Hardware and Software
Samsung’s Galaxy A10s is powered by a mediaTek Helio P22 (MT6762) chipset with two quad-core processors clocked at 2.0 GHz and 1.5GHz respectively.

The A10s also features sensors for proximity, light, fingerprint, and accelerometer.

The dual-LED flash at the rear of the Camera also provides enough illumination when you want to take pictures in dark environments.
The Samsung Galaxy A10S comes out of the box with a non-removable Li-Po 4,000 mAh battery.
