Galaxy A10e now available on Boost Mobile in the US
After making its US debut on AT&T last week, the Galaxy A10e has now landed on Boost Mobile as well. For those unaware, Boost Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that runs on Sprint’s network. The press release says the device will also be available through Sprint starting July 19.
As the moniker indicates, the Galaxy A10e is an entry-level budget device from Samsung. The ‘e’ versions of the new A series devices appear to be minor downgrades from the regular models, while the yet-to-be-launched ‘s’ variants are supposed to be marginal upgrades. As such, the Galaxy A10e is an inferior version of the regular A10 available in other markets.
The Galaxy A10e comes with a 5.83-inch Infinity-V HD+ display, Exynos 7884B SoC, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microSD slot, 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. It runs Android 9 Pie with Samsung’s One UI on top, like all other recent Galaxy devices. Compared to the regular A10, the ‘e’ variant comes with a smaller display, reduced battery capacity, and a lower resolution rear camera.
Boost Mobile’s pricing of the Galaxy A10e is not straightforward as the device comes bundled with a monthly plan. Customers can get the A10e for just $49.99 if they switch to Boost Mobile before July 19 and opt for a $50 or higher monthly plan. This applies to only new customers who are porting from non-Sprint-related networks.
