Samsung is rapidly expanding its lineup of smartphones. The A-series is almost complete. We have the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50, Galaxy A70and Galaxy A80! From budget phones to high-end ones, the A-series seems to pack all of it. Actually, there are Galaxy A40 and A60 in China. So, we can say the A-series is complete. However, Samsung seems to think they’re not enough. They recently brought the Galaxy A10e and now, they’re back with the Samsung Galaxy A10s.
First I thought, was a new variant of the Galaxy A10 necessary? Because there’s so many to choose from, right? But the Galaxy A10s has a lot of improvements. And they’re noticeable right away!
First off, the Galaxy A10s features dual cameras at the back. The A10 had only a single primary camera, but the A10s adds a new depth sensor. This may not be much, but it at least, means that you can take portrait shots from the phone on the hardware level. Also, the selfie camera has improved. It’s now an 8 MP shooter.
Another change that’s visible right away is the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The A10 didn’t have any, nor did the Galaxy M10. But this one does, making a pretty good case for a budget smartphone.

Other external features stay pretty much the same. The display is still a 6.2″ IPS LCD with that Infinity-U display and HD+ resolution. Also, the design language isn’t much different. But there are other changes inside. The Samsung Galaxy A10s runs on the Helio P22 chipset, which is better than the Exynos 7884 on the A10 – at least on paper. In addition, there is an increase in battery size. The Samsung Galaxy A10s features a large 4000 mAh battery, compared to 3400mAh in the A10.
That is pretty much it for the Galaxy A10s. I can’t say how much of a difference will it make in terms of processing power, but other things considered, it is a good improvement over the Galaxy A10. However, there is no word on pricing or anything else just yet.
