I was about to happy seeing this news, hoping that will be a s8 with small 5.2" screen... but.....
Well i think i just dreaming since most of OEM just launch phone with 5,7" and even more than 6"..
I dont like big phone, just hopefully there are good small sized high end phone that can replace my s8...
Its not a big phone tho, but i love smaller phone (s8 screen ratio with 5.3 inch is perfect)
Anonymous, 10 May 2018You are misinformed. Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with Snapdragon 636. Not 660.Whoops
A friend of mine got one and swore it was a 660.
skyfly, 10 May 2018I don't get what is the point at announcing S8 Lite in 2018 when S8 was released in 2017 and i... morePretty easy Logic if you give it some thought really.
They obviously believe that there is a market for it, and if there is a market for it.... then Samsung capitalise.
samsung s8 mobile super very good
AnonD-758122, 09 May 2018Who will buy this over Nokia 7+ which is much better than this deviceAs being a nokia & simbian & meeggo fan, who had supported Nokia until it was sold to MS, the comeback of Nokia with android is a failure. Not because of Android choice. But because the hardware and the system optimization is far behind Samsung and other rivals. Nokia used to be a technology leader now it is a weak follower. I wish Nokia will have a great comeback with innovative solutions.
I don't get what is the point at announcing S8 Lite in 2018 when S8 was released in 2017 and in S9 in 2018. Where is the logic here?
AnonD-587010, 10 May 2018Another interesting phone only for China, WTF samsung is it my fault I can't buy this phone be... moreIt seems Samsung has excess S8's rear glass panel so I think this product will not be on sale for long.
I think samsung going mad why not sele s8 with discount. Or mybe they have agreement about suport phone security for 2 year and if do not change name the support can not do. Ckckckc. Poor samsung make hard they self.
Another interesting phone only for China, WTF samsung is it my fault I can't buy this phone because I'm not Chinese? :(
If they price it decent it might be a good choice. But yeah, knowing Samsung it probably won't be so good, but there's still some hope...
Hopefully it'll shrink to 5.4in or so. ^^;
They will price this at 35000+ in India. Samsung always overprice the c**p out of their devices.
Who will buy this over Nokia 7+ which is much better than this device
I'm thinking of another major snapdragon 660 phone, the Redmi note 5 Pro, which costs 15k in India, I'd be surprised if the s8 lite costed less than 30k when it eventually launches in India, I can already hear the fanboys going, it'll have a much better camera and build quality and display, and brand value. But frankly I don't think many would pay that much just for that.
I'm actually not a Xiaomi fanboy, just that I know value for money when I see it.
fail oversize, poor camera.
Anonymous, 09 May 2018Smaller phone with bigger battery and 64/4 with SD660 and 350€ and i will buy......It's a Samsung so price will be between 449 and 499 for this phone
It seems they still have ample of stock of S8 Spare Parts remaining with them, so they are liquidating that in this way...
Anonymous, 09 May 2018Actually its just 18:9Dude! Its 18:5:9 display ratio. Look at Galaxy A8 2018. They have the same resolution (2280x1080) and Super AMOLED display. The only thing I like this S8 lite is that it uses Snapdragon 660! Very efficient and balanced powered SoC. This is gonna be a hit. (Fingerprint sensor is also S8... So, yeah I gonna accept that)
