Samsung Galaxy A01 Smartphone Yet Confirmed, Might be the Cheapest A-series
Courtesy of a Geekbench listing, we have been hearing about Samsung prepping to launch another addition to its popular mid-ranger family – the Galaxy A-series. As per the leak, a Samsung smartphone bearing the model number, SM-A015F popped up a few months back but speculations suggested that the model was actually a test device (read: not meant for production) and it was later believed to be the Galaxy A5. But a freshly spotted FCC listing confirms that the rumored handset is, in fact, dubbed Galaxy A01. This latest leak also offers a peek into the design and specifications of this purported offering.
Pictured below is the ‘skeleton’ of Samsung Galaxy A01 which reveals that the phone will offer a twin-camera setup and an LED flash aligned in a vertical arrangement. The dimensions remain yet-to-be-confirmed but the width maxes out at 67.6 mm. Speaking of which, the screen size measures 5.7 inches that will sport an unknown display.
In a similar vein, Samsung is keeping the SoC details under the wraps but we do know that the chipset will have 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of native storage baked into it. This hardware will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and an out-of-the-box Android 10 OS, according to the FCC listing.
These features coupled with its modest screen size and a twin-camera setup lead us to believe that the phone will be an entry-level device, that could sell for a starting price even lower than the Samsung A10S, making it the cheapest of the bunch. Note that Galaxy A10 had a price tag of roughly $100 and if the Korean tech giant manages to cut it back further, it’d pull ahead of most pocket-friendly Chinese brands.
Which brings us to our final point. The Galaxy A01 won’t be manufactured in-house but rather would be outsourced to a Chinese firm, Jiaxing Yongrui Electron Technology. This outsourcing is precisely the reason why Galaxy A10 debuted with a remarkably low price tag. It’s too early to brag about the release schedule or the Samsung price tag for that matter, let alone its appearance in Pakistan.
