Samsung recently launched its first smartphones with the Infinity V display in India. The mid-range Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 is priced strategically to compete with the feature packed affordable smartphones from Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei Honor.
Samsung seems to really interested in the mid-range segment as another smartphone with model number SM-A105F is spotted in benchmarking website GeekBench. Dubbed as the Galaxy A10, it is powered by the Exynos 7885 which is technically a higher clocked version of the Exynos 7904, which powers the Galaxy M20. There is also a possibility that it is actually the Exynos 7904 as benchmarking apps are said to mistakenly identify it as the 7885 due to the similarities between them.
Even if the Galaxy A10 is powered by the slightly more powerful Exynos 7885, it might be affordable than the Galaxy M20 as it comes with just 2GB RAM compared to the base variant of the M20 with 3GB RAM. The device is expected to come with more storage configurations.
Furthermore, the GeekBench specs sheet revealed it to run Android 9 Pie out of the box unlike the Galaxy M10 and M20 which run on an old Android 8.1 Oreo. There will likely to come with Samsung Experience 9.5 on top and a One UI update later on. The smartphone managed a score of 1121 and 3469 points on the single-core and multi-core test respectively.
Last year, it was reported that the Korean manufacturer will be merging its Galaxy J series into A series and rebrand the On series to M series. The conversion is going pretty well with many customers liking the M series for its price and display. This move is cited to the fact that the entry-level and mid-range is dominated by manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, Honor and OPPO.
