    Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite now set to launch in January?

    All evidence points at the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite closing in on their debut, but according to a fresh rumor, both smartphones might launch a bit later than initially suspected. A couple of weeks back, 91mobiles reported that the duo should be unveiled in India in December. Now, the same outlet citing ‘an industry source close to the matter' claims that the India launch for the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite won't happen this year, but instead, it will take place in mid-January 2020.

    Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite global launch may or may not follow the same timeframe

    The Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite won't remain exclusive to India. They're expected to launch in various other regions but release dates for the global market remain unknown. Even so, the global launch may very well happen around the same time, and both smartphones have just been approved by Bluetooth which means that there's one less formality to tackle before they can hit the consumer market.

    Assuming that the new time-frame is correct, this means that the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite won't make the cut for the holiday shopping season, so if you were hoping to buy a more budget-conscious S Pen device as a gift then your best bet will likely remain a discounted Galaxy Note 10. For Samsung, this would mean that the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite won't have any effect on the company's Q4 2019 market performance.

    2020 is shaping up to be a rather busy year for Samsung, as the company is expected to introduce the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy A (2020) series', as well as a clamshell Galaxy Fold 2 in the first half of the year alone. And now these two upcoming devices that seem to reside in their own categories are seemingly set to join the market early next year as well. It's going to be interesting to see how fans will perceive these two unusual entries in Samsung's portfolio, but either way, it looks like we will be spoiled for choice come 2020.
