The flagship device is made of highest quality glass and aluminum materials. Actually, its rear panel is composed of 3D glass, making the device even more appealing and shiny.

With having 5.8-inch Super-AMOLED display panel, the new Samsung Galaxy S Lite Luxury featuring 1080x2220 pixels resolution and 18:5:9 large screen. And most importantly, the phone is IP68 water/dust resistant. These features look similar to previous Samsung Galaxy S8.

When you come to the back of the device, you will see the flash, camera, and fingerprint scanner all next to other in a horizontal way. And again, the fingerprint scanner is not convenient to use, as we have seen in Galaxy S8 device.

The mobile phone is IP68 water/dust proof, and hence you will get maximum protection against any kind of dust, dirt, rain, or even splash.


When it comes to performance, the Snapdragon 660 chipset inside the Galaxy S Lite Luxury will deliver almost similar performance as the Galaxy S8 offers, but it is still behind on GPU power.

The reason behind putting the Snapdragon 660 processor chip is to save the overall cost of the device. The Galaxy device includes 4GB of well enough RAM and offers 64GB of onboard memory that is upgradable up to 400GB via a separate microSD.


Talking about its camera department, the flagship device comes with a single camera setup on the rear, where you will achieve 16MP primary lens well supported by LED flash.
