Samsung’s budget Galaxy A03 passes the FCC with 5,000 mAh battery


Last updated: September 29th, 2021 at 09:54 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s got another entry-level Galaxy A series phone in the works. It’s possibly going to be called the Galaxy A03, and it’s now taken a step closer to an official launch by grabbing certification from the FCC.

The FCC certification gives us a basic outline of the A03’s design and mentions a 5,000 mAh battery, along with the usual details on its network connectivity (there’s no 5G, in case you’re wondering). 5,000 mAh batteries are pretty standard across Samsung’s budget Galaxy A smartphones, and it seems the A03 will do nothing to change that.

The Galaxy A03 features a UNISOC processor

However, the A03 will bring a notable change elsewhere: It will use a chip from UNISOC instead of MediaTek. The former is a Chinese chipmaker that was previously called Spreadtrum and makes unexciting low-end processors that have powered other Galaxy smartphones in the past, and you can expect the A03 to leave everyone unimpressed with its performance.

To be specific, the A03 will be powered by the Unisoc SC9863A chipset, as revealed by its Geekbench listing. The base model will come with 2GB of RAM, and going by the Galaxy A02, a variant with 3GB of RAM will probably be offered, as well. On the software side, the A03 will come running Android 11, likely with the Core version of One UI 3.1 that strips out all of the interesting Samsung features.

The Galaxy A02’s release date is unknown at the moment, but we can expect it to arrive sometime before the end of the year considering it’s already made the trip to the FCC.
