Many reports have predicted that the last month of the year, December will not pass without a new Samsung announcing a new smartphone. Actually, the Korean company is preparing to reveal not only one but two “Lite” variants of their hottest smartphones of 2019. The Galaxy S10 Lite (SM-G770) and Galaxy Note 10 Lite (SM-N770F) have just received Bluetooth SIG certification. This is a solid hint that the smartphone release is imminent.
Bluetooth SIG’s listing confirms that Bluetooth 5.0 is will be used on these devices but also confirms the S10 Lite and Note 10 monikers.
According to reports, these two handsets will receive different branding in some select markets. The S10 Lite should become Galaxy A91, while the Note 10 Lite will play Galaxy A81’s role. This makes sense, after all, Samsung has left the “Lite” lineup long ago. The Galaxy A-series in counterpart is pretty popular in emerging markets.

The S10 Lite appeared on GeekBench a few weeks ago, powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC which is coupled with 8GB of RAM. Moreover, the handset will run Android 10 straight out the box with OneUI 2 running atop. The handset bagged all the necessary certifications from the Wi-Fi Alliance, India’s BIS agency and FCC.

The Galaxy Note 10 Lite aka A81 surfaced with Exynos 990 (Exynos 9810), 6GB of RAM and Android 10 on GeekBench. Bad enough, we have just a few details about this handset at the current moment. Rumors indicate that it will ship with a 6.5-inch or 6.7-inch display.
Samsung is still quiet about these handsets, but this shouldn’t last long. After all, both smartphones may go official before the end of this year, at least in South-Korea. For the Global markets, we wouldn’t be surprised to see them at CES 2020.
