Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite was recently spotted on Geekbench powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM, clocked at 1.78GHz, and a running Android 9 Pie.
Samsung Galaxy S10 is currently hogging all the limelight and is expected to be launched on February 20. A trio of 4G phones includes the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Lite, and the Galaxy S10+. Samsung is also expected to unveil a 5G model along with regular variants of its latest flagship phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite may have a simpler camera setup and a scaled-down flat screen and not curved from the edges in contrast to its more premium siblings, but it will be using the exact same chipset as its siblings.
The Geekbench database already contains the results from the SM-G970U- the US version of the S10 Lite. It is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset (code-named “Nile”) and contains 6 GB of RAM. That matches the 6GB we saw on the Galaxy S10+ (Exynos) when it went through AnTuTu, but obviously, there could be several memory levels.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to come with a dual rear camera setup and an Infinity-O display with one punch-hole on the front for the front camera. Speaking of cameras, a feature called Bright Night will debut on the Galaxy S10 series and might pave the way for better low-light camera performance.
The Galaxy S10 Lite will also bring support for wireless charging and will be available in Yellow, White, Black, Green, and Blue color options. Another leak claimed that the Galaxy S10 Lite will come equipped with a 3,100mAh battery while the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus will pack a larger 3,500mAh and 4,000mAh battery respectively.
The benchmark score seems pretty low, under what the S845 currently boasts. Realizing that it’s a pre-launch device with non-final software, it is not wise to draw conclusions at this time.
