New Samsung phone with SM-N770F model number that is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has appeared on Geekbench with its key specs.
[Update: 11 Dec, 2019]
Galaxy Note 10 Lite has been certified in the Wi-Fi Alliance website and the listing confirms the presence of Android 10 OS. Phones usually bag this certification just about 4-6 weeks before the official release. This suggests that the rumored released date of mid-January could turn out to be true.

The Geekbench listing has appeared soon after it was spotted on the database of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. a few hours ago. While recent reports have revealed its existence, there is no official confirmation on it yet from the South Korean company.
Galaxy Note 10 Lite Geekbench Listing
The Geekbench 5 benchmarking platform has revealed that Samsung SM-N770F smartphone has scored 667 in the single-core test and 2030 in the multi-core test. The device is fueled by the Exynos 9810 chipset which is the same SoC that powered last year’s Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series of smartphones. The Galaxy Note 10 Lite’s Geekbench listing further states it runs on Android 10 OS. Also, its SoC is coupled with 6 GB of RAM.
Info from FCC Certification
While the SM-N770F is a clear give away that it is a Note series phone, the FCC listing also suggests that it will belong to the same Note series. The reason behind it is that FCC has certified the S-Pen stylus for the SM-N770F smartphone. The listing reveals that the stylus will carry support for Bluetooth connectivity. Its dimensions are 5.80 x 4.35 x 105.18mm which is similar to that of the stylus that ships with the Galaxy Note 10.
The rumor mill is silent on the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. We also know that the device could be coming in two color options namely Red and Black. Probably, the device will go official before the Galaxy S11 series of smartphones goes official in February 2020. It is speculated that the Galaxy Note 10 Lite will be rebranded as Galaxy A81 in some markets.
