Samsung will try to help customers with a lower budget with two new budget versions of its flagship telephones.
On Friday, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Note 10 Lite, which promise to become more affordable versions of their namesakes with similar high-end features.
Samsung still has to give the new devices a formal price, although it says that they will be sold at an ‘accessible price’.
The current version of the S10 sells for $ 899, while the Note 10 is sold for $ 949.
The Note 10 (pictured above) is one of Samsung’s flagship devices and comes with the company’s S Pen, a stylus that can operate the phone in various ways. The Galaxy S10 is one of the most popular Samsung models and sells for around $ 900, making it one of the most expensive Samsung phones
According to the Korean tech giant, both budget devices have a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen and centered hole punch selfie cameras.
The biggest difference between the two devices is in their arrays with three cameras. While the S10 Lite comes with a macro lens, ultra-large and 48-megapixel wide-angle, the Note 10 Lite has a telephoto, wide-angle and ultra-large.
All three lenses of the Note 10 Lite are 12 megapixels.
The Note 10 Lite even retains the S Pen of the premium version, a kind of smart stylus that allows users to write in their device and control various aspects of their phone remotely – this includes taking photos, videos and more.
The S Pen also adds more options to the package, allowing for some gesture control thanks to the six-axis motion sensor that includes an accelerometer and gyro sensor.
This means that users can control certain functions by swinging their pen in the air, including zooming in and out to take photos and control the volume of YouTube videos without touching the screen.
S Pen lasts for hours on a single charge, the company says, and charges by sliding back into the phone.
Samsung has not set a specific date for when the Lite devices will be released, but they can compete with an upcoming crop of budget-oriented Apple phones.
The iPhone SE 2 is expected to be released this year for a starting price of $ 399, making it several hundred dollars cheaper than the latest iPhone 11 models.
