Samsung stunned its fans in India with the launch of its first Galaxy M-series smartphones last week. The new Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 both sport Infinity-V displays and are a huge upgrade over Samsung’s previous generation budget smartphones in every single area. Thanks to one of our trusted sources, we can now confirm that Samsung will be launching three new Galaxy A-series smartphones in India with an aim to boost its market share in the highly competitive budget segment. As we had told you in a previous report, the mid-range Galaxy A50 will also be launched in India soon after its global debut.
Samsung’s Upcoming Galaxy A-Series to Start at INR 8,490 in India
The first 2019 Galaxy A-series smartphones to launch in India are expected to be the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, and Galaxy A30. All the three upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphones will come with an AMOLED display. The Galaxy M10 and M20, in comparison, sport PLS TFT display panels. In terms of battery life, however, the Galaxy A-series handsets will not be as impressive as the Galaxy M-series models. While we cannot confirm exact battery capacities for all three models, we can confirm that the three A-series smartphones will feature a 4000mAh or lower capacity battery. As for pricing, the Galaxy A10 will start at INR 8,490 in India, just INR 500 more than the Galaxy M10. The 2019 Galaxy A-series smartphones are likely to go on sale in India by the end of the first quarter or at the beginning of the second quarter. While the Galaxy M-series is targeted at the online segment, the upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphones will focus mainly on the offline segment.
The Samsung Galaxy A10, A20, and A30 were all spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database recently. According to information revealed by the Geekbench listings, all three smartphones will be powered by an Exynos 7885 octa-core processor. In the memory department, however, the Galaxy A10 will only feature 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy A20, on the other hand, will come equipped with 3GB of RAM. Since it will be more expensive than the Galaxy A10 and A20, the Galaxy A30 will feature 4GB of RAM. On the software front, all upcoming Galaxy A-series models are expected to launch with Android 9 Pie-based One UI out of the box.
