A day after the media reported that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note10 Lite on January 25 in India, a report has delved out the information regarding the pricing of the latter. Citing retail sources, the report says that the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite will cost Rs 35,990 for the 6GB RAM model, and the 8GB RAM variant would carry a price tag of Rs 39,990. The Samsung Galaxy Note10 is currently priced at Rs 69,999 for the base 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant.
There is no information from the South Korean company yet so we have to take this information with a pinch of salt. However, if the information is correct, the phone will compete with the likes OnePlus 7T (Review), the rumoured Apple iPhone SE 2 and the Google Pixel 4a. Currently, 8GB RAM and 128GB variant of the OnePlus 7T is priced at Rs 37,999 on Amazon. Reports say that Google Pixel 4a may be priced around Rs 40,000 and iPhone may cost approx Rs 28,000 (converted from the rumoured $399 price tag).
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite is a toned-down version of the Galaxy Note 10+ that was launched in August last year. It sports a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O Display with the punch hole in the top centre of the screen. Under the hood, the phone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 128GB storage.
On the back, the phone is equipped with a triple camera setup. The three cameras, and an LED flash are enclosed in a square module.
