Samsung, in the Nepalese market, hit a home run with the Galaxy M-series and A-series phones in 2019. The company performed just as well in the ultra-premium smartphone market with the Galaxy S10 series and the Galaxy Note 10 series phones. However, there really wasn’t a good phone in the Rs. 60,000 price range.
That is exactly where the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite fits in. Samsung Nepal has confirmed that the company is bringing the Note 10 Lite to Nepal. And more importantly, they are going to price the phone under Rs. 60,000! We are expecting the price of Galaxy Note 10 Lite in Nepal to be Rs. 59,900 or so when it actually launches.
Also, since the company is pricing the Note 10 Lite so aggressively, it really cannot sell the phone in the offline market (since the offline retailers and distributors take a chunk of profit from Samsung). Instead, the phone will be sold exclusively online- through Daraz.
Here is a quick run-down of the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite:
Galaxy Note 10 Lite Specification
- 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Display

Galaxy Note 10 Lite Nepali variant Overview
At the price of around Rs. 60,000, you really cannot go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. The phone goes directly against the phones like the OnePlus 7T and is clearly a better package overall.
While priced significantly lower than the Galaxy Note 10 and the Note 10+, the Note 10 Lite doesn’t miss out on a lot of features. And the features that you miss out on- they really aren’t something that a lot of people will care about.
For example, the Note 10 Lite comes with a Full HD+ display instead of a 1440p panel. But the fact is, the Note 10+ comes with Full HD+ resolution set as default. So, most people are using their Note 10+ in the Full HD+ resolution anyways.
The processor too while not the latest, is going to be more than enough for most users. The Exynos 9810 SoC is the same chip found on the Note 9 and the Note 9+. So, you really shouldn’t worry about the Note 10 Lite being underpowered.
What’s more? The Note 10 Lite coming to Nepal comes with 8GB of RAM onboard. That should be plentiful for everyone looking for a new phone.
The primary camera sensor also comes straight from the Note 10. While the camera lacks the dual aperture, it’s still the same tried and tested 12MP camera sensor that produces excellent photos and videos. The 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera also takes photos that are just as good as the ones found on the flagship Samsung phones.
Not everything is a downgrade, though. There are plenty of features that even the twice as much expensive Galaxy Note 10+ lacks.
To boot, the Note 10 Lite comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The flagship Note 10 and the Note 10+ miss out on that.
There’s also a larger 32MP front-camera on the Note 10 Lite. The Note 10 gets just a 10MP camera. Sure, megapixels aren’t everything but the added detail on the selfies captured by the Note 10 Lite should translate to better photos, overall.
And there’s the large 4500mAh battery. It’s larger than the one found in the Galaxy Note 10+ and significantly larger than the one found on the Galaxy Note 10. What’s more? A 25W fast charger is bundled in the box.
All in all, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite is an excellent package. The expected price of Galaxy Note 10 Lite is Rs. 59,990. If launched at this price point, the phone will definitely be a bargain and a good buy!
