Samsung has a new phone in town, the Galaxy A04s, though it hasn’t been officially announced. The Samsung galaxy A04s is a successor to Last year’s galaxy A03s. The Galaxy A04s improves on it’s predecessor a lot as the A03s had to compromise performance in order to improve on photography and overall design.
The Galaxy A04s comes with a redesign which is more noticeable around the camera island. Actually, there is no island for those cameras, they are individual lenses which are arranged in a vertical pattern, something like the S22 ultra’s cameras. The colours we’ve seen on the net are Green, copper brown, White and Black.
The display of the Galaxy A04 is a 6.5″ PLS LCD display which still has a 720p resolution as always, but a higher 90Hz refresh rate. the 5MP selfie camera is still housed in the “infinity-V” notch.
Samsung didn’t say which chipset this device carries, but GSMarena believes that it is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 850, An Octa-core processor having eight Cortex-A55 cores. It’s quite faster and better the Mediatek Helio P35 chip that powered its predecessor. Its even more powerful than its sibling, the Galaxy A04.
The chip is aided by 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB of internal storage space which is expandable up to 1TB with a MicroSD card. Speaking of things Samsung flagships don’t have, the Galaxy A04s also has a 3.5mm audio jack which has a Dolby Atmos support.
The Rear camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy A04s consists of a 50MP main sensor, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. cameras will be able to capture 1080p video at 30fps.
The 5,000 mAh battery on this device is quite a big one, suitable for an average user’s day-to-day activities without bothering to plug it in again until the next day. One feature I really like seeing on modern smartphone is the side mounted fingerprint, rear-mounted ones are so last year(though some manufacturers still do it).
The price tag on the Samsung Galaxy A04s is about $180 to $200 making it ₦120,000 to ₦140,000 in Nigeria.
