Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10+ Spotted on Benchmark Site, Tipped to Sport ‘Artistic Live Focus’ Mode

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10+ Spotted on Benchmark Site, Tipped to Sport 'Artistic Live Focus' Mode

Samsung is set to unveil its Samsung Galaxy S10 series next year, and leaks have already started flowing in abundance. The Galaxy S10 series is said to come in three variants, with the most premium variant being called the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite – speculated to be the cheapest of the lot – and Samsung Galaxy S10+ have now been allegedly spotted on a benchmark site, tipping key specification details. The company seems to have also patented a new ‘Artistic Live Focus’ camera mode slated to come in the upcoming phones as well.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite with model number SM-G975 is listed with screen size 360×760 pixel, which translates to 1080×2280 pixel resolution at 19:9 aspect ratio. The Samsung Galaxy S10+ listed with model number SM-G975 is listed with screen size 412×869 pixels, which translates to 1440×3040 pixels QHD+ resolution. Both these phones were spotted on the HTML5 benchmark site, and were reported first by Mobielkopen site.

Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite variant is seen to achieve better scores than the Samsung Galaxy S10+, and that is presumably because these might just be test devices, and not the final versions.

Separately, Galaxy Club has discovered a new trademark filed by Samsung at the European Union Intellectual Property Office for a feature called ‘Artistic Live Focus’. We presume this is Samsung’s upgraded take on its already existing Live Focus feature which is nothing but another word for the Bokeh effect seen on smartphone photos these days, with the additional ability to adjust the background blur afterwards. The features are expected on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, Galaxy Club notes. Samsung is reported to add as many as four rear cameras (recent reports say three) at the back of the Samsung Galaxy S10+, and computational features like these will only add more value to the upcoming smartphones.

Samsung is speculated to unveil the Galaxy S10 series at an Galaxy Unpacked event in February – just before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The new family will have the regular Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ alongside the most inferior Galaxy S10 Lite and the highly premium and ultra-ambitious 10th-anniversary model. Recently, all the three variants’ dimensions were also leaked, and the most premium variant is tipped to come with dual selfie sensors.
