The leaks are getting intensive by days. Samsung is still almost three weeks away from its February 20th “Unpacked” event and we have seen a lot then often. Yesterday, a video leak gave us a first glance at an actual live Samsung Galaxy S10E or Lite. Today, German publisher WinFuture posted renders for the premium quality ‘Lite’ version of the Galaxy S10 series.
The images show the front, rear, and sides of the device. Samsung Galaxy S10E will reportedly get a flat screen with no notch but a punch hole camera aka Infinity-O display. Have a look at the device and you’ll spot tiny bezels around the edges that makes the phone resembles much like Apple iPhone XR.
So, are we seeing a rival to Apple iPhone XR flagship smartphone? As of now, we don’t know much about the Lite version although it will feature a 5.8” flat display with a dual-camera setup at the back and also teased in a video leaked by Samsung Vietnam a few days ago.
CNET quotes a price tag of €749 which is roughly $860 for the Lite version whereas the standard Galaxy S10 would fetch at least $999 which is something Apple did practice last year by launching two high-end phones reckoning a price tag of more than $1,000 while offering a cheaper variant i.e. iPhone XR.
Leakster Ishan Agarwal quoted a price tag of €749 for the 6GB+128GB mode. On the contrary, standard Galaxy S10 will have two variants i.e. 6GB+128GB at €899 and 8GB+512GB at €1,149. Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus will cost €999 for its 6GB+128GB model while the higher 8GB+512GB could fetch €1,249. Finally, the largest memory configuration for Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is 12GB+1TB storage at a whopping €1,499. Note that all these prices are for the Netherlands and the European market and the price could potentially change for other markets.
