At the very bottom of the Samsung Galaxy range of budget smartphones is the Galaxy A10, with only one camera and all the trappings of an inexpensive device, but Samsung has already introduced a "Pro" version in the form of the Samsung Galaxy A10s.
Boasting about Samsung in a post on its editorial board, the Galaxy A10s builds on many of the Galaxy A10's base specs, and actually seems incredibly similar to the Galaxy A20, which has also seen letter variants including the A20e.

The Samsung Galaxy A10 has only one rear camera - it's the only phone in the current series to do so. Although the Galaxy A10s adds depth to the A2's 13-megapixel 10MP main camera, which should be useful for taking portraits to add background blur.
Another powerful upgrade is the battery capacity, which sits at 4000 mAh in the Galaxy A10s as opposed to 3,400 mAh in the A10, so you get a lot more power that should see you through hours.
One new addition to the phone is a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, which the mainstream A10 doesn't have. What should be done is turn on the phone, which is much easier.
The rest of the A10s specs are almost identical to the A10 - there's a 6.2-inch display, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and an 8MP front camera (up from 5MP on the A10). The device is slightly larger and its chin is slightly thicker than on the A10, but otherwise the design is the same.
At the moment we don't have any word on a release date or pricing information, so we've asked Samsung if it can provide us with any additional information and will update this article when we hear back.
The 2019 Galaxy series is quickly getting very cluttered - the A10 previously sat in a super-low-budget niche, having only one camera and no fingerprint scanner, but the A10s is very similar to the A20, which in turn isn't significantly different from the A30 and even the A50. with each step up, representing a small specification update here and there.
With the advent of lettered options for each model, it can soon become quite confusing when trying to figure out which Galaxy phone is the best for you.
