Samsung's Galaxy S9 lite release tipped for May 21, but you may never get it
Samsung has been fond of doing that lately, throwing things at the Great Wall to see what sticks, thanks to its abysmal sales performance there, compared to the local brands. The phone was initially thought to be launched as Galaxy S8 lite, but Samsung has apparently revamped the launch naming to match the current flagship, and eventually attract more interest.
As a reminder, the S9 lite is tipped to sport Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 660, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, 16 MP camera, 3000 mAh battery, and a FHD+ display. Looks and sounds as a fine midranger, yet you might never be able to buy it unless you live in China, or import from there.
