Galaxy A10e specifications revealed by Geekbench benchmark
Samsung’s upcoming “e” variant of the Galaxy A10 is nearing its launch. The device, Galaxy A10e, recently passed through the FCC with model number SM-A102U and also secured Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications. Now, ahead of the impending launch, it has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing some key specs.
Galaxy A10e specs include Exynos 7884 SoC with 2GB RAM
The Geekbench listing says the Galaxy A10e has the Exynos 7885 chipset with eight physical cores. However, the actual benchmark scores and the CPU’s base frequency of 1.35 GHz suggest it to be the Exynos 7884 instead, the same chipset as the standard A10. After all, it wouldn’t really make sense for an “e” variant to better than its non-“e” sibling. Coincidentally, the Galaxy A10 was also reported to have an Exynos 7885 chipset by the Geekbench benchmark.
The Galaxy A10e also gets 2GB of RAM and will come with Android 9 Pie out of the box, exactly like the A10. This essentially means the two devices will offer pretty much identical performance. However, since the “e” variant is supposed to be cheaper, Samsung may downgrade the A10e in some other areas, such as a smaller display and battery. And if that’s the case, we could be looking at a compact budget phone from Samsung.
The model number SM-A102U suggests that the Galaxy A10e will be launched in the US as well, which is a rarity for Samsung’s budget phones. Samsung also has at least three other Galaxy A phones, the Galaxy A20, A50, and the A70, in the pipeline for a US launch.
