Samsung Galaxy A10 was recently launched in India
Samsung has launched a lot of smartphones recently in its new Galaxy A and Galaxy M budget series and while the Samsung Galaxy A10 is the cheapest of the lot, a new report suggests that the company is also working on a lighter version of the Galaxy A10 which will be called the Samsung Galaxy A10e. Just like the Samsung Galaxy S10e, the Samsung Galaxy A10e is also expected to be based on its more premium version but will come with lower-end specifications and hardware.
According to a report by Droidshout, the Samsung Galaxy A10e was recently spotted on the Wi-Fi certification site and while the device was listed with a model number SM-A102U, the certification site has suggested that the Samsung Galaxy A10e will run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box, which might also have Samsung’s OneUI on top, and the smartphone will also feature dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.
It should be noted that the Samsung Galaxy A10 does not support dual-band Wi-Fi connection which means the Samsung Galaxy A10e will be a step up in this regards. On the other hand, this also raises the possibility of the upcoming smartphone being powered by a different chipset instead of the Exynos 7884 processor on the Galaxy A10. Since it will be a lower-end version of the Galaxy A10, the Samsung Galaxy A10e is also expected to come with a smaller battery as well as display.
To recall, the Samsung Galaxy A10 was launched in India with prices starting at Rs. 8,490 and as for specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A10 sports a 6.2-inch HD+ (720×1520 pixels) Infinity-V display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio while the smartphone is powered by the octa-core Exynos 7884 processor. The Samsung Galaxy A10 further comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable via microSD. While the Samsung Galaxy A10 runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with Samsung’s own skin on top while it also supports Dual SIM connectivity along with a dedicated microSD card slot.
For optics, there is a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture, PDAF, LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture. Other features of the Samsung Galaxy A10 include face unlock, 3.5mm audio jack, Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), NFC, and a 3,400 battery.
