According to a tipster, the Galaxy A10 would be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature the in-display fingerprint reader. Samsung seems to have employed a new tactic to bolster its presence in the upper-mid price segment with its A-series smartphones. For instance, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A9 (2018) as its first smartphone to feature quad rear cameras.
Similarly, Samsung’s recently unveiled Galaxy A8s featuring a punch-hole selfie camera that goes behind the display. Now, Samsung Galaxy A10 is tipped to feature the in-display fingerprint reader.
Back in September, the same tipster had suggested Samsung is working on a Snapdragon 845-powered A-series smartphone. If that’s true, it would be the first Samsung Galaxy A-series phone to feature Snapdragon 845 chip. More information is awaited.
Given the fact that both the Galaxy A9 (2018) and A8s have 8GB RAM variant, we can safely assume Samsung would provide users with up to 8GB RAM. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy A10 towards the end of January 2019.
Samsung Galaxy A10 with the in-display fingerprint reader is likely to follow in the footsteps of OnePlus 6T, Oppo R17 Pro, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Vivo V11 Pro.
In related news, Samsung Galaxy M-series smartphone could be in works. Reports suggest Samsung Galaxy M-series might replace the company’s existing Galaxy J, C and On series in order to streamline its line-up of affordable smartphones.
Samsung is tipped to announce two Galaxy M-series phones at first: Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20. As per the benchmark listing, Samsung Galaxy M10 would be powered by an Exynos 7870 processor and 3GB of RAM.
Samsung Galaxy M20, on the other hand, will reportedly pack in a 5,000 mAh battery. The M20 tipped to feature an Exynos 7885 SoC with 3GB of RAM. The handset is likely to feature a 6-inch standard LCD IPS panel. Samsung Galaxy M20 is rumoured to provide users with 13MP + 5MP dual rear camera. Up front could be an 8MP selfie sensor.
