A new version of the Samsung Galaxy A10 with a fingerprint scanner and bigger battery may be in the works
The Samsung Galaxy A10 was released earlier this year, and hovers around the US$100 price-point. It offers Android 9.0 (Pie), 1TB microSD card support and a 6.2-inch screen (albeit a 720p one) for that much. Now, it appears that a further variation on its general design with an additional feature or two is on the way.
This possibility is based on a leak of information that has allegedly come from the US Federal Communicatoins Commission (FCC). It seems to shows that a phone called the SM-A107F has been certified. As the Galaxy A10 is also known as the SM-A105F, this could be a new version of this same device.
The "listing" shows a schematic of the phone, which depicts it as having a fingerprint sensor, which the Galaxy A10 lacks. This component is a conventional, rear-facing one, indicating that the supposed "Galaxy A10s" is still somewhat of a budget device. This documentation also indicates that the SM-A107F gets a 3900mAh battery, whereas the 'vanilla' A10 makes do with 3400mAh. Finally, there are also hints that this allegedly upcoming Samsung phone retains its possible forebear's 3.5mm jack.
