Rumours suggest that Samsung might be launching new phones in the A series to combat the heated competition from Xiaomi and Honor in the entry-level segment.

MySmartPrice reports that the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20 and the Galaxy A30 will all include AMOLED displays. The Galaxy A10 is believed to start at 8,490 rupees (~$119), which is a bit more than the newly announced Galaxy M10. Samsung is definitely placing a premium on the AMOLED display here. The Galaxy M10 and M20 both included an Infinity-V display that allowed for reduced bezels and a dewdrop notch. It remains to be seen if the A series devices will sport a notch.

It appears that the phones will have a diminished focus on battery life compared to the Galaxy M20. The A series devices are believed to top off at 4,000mAh, while the Galaxy M20 offers a 5,000mAh battery.

Some preliminary specs leaked via Geekbench suggest that all three phones will be powered by an Exynos 7885 chipset. The RAM will, of course, vary across devices with the A10 featuring 2GB on the base variant while the A30 will sport 4GB at the top end. More interesting, however, is the news that the phones will have Samsung’s new One UI right out of the box.
