Samsung unveils Galaxy S Light Luxury in China, a lite version of Galaxy S8
After some round of rumors, the new Samsung Galaxy S Light Luxury has finally been launched in China. The launch was spotted by SamMobile, and now we have photos, which shows the smartphone sporting the same gorgeous design as the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Like the 2017 flagship it’s fashioned after, the Galaxy S Light Luxury has a handsome-looking finish, a physical Bixby button at the side, and an awkwardly positioned fingerprint scanner, to the right of its 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. The phone, similarly, has IP68 water and dust resistance and a rather measly 3,000mAh battery. It also has the same 5.8-inch “infinity display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution.
The internals, though shrunk, isn’t exactly downsized. There’s a Snapdragon 660 chip, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It also supports facial recognition, an iris scanner, facial recognition, and Samsung Pay. The S Light Luxury also runs on Android Oreo.
