It has been known for a few months now that Samsung is working on an affordable variant of the Galaxy S10 flagship. This handset, bearing model number SM-G770F, has since come to be known as the Galaxy S10 Lite.
We have come across the Galaxy S10 Lite user manual which reveals some hints about the handset's design. There's nothing out of the ordinary here, but it does reiterate a design change that we're going to see on most Samsung devices in 2020.
Galaxy S10 Lite user manual gives a few hints about the design
The user manual is in Portuguese so the text may not make much sense to you unless you know the language. The images included in the manual show that the Galaxy S10 Lite is going to have a centered punch hole for the front camera. They also show that all of the hardware buttons will be placed on the right side of the frame.
That's something we have already seen on devices like the Galaxy A51. Samsung is expected to opt for the same placement of buttons for the upcoming Galaxy S11 series as well. This may very well be the case with other Galaxy A series devices as well. The rear triple camera system is going to be positioned vertically like it is on the Galaxy Note 10/10+. Samsung will also equip the device with both NFC and MST for Samsung Pay.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to feature a Snapdragon 855 processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. There's going to be a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display and a 4,500mAh battery. The triple camera system may consist of a 48-megapixel primary sensor with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and a 5-megapixel macro lens.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S10 Lite at CES 2020 in January. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite will most likely accompany it. The Galaxy S10 Lite may cost 679 euro when it finally hits the market in the coming weeks.
