Update (16/07/2019): The Galaxy A10s has now received another important certification on its way to launch after its Wi-Fi Alliance listing in late June. The same model number (SM-A107F/DS) has now popped up on Bluetooth SIG today and it carries a Bluetooth 4.2 module. There’s not much to this listing, however, it’s an indication for the handset being one more step closer to its launch. That said, there’s still no official announcement from Samsung yet.
28/06/2019: Samsung’s upcoming entry-level Galaxy A10s smartphone was recently certified by the US FCC, hinting at an imminent launch. The Galaxy A10s has now been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, so we can expect an official announcement to be made very soon.
Samsung Galaxy A10s Bags Wi-Fi Certification, May Launch Soon
The Samsung Galaxy A10s Wi-Fi certification confirms the phone will have support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and run on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. As revealed by the smartphone’s FCC listing, the Galaxy A10s will have a 3900mAh capacity battery. The smartphone measures 157 x 75.8 in terms of physical size and will have a dual-camera setup at the rear. Under the hood, previous leaks have suggested the A10s will run on a MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core chipset, clubbed with 2GB of RAM. Since the rest of the smartphone’s spec sheet remains a mystery for now, we may have to wait longer to find out what other features will differentiate the Galaxy A10s from the Galaxy A10.
The Samsung Galaxy A10, which arrived in the Indian market in March this year, sports a 6.2-inch Infinity-V display with HD+ resolution. It runs on an Exynos 7884 octa-core processor, clubbed with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. On the back of the phone is a 13MP snapper with an f/1.9 aperture and support for Full HD video recording. For selfies, the Galaxy A10 sports a 5MP front-facing camera. It has a 3400mAh capacity non-removable battery, which isn’t quite best-in-class. Unsurprisingly, the phone lacks fast charging support. It remains to be seen if the Galaxy A10s will have fast charging support along with a larger battery.
Samsung had also launched the Galaxy A10e earlier this month, featuring a 5.83-inch Infinity-V display. In addition to a smaller display, the handset has an 8MP snapper on the back and comes with 32GB of onboard storage.
