[Update: New Renders] Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite renders show familiar camera design and S Pen
With the Galaxy S11 series on the horizon, there are a couple of other interesting Samsung devices showing up. We recently got our first look a the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite (or Galaxy A91) after it was confirmed by an FCC listing. There was also a rumor about a Galaxy Note 10 Lite back in October, and now we’re getting our first look at that device as well.
Like the Galaxy S10 Lite/A91, this device is also going by two names now. @OnLeaks has shared renders of a device that could be called the Galaxy A81 or Galaxy Note 10 Lite. There are only two renders of the device and not a lot of details are visible. We can make out a few key features, however.
First and foremost, the camera arrangement looks very similar to what we’ve seen from the Galaxy S11 series and the Galaxy S10 Lite. According to rumors from Ishan Agarwal, the square housing will contain 3 cameras and a flash, though there’s no word on MP sizes. Speaking of cameras, it seems to have a single centered hole-punch camera on the front.
The second important feature we can see is the S Pen. We can see a 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker grill, and the S Pen docked in the bottom edge. The S Pen is obviously a big part of what makes a Note a Note, and having it in the “Lite” model is great. It will be useful for drawing on the 6.5-6.7-inch mostly flat display. There may also be a fingerprint sensor underneath the display.
There aren’t many other specifications to go on right now. Some rough rumors claim it will be powered by 2018’s Exynos 9810, which was in the Galaxy Note 9 series. That would be a definite step down from the flagship Galaxy Note 10 and reason for the “Lite” name tag. It may also launch with 6GB of RAM and Android 10.
Update: New Renders
We previously only saw the dark, mysterious renders of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite above, but today we’re getting a much clearer look. We can see that this is basically like the Note 10 with a flat display and a centered hole punch. The bezels are very slim on all sides of the display as well, but it clearly does not have curved display edges. The display is still OLED as you would expect.
Once again, on the back we see the square camera housing with 3 cameras and a flash. The main camera may be a 48MP sensor, but we don’t know much about the cameras yet. One camera could also be a macro/zoom lens. The Snapdragon 855 is expected to be the processor. The S Pen is said to be upgraded with Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity as well. The colors are black, silver, and red, and the price could be around 670 euros in Germany.
