Design-wise, this is practically a smaller version of the Galaxy S8/S8+. The fingerprint scanner is still in the same awkward position as its bigger siblings and it has a single rear camera. Though we’ll admit the red version looks gorgeous.
The Galaxy S8 Lite will launch with a 5.8” FHD+ Infinity Display, a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It will also have a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP wide-angle selfie camera, 3000mAh battery, and Android Oreo on board.
There is no info on the price yet.
