As you might expect, the idea here is to bring some of the Galaxy S and Note flagship features to those on a tighter budget. We thought the S10e was for that job, but Samsung has gone ahead with the Lite regardless.

Samsung hasn’t announced prices or release dates but we expect them to arrive within the next month or so and they will be at an “accessible price point”.

The S10 Lite appears to be focused on photography with trio of rear cameras including ultra-wide angle and macro.The phone also features Super Steady OIS for high levels of stabilisation when shooting.

Meanwhile, the Note 10 Lite is the first Lite edition of the stylus wielding smartphone. The S Pen is more than just a writing implement though, as it can control things like the camera, presentations and more.

Both devices have a 6.7in edge-to-edge Infinity-O displays with a punch hole camera at the top. They also share the advantage of a large 4500mAh battery, which eclipses even the Note 10+ and S10+.

You get Android 10 pre-loaded and Samsung’s ecosystem of apps and services, including Bixby, Samsung Pay, Knox and Health.

The Galaxy S10 Lite is available in Prism White, Prism Black and Prism Blue while Galaxy Note10 Lite is available in Aura Glow, Aura Black and Aura Red.
