The Galaxy S8 Lite won’t be just a rumor by the end of the day, as Samsung plans to unveil the mid-range smartphone later today. The South Korean company has already sent invitations to the launch event, which also reveals a new piece of information that we didn’t know about.
Apparently, the Galaxy S8 Lite will be launched on the market with a different name that wants to convince customers they are going to buy a luxury handset. According to the invites sent by Samsung, the upcoming smartphone will be introduced as Galaxy S Light Luxury, not Galaxy S8 Lite.
As far as the specs go, nothing has changed and the Galaxy S Light Luxury remains a mid-range device. It has the same bezel-less design as the Galaxy S8 and features a large 5.8-inch FHD+ Infinity Display.
On the inside, the Galaxy S Light Luxury packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB expandable storage. Sadly, this one doesn’t come with a dual-camera on the back, but owners will be able to enjoy the benefits of having a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. There’s also a secondary 8-megapixel camera in the front, which should take high-quality selfies.
The smartphone will be officially unveiled in China later today, and it’s yet unclear whether or not Samsung will bring it to other markets in the coming months.
