Much about the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite is already known, but we still don’t know when Samsung is going to unveil them. While some earlier reports projected their launch in December, more recent coverage is betting on January next year. Joining the latter, a new report in The Korean Herald says these devices might make an appearance at CES 2020.
Before we proceed any further, it’s worth stating that the report doesn’t make it clear if this information is based on some inside source or merely a calculated guess. Either way, a CES 2020 launch for these smartphones sounds plausible for a multitude of reasons.
First and foremost, these are near-flagship devices, so a major event like CES is a good place to unveil them (unless Samsung has plans for a dedicated event). Second, delaying the release of these devices beyond January next year will put them too close to the launch of the Galaxy S11 and Fold 2 in February. Last but not least, press renders of these models have already leaked online, which is always a reliable indicator of an imminent launch. If the company is going to announce these devices in the next couple of weeks, then CES 2020 will be the most likely venue.
To recap, Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite are supposed to be cheaper variants of Samsung’s 2019 flagship models. Despite the Lite branding, some of the specs of these two devices are better than the regular versions.
