Samsung’s A-series devices are pretty popular in the smartphone industry. If you want the best of Samsung experience, without spending a lot then A series of devices are just great. The cheapest A series device so far is the A10 but we are receiving leaks about an even cheaper A series device from Samsung. In fact, there are two model numbers that have come forward, SM-A015F and SM-A015F/DS, one is the single SIM version and the other is the dual SIM version respectively. The name for this device has been confirmed as the Samsung Galaxy A01.
Now as per the FCC certification, some specifications have been confirmed. Firstly we will have a dual-camera setup on the back with no physical or optical fingerprint sensor. A 3.5mm audio jack will be present on the smartphone. In terms of battery, we have a 3,000 mAh battery. We might see a face unlock feature on this device as there are no signs of a fingerprint sensor in the FCC. As an entry-level smartphone, Samsung is going to make a few cost cuttings and bio-metric protection might be one of them.
Additionally, Geekbench data suggests that Samsung Galaxy A01 will have an octa-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It will run on Android 10 out of the box and that’s the selling point for Samsung here. They will try to offer a close to premium software experience at a fraction of the price of a premium device.
