Samsung launched a new “A” series phone in India today that was announced a couple of weeks back. It’s the Samsung Galaxy A10s, the minor upgrade to the Galaxy A10 which was the cheapest “A” series phone of this year when it launched. Some new upgrades include Dual Cameras on the back, a fingerprint scanner, & a bigger battery.
The design is the same as Galaxy A10 except for the rear-facing fingerprint scanner & dual cameras, which weren’t there on the A10. There is the same Infinity-V display on the front. In fact, the display size also remains the same, i.e., a 6.2-inch HD+ panel (1520 x 720). There is an octa-core SOC, the name of which is not known. The chipset has four cores clocked at 2.0GHz & other four cores at 1.5GHz.
There is a dual-camera setup on the back that includes a primary 13MP f/1.8 shooter & a secondary 2MP depth sensor. So, the primary camera has a larger f/1.8 aperture than the f/1.9 aperture on Galaxy A10’s 13MP camera. On the front, the Samsung Galaxy A10s has an 8MP f/2.0 camera, so that’s also upgraded from 5MP camera on the A10.
There is 2/3GB RAM & 32GB internal storage with an option to add a microSD card up to 512GB, thanks to a triple card slot. There is a 4,000mAh battery underneath that is an upgrade from the 3,400mAh battery of Galaxy A10. Finally, Android 9 Pie runs out of the box.
The Samsung Galaxy A10s will be available in three colours in India – Blue, Green & Black. It will go on sale from August 28, 2019, across all retail stores, e-Shop, Samsung Opera House and all major leading online channels. Here is the pricing –
