There have been leaks and rumors in the past regarding an affordable version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 in the works. The device was rumored to be called the Galaxy S10 Lite, which would be a toned-down version of the Galaxy S10 flagship that was released earlier this year.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Spotted on Geekbench
A recent Geekbench benchmark report featuring a Samsung device with the model number SM-G770F was found by Galaxyclub. The unnamed device is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. The benchmark doesn’t contain the name of the mysterious device, but the reported ones are similar to the specifications leaked earlier.
Geekbench is a mobile phone benchmarking software, which is used to analyze and compare the performance of smartphones. Geekbench stores the reports of every benchmark test performed on a particular device. The availability of such a report suggests that a Geekbench benchmark was run on a Galaxy S10 Lite prototype.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Features and Specifications
The benchmark report reveals a device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which was used in devices like the Pixel 4 XL and the OnePlus 7 Pro. The benchmark report reveals a single-core score of 742 and a multi-core score of 2604 that is similar to other devices featuring the Snapdragon 855 processor.
The device variant that was benchmarked, featured 8 GB RAM. There may be another variant with a higher or lower RAM size. The tested device was running Android 10 and since it is a Samsung device, the device will have the One UI 2.0 skin on top of Android 10.
The specifications of the tested smartphone are similar to those on the Galaxy A90 5G and the Galaxy A91 smartphones. There is a possibility that the Galaxy S10 Lite will be a re-branded version of one of these smartphones. The Galaxy A91 was recently revealed online with the specifications comprising a Snapdragon 855 SoC, 8 GB RAM, as well as 128 GB of internal storage. The device also has a microSD card slot to expand the device storage.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Release Date
There is limited information regarding the release date of the Galaxy S10 Lite and there is no official announcement from Samsung yet. However, the device is expected to launch after the release of the Galaxy S11 since Samsung releases its flagship devices first before releasing mid-range devices every year.
