Reportedly, Samsung is working on a more affordable version of the Galaxy A10 smartphone. Samsung has gone all in with the suffix “e” this year and thus dubbed it as the Galaxy A10e. The smartphone appeared on Wi-Fi Alliance and the FCC certification websites, indicating that the phone, with the model number SM-A102U, could be launching very soon.
For testing purposes, someone in possession of a prototype saw fit to run Geekbench on it, which revealed scores that are in line with the Galaxy A10’s – 3,581 multi-core, 1,163 single-core. The Geekbench’s system information tab says that the Galaxy A10e has the Exynos 7885 chipset at the helm, but this is contradicted both by the phone’s results as well as its CPU’s base clock of 1.35 GHz. This is exactly what the slower cores are clocked at in the Exynos 7884, which is the System-on-Chip(SoC) employed by the Galaxy A10. Based on that, we assume the A10e will have the Exynos 7884 on board too, and not the huskier Exynos 7885.
Like the A10, the A10e runs Android 9 Pie and has 2GB of RAM, which makes the consumers wonder about what the actual differences will be between the two models, and how Samsung has reached the lower price for the “e” iteration. Perhaps it’ll just have a smaller screen and battery, but this is something that remains to be seen. For the camera and other specifications, the device is expected to be similar to Galaxy A10.
