If there were still some doubts left regarding the name of the next device to join the Galaxy A10 lineup, a new certification body confirms that the Galaxy A10s with the model number SM-A107F/DS is in the cards. Sadly, the details that have been listed online in relation to this specific certification do not confirm any specs or features.

The next low-end member of the Galaxy A family is expected to arrive soon with a generous battery and a MediaTek Helio P22 processor. This upcoming handset is also expected to come with one feature not present in its sibling — the existing Galaxy A10, namely the fingerprint reader. However, nothing is official yet.

The device with the model number SM-A107F has been already spotted online at the end of last month when it had received its certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. Back then, it had no official name. Now, the same model number has been spotted on the website of the Thai certification authority NBTC. Although there is no technical information to talk about, the NBTC listing for the SM-A107F/DS device confirms that its name is Galaxy A10s.

If the Samsung Galaxy A10s turns out to feature a 3,900 mAh battery as rumored, that would be a noticeable upgrade from the 3,400 mAh power pack used by the Exynos 7884-powered Galaxy A10. A fingerprint reader is also a must-have feature for any smartphone in 2019, even when talking about low-end devices. These being said, remains to see how much will add Samsung to the price of the Galaxy A10 (usually available for around US$135) to make it an attractive choice.

Would you buy a smartphone without a fingerprint reader in 2019? Do you think that Samsung should leave the low-end and affordable mid-range sectors and focus on premium devices instead?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
