Samsung Galaxy A03s India launch looks imminent following BIS certification

Highlights
  • Samsung Galaxy A03s has shown up on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website, indicating that it is certified for launch in India.
  • The Galaxy A03s is, for the most part, nearly identical to the low-cost Galaxy A02s.
  • There is no word about the Samsung Galaxy A03s India launch date just yet.

We exclusively showcased some Galaxy A03s renders some time ago. They showcased a fairly entry-level phone, as expected out of a Galaxy A series device. Now, MySmartPrice has stumbled upon the smartphone on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website, indicating that it is ready to be launched in India. Its Indian variant will be called SM-A037F/DS, according to the listing. Based on what we’ve seen of the Galaxy A03s so far, it mostly keeps its predecessor, the Galaxy A02s’ design. Its specs will likely remain the same, too, with a few minor tweaks here and there.

Galaxy A03s specifications

For starters, the Galaxy A03s will ship with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel that has a V-shaped notch to house its 5MP selfie camera. Under the hood, we’re probably looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 (or newer) chipset, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It could also reuse its predecessor’s 5,000mAh battery, which supports 15W fast charging.

At the rear, the Samsung Galaxy A03s will pack a triple camera setup. Its predecessor featured a 13MP primary sensor along with a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. That is unlikely to change, given that the smartphone will be a low-cost offering. Other features could include a USB Type-C port and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It’s hard to tell when Samsung plans on launching the Galaxy A03s in India, but it shouldn’t be long before we hear something officially.
