Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury Specs and Price

Samsung just recently came out with the much talked about Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury smartphone which is the Lite version of last year’s Samsung Galaxy S8. The smartphone which features more or less the same design has last year’s flagship up to the awkward fingerprint sensor. Surprisingly, the smartphone retains some of the high specs like dust and water resistance alongside the physical Bixby button. A marked difference between both smartphones is the relatively small size it comes with.

Design and Display

Based on looks, there is really not much downgrade between this two besides the reduced size factor mentioned earlier. The smartphone is made from glass from front to back with an otherwise aluminium frame holding it together. As in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and other noteworthy mid-range smartphones this year, the smartphone has minimal bezels while the fingerprint sensor is just beside the camera. That said, it does have a premium build.anf is available in burgundy red and a black night colour.

Just like the Infinity display of the S8 flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury had a side to side display which makes it very appealing to the eye. Also, there is the reduced resolution to a now Full HD resolution which is arranged on a 5.8-inch screen. It is quite nice still being an AMOLED panel which is know to be very colourful and with 2200 X 1080 pixels resolution.

Battery and Camera

Battery capacity is probably not the new mid-range smartphone’s forte but it does well for itself with an average size.  Depending on your usage, you could still squeeze out a day from the 3,000mAh battery which also comes with fast charge for quick boost. However, the wireless charging seen in the flagship model has been ditched.

You certainly don’t expect the camera here to be as good as that of the flagship. However, it is good enough to capture vibrant pictures although there are bound to be more noise in dim lit situation. In that regard, there is a 16MP rear camera with dual LED flash while the front is home to an 8MP sensor.

Hardware and Software

On the inside, the smartphone is surely in good hands with an ideal mid-range SoC to keep the smartphone running smoothly. Employing the hands of an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, the smartphone runs smoothly and hitch free. That aside, the smartphone ships with Adreno 512 GPU making sure your gaming and other graphics issues goes right.

In addition, there is still 4GB RAM inside and the smartphone still ships with 64GB internal storage which is expandable to 400GB. You also have Bixby, Samsung’s AI assistant at your beck and call with Android 8.0 OS running from get go.
