Entry-level Samsung Galaxy A01 headed to the US
Back in December, Samsung announced both the Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51. The A series of smartphones from Samsung tend to be more budget-oriented, with a feature or two which aims to help them stand out against the competition. Shortly after both of those aforementioned devices were announced, the company quietly revealed another addition to the A series – the Samsung Galaxy A01. It wasn’t really announced, per se, as the device’s product page showed up on Samsung’s site without any fanfare. Now it seems that the Samsung Galaxy A01 is headed to the US, after stopping by the FCC.
The Samsung Galaxy A01 has two model variants that passed through the FCC – the A015V, and the A015T1. The A015V appears to be a Verizon exclusive (as denoted by the V), while the A015T1 appears to be launching through Metro by T-Mobile, T-Mobile’s prepaid brand (as denoted by the T1). Both models are more or less the same at a hardware level, being powered by an unnamed octa-core processor and packing 2GB of RAM. Alongside that, you also get 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 3,000 mAh battery and a 5.7-inch 720p Infinity-V display. It also runs Android 10 with OneUI 2.0 out of the box.
As for the Samsung Galaxy A01’s potential release date, with it passing through the FCC it can’t be too far off. The company is already gearing up for an insanely busy Galaxy Unpacked, with the S20 series and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip set to be announced.
