Galaxy A10s is a mid-range aftershock to Galaxy Note 10

Even though the Galaxy Note 10 is barely out of the gate, Samsung is back to revealing new phones today. Today’s reveal of the Galaxy A10s doesn’t have nearly as much fanfare as the Galaxy Note 10 enjoyed, but given the Note 10’s status as a flagship, that isn’t really surprisingly. Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy A10s doesn’t amount to much more than an infographic about the phone covering its main specifications, making it feel like something of an afterthought.

In any case, just like the other devices in the Galaxy A line, the A10s is decidedly a mid-range phone. On the front, you’ll find a 6.2-inch TFT display that outputs at 720 x 1520. This is one of Samsung’s Infinity-V displays, so there’s a water drop notch that houses the selfie camera, which clocks in at 8MP.

On the inside, there’s an octa-core processor of unspecified make with four cores clocked at 2.0GHz and the other four clocked at 1.5GHz. That CPU is paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but as with most Samsung handsets, you can also expand on the phone’s internal storage by way of a microSD card. Around the back, you’ll find a dual camera with a 13MP main lens and a 2MP depth lens.

The rear side of the phone is also where the fingerprint sensor resides, though you can also secure your phone via face recognition if that’s more your style. The Galaxy A10s runs Android 9.0 out of the box and boasts dual SIM capabilities as well. All told, this a fairly standard mid-range device from Samsung, though it’s worth noting that the 4,000 mAh could last quite a while when you consider the display it’s powering.

Strangely enough, there’s no talk of pricing, release dates, or launch regions in Samsung’s infographic, which are arguably the most important details when it comes to mid-range devices like this. A series phones tend to have pretty wide releases around the world, but we’re left waiting on Samsung for more official details. Stay tuned.
