Samsung Launches Its Most Affordable A-Series Phone to Date

In the month that has passed since the Samsung Galaxy A04 series was first launched, the series has largely expanded. As we already have the Galaxy A04s and A04 Core in our arsenal, now we are also getting a brand new model positioned as the Galaxy A04e, which may turn out to be one of the cheapest phones in the lineup.

It has quietly been revealed that Samsung is rolling out the Galaxy A04e in a few markets, along with the base Galaxy A04, but it has a downgraded camera and a reduced amount of RAM as compared to the base Galaxy A04. The screen is the exact same size as its predecessor in terms of resolution and brightness, but it lacks 90Hz refresh rate as found on the A04s due to its PLS LCD (not as good as IPS).

It is rumored that this brand new chipset will be the Helio G35, which has not been officially announced by Samsung. We suspect that this SoC is the same one as the one on the Galaxy A04 base model, as it has almost the same configuration, so we suspect it might be the same one. The models come with 3, 4 and 6 GB of RAM, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage (with a memory card slot onboard) with a storage capacity ranging from 32 to 4 GB.

In the main camera, the 50MP sensor has been reduced to 13MP, but the secondary 2MP sensor will remain the same, as will the 5MP selfie camera, while the 50MP camera has been decreased to 13MP. There is also no support for fast charging on the 5,000 mAh battery and the handset retains its single-slot design.

Neither the pricing nor the availability details have been revealed by Samsung as of yet. Our expectation is that the Galaxy A04 will cost around $100 instead of $150 like the standard version.
