“The Galaxy A10 and A60 are both expected to be the upcoming mid-range smartphones from Samsung”
Not all mid-range Samsung Galaxy A-series will ship with an OLED display, claims a new report. As we all know, the chaebol will reportedly introduce as many as nine smartphones under its Galaxy A series in 2019. The handsets have been the subject to a number of leaks and rumours recently. Most recently, the Galaxy A70 was tipped to arrive with an impressive 4,400mAh battery. Now, a report by South Korea’s ET News sheds some light on the upcoming Galaxy A10 and Galaxy A60 smartphones.
The handsets – Galaxy A10 and Galaxy A80 – are reported to pack LCD screens instead of OLED panels. Samsung seems to be stepping back after introducing all 2018 Galaxy A series phones with OLED displays. However, using cheaper LCD panels in some models would allow Samsung to cater to the mid to low-end range without affecting its profits as much. Hence, we could see a mixed bag of LCD and OLED devices in the upcoming Galaxy A series.
“The introduction of LCD models to Samsung’s Galaxy A series is a strategy to expand responsiveness in the mid to low-end phone market. Galaxy A series will be expanded to broaden the customer base,” the report adds. Additionally, the industry estimates 2.5 to 3 million units of the Galaxy A10 will be shipped per month.
While there’s little to no information available about the Galaxy A10, the Galaxy A60 was recently reported to launch in April 2019. The handset is rumoured to flaunt an Infinity O display and may launch with Galaxy A8s Lite moniker in some markets. That’s all we know about it at the moment. However, as stated above Samsung is looking to launch nine models in the Galaxy A-series. The devices will most likely be launched in the first half of 2019 with highlights such as in-display fingerprint sensors, a ToF 3D sensor, dual- or triple-rear camera setup, and Infinity-O displays.
In the meantime, Samsung is all set to introduce Galaxy M series smartphone in India on January 28th. The affordable series is expected to replace Galaxy On, Galaxy C, and Galaxy J series. The new Galaxy M series smartphones are confirmed to arrive with Infinity V display, dual rear cameras, and a whopping battery with fast charging support.
