There have been rumours of an incoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite for some time and now leaked photos of the handset have surfaced, all but confirming its existence (via Sammobile's Twitter feed). 

The photos are consistent with the latest leaked renders, showing a phone with a square camera module, flat display with a central front camera cut out and S-Pen.

The handset, model number SM-N770F, will be the first cut-price Galaxy Note phone. It follows Samsung releasing a Note 10 and larger Note 10 Plus for the first time, meaning there will be fully three Note 10 devices to choose from.

Samsung might announce the phone at CES, the tech trade show taking place in Las Vegas next week. It would make sense seeing as the S10 Lite is also expected, and the S10 line is to be superseded by the S11 line in March (though it might be called the S20). 

A new year, still too many phones.
