Galaxy S10 Lite: new leaks points to TiltOIS, Snapdragon 855 and pricing info
WinFuture's Roland Quandt now claims to have learned all about the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite prior to its persistently mystery-shrouded launch date. This leaker asserts that the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC, which suggests that the OEM is taking a leaf out of Vivo's book in the sale of semi-premium phones.
This new S10 Lite rumor gets even better, however: Quandt notes that there will be only 1 variant of the phone with this Qualcomm processor. Therefore, Samsung will not stick certain regions (most often Europe) with an Exynos alternative that has often been found to be slower in certain tasks; unfortunately, the same may yet not be said for the upcoming Galaxy S11 flagship series. This silicon may drive 8GB of RAM, which is paired with 128GB of fixed storage, in the new S10 variant.
Quandt also now believes that this device willl have a triple rear camera set-up, so as to differentiate it from the S10e. It will consist of 48+12+5MP sensors, the largest of which will also deliver the TiltOIS (or tOIS) feature formerly exclusive to the Galaxy A90. The remaining 2 lenses will cover wide-angle and macro functions respectively.
On that note, OnLeaks has also recently weighed in on this subject again. This tipster has stated that this phone and the Galaxy A91 are not the same phone, as previously thought. Then again, the former is now touted to be the "yet unreleased SM-A905". However, earlier leaks emanating directly from the FCC indicates that the S10 Lite's model number is in fact SM-G770F.
However, Quandt and OnLeaks now agree that this phone will have a 6.7-inch FHD+ display, which will feature a single punch-hole camera of 32MP in resolution. Finally, this leak has 1 other piece of new potential information: the S10 Lite is now slated to cost €679.99 (~US$753.75) in some European countries. Therefore, it may be an extremely high-value mid-tier phone indeed.
