Galaxy S10 Lite will be sold through online retail major Flipkart and launch deals are likely to bring prices closer to ₹40,000, the sources told IANS on Wednesday.
Galaxy S10 Lite will give a renewed push to Samsung's strategy in the premium segment (priced above ₹30,000), where its flagship smartphones Galaxy S and Note series have traditionally done very well.
Galaxy S10 Lite will house 48MP main camera, 12MP 'Ultra Wide' and 5MP 'Macro' sensors alongside the new 'Super Steady OIS (optical image stabilisation)'. The device will feature a 32MP Selfie camera.
The device will come with 6.7-inch, edge-to-edge Infinity-O display, large 4,500mAh battery with super-fast charging and Samsung's ecosystem of apps and services, including Samsung Pay.
Samsung announced new Galaxy S10 Lite along with another flagship Galaxy Note10 Lite smartphones earlier this month.
"The Galaxy S and Galaxy Note devices have met consumer wants and demands around the world. The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note10 Lite will introduce distinct key premium features that make up a Galaxy S and Galaxy Note experience," said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT; Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
