Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite today, ending months of speculation surrounding these devices. It's going to be displaying these devices at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas next week.
While it hasn't confirmed the markets where these devices are going to be sold, the company has confirmed what the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite are going to cost. As expected, they're going to be much more attainable than full-fledged flagship devices.
Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite prices
Prices for the Galaxy S10 Lite will start from 649 euro (~$720). That's a full 100 euro cheaper than the Galaxy S10e, which is the cheapest model of the Galaxy S10 family. That's a compelling price for a handset that has the same processor as the Galaxy S10+.

Samsung wanted to make the S Pen more attainable so it kept the costs in check for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Prices for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite start at 599 euro (~670). When the company launched two Galaxy Note 10 models last year, it said that the smaller Galaxy Note 10 was meant for those who wanted to join the Note lineup for the first time while the Galaxy Note 10+ was meant for loyalists.
Either way, customers had to spend a minimum of 949 euro to get the latest Samsung smartphone with the S Pen. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite will go a long way in helping people switch to the Note series without spending a great deal of money.

The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite will be available in markets across Europe in January and February 2020, respectively. Samsung is yet to confirm the other markets where these handsets will be released.
