The 2020 Samsung Galaxy A-series of smartphones was rumored to gain a novel variant called the A01 this year. However, it seems the leak in question has been proved true thanks to new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approvals. They suggest that this Galaxy A01 may be made available through certain carriers this year.

Earlier, a leak from the Indian regulatory agency BIS hinted at the possibility of a phone called the Samsung Galaxy A01 (or SM-A015G/DS) to be released this year. As this would be a highly atypical name for it putative series (for example, its latest releases are the A51 and A71, which are second generations of the A50 and A70 respectively), it was suspicious to say the least.

However, it now seems that this rumor had at least some weight to it. The FCC has just approved 2 devices called the SM-A015V and the SM-A015T1. This has led to speculation that they are in fact Galaxy A01 variants destined for distribution through the Verizon and Metro PCS (a T-Mobile subsidiary) carriers.

Therefore, it now appears the A01 is real after all. Based on its name and the often cost-effective nature of its Samsung phone series, it is possible that it will prove an ultra-budget device on its launch. This may make sense: the Galaxy A11 and so on are currently projected to improve on their 2019 predecessors in terms of storage specs, which may leave space in the bottom tier of the US smartphone market this year.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
