Samsung’s Galaxy Note line looks like it is finally getting a cheaper model. Thanks to leaks from WinFuture, we’ve got a decent look at what is supposedly the Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
The renders show a central camera cut out and a flat display compared to the high-end Note’s curved one. On the back there’s nothing except the Samsung logo and a squarish camera arrangement reminiscent of those on the iPhone 11 Pro and Google Pixel 4.
There is, of course, the S-Pen too. WinFuture suggests it’ll include Bluetooth 5.1, which could make it more functional than the current S-Pen. But the report’s suggestion the phone will have the Snapdragon 855 is unlikely, in our opinion.
The regular Note 10 and Note 10 Plus have a vertical array, and the change here, if accurate, could be a design bridge between this generation of phones and the Galaxy S11 in February. The S11 is rumoured to pack four or five cameras into a large rectangular module.
The images here are of the Aura Glow version, much like the flashy expensive Note 10s, with a black and red model also apparently in the works. If accurate, it’ll be the first low-end Note phone ever, and the first time Samsung has made a ‘lite’ version of its flagships.
While companies like Huawei have turned out lite models for several years, Samsung doesn’t tend to do lite versions of its Note or S series. But with this leak and the long-standing rumour of an S10 Lite, it could be around the corner – though an S10 Lite would make less sense given the S11 proper is due for release in February.
