As evidenced by new FCC and TENAA listings, Samsung is operative on a stripped-down chronicle of their renouned Galaxy S8 smartphone, simply dubbed a “Galaxy S8 Lite.”
When a listings’ essence were leaked, we got a initial demeanour during a device’s design.
To that end, a S8 Lite looks probably matching to a some-more absolute predecessor, controversially-placed fingerprint sensor and all. As Phone Arena notes, however, a behind heart rate guard does seem to be blank this time around.
The S8 Lite’s technical specifications are where a differences between a dual inclination turn some-more apparent. The S8 and S8 Lite both have matching 5.8-inch screens, though a Lite’s fortitude will max out during 2220x1080p, a important hillside from a S8’s 2960x1440p fortitude cap.
From a opening perspective, a S8 Lite will expected be noticeably slower due to a comparison Snapdragon 660 chip. By comparison, a S8 housed a Snapdragon 835 processor.
However, storage space and battery life are both reasonable, sitting during 64GB and 3,000mAh respectively. The S8 Lite’s RAM ability sits during 4GB, a same volume a default S8 ships with.
As distant as a S8 Lite’s camera goes, it will reportedly residence a “lower-end” 16mpx lens.
Early cinema of a S8 Lite’s front and behind strike a web progressing this week in a aforementioned TENAA listing, though additional press renders (pictured above) flush on Wednesday. The renders exhibit a phone will come in during slightest dual colors, “Burgundy Red” and Black.
If you’re fervent to get your hands on what will expected be a cheaper chronicle of Samsung’s Galaxy S8, we competence be out of fitness for now. As of writing, a association has not suggested a recover date for a S8 Lite.
