It seems that Samsung is not done with the Galaxy S20 series yet, as a new smartphone in the series called Galaxy S20 Lite has now been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark platform. However, you should not let this ‘Lite’ moniker confuse you, as the device would be a high-end segment smartphone, like the Galaxy S10 Lite.

As per the results seen on the GeekBench platform. In the single-core performance test, it achieves a score of 737 points. Then, in the multi-core performance tests, it manages to obtain a result of 2619 points. This is in line with the scores obtained by other phones that are powered by the same Qualcomm hardware.
This would be very interesting, as the Galaxy S20 Lite could be more powerful than the current Galaxy S20-series with the Exynos 990 SoC. Qualcomm’s high-end processor has been proven repeatedly to be more efficient and powerful than Samsung’s Exynos chipsets.
In addition to the information reviewed, nothing else is known about this Samsung flagship phone yet. Considering what we saw in the previous generation, it could feature a plastic construction. However, since the device could compete with other competitive flagship phones, launching in late 2020, its build quality may be improved. According to the leaks, the Galaxy S20 Lite or S20 Fan Edition would be presented in October.
