After being globally unveiled earlier this month, Samsung has today announced a new smartphone, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, in India. Essentially, the phone is a slightly run-down version of Note 10 launched last year at a relatively low price, with the key USP being the intelligent S-Pen. That said, let’s jump in and look at the device in detail.
Design and Display
In terms of design, the Note 10 Lite features a glossy plastic back design with a rectangular camera module for the rear cameras. Towards the front, it flaunts a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O display with a hole-punch cutout to house the front-facing camera. The Note 10 Lite comes in three color options: Aura Black, Aura Glow, and Aura Red.
At its core, the Note 10 Lite is powered by the Exynos 9810 octa-core processor with Mali-G72 GPU, coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable up to 1TB with microSD card. It includes a 4500mAh battery with 25W super-fast wired charging and runs on OneUI 2.0 based on Android 10 out of the box. Among other things, the device comes with the signature S-Pen with Bluetooth Low-Energy support found on Note series devices and has an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication, along with USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5, USB 3.1, and NFC. What’s interesting with the S-Pen is its ability to instantly convert handwritten notes to digital text, making it easier to share.
For optics, the Note 10 Lite sports a triple-camera setup on the rear. The setup includes a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture 123-degree field-of-view (FoV), and a 12MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. Towards the front, the device has a 32MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture for selfies.
