Samsung’s Upcoming Mid-Range Device Might Feature A 48MP Front Cam With an In-Display Fingerprint Scanner

Samsung has adopted a new strategy where it introduces new technology to it’s mid-range Galaxy A line. The triple rear camera system on the Galaxy A7 (2018) and the world’s first quad-camera system on the Galaxy A9 (2018) being prime examples. With new reports surfacing the Samsung Galaxy A10 seems to follow the same strategy.

Following the release of the A8 and A9 devices, reports have emerged regarding the Samsung Galaxy A10. It is rumored that the A10 will feature a punching method to place the 48 Megapixels front camera in the upper part of the phone, which will make for a better front camera experience unlike the one on the A8, which had the camera positioned awkwardly on the upper left end of the phone. On the other hand, the back of the phone will feature a dual 24 Megapixels/8 Megapixels camera configuration. It will also feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, missing out on the Snapdragon 855 due to the price-point of the device. Coming in with an enormous battery,  at 4300mAH. The device is rumored to be released in 4 different variants

  • 6GB RAM – 64GB Storage/256GB Storage
  • 8GB RAM – 64GB Storage/256GB Storage

The Samsung Galaxy A10 reportedly will feature a under-display fingerprint scanner which will be a first for any Samsung device. This implicates that the upcoming S10 and unnamed Samsung fordable phone may also feature under-display fingerprint scanners, also known from previous leaks. Furthermore, the A10 will also include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, A-GPS, 4G VoLTE, GLONASS and NFC to work with various payment systems including Google Pay and Samsung Pay. Running Android 9.0 pie with a proprietary shell One UI right out the box. All of this combined makes the A10 seem like a good mid-tier phone. According to multiple sources, the A10 will be released in mid-January at CES 2019.
