The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite, the two flagship spin-offs that Samsung is expected to launch in the coming weeks, have made their way through the Bluetooth certification process. Rumor has it that both handsets will be unveiled sometime later this month in India, and the Bluetooth certification makes that rumor more credible.
The Galaxy S10 Lite’s support pages are already up on Samsung’s official website and it has also made more public appearances than the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in the last couple of weeks, so it’s possible the Galaxy S10 Lite will go official before the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Both phones will share a similar design, with a centered punch-hole display like the Galaxy Note 10 and a new arrangement for the rear cameras that seems destined to become a standard on many upcoming Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S11.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite is no doubt the more interesting device of the two, as it will bring the S Pen experience down to a more affordable price bracket while the S10 Lite is expected to just be a near-flagship mid-range phone like the Galaxy A90 5G. The S Pen on the Note 10 Lite will have Bluetooth functionality, as confirmed by the stylus’ FCC certification, and it should also support air gestures like the Galaxy Note 10 S Pen.
