Design and Display
On the body, there is nothing new or spectacular about the phone. We are already used to the rectangle camera, the punch hole, and the on-screen fingerprint scanner. Just that the phone offers a full-screen display.
The body, on the other hand, comes with a premium innovative design. It’s made of glass and aluminum. The smooth panel house the camera with an LED flash and also the branded logo.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite measures 162.5 x 75.6 x 8.1 mm in dimensions and weight 186 grams which is a little bit lighter than the Note 10 Lite.
On the front, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite packs a bigger screen size of a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display. As you can see, the display panel has a bigger size than the Galaxy S10+’s 6.4-inch QHD+ screen and is equally embedded with a fingerprint Sensor.
Another noticeable design difference between this model and the Galaxy S10 is that even though both models pack a punch-hole design, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite’s is centrally placed and not right-aligned like it is on the other Galaxy S10 device.
The screen has display protection and it carries support for Always-on display and HDR which will bring the best user experience when viewing.

The new Super Steady OIS is paired with the camera’s Super Steady mode for higher stability in action-focused photos and videos as well.
