The Galaxy A10s is seemingly one step closer to market release; at least in Thailand, where it’s been spotted in the database of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). Having been certified by the NBTC, Samsung has one less formality to worry about before it will be able to launch the device in Thailand.
The Galaxy A10s was spotted at the NBTC carrying the model number SM-A107F/DS. “DS” denotes a dual-SIM variant, and “SM-A107F” is the same model number that’s been spotted before at the FCC as well as the Wi-Fi Alliance.
What we can expect from the Galaxy A10s
The SM-A107F hasn’t enjoyed too many leaks so far and the majority of the information surrounding it comes from the aforementioned regulatory agencies. The NBTC listing hasn’t revealed much about the phone, either, but it did directly link the model number to the Galaxy A10s moniker.
Judging by what we’ve gathered so far, the Galaxy A10s is supposed to be a refresh of the standard Galaxy A10 which was launched earlier this year. The camera might be one of the key areas upon which Samsung has improved. The refreshed model is likely to come with two rear-facing sensors aligned vertically, as opposed to a single one.
The upcoming model might also feature a larger 3,900mAh battery, while an earlier Geekbench listing suggested that the phone could switch to a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset and retain 2GB of RAM. The ongoing Galaxy A10 might also become the OEM’s last smartphone belonging to one of its main series to lack a fingerprint scanner, now that the refreshed model is expected to feature a rear-mounted sensor.
