A Bluetooth certification has revealed that Samsung might be working on a device called the Galaxy A04e, featuring model number SM-A042F. However, it seems the A04e will simply be a rebranded Galaxy M04, which was spotted on a benchmark website some months back. And it seems both handsets could be launched soon, as their user manual is now available online.
There aren't a lot of details available about the Galaxy M04, and subsequently, the A04e. The benchmark had revealed the M04 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 processor, which has eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and a IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU, feature at least 3GB of RAM, and run Android 12 out of the box.
None of the other specs are known at this time, although the user manual reveals that there will be two rear cameras on the Galaxy M04 and the Galaxy A04e. The Galaxy A04, which launched back in August, also has a dual rear camera setup of 50MP primary and 2MP depth sensors, but whether or not the megapixel counts will remain the same on the ‘e' variant remains to be seen.
It also remains to be seen when the Galaxy M04 and Galaxy A04e will go official. Even though the two phones are rebranded versions of each other, Samsung is likely to announce them separately, as both the M series and A series target different markets (the M series is less widely available and is focused mainly on developing markets, such as India, and select European countries).
