For a device that’s rumored to be launching in December, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite (SM-N770) has made surprisingly few unofficial appearances ever since we exclusively revealed such a device is in the works. The Galaxy S10 Lite, the other flagship spin-off Samsung is making, is also rumored for a December launch and has been considerably less shy.
We have seen an online benchmark, confirmation on its battery size, and even an FCC certification for the Galaxy S10 Lite while the Note 10 Lite continues to play hide and seek, but things may be changing soon. On November 26, the FCC certified the Galaxy Note 10 Lite’s S Pen, confirming at least one feature for the phone.
Bluetooth-enabled S Pen to accompany the Galaxy Note 10 Lite
The FCC documents reveal that the Galaxy Note 10 Lite will have a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen like the one seen on the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Note 10. That shouldn’t be surprising, and we would be more interested to learn whether it will also have a gyroscope built-in to enable air gestures (called Air actions) like the Galaxy Note 10 S Pen. Given the Lite moniker, Samsung could bundle a Bluetooth-only S Pen with the device, although that is just speculation at this time.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite’s spec sheet is rather unknown at this time, although we can confirm it will have 128GB of internal storage. The handset hasn’t popped up on any online benchmarks yet, and it’s possible it might just be a Galaxy S10 Lite, which is supposed to be a rebranded Galaxy A91 for some markets, with an S Pen. It could also be a Galaxy A81 with an S Pen, as suggested by the discovery of a mysterious new device that could be a mashup of the Galaxy A and Galaxy Note series.
Unfortunately, no concrete information is available right now, but if the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is slated for a December launch, we should see more details about the device show up soon.
