Samsung hasn’t done a lite variant of its Galaxy S lineup since the release of the Galaxy S5 Mini years ago. That may be changing soon, as there have been series of leaks, and rumors that point to the release of a Galaxy S10 Lite.
The leaks and rumors just got more real, as the said device has now passed through the FCC not just with the model number as its identity, but with the S10 Lite moniker. One of the documents available on the FCC certification page shows a screenshot of the Settings and About phone sections.
It bears the SM-G770F model number, and also the Galaxy S10 Lite. The model seen is the dual SIM variant, though, the listing doesn’t reveal anything else.
Samsung has yet to confirm the existence or not of the S10 Lite, but the FCC approval is clear evidence that it exists and, could be launching soon. Early reports say the S10 Lite will be powered by the high-end Snapdragon 855 chipset, a triple-lens rear camera, a 6.7-inch screen, and a 4,500mAh battery.
It will reportedly come with a triple camera setup comprising of a 48MP main shooter with an aperture of f/2.0 and phase-detection autofocus, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor with an aperture of f/2.2, and a 5MP depth sensor with an aperture of f/2.2. It may come with a single 32MP selfie shooter with an aperture of f/2.2. More details about the device should surface in the coming days.
