Samsung announced the release of a simplified version of last year’s flagship Galaxy S8. The novelty is called Galaxy S Lite Luxury Edition, a different screen resolution and processor are simpler. From the pros: a more affordable price tag, a new module for the main camera and a body in a new color. Samsung Galaxy S Lite Luxury Edition inherited the appearance of the Galaxy S8, including the poor location of the fingerprint scanner on the side of the main camera, which often leads to contamination of the lens protective glass. Another nuance is the lack of an optical sensor for measuring heart rate. The Bixby voice assistant call key remains in place. The resolution of the 5.8-inch Infinity Display curved on the sides of the screen, made using Super AMOLED technology, is 2220×1080 pixels (Full HD + vs QHD + in Galaxy S8 / S8 +), the aspect ratio is 18.5: 9. Unlike the original ex-flagships, the new product runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor, and not on the top-end Snapdragon 835 / Exynos 8895, together with 4 GB of RAM and 64 built-in flash memory. The existing hybrid slot allows you to install a microSD card or a second SIM card. Main camera resolution increased from 12 megapixels to 16 megapixels, optical stabilization system, f / 1.7 aperture, autofocus and support for 4K video shooting are present. An 8MP selfie camera with f / 1.7 aperture and autofocus supports unlocking “face” and iris.
