Samsung Galaxy A10e visits Geekbench with Exynos chipset, 2GB of RAM
Samsung has gone all in with the suffix "e" this year. The Galaxy S10e is the most affordable S10, the Galaxy A20e is a cheaper version of the A20, you get the idea. The Korean company has also been working on a Galaxy A10e, which has already been certified by both the Wi-Fi Alliance and the FCC. This indicates the fact that the phone, with the model number SM-A102U, could be launching very soon.
To test things thoroughly before that release, someone in possession of a prototype saw fit to run Geekbench on it, and thus the results are now part of the benchmark's online database. This reveals scores that are in line with the Galaxy A10's - 1,163 single-core, 3,581 multi-core.
The system information tab in the Geekbench listing says the Galaxy A10e has the Exynos 7885 chipset at the helm, but this is contradicted both by the phone's results as well as its CPU's base clock of 1.35 GHz. This is exactly what the slower cores are clocked at in the Exynos 7884, which coincidentally is the SoC employed by the Galaxy A10.
So with that in mind, we assume the A10e will have the Exynos 7884 on board too, and not the beefier Exynos 7885 - after all, it wouldn't make sense for an "e" to best the non-"e" model, would it?
The Galaxy A10e has 2GB of RAM, also exactly like the A10, which makes us wonder what the actual differences will be between these two models, and how Samsung's reached the lower price for the "e" iteration. Perhaps it will just be a smaller screen and battery, that remains to be seen. Like the A10, the A10e runs Android 9 Pie.
And 3000 battery not bad really, why bother with A40?.

Rubbish 2gb runs fine if you don't have 10 apps open . Used 2gb for years I'd rather more storage
