Samsung today introduced to the Chinese market smartphone Galaxy S Light Luxury. Yes, the name is strange to say the least. If the novelty will appear in other markets, it just with a different name.
Generally Galaxy’s Light, Luxury, a kind of simplified version of the Galaxy S8. Here the same design, the same size and of other parameters. For example, the display retained the diagonal of 5.8 inches, but the resolution is reduced to 2220 x 1080 pixels.
Snapdragon SoC 835 gave way Snapdragon 660. But the memory remains 4 GB and 64 GB as one of the modifications the Galaxy S8. In General, from the point of view of performance of problems is clearly not. Most probably “hurt” the camera. The new 16-megapixel sensor and aperture of F/1.7. Guess it’s the same camera as the Galaxy A8/A8+, that is not the best. For example, the same DxOMark put Galaxy A8 just 79 points. Frontalka the novelty of 8 MP with the same aperture.
The battery remained the same (3000 mAh), as support for fast and wireless charging. The protection against water. Even bundled headphones AKG present. That is, this model may be of interest to those who are not very important to the quality of the main camera.
In China, the novelty is 625 dollars, while the Galaxy S8 asking $ 785. That is Galaxy S Light Luxury — it is a proposal that must find their buyers. However, with sales in China from Samsung it’s very bad, so in absolute terms, large amounts still will not.
