For years some criticized Samsung for bringing too many phones to market. In fact, in 2013 one of the most famous images that were published when talking about the company was the one that talked about its device diagonals: there were from 3-inch mobiles to 10.1-inch tablets.

In recent times Samsung has simplified its catalogue more, but these days the leaks of its two imminent Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Galaxy S10 Lite have come to light, and it seems that we are back on track, because these new phones confuse with some sacrifices but not enough to consider them as those “poor brothers” who used to be the “Lite” models of any family.

A Note 10 Lite that points to the future

For starters, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, a smartphone that despite that name is somewhat larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, and with a diagonal of 6.7 inches, of course, raises that search for the maximum possible screen diagonal and “manageable” for users.

Like its older brother, this model will feature the S Pen and a design that could in fact point to the new generation of Samsung devices: there are those who say that those lines will also be those adopted by the Galaxy S11 when it was presented in the first months of 2019.

Worse, there will be hardly any sacrifices except perhaps in the processor: this model is expected to integrate the Exynos 9810, an SoC that is the one worn by the Galaxy S9 in 2018 and therefore is somewhat less powerful than the Exynos 9820 this year. Some, however, talked about a Snapdragon 855 in this model, something that contrasts with that “old” Exynos data.

In the rest of the sections, we return to a bet in which the square triple camera module is the protagonist (12 MP f / 1.7 as main, 12 MP f / 2.2 wide-angle and 12 MP f / 2.4 with 2X zoom). The battery would rise to 4,500 mAh, great news for users, while the price would be high but not exorbitant: $ 700 or Euro 629, which poses an affordable alternative to the Note 10 “premium.”

The Galaxy S10 Lite also bets on a great battery

Something similar happens with the data that have come from the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, which theoretically will come with a screen that will also be 6.7 inches – the S10 + “only” reaches 6.4 – and that will be governed by a powerful Snapdragon 855.

Where it seems that the bet can bring some sacrifice – it may end up being the opposite as well – as in the set of cameras, in which the protagonist seems to be the main sensor of 48 MP that at least in what we have been this year has not shown that offers advantages over lower resolution sensors and with more tables This sensor is accompanied by the 12 MP f / 2.2 for wide-angle and another 5 MP f / 2.4 for macro.

Curiously, the price of this device will be $ 750 (680 euros), theoretically higher than the Note 10 Lite, something that surprises if we attend to the set of cameras (apparently superior in the latter) or the presence of the S Pen that can always give a lot of play. Of course, if a somewhat older and less powerful SoC is integrated, the reduction would make sense.

Lite that are not too Lite

In both cases we are seeing how Samsung seems to be using a curious tactic: especially in the case of the S10 and its variants (S10 +, S10e), it seemed that the route was already done and that we all really waited for the future Galaxy S11.

With Note 10, things are also striking, and Samsung’s approach is clear: sacrifice in some sections to be able to offer a good part of the advantages and format of its 2019 high-end terminals, but doing so at more affordable prices.

If these prices are confirmed above $ 650 (600 euros) we would be facing Lite models that neither by price nor by specifications are as modest as we were used to seeing.

It is expected that these models will be presented during the CES that is held from January 7, 2020, and will be from then on when we can understand with more certainty a strategy that returns us to a Samsung with models that a priori seem more repetitive than we would have expected, especially at the heights of the course we are in.
