After announcing its Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite at CES 2020, Samsung has finally brought its Note 10 Lite to India. Priced from ₹38,999 onwards, the Note 10 will be available in Aura Glow, Aura Black and Aura Red options and in 6GB/8GB RAM variants, both paired with 128GB of internal storage. This Lite version of the Note 10 revisits the basics and gets you a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card storage expansion (up to 1TB) and a massive 4500mAh battery, all of which are surprisingly not available even on the premium Galaxy Note 10+. There’s a humbler triple-camera setup with 12MP (wide) + 12MP (ultra-wide) + 12MP (tele)  on the rear and a 32MP front facing camera for selfies. Powered by an equally capable 2.7Ghz processor, it really makes one wonder, why did Samsung call this spec-heavy Note 10 the Lite?
