What a morning of surprises Samsung had reserved for us today. After knowing the Samsung Galaxy J6 and the Samsung Galaxy J8 Today, the Korean brand has also presented us with what, until now, we knew as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite . Finally the mobile phone has been renamed and these are the Features of the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury .
What do we find under this curious name? The beginning of a new mobile family within the Samsung catalog ? An exclusive model for a specific region? Neither one thing nor the other. We are before a phone that has the same appearance as a Samsung Galaxy S8 , but whose specifications have been cut, which implies a reduction in its sales price.
But what else we find among the Features of the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury ?
As we say, yesterday it was revealed that the name of Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury It would be the one that would illustrate the one that until now we know as Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite . In this way we try to unlink this new mobile from the top of the range of 2017, although a large part of its characteristics are similar, as we see below.
At the same time that the new Samsung Galaxy J was introduced in India, in China we knew this model that has the same Infinity Display screen of 5.8 inches with an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9 that we have in the original S8, with FullHD resolution +. However, there is no trace of the Snapdragon 835 under the hood that drives the phone last year, but the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 CPU, a less powerful processor accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
We also found a 3,000 mAh battery and Android 8.0 Oreo as operating system, as well as an 8-megapixel front camera and a 16-megapixel rear camera with the fingerprint sensor placed next to it on the back. A direct legacy of the Galaxy S8 that changed this year on the Samsung Galaxy S9. However, despite being in the same place, there is no heart rate sensor.
It retains the IP68 water and dust resistance classification, as well as the key to access Bixby directly, since the voice assistant is also on board the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury . Other features of the mobile are 4G LTE, NFC compatible with Samsung Pay, wireless charging, iris scanning and face recognition technology.
He Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury It has a sale price of 3999 yuan, which is equal to 625 dollars or something less than 600 euros if we speak in euros. However, the smartphone has a discount for all those users who reserve the phone from today until June 1. Unfortunately this does not affect us since it seems that, for now, the mobile phone will only be put on sale in China. However, it is still possible that the device arrives in our country with the name that was known until now and soon Samsung will choose to sell in Europe Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury under the name of Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite .
At Samsung forum there are already rumors of it …
