Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury Launched with SD660 and 4GB RAM

South Korean manufacturer Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury today in China. The handset previously appeared in TENAA and was rumored to be called “S8/S9 Lite”. The smartphone is the same size as the Galaxy S8, and even the rear fingerprint scanner placement matches last year’s flagship smartphone. The body has IP68-rated waterproof protection.

As for the specs, the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury features a 5.8-inch curved AMOLED Infinity display with a resolution of FHD+ (1,080 x 2,220 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 18:5:9. Under the hood, it houses a Snapdragon 660 chipset with Adreno 512 GPU coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.

In the optics department, the smartphone sports a 16MP rear sensor with f/1.7 aperture while offering an 8MP selfie camera with f/1.7 in the front. It can record 4K videos at 30 fps but lacks OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), resulting in shaky videos. It will run on Android 8.0 Oreo and be backed by a 3,000 mAh battery with support for fast charging. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4 + 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS and GLONASS, USB 3.1 and NFC. The smartphone retains the 3.5 mm headphone jack and comes bundled with an AKG in-ear headset. Additionally, it comes with a Bixby dedicated button.

The Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury is available in Burgundy Red, but a Black Night version will be added later. It comes pre-loaded with apps that can replace Google apps like Golder Map. As for the pricing, the smartphone comes with a price tag of CNY 4,000 (Rs 42,000 approx), which will go against recent flagships like the OnePlus 6 and even its GalaxyS9 flagships. The company has not yet confirmed whether the phone will launch globally.
