If we were intrigued by rumors of Samsung creation a cheaper chronicle of a Galaxy S8, afterwards good news: it’s a genuine phone. Bad news? It’s substantially going to be sealed divided in China as a Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury.
Simple fixing aside, a new phone carries a lot of hallmarks from a strange device, and should it ever make it to a wider universe could be flattering popular.
The 18.5:9 prolonged shade is back, entrance in during 5.8-inches, and it’s also IP68 dust-resistant. That’s flattering identical to a Galaxy S8, and it even retains a vitriolic Bixby pivotal – arrangement Samsung isn’t vouchsafing adult on perplexing to make that a ‘thing’.
The iris scanner and bad chain of a fingerprint scanner remain, and we doubt they’ve been upgraded in any way… so that could be an emanate should we somehow conduct to buy this phone, as conjunction worked quite good in a exam with a Galaxy S8.
Same though different
There are some pivotal differences though: a battery is 3000mAh (and wirelessly chargeable), it’s entrance with Android 8 right out of a box – and there’s a lot reduction energy here too.
The device is powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 660 chipset, clearly to assistance save a cost. It’ll also be reduction of a empty on a battery (as will a display, that will be capped during Full HD resolution).
There’s an 8MP camera on a front, and a 16MP limp on a back, with f/1.7 orifice for good low light photography. The Galaxy S Light Luxury looks flattering neat built adult opposite a strange Galaxy S8, and will substantially be around 20-30% cheaper too, while entrance in black and burgundy colors and make-up AKG headphones in a box.
And one final curiosity: in China, a name of a phone is a S Light Luxury… though a URL says S Lite, so clearly there’s been some discuss over a name. We doubt it would be called a S Light Luxury in other countries anyway, so that should spirit during a genuine name.
- Or we could ascent and go for a much-better Galaxy S9
