Samsung Galaxy A20s smartphone gets Wi-Fi certification; may launch soon

“Samsung Galaxy A20s certification include Android 9 Pie operating system as well as support for single band (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2”

Samsung Galaxy A20s smartphone has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, hours after it appeared on the Bluetooth SIG website. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A20s has been certified under four model numbers by the Wi-Fi Alliance: SM-A207F, SM-A207M/DS, SM-A207M, and SM-A2070. Along with these four, the Bluetooth SIG certification had listed the the SM-A207F/DS. The Wi-Fi certifications show the Samsung Galaxy A20s will support only single-band 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks and run Android Pie operating system, whereas the Bluetooth listing shows it will support Bluetooth 4.2 and not the newer Bluetooth 5.0 version. Also, the ‘DS’ in the Wi-Fi Alliance listings refers to Dual SIM, so at least two variants of the handsets will support more than one SIM card at a time.

These listings show the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A20s will be a budget smartphone, much like its predecessor, the Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A20e. Back in June this year, it was reported that the upcoming Galaxy A20s will be released in the second half of 2019 and come in Black and Blue colour options. Considering we are well into the second half of the year, we can expect the Galaxy A20s to be announced anytime soon.
