Samsung has been on a roll recently. The company, despite losing out to FlexPai in the quest to being the first company with a foldable smartphone, did launch its own Infinity Flex Display. Soon after, there were talks of an Infinity-O display as well. While the Infinity Flex will be reserved for a new generation, the Infinity-O display could come with the Galaxy S10. And what’s more is that it could be accompanied with the Galaxy S10+ and the S10 Lite.
Samsung Galaxy S10
Samsung is due to launch the Samsung Galaxy S10 series later on next year. While the company has been launching the standard and a plus variant on launch, they are also known to launch “lite” variants of their devices alongside as well. This time though, things could be a little different. Reports suggest that the company will launch the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite alongside the S10 and the S10+.

While not much is known about the higher end devices, the rumor mill suggests the hardware would mostly be the same as the S10 and the S10+. Under the hood, you’d get the newer Snapdragon 8150 SoC. The device is said to be available in 3 storage variants: 4+64GB, 6+64GB, and 6+128GB. The S10 Lite will be ditching the in-display fingerprint technology by having a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The highlight of the Galaxy S10 Lite is said to be the new Infinity-O display. Ever since the Galaxy S7, Samsung’s flagships have had curved displays. However, the S10 Lite could come with the flat Infinity-O display. On the rear side, there is said to be a dual-camera setup.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite price and availability
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is expected to be priced between $650 to $750. As for the launch, we could see the device debut at MWC 2019 in February.
