We’ve speculated based on an early FCC listing that the upcoming Galaxy A10s will be equipped with a dual-camera system. Now, additional information surrounding the camera setup has emerged via Ishan Agarwal on Twitter, and the device will reportedly have a 13-megapixel unit coupled with a 2-megapixel rear-facing shooter. This is rather unusual because Samsung usually sticks to at least a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for dual-camera setups, but the company could switch gears for the upcoming budget phone.
On the opposite side, the Galaxy A10s could feature an 8-megapixel selfie camera, which would also be a notable upgrade over the 5-megapixel unit employed by the standard Galaxy A10 and the Galaxy A10e.
The Galaxy A10s might also switch to a MediaTek chipset
Another area where the Galaxy A10s will be upgraded is the battery. It will reportedly feature a 4,000mAh unit, and this seems to confirm the previous 3,900mAh capacity spotted at the FCC. The mAh value usually varies slightly across the board for every device. As such, 4,000mAh would be the typical battery size but regulatory agencies publish the minimum battery capacity. In any case, the Galaxy A10s would be upgraded considerably from the 3,400mAh unit powering the Galaxy A10.
Other features that have been reiterated include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor (also seen previously in FCC sketches) and the inclusion of an octa-core chipset. However, this might not be the same Exynos 7884 SoC featured on the standard Galaxy A10, and instead, the silicon might be the Helio P22 supplied by MediaTek.
The Galaxy A10s has been given green light by the FCC, the Wi-Fi Alliance, and Bluetooth SIG. A rather underwhelming intro video of the device has been leaked earlier this week, and all of these events strongly suggest that Samsung is readying the Galaxy A10s for an imminent release.
