The Similarities in Specifications

The display sizes of both the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite are the same. Its 6.7-inch Full HD+ Infinity ‘O’ type. The screen resolution is identical at 2400×1080 pixels.

In the display department, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite has a Super AMOLED Plus display while the one on the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is described as just Super AMOLED.

Another significant difference is the inclusion of the S Pen in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite in line with the premium Note series smartphones from the Korean company. The Galaxy S10 Lite does not include a stylus pen.
