After taking the wraps off the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 smartphones a few days back, Samsung today introduced the most affordable new Galaxy A-series smartphone. Dubbed Samsung Galaxy A10, the smartphone is positioned slightly above the Galaxy M10 entry-level Android smartphone that the company launched last month.
The new Galaxy A10 sports a 6.2-inch Infinity-V display with HD+ resolution, just like the Galaxy M10. It is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7884 octa-core processor with two ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 1.35GHz and six ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.35 GHz. The entry-level handset will be available in only one memory configuration with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Fortunately, users will be able to expand the storage further by up to 512GB as the handset has a dedicated microSD card slot.
When it comes to optics, the new Galaxy A10 is surprisingly not as impressive as its M-series sibling. Instead of a 13MP + 5MP dual-camera setup, it features a single 13MP rear camera clubbed with an f/1.9 aperture. The selfie camera, which is housed within the waterdrop notch, is a 5MP module coupled with an f/2.0 aperture.
While the other Galaxy A-series smartphones announced so far pack a 4000mAh battery, the Galaxy A10 comes with a smaller 3400mAh capacity cell. On the plus side, Galaxy A10 will ship with Samsung’s latest One UI, based on Android Pie.
The Samsung Galaxy A10 will go on sale starting March 2 in Blue, Black, and Red colors. In India, the smartphone has been priced at INR 8,490 ($119). In addition to the Galaxy A10, Samsung has also launched the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 smartphones in the Indian market. The Galaxy A30 has been priced at INR 16,990 ($239), while the 4GB + 64GB variant of the Galaxy A50 will cost INR 19,990 ($281) in the country. Samsung has priced the 6GB + 64GB variant of the Galaxy A50 at INR 22,990 ($323).
