It’s been long rumored that Samsung is working on a watered down version of the Galaxy S8. The smartphone, rumored to be called Galaxy S8 Lite, is now said to be launching today in China.

The information comes courtesy of a media invite sent by Samsung for a launch event in Beijing today, reports. What’s interesting though is that teaser hints at a rather interesting name for the upcoming smartphone. Instead of being called Galaxy S8 Lite, this new Samsung device could be called the Galaxy S Light Luxury. Quite a mouthful if we are being honest.

In the past few weeks, we have come across leaked renders giving us an idea on what the Galaxy S8 Lite aka Galaxy S Light Luxury will look like. In terms of design, the smartphone does look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S8. The front is dominated by an Infinity Display, and there is a fingerprint sensor at the back, and a physical Bixby button. Interestingly, the heart-rate monitor is missing in the renders we have seen so far.

For photography, there will be a 16-megapixel primary sensor at the back, and an 8-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera up front. Backing the device will be a 3,000mAh battery, and on the software front, it is likely to run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box. Buyers will be able to choose from black and red color options.
