Samsung to bring three Galaxy A series phones to the US

Samsung to bring three Galaxy A series phones to the US
Samsung is expected to bring three Galaxy A series phones to the United States: Galaxy A20, A50 and A70. These are part of the new wave of smartphones announced this year by the South Korean company and will be offered in the US through various carriers.

The folks at XDA-Developers have found evidence that all four US carriers – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, will sell at least one of the Galaxy A series phones mentioned earlier. Samsung recently confirmed it will no longer launch Galaxy J phones to avoid confusion among customers.

Although they share many things in common such as large Super AMOLED displays and massive batteries, the Galaxy A20, A50 and A70 are quite different in the grand scheme of things. For example, the A20, which will also be the cheapest of the three, packs a dual rear camera, whereas the other two phones come with triple cameras on the back.

Also, the amount of memory each of these Galaxy A series phones pack inside is exponentially higher: Galaxy A20 (3GB RAM, 32GB storage), Galaxy A50 (4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage), Galaxy A70 (6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB storage).

We don't know yet when exactly Samsung will launch these phones in the United States, but we can guess how much they'll cost: $200, $350 and $400. Of course, Samsung may actually lower the US prices to make them more appealing, we can't tell for sure at the moment, so take these prices with a grain of salt.

Really? Uhhh oh! This could be a really big deal. If Samsung brings them here and prices them below $650, these models will most certainly steal away sells from OEM's who are basically hanging on by a thread like Moto, Sony and LG to name the biggest ones. Then struggling big OEM's like Apple who already are seeing drops in premium headsets, including Samsung themselves; this could be a turn-around for them, especially since Chinese OEM's are being blocked from selling their hardware in the US. They really should bring the A80 with its rotating camera here. That phone is dope. They should really bring that to the Note 10 too, with a 4K display, 256GB of minimum storage capacity and more. This could be a very smart move.

None of the things you're hoping for in the Note 10 will happen, but dreams are nice.

But how do you know? Do you work for Samsung and have some inside knowledge? lol /s Please give us your secrets. /s Well i'm personally a bit disappointed in Samsung about a few things with their latest phones. Samsung already showed, they have already made completely bezeless phones that are all screen with no notch or punch-hole. But instead of doing it to their more expensive flagship device, they made those things happen on a less product to give it attention. I know the Note likely won't have a camera like that. But it does show the Note could have a complete screen on the front with an alternative method that seems to work very well; that would hide the camera from view until it is needed. It shows they did not have to compromise any part of the screen. Yes the punch-hole takes up less space than a notch, and yes its less of an eye-sore; but it is still a needless obstruction when they have already shown they have the capability to do a full screen device with no obstruction. The S10 being the 10th model which they made a big deal of, should have had the best they could offer and even though they did very well, it could have been better. They should have kept bezels, until they were ready for the full screen experience.

below $650? The A70 would clearly be an alternative to the Pixel 3a XL at $450.

A60 looks the best

If the A70 comes to Verizon with a compelling price, that might just be my next phone. Are there any current A70 users out there that can share their experience with the phone?

I am really hoping for an A70 drop in the US. I personally am not too fond of the A80 because of the rotating camera, but I am not much of a picture taker myself.

PRAISE (insert fictional diety of choice)!!! Man, the A70 is exactly the phone I want. 128GB base with expansion, a headphone jack, massive battery. Oh boy, I'll live with it even if the camera is mediocre. Now price it at $450 and destroy the Pixel 3a XL.

If the A70 is $399 I will buy one for my wife and one for myself. Make it happen Samsung so you can take my money.

I want the A80!

Me too. In fact, I'm just gonna order it directly from Samsung. I don't need it because I have the Note 9. But I just want it simply because its so cool looking. I've bought phones before simply because they looked cool, and have been disappointed. But they are never hard to resale or return. But I would love this phone. and their ad for it is really cool. It gives it that cool factor that I like.

Since these are very cheap priced phones that are premium in style, I expect these will likely appear on carriers like Cricket, MetroPCS and similar cheap carriers like Boost. Then the major carriers can have the better models like the A70 and A80. At $450 ta phone that nice will sell very well and surely give Samsung some breathing room against Huawei who even without the US market is catching up fast. This could be a really good move for them.
