It was expected for later, or that seemed to indicate the pools that ventured the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite (next to the Note 10 Lite) for some time between the CES in Las Vegas and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. But it has finally debuted on January 3 and becomes the first Samsung phone of the year and season. Learn more about new devices at vintagefret.com
As a member of the S10 family inaugurated by the Koreans in February of last year, what better time than this to face the new model against their brothers. Against the four, we remember are the Samsung Galaxy S10e, the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Samsung Galaxy S10 + and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Let’s see where it is in front of them.
A super screen better than Dynamic but with the maximum diagonal
The new Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is that a Lite model, but that has not prevented Samsung from opting to mount a large screen on it. A perforated screen, and Infinity-O that changes the surname of AMOLED but takes the diagonal to the limit of the Galaxy S10 family of this generation.
The S10 Lite bets on the maximum diagonal but reduces the resolution and returns to the Super name
6.7 inches FullHD + for this S10 Lite that inherits the resolution of the S10e even though it offers Super AMOLED instead of Dynamic AMOLED. Thus, the phone draws diagonally with a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G that opted for the QHD + for its resolution and is above the 6.4 inches of the S10 +, the 6.1 inches of the S10 and the 5.8 inches of the S10e
Thus, of the most powerful models of the year, we only find the Galaxy Fold ahead diagonally, because the manufacturer’s folding reaches 7.3 inches. As we have said, the panel is perforated to house its only front camera in the central part and is planted at 394 pixels per inch of density. By comparison, the Galaxy S10e offered in February 438 pixels per inch. It seems that it is Lite after all.
A brain of high flights and memories to choose from
Samsung has not yet made official, at the time of writing this article, which is the brain chosen for the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite but we do know that it is an eight-core chip, which runs at 2.8GHz and is built in 7 nanometers. That means we could have two options on the table: the Exynos 9820 home-made or the Snapdragon 855 from Qualcomm. Whatever the option, we talk about the highest powers in Android this past season.
As for the memories, we run into 6GB of RAM in its most basic model and with 8GB of RAM in its top model. This makes the S10 Lite tie with the Samsung Galaxy S10e in terms of options, and that the top model does the same with the S10, S10 + and S10 5G. As we can see, Lite does not apply to power unless we lean towards the most basic model. By the way, 128GB of internal storage and the possibility of mounting a microSD of up to 1TB capacity.
Looking now at his battery, we have a new tie between the newcomer the most powerful model in the line. Both the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy S10 5G are committed to 4,500 mAh of capacity with fast charging, although for this S10 Lite there is no mention of the existence of wireless charging, neither normal nor reverse. Another point of disadvantage, although not especially sensitive.
Three rear cameras with macro and Super Steady OIS
Yes, Samsung has placed three cameras on the back of the Galaxy S10 Lite as it did with the Galaxy S10e of the month of February. The rest of the phones in the line are located in four rear cameras, with an additional fifth camera present in the Galaxy S10 5G that closes the family from above. Of course, the fifth of the S10 5G is a 3D TOF for depth readings and is not a functional camera to use.
Be that as it may, the Galaxy S10 Lite bets for 48 megapixels as the main sensor, multiplying by four the capture capacity of all its older brothers. The lens, yes, is an f / 2.0 so we have the lowest levels of light capture because his brothers mounted an f / 1.5. For the other two cameras, we have 5 megapixels for macro photography (goodbye to optical zoom or depth readings) and 12 megapixels for wide-angle. Three Cameras on the S10 Lite but with macro instead of optical zoom. Of course, with 48 megapixels and Super Steady OIS, it means what it means
More main megapixels and less in the other two cameras for a triple solvent camera but, by numbers and brightness, lower than the rest of his family. Again, the last name Lite regrets when choosing the photographic equipment. ¿ And in the front? Here we have 32 megapixels f / 2.2. Again more megapixels than all his brothers, who opt for 10 front megapixels, but less light. Opening f / 2.2 in Lite versus af / 1.9 in the rest.
The presence of what Samsung calls Super Steady OIS stands out in the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. That is super stabilized optical stabilization. We still need to know more about this technology released by the Koreans in their Lite model and that aims to be a fusion between OIS and EIS, but for now, there is no information about it.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite versus the S10 family, the features
We close this comparison of the Galaxy S10 Lite with the rest of its family, from the Galaxy S10e to the Galaxy S10 5G, with the specifications table of all face-to-face phones. Another way of checking in which position the new model is placed in front of its brothers with raw data.
