Samsung's budget Galaxy S10 Lite will sport a flat Infinity-O display
The Galaxy S7 – Samsung's last flat-screened flagship

Although Samsung has previously released Lite versions of its flagship models, next year’s budget Galaxy S10 is expected to be the first one that actually offers a similar level of performance at a lower price. And today a new report has revealed a few extra details about the device.

Following in the footsteps of the both the Galaxy S10 and S10+, Samsung’s lower-cost version is set to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 on the inside. This processor will then be coupled with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM depending on the buyer’s preference. As standard, both configurations will ship with 64GB of internal storage. However, consumers that are willing to spend a little extra cash should also be able to purchase a 6/128GB model.

Moving over to the external side of things, the Galaxy S10 Lite is now expected to ship with a flat Infinity-O display. This will be combined with a metal frame that includes a side-mounted fingerprint reader, and a dual-camera setup on the rear that may be placed horizontally. Previously this device was expected to ship with just one rear camera.

Samsung is expected to announce its budget Galaxy S10 in late February at MWC 2019 alongside the Galaxy S10 and S10+. Sales of the device will presumably commence in March alongside the rest of the lineup. Lastly, it’s claimed that it will retail at somewhere between $650 and $750.

I'm on a black S7 right now, honestly I don't even notice, but they look huge to me on that gold phone for some reason.

The S7 had really big bezels compared to other phones of its time. Even the old S4 looks better.

The real star of the show was its variant the S7 edge. That was one of the best, if not the best looking phone of 2016.

No. I had the Note 7, then had to downgrade to the S7E. The Note 7 was the best looking phone of 2016...for 2 months.

I generally don't think about iPhones when it comes to hardware(especially design). They gave up on that front with the death and the ideas of Steve Jobs (i.e. iPhone 5S). They survive solely on software aspects of their devices. Sole exception would be their excellent in-house processors.

That phone is almost 3 years old, and that bezels still looks fine than last year's iPhone 8.

no serious person, will give so much money to buy Iphone instead of a a car.Only idiots with a low self esteem give so much money, so the they have prestige ( they think in their minds that iphone gave them prestige,when the truth is that iphone made them looked more stupid, as they are in reality. - Psychology lessons)

It sells because it's cheap not because it's good.

LG and Samsung are dinosaurs in the smartphone business and guiding the branch to degradation.

Samsung hasn't yet learned. I predict another year low sales for her smartphones.2020 Samsung you will change marketing strategy? or you'll continue the same? for 2019 your sales will drop to 30 million? hahahahahahahahahaha.....
