More information surrounding the upcoming Galaxy A10s has popped up over the weekend through a series of FCC documents. The papers pertain to the model number SM-A107F and reveal the smartphone’s overall dimensions along with several other features. They offer a glimpse at the rear panel’s design, which suggests that the device should now be equipped with a fingerprint sensor and possibly even two main cameras.

More features, bigger battery, and a dual camera?

While the ongoing Galaxy A10 is the only device in the mid-range series to lack a fingerprint sensor, this characteristic is bound to change with the release of the upgraded model. The sketches depicting the FCC label show a clear cut-out for a rear fingerprint scanner mounted in the center.

Likewise, they indicate that the LED flash will no longer be contained within the rear camera cutout. More interestingly, the camera cutout itself has retained the shape of a rectangle with rounded corners, which strongly hints at the possibility that the Galaxy A10s will have two main cameras instead of a single sensor, much like the Galaxy A20, A20e, A30, and A40 all have.

There’s no information surrounding the camera configuration, but another area in which the SM-A107F should be upgraded is the battery capacity. The phone would reportedly rely on a 3,900mAh unit – up from 3,400mAh – and its footprint is apparently just a bit taller, measuring 157mm in height, as opposed to 155mm.

Previously, we found out through our sources that the Galaxy A10s will feature 32GB of onboard memory – same as the device that it’s based on – and that it will launch in four color options: red, green, blue, and black. Furthermore, an earlier entry of the SM-A107F in Geekbench hints at 2GB of RAM, a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset, and Android 9 Pie.

It remains to be seen when and where the Galaxy A10s will become available for purchase, but seeing how it emerged from the FCC, the device is virtually one step closer to release.
