Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has officially made its way to the Indian market. The watered-down version of the Galaxy Note 10 features Exynos 9810 chipset, S-Pen and even comes with a 4500mAh battery. Prices of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in India start at Rs 38,999, but with an introductory upgrade offer, the phone can be picked up for as low as Rs 33,999. To recall, Exynos 9810 is the same chipset we saw on the Galaxy Note 9 back in 2018.

In the coming days, Samsung will also launch the Galaxy S10 Lite, which features last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset.
