Samsung has quietly launched its latest budget smartphone, the Galaxy A10s through a blog post. As the name suggests, the device is an upgraded variant of the Galaxy A10 which was launched back in the month of February. The latest handset boasts of notable improvements in terms of battery and camera performance.
The Samsung Galaxy A10s measures 156.9 x 75.8 x 7.8mm and weighs 168g. Like its predecessor, the smartphone features a polycarbonate body with a glossy coloured back. It has a 6.2 inch TFT display with a resolution of 1520 x 720 px. To maximise the screen real estate, it also has an Infinity V style notch on the top of the display, just like the Galaxy A10. For biometrics and rapidly accessing the handset, a fingerprint scanner is present on the rear along with the support for face unlock. The addition of the fingerprint scanner is a newly added feature, as it was not present on the previous generation of the Galaxy A10s.
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy A10s is kitted with an unknown Exynos SoC. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and an unnamed GPU. In terms of optics, the smartphone has a dual rear camera setup, which is an upgrade from the single rear camera found on its predecessor. The primary lens is an f/1.8 aperture equipped 13MP sensor; which is combined with an f/2.4 aperture equipped 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, an f/2.0 aperture equipped 8MP camera is present on the notch on top of the display. The handset will ship with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, the latter of which is expandable via microSD cards of up to 512GB in capacity.
One of the major upgrades in the Galaxy A10s over the Galaxy A10 in the battery size. The latest smartphone is powered by a 4000 mAh battery, a significant bump of 600 mAh over the previous handset. The device runs on the latest Android 9 Pie which is skinned with Samsung’s OneUI on top. It will be available in four colour variants, namely Red, Black, Green and Black. Unfortunately, Samsung has not announced the pricing and availability of the Galaxy A10s. However, since the smartphone has already been announced, we expect the information to follow soon enough.
