For the longest time, customers in North America didn’t have the option to buy smartphones from Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A series. That changed in 2018, when Samsung launched the Galaxy A6 (2018) in the US, and in 2019, we saw a few more A series phones make their to the country. This year should be no different, and we already know that the Galaxy A51 will be launching stateside at some point. Now, FCC certifications have revealed that the Galaxy A01 is on its way to the US as well.

The FCC has certified two models of the phone. One is the SM-A015V, which should be the carrier-locked model for Verizon. The other is the SM-A015T1 for Metro PCS, T-Mobile’s prepaid brand. The Galaxy A01 will probably be sold by other carriers in the country as well, although at this time only the Verizon and Metro PCS variants have been spotted. Samsung is also developing firmware for the Verizon variant but not for the Metro PCS variant, so Verizon could be the first carrier to start selling the device.

In terms of features and specs, the Galaxy A01 is rather similar to the Galaxy A10e, which is the most affordable A series phone available in the US right now. It comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ Infinity-V display, an octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a dual rear camera setup with 13MP primary and 2MP depth sensors, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 10 with One UI 2.0 out of the box.
