Samsung has silently launched the Galaxy A04s without hosting any launch event. The new smartphone which comes to succeed last year’s A03s was first spotted in the Northern part of Europe.
Even though it is a quite capable smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A04s is still an entry level smartphone. It comes with the latest Android 12 with the older version of Samsung’s skin, One UI 4.1 on it. However, Samsung was mute on the chipset they used in this new entry level smartphone.
However, according to sources we can highly confirm that the new smartphone is going to come with Exynos 850 chipset. Rocking an 8 core Cortex-A55, the Galaxy A04s is a sure upgrade performer over last year’s A03s.
Also, comparing the Galaxy A04 to the A04s, the A04 was based on a 28nm Unisoc chip while the A04s runs on an 8nm chip. This massive upgrade over the A04 and the A03s means that the Galaxy A04s will perform better in all areas than the previous editions.
There are three different storage options to choose from as well. You have the option to choose the 32GB version, 64GB version or the 128GB version. In case you need more storage than the 128GB, you have nothing to worry about. The external SD card support makes it easier for you to extend the storage. You can also get to choose either the 3GB RAM or the 4GB RAM version depending on how much of a heavy user you are.
