Previously, we revealed a few details about the Galaxy S8 Lite, the device should be the exclusive of the Chinese market. According to the Geekbench test, the smartphone will be equipped with an 8-core Snapdragon 660 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and out of the box the device will run on the Android 8.0 Oreo.
However, now the device was on the TENAA website:
The smartphone received 5.8 -inch display with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. By the way, Galaxy S8 equipped with a display with a similar diagonal, but a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. Also, the S8 Lite received a 16-megapixel camera, while the S8 is equipped with a 12-megapixel camera. As a rule, Samsung uses 16-megapixel modules in the budget line Galaxy A. Not in the S8 Lite and the pulse sensor.
The S8 Lite was equipped with a 3000 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel camera, 64 GB of flash memory, and a button Bixby. The only question is, why did the company decide to release a simplified version of S8 when S9 is on the market? It would be logical to release S9 Lite. However, everything is quite simple.
S8 details probably lay in the company, and last year's flagship sales were probably not that good. The release of a cheaper model will allow Samsung to fully use the components that have been stored in warehouses. In addition, the development of a smartphone based on S8 is much cheaper than designing a new device. This explanation of the output of S8 Lite is quite logical. And what do you think about this?
