Samsung’s Note10 Lite should come to India by the end of this month starting at ₹44,000
Industry sources tell us that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite should launch in India by the end of this month and is expected to be priced around ₹44,000 for the 6GB variant and ₹48,000 for the 8GB variant.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite last week, just ahead of CES 2020 and also before the S20 gets announced. While many have debated about the fact whether launching two Lite variants just before the new flagship smartphone gets announced makes sense, it seems that Samsung is going to stick to its guns for this one.
However, is important to understand what the 'Lite' version of a smartphone is intended for. Lite version of a smartphone, which in this case are two smartphones - Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, are aimed to give users an experience that is somewhat similar to the flagship device at a much lower price.
In simpler words, these smartphones are aimed to give a premium experience at the price of a mid-budget smartphone. It is somewhat similar to what Google did with Pixel 3a.
With Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite Samsung is trying to do something similar.
However, it makes little sense for Samsung to launch these mid-range smartphones in January 2020, close to the launch of its Galaxy S11 (or Galaxy S20) series smartphones. The reason for our argument is - a dated hardware coupled with the confusing launch timeline.
That aside, industry sources tell us that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite should launch in India by the end of this month and is expected to be priced around ₹44,000 for the 6GB variant and ₹48,000 for the 8GB variant.
