A new Samsung Galaxy A series smartphone with the model numbers SM-A015F and SM-A015F/DS has been certified by the Federal Communications Commission. The former model number is for the single SIM variant of the device, while the latter is for the one with dual-SIM slots. The reports suggest that this phone could go official as the Samsung Galaxy A01 or Galaxy A5 (2019). The same device was also spotted in the database of the benchmarking app Geekbench under the same model number. In Geekbench’s listing, the device was mentioned as a Qualcomm reference phone, which suggested that the handset may not be released commercially. However, the FCC certification indicates that the device could be launched in the near future.
The FCC listing has revealed a couple of images as well as features of the purported Samsung Galaxy A01 or Galaxy A5. The photos suggest that the phone will come with a dual primary camera setup at the rear, which will be placed on the top-left corner. The two lenses will be accompanied by an LED flash unit. The handset’s power button and volume rocker seem to be placed on the right side. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone socket on the top edge and the charging port is placed at the bottom. The FCC certification has also suggested that the Galaxy A01 or Galaxy A5 will be fuelled by a 3,000mAh battery.
As for the other specs, the Geekbench listing of the alleged Samsung Galaxy A01 or Galaxy A5 suggested that the phone will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm processor. The chipset will offer a clock speed of 2.02GHz, and it will be paired with 2GB of RAM. The benchmark also indicated that the Galaxy A01 or A5 will be among the first phones from the South Korean tech giant to boot Android 10 out of the box. The device is rumoured to offer a 5.7-inch display and 16GB of storage.
Other details about the Samsung Galaxy A01 or A5’s specifications are not available at the moment. We will inform you more on the matter as soon as the brand officially announces anything, so stay tuned for further updates.
