Galaxy A10s

Samsung is planning to introduce the Galaxy A10s to the Indian market in a week or two. While the device’s exact launch date is still unknown, 91Mobile claims to have got information regarding its pricing from a retail source. As per the tip, the upcoming phone will be priced at Rs 7,990. Considering that the A10 also sells for the same price, the new Galaxy A10s most likely supersede the Galaxy A10. The phone will feature a plastic body and frame. Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy A10s’ screen will feature a waterdrop notch, which Samsung refers to as Infinity-V display. On the other hand, there will be a few changes such as a rear fingerprint sensor, which was missing on the Galaxy 10. The report also sheds light on some of the key specifications. Combining the new information with the previous leaks, here’s what we know about the internal hardware of the Galaxy A10s:

Samsung Galaxy A10s Specifications And Features

The A10s will feature a 6.2-inch HD+ display. It will be the second device in the A-series to feature an LCD. All other phones including the Galaxy A20, Galaxy A30, and Galaxy A50 offer AMOLED displays. Since it is a budget device, Samsung has settled for only 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage. For storage expansion, the phone will offer a dedicated microSD card slot. It will be independent of the dual SIM feature.

There’s no certainty regarding the processor details though. As per GSMArena, the Galaxy A20s will be powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset running at 2 GHz. But the leak from 91Mobiles suggests that the processor’s clock speed will peak at 1.6 GHz. So, there’s a good chance that Samsung will retain the Exynos 7884 that powers the Galaxy A10.

The camera department gets a significant improvement. Instead of a single shooter on the Galaxy A10, the upcoming phone will feature 13 MP + 2 MP dual-camera setup. The secondary lens is likely to be a depth sensor used for portrait shots. For selfies and video calls, the phone will offer an 8 MP camera. The device will feature connectivity essentials such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, micro USB port, and 3.5 mm headphone jack. The Galaxy A10 s will draw power from a 4,000 mAh battery. On the software side of things, you can expect Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung’s customization on top.

While Samsung still leads the smartphone market, Xiaomi has overpowered it in India thanks to its budget line-up. Therefore, the South Korean company is now focusing on the budget and mid-range market with its M series and A series. The upcoming Galaxy A10s will compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 7.
