Samsung Galaxy A10e with model number SM-A102U has been certified by both Bluetooth SIG body and Wi-Fi Alliance on the same day.
Samsung’s most affordable smartphone in the Galaxy A Series lineup, the Galaxy A10, was launched in India in the last week of February. While we were aware almost all models in the Galaxy-A lineup, including the Galaxy A20e, there was no hint of the presence of this phone so far until we spotted the certification listings today.
The Bluetooth listing confirms that the phone will support the latest version Bluetooth 5.0. The Wi-Fi Alliance listing which we spotted earlier during the day confirmed that the phone will ship with the latest Android 9 Pie OS.
As a matter of fact, in addition to Galaxy A20, Samsung released Galaxy A20e which had slightly smaller display at 5.8 inches and 3000 mAh battery when compared to the 6.4 inch display and 4000 mAh battery in Galaxy A20.
Galaxy A10 was released last month with basic specifications of 2 GB RAM, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, 3400 mAh battery and the phone was powered by Exynos 7884 processor. The display measured 6.2 inches and the screen resolution was 1520 x 720 pixels.
In the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A10e, we can expect the screen size and battery capacity to slightly lower than the Galaxy A10 and there is also a possibility that Samsung might power the Galaxy A10e with a new SoC. Other specs including RAM and camera are expected to be similar to Galaxy A10. The pricing is expected to be close to $100.
The phone hasn’t been approved in any other country and it has not appeared in certification sites. In the coming days, we hope to see this phone certified in other countries which will confirm the regions the Galaxy A10e will be released.
