If you have a long cherished desire to own the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, with its price tag holding you back, then today we have some news for you. On 3rd January 2020, Korean electronics and heavy industries giant Samsung announced they will be releasing the Smartphone Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Targeting a more mass market audience the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is going to be the affordable alternative to the Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
The company has revealed the basic features and specifications of Galaxy Note 10 Lite. In this article, we are going to present a comparative review of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus and Galaxy Note Lite. Stay with us!
Samsung has designed their latest Galaxy Note 10 Lite model as a cheaper alternative to their elite gadget Note 10 Plus. Not to mention the ‘Lite’ version will have lesser features, than Note 10 Plus model. However, the ‘Lite’ is coming with some advanced technologies which is available in the latest competitor smartphones. Let’s see what features Galaxy Note Lite is going to offer.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite comes with a slightly bigger (163.7 x 76.1 x 8.7 mm) and slightly heavier (199g) body than Note 10 Plus. Though both of these Galaxy smartphone models share the same stylish looks, the ‘Lite’ version comes with a slightly smaller display (6.7-inch). Both models are blessed with stylus, the signature ‘S’ pen of Galaxy Note series. The resolution of Galaxy Note 10 ‘Lite’ is lower (1080 x 2400 pixels at 20:9 ratio) than it’s ‘Plus’ counterpart.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite actually beats its elite ancestor ‘Note 10 Plus’ by virtue of its latest operating system ‘Android 10 Go’ edition. However, Lite model’s old version chipset (Exynos 9810) falls behind the high-end processor (Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9825) owned by the ‘Plus’ model. By virtue of octa-core processor, Galaxy Note 10 Lite smartphone is expected to deliver smooth and fast operation, like its Plus version.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite features 8GB RAM, 128GB ROM built-in memory at maximum. However, this capacity might disappoint you, as the Plus model is offering greater (at least 12GB, 256GB ROM) memory space.
For both versions, the memory can be extended up to 1 TB inserting micro SD card. It won’t be overwhelming to say that with extended memory, the Galaxy Note 10 series smartphones can almost serve like a desktop PC or laptop in storing files, songs, media, movies, games, etc.
Like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, the Lite version is equipped with some high-tech sensors including compass, Fingerprint identifier, gyro, Samsung DeX, accelerometer, proximity, and ANT+. These smart features would make your life smoother and easier.
Note 10 Lite is coming with latest Wifi 802.11 and Bluetooth 5.0 technology, resembling the Plus version. But Lite’s USB 2.0 is less efficient than the Plus version’s USB 3.1 mechanism. Still we can say, considering price Galaxy Note 10 Lite is going to offer a fair deal.

So far we know that the camera features of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Note 10 Plus models are almost the same. Both versions have 12MP wide camera and 12MP telephoto camera. However, the Lite version’s ultra-wide camera (12 MP) is slightly less powerful than Plus version’s 16MP camera.
If you love taking selfies here and there, then Galaxy Note 10 Lite is going to win your heart with its 32MP front camera, which is a great advancement from Plus versions 10MP selfie camera. However, selfie camera’s video resolution (1080p@30fps) is less powerful than the Note 10 Plus smartphone’s front camera (2160p@30fps).
Galaxy Note 10 Lite comes with a slightly improved 4500mAh battery life than the Note 10 Plus version’s non-removable battery (4300 mAh). However, it is not an impressive feature, as many budget smartphones are offering 5000mAh battery life nowadays for further lower price-range than Galaxy series. Both Galaxy smartphone versions (Note 10 lite and Note 10 Plus) feature Fast Battery Charging.
Smartphone Galaxy Note 10 Lite will probably cost around $700.
So far we have highlighted upon the key features of the latest Samsung Smartphone Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Though experts are considering this Galaxy Note Lite version as the low-price alternative of the Samsung Smartphone Galaxy Note Plus model, the key is what you get for the price you pay. It is yet to hit the market, but indications are the Lite will get you more bang for your buck once it does.
Flying taxis and a robot that can fetch toilet paper when you're stranded on the loo were among the technologies showcased this week at the annual CES gadget show in Las Vegas.
The annual technology conference is the place for big brands and startups alike to unveil their products and services for the coming year, though larger companies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft typically hold their own announcement events. Streaming services and surveillance technologies are among the hot topics. The show formally opens Tuesday following two days of media previews.
Here are some highlights:
UBER'S AERIAL RIDE
Uber and Hyundai are teaming up to build a fleet of flying taxis.
Uber, the ride-hailing giant, said its four-passenger "Uber Air Taxi" will initially be piloted, but over time will become autonomous. Uber says it wants to conduct flight demonstrations in 2020 and make such vehicles commercially available in 2023.
The goal is to help riders breeze over traffic in shared air taxis between suburbs and cities and eventually within cities. Uber plans to launch the aircraft in Dallas, Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia. The air taxis, which look like a cross between a helicopter and a small airplane, will be all-electric.
The air taxis are designed to take off vertically and cruise at speeds up to 180 miles per hour (290 kilometers per hour). They're designed to fly up to 60 miles (97 kilometers) at a time.
While Uber has been working on the air taxi concept for years, Hyundai brings to the project a company with experience manufacturing cars on a global scale.
The companies said Hyundai will produce and deploy the vehicles while Uber provides airspace support services and connections to ground transportation. Uber will not own the air taxis, but the aircraft will be permitted to operate as part of Uber's transportation network.
ROBOT FOR THE LOO
Charmin wants to solve a familiar feeling: being stranded on the toilet with an empty toilet paper roll.
Its solution: a two-wheeled robot that can fetch a fresh roll. The robot, around 6-inches tall, has the face of a bear — like the cartoon ones in Charmin's commercials — and toilet paper sitting on top.
But don't expect it to roll to your bathroom anytime soon. Procter & Gamble, the company that owns Charmin, said the robot won't be for sale and was just an example of what's possible.
"Car companies have concept cars, but P&G has concept bathrooms," said Marc Pritchard, who oversees Procter & Gamble's brands.
The company didn't have a working robot available at a press conference Sunday, though executives say one will be demonstrated when the show floor opens Tuesday.
SENSING WATER LEAKS
New sensors promise to stop water leaks before they ruin your home.
Monitors from Alarm.com and Flo Technologies connect to homes' water lines and track usage. If the systems sense more water than usual is flowing through the pipes, they send an alert through their apps — after all, it could just be a long shower. But if something really seems off kilter, the monitors will automatically shut off water.
Flo used CES to launch its newest sensor, a raindrop-shaped device that looks like a smoke alarm and can detect any water or moisture when attached to toilets, washers or other leak-prone areas. Each detector costs $50.
Another option, Phyn, makes a $299 device that hooks up to the pipes under a sink and measures changes in water pressure.
TRACKING THE ELDERLY
What are your grandparents up to? Startups are pitching a way to keep an eye on the elderly from afar.
The new sensors can tell if a loved one has moved around and eaten — for instance, by detecting when the fridge is opened.
The efforts come as the U.S. government expects adults over 65 to outnumber children for the first time by 2034.
"We want to enable loved ones to live on their own," said Ryan Herd, founder of Caregiver Smart Solutions.
Caregiver's sensors tracks the elderly through motion detection, though the product can also tell if someone has showered by measuring humidity. Another company, CarePredict, has a wrist-worn device that can detect falls and alert caregivers. It also tracks how much the person has moved around and what rooms they're spending most of their time in.
Tracking isn't cheap. CarePredict's device, for instance, costs $450, plus a $70 monthly fee.
Neither company uses cameras, so you'll need something else if you want to peer into your grandparents' homes. Just keep in mind that if you can check video on an app, so might a skilled hacker.
GADGETS FOR YOUR EAR
Nearly 67 million wireless earbuds are expected to be sold this year, according to projections by organizers of this week's CES gadget show in Las Vegas. That's up 35% from 2019, making it one of the fastest-growing categories in consumer tech.
According to the organizers, the Consumer Technology Association, much of the growth will come from Apple's AirPods and Samsung's Galaxy Buds, both of which play music and take calls without any wires. But others are vying for your ear canal, too. Amazon started selling its own buds late last year, and Microsoft plans to have one in 2020.
Also popular: smartwatches, fitness trackers and other devices that track and monitor your health. The CTA expects 64 million health devices to be sold this year, the first time the group has counted the category.
Smartphones and TVs will see slower growth. Both are expected to rise just 2%.
Overall, revenue in the U.S. consumer tech industry is expected to grow 4% to $422 billion, the CTA said. But the group warned that its numbers could change significantly if the trade war with China escalates or if tariffs are expanded. Much of the world's electronics are put together in China, and the CTA has said that steeper tariffs could hurt the industry by making gadgets more expensive for consumers.
