. In single-core mode, it scored 1986 points and when using all the cores at the same time the result was 6266 points.

Perhaps the reason lies in the fact that this is a prototype, but it still can not explain why the Snapdragon 855 shows half the expected performance. For example, Sony Xperia XZ4 with SoC Snapdragon 855 scored 12,800 points in Geekbench. Yes, the smartphone has 8 GB of RAM, but the gap is still enormous.
It is worth to mention that the S10 series will most likely adopt the new graphene battery technology. This technology allows the device to achieve fast and better charging compared to the traditional lithium battery. However, because of the earlier Galaxy Note 7 battery explosion, Samsung is extremely cautious about the application of this battery.
