Samsung changed its mid-range business with the Galaxy A and M-series smartphones. However, the company gave a step further to democratize “good specifications” with the Galaxy A0 series. The smartphones coming under this lineup are focused in the super-budget segment and come for less-exigent users. With each new generation, they are getting better and the newly launched Galaxy A03s is the latest proof of this.
Samsung has just released the Galaxy A03s in India and it’s better than its predecessors. The device comes with a large 6.5-inch TFT display offering HD+ resolution and is powered by an Octa-Core chipset, has p to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of Internal Storage. Of course, the package is complete by a huge battery. Without further ado, let’s take a look ahead with detailed specifications, pricing, and availability info of the Galaxy A03s.
Samsung Galaxy A03s specifications
The Samsung Galaxy A03s handset is an entry-level smartphone from Samsung. It comes with an Infinity-V display which is Samsung’s fancy name for waterdrop notch design. The device flaunts a 6.5-inch PLS TFT LCD screen that offers HD+ resolution with 1,600 x 720 pixels. Under the hood, the new entry-level smartphone boasts the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC. This is an old chipset based on the ARM Cortex-A53 cores, but for non-exigent users, it can get the job done. The device is paired with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM with 32 GB or 64 GB of storage, respectively. Of course, it supports micro SD cards for further memory expansion.
The Samsung Galaxy A03s features a triple-camera setup consisting of a 13 MP primary camera. This primary snapper comes alongside a pair of 2 MP modules for depth sensing and macro shots. For selfies and video calls, there is a modest 5 MP camera. The device also comes with a fingerprint scanner which is a nice add-on in this pricing point. The scanner doubles as a power button in the right side.
In terms of connectivity, the device packs dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 5, GPS, Bluetooth 5, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port. The lights are kept by a 5,000 mAh battery. There’s no mention of fast charging, therefore, we assume it has only 10W charging. The device runs Android 11 straight out of the box with One UI 3.1 Core running on top. Dimensions-wise the A03s measure 164.2mmx75.9mmx 9.1mm and weighs 190 grams.
