If you have always admired the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series but could not buy one because of the price, you may be happy to know that the company has announced the availability of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in Kenya. Just as the name suggests, this is a lighter version of the flagship Galaxy Note 10 that has been available in Kenya for some time.
The Galaxy Note 10 Lite has just been announced in Kenya but is not available in retail stores, for that, we will have to wait till next week. The company says the phone will be available in retail stores across the country for a fraction of the price you can get the Note 10 for.
With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite, I thought it is a good idea to run through some of the things you may need to know about this phone.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite in Kenya: Price and availability
In Kenya, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite will be available in retail stores as from Monday, February 10, 2020. You should be able to get the phone from Samsung branded and pretty much any smartphone retailer across the country. You should also be able to get the phone online through Jumia at some point.
As for the price, the phone will be available for Ksh 57,999, quite a huge price cut compared to the current retail price of the flagship Note 10. For this price, you will be getting a smartphone with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space, I will highlight the other key specifications of this phone later in this post.
S-Pen at A Cheaper Price
One of the key selling points of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is the S-Pen. The Note series is known for its Stylus pen and now Samsung has brought that to the lower price point. This means that a bigger audience will be able to get the iconic Galaxy Note experience without spending a fortune.
