Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite hits the FCC, is now one step closer to release

FCC filings are always a good indication that a new device is around the corner. We have had our eye on the Galaxy S10 Lite for several weeks and it appears that Samsung might be gearing up to release the device. That’s because it has landed at the FCC for the required certifications.

We first reported last month that Samsung has an affordable Galaxy S10 in the works as well. It bears model number SM-G770F. Not much is known about the design of the Galaxy S10 Lite but we do have a good idea of what the specs would be like.

Galaxy S10 Lite may not be released before the Galaxy S11

Filings for the SM-G770F are now available in the FCC’s database. There’s a good chance that we’ll get to see the device now. Samsung hasn’t dropped any hints about when it may release the handset. The company also happens to be working on a Galaxy Note 10 Lite.

Our sources tell us that the Galaxy S10 Lite will have the same specifications as the Galaxy A91. The specs include the Snapdragon 855 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. There will also be a 48-megapixel primary camera with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel depth sensor in addition to a 32-megapixel front camera. The device will have a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display and will be running Android 10 out of the box.

We just confirmed two weeks ago that the Galaxy S10 Lite will have a 4,500mAh battery which is something we also confirmed exclusively for the Galaxy A91 last month. While the Galaxy A91 will have support for 45W fast charging, it remains to be seen if that’s going to be present on the Galaxy S10 Lite.

Whenever Samsung does release the Galaxy S10 Lite, its color options will include black, white and blue. Seeing as how it’s supposed to come with Android 10, we may not get to see the device until after the Galaxy S11 is released next year. That’s because Samsung traditionally releases new flagship devices with the latest Android version first. However, Samsung has shaken up its mobile strategy quite a bit this year so who knows, maybe it could stray from tradition.

The naming of this device is silly as the s11 is just around the corner and that it will.have an s11e variant that would be direct competitor to this lite phone.

Really no point for this handset. The Samsung line is already confusing enough. Less is more!


Samsung’s names for their products are kinda lame at this point… I don’t even know which one is the “flagship” one and which one is the “Lite” versione anymore since this “lite” version seems to be a better phone than my S10+ (other than the screen res. at least…).
I’m totally OK with new products being released but with the ‘A’ series being so high end phones and now this new S10 Lite, I think they should probably go for a more noticeable gap between the Galaxy and the A series, even with the products inside those families.


Relax. S10 lite won’t be better than S10+ or even S10e. S10 lite will just be an A series phone with a flagship chipset. Cameras, display and build quality will be on par with A series.
