The new Samsung A10s is already available in Kenya. It starts at KES. 12,889 which is about KES. 1000 more compared to the original Galaxy A10 that launched back in April of this year.
It is however a really welcome upgrade, and competes directly with every offering from TECNO, Infinix and Huawei in the same price range.
The new phone’s improvements are highlighted in bold.
