Samsung Galaxy A10s Passes Through FCC, Reveals Dual Rear Camera & Fingerprint Reader


A new Galaxy A series phone has passed through FCC’s (Federal Communications Commission) clearance process earlier today in the US. Going by the phone’s model number (SM-A107F/DS), we assume that the phone will be released in the market as the Samsung Galaxy A10s. It will succeed Samsung‘s most entry-level Galaxy A series smartphone, the Galaxy A10.

The yet-to-be-released smartphone’s model number features code ‘DS’, it will be released in a dual-SIM version as well in markets like India and China. The phone has passed FCC certification process, it might be released soon in at least some markets.

Samsung Galaxy A10s FCC Certification Reveals New Information

The Galaxy A10s’ FCC certification documents reveal the phone’s rear design schematics, which point us towards the inclusion of a rear-facing capacitive fingerprint reader and a dual-camera on the rear, both of which were missing from the Galaxy A10. The Galaxy A10 relied on face unlock, password, PIN, and pattern for user authentication. It was also one of the few phones released by Samsung to feature a single camera on the rear. Both these shortcomings appear to have been fixed by the South Korean smartphone brand with the Galaxy A10s.

There also appears to be a 3900mAh battery (3.8V DC) to power the Galaxy A10s. Connectivity features include single-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz), Bluetooth, and 4G LTE. In terms of dimensions, the Galaxy A10s is 157mm tall and 75.8mm wide. That’s all we know about the phone as of now. However, we expect the phone to run Android 9 Pie-based Samsung One UI software, use an Exynos processor, and have a 3.5mm headphone jack. We also expect the phone to have a microSD card slot, an octa-core processor, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and an LCD screen.

We will update you with more details about Samsung’s upcoming entry-level Galaxy A series phone as and when we find new information.
