Samsung Galaxy S11 rumours have been heating up but a new piece of information suggests some predictions, like the addition of a Galaxy S11 Lite, have been a bit off.
While it doesn't look like we were right about getting a Galaxy S11 Lite, we might be getting a new S10 product out of it. According to a new inclusion on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) database, a Galaxy S10 Lite is on the way with the model number SM-G770F, as spotted by SamMobile.

Ishan Agarwal, a known leaker, has said the Lite will come with a Snapdragon 855 processor and an impressive camera boasting a 48MP main camera, 5MP depth lens and a 12MP wide angle lens on the rear. It's selfie camera will reportedly be 32MP.
Can confirm that #Samsung Galaxy S10 lite (SM-G770F) will have Snapdragon 855 processor and the camera specifications are as follows:
48MP (Main) + 5MP (Depth) +12MP (Wide angle) & 32MP (Selfie)
Meanwhile the internal code for S11+ (5G) (SM-G986U) is Y2.

Given the S10 series already has a pretty full lineup with the S10, S10+, S10e and S10 5G, we assumed the Lite leaks would replace the S11e when the new series is eventually released. This new information seems to suggest a S11 version of it isn't on the immediate horizon.
We've reached to Samsung to confirm the Lite model is solely for the Galaxy S10 series, and not the S11. [Via SamMobile]
