In order to win back the support from the Indian market, Samsung could soon launch their A series lineup- which is a mid tier lineup with powerful specifications. According to reports, the phones may launch in India on February 28. If this is to be believed, then it means that the launch will come just a day after the launch of the Galaxy M30 and on the same day as the launch of the rivaling Xiaomi Redmi Note 7.
The reports suggest that the A series lineup will consist of three phones- Galaxy A10, A20 and A30. Additionally, the three phones will first debut in India and subsequently be available in other markets. As per reports, it was also suggested that Samsung would take a leaf out of Xiaomi’s book and launch a new phone every month. All of this points to the fact that they wish to recapture the Indian mobile market once again.
The Samsung Galaxy A10 and A20, both have similar 6.2-inch screens with an identical resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels. The A30, on the other hand, has a slightly larger 6.4-inch display and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. All three phones are expected to launch with either an Infinity-V or Infinity-U display, which is just a fancy name for a waterdrop notch.
As far as processor and RAM are concerned, the A10 and A20 run on the same Exynos 7885 processor and come with 3GB RAM onboard. As for the A30, it runs on the more powerful Exynos 7904 chipset with a bigger 4GB RAM variant. The A10 and A20 will come with only 32GB storage on board, while the A30 will come with 64GB internal storage.
As for cameras, the A30 will have a dual camera set up with a 16-megapixel primary lens, a 5-megapixel secondary sensor and the front-facing camera is a 16-megapixel camera. The A20 also comes with a dual rear camera set up with the primary sensor being 13-megapixels and the secondary camera having a 5-megapixel depth sensor. Up front, the phone sports an 8-megapixel sensor. The A10, on the other hand, has only a single 13-megapixel rear camera. At the front, it packs in a 5-megapixel camera.
All three phones will run on Android 9.0 based OneUI which is Samsung’s latest skin. The Galaxy A10 and the A30 will have a 4,000mAH battery while the A20 will have a smaller 3,000mAH battery.
From other reports, it has been revealed that Samsung is investing about $4 billion on the Indian market as they aim to regain lost ground. Their upcoming A series phones should rival OPPO, Xiaomi, Vivo and Motorola phones at the same price point.
