Samsung is all set to bring the Galaxy S10 Lite smartphone to the Indian market. The most important thing is the handset will ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset itself in India as well. Last week, Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite smartphones with high-end hardware. And it has already confirmed the S10 Lite is reaching the Indian market very soon and it will be exclusive to Flipkart. After facing overheating issues with the Snapdragon 810 processor a few years ago, Samsung started launching its flagship smartphones with Exynos processors. After nearly four years, Samsung is bringing a flagship smartphone to India with Snapdragon's high-end chipset. This move will attract a lot of users out there. Other specs of the Galaxy S10 Lite include triple rear cameras, 4500mAh battery, punch-hole display and up to 8GB of RAM.
Samsung Flagship Smartphone With Snapdragon SoC Launching in India
As mentioned above, Samsung did not launch a flagship smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset in India for more than four years now. The Galaxy S10 Lite will change that as the Flipkart teaser page confirms the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset. Notably, the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite were launched with the same Snapdragon 855 SoC. Samsung did not confirm whether the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is coming to India or not.
Samsung started launching flagship phones in the country with Exynos processors ever since the heating issues of Snapdragon 810 chipset. Generally, Exynos processors always outperformed Snapdragon chipsets in the performance aspect, but they failed miserably in the battery life department.
Samsung flagship smartphone buyers have been asking for Snapdragon chipset devices, and finally, Samsung is bringing one to the Indian market.
