Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite: Samsung has released the lite version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series. Although its not such a high performer as the Galaxy S10 but it sure gives you some real experience of what the other Galaxy S10 series can do.
If there is anything that we think is lacking from this device in 2020 is the fact that it came without a 5G network. But then again, not every country have 5G enabled. I mean the likes of Nigeria, India and other countries are yet to have a fully functioning 5G network.
Taking aside the 5G network, the new Galaxy S10 lite comes with premium design with a good chipset, nice battery capacity and fast charge. What is even more impressive is the fact that it has the UFS2.1 enabled which should help improve data processing.
