The Samsung Galaxy A10 (or SM-A105) was launched in India recently for the rough equivalent of US$120. Now, it seems that more variants of the same line have emerged. Their model numbers resemble those of the A10; however, at least 1 has a MediaTek SoC rather than an Exynos one.

The Galaxy A10 is one of Samsung's latest mid-to-low tier smartphone range for 2019. However, there are also hints out there that they will soon be joined by new variants for the A line soon. These rumors have gained momentum recently, with evidence of devices with new model numbers popping up on benchmarking and regulatory websites.

One of these purported phones is the Galaxy A10e. From the look of its product name, it seems that it may be pitched at an even lower price-point compared to the original A10. Its model number is SM-A102U, which has been inextricably linked to the actual marketing moniker by a Bluetooth SIG certification. However, more confusingly, it seems there is yet another new variant out there: the SM-A107F.

This new phone, which has surfaced on Geekbench 4.0 recently, may or may not have similar specs to the Galaxy A10. However, it is clear that it will have a different SoC. The A10 (or SM-A105) is powered by the Exynos 7884 chipset, whereas the benchmark's listing shows the A107F patently possesses a MediaTek CPU. From its specs and scores, it is likely that this silicon is the Helio P22 processor. This phone also exhibits only 2GB of RAM, whereas the A10 has 3.

Therefore, it seems that there is a new A-line Galaxy smartphone in the works, which may or may not resemble the A10. It also seems that, given the typical Samsung nomenclature, it is also destined for a market different from that of the A10.
