Like the Samsung Galaxy M13, the Galaxy A04s might also arrive in two variants: 4G and 5G.

With the 5G spectrum auction scheduled to take place on July 26th and an announcement about the rollout of the services expected for August 15th, Samsung might be in plans to introduce it only after the 5G services launch in India.

Samsung Galaxy A04s is made of a polycarbonate build, which is expected for a phone of this price. It will have triple cameras on the back arranged vertically and an LED flash. The fingerprint sensor is present on the side panel and the front might have a waterdrop notch. It will have a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Samsung Galaxy A04s specifications

According to the Geekbench listing, the Samsung Galaxy A04s is said to come with the Exynos 850 processor, which is a 4G only chipset. So we can speculate the 5G version may have a different SoC.
