Back in January, Samsung announced a Lite variant for its Galaxy S10. The company was well known for making these Lite variants in the past, however, this time we’re looking for a Lite smartphone that really is good. Of course, it may have lost some of its bright due to the recently released S20 series, but Samsung will still bring it to new markets. Tomorrow, on April 17, customers in the United States will be able to purchase it.
The handset will be available in the unlocked form at both Samsung’s online store, Amazon and Best Buy. The handset will cost $650, and unfortunately, the only color available at launch will be Prism Black. Interestingly enough, Samsung is offering up to $250 off the price with qualified trade-in. Best Buy is offering $200 off, however, you’ll need to sign up for a wireless service plan. Last but not least, we have Amazon that is offering a free pair of Galaxy Buds. The first generation ones, not the newer improved Galaxy Buds+.

Galaxy S10 Lite specifications
Under the hood, the smartphone boasts Snapdragon 855 SoC. That’s exactly the same chipset found in the US Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices. The processing power is aided with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Storage side, we have 128GB and 256GB storage that can be expanded via a microSD card. These specifications are built around a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. This panel also features a center-aligned punch-hole for the 32MP selfie snapper.
Moving around to the back, we have a triple-rear camera setup living inside of a square-ish island. There’s a 48MP main camera followed by a 12MP ultra-wide and a 5MP macro module. All software features for the camera are present here thanks to the One UI 2.0 firmware. The handset draws power from a 4,500mAh battery with 45W fast-charging.
