Samsung's well spec'd Galaxy A50 mid-ranger hits Verizon on June 13th
As far back as April, we had heard that a trio of Samsung's new Galaxy A mid-rangers would be heading to the states. And a recent update to the Samsung Pay app "confirmed" that the Galaxy A50 was coming to the U.S. Today, Samsung announced that the latter model will be accompanied by the Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A10e. This is a little different than the original rumor, which called for the Galaxy A20, Galaxy A50, and Galaxy A70 to touch down in the states.
The Galaxy A10e was recently certified by the FCC with the model number SM-A102U. The phone is equipped with a 5.83-inch Infinity-V display (meaning that it has a V-shaped notch on the display for the front-facing camera) and a resolution of 720 x 1520( HD+). The device comes with 2GB of memory and 32GB of storage. There is a 13MP camera in the back and a 5MP selfie snapper in front. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery and Android 9 Pie is pre-installed. The Galaxy A10e is expected to be available in a few weeks priced at $179.99.
The Galaxy A20 features a 6.4-inch Infinity-V Super AMOLED display with a 720 x 1520 HD+ resolution. This model has 3GB of memory and 32GB of storage. There is a dual camera setup in the back (13MP + 5MP) along with an 8MP front-facing camera. It also sports a 4000mAh battery. Like the Galaxy A10e, it will be sold in the U.S. in a matter of weeks priced at $249.99 with Android 9 Pie pre-installed.
Perhaps the most interesting of the trio is the Galaxy A50, which will be available from Verizon starting on June 13th for $349.99. The 6.4-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED display has a higher 1080 x 2340 resolution (FHD+). The device comes with 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage; A 512GB capacity microSD slot is available for those who need additional storage.
The Samsung Galaxy A line has sold impressively well with over $1 billion in sales
The Galaxy A50 has an in-display fingerprint scanner and a triple camera setup on the back. The latter features a 25MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 123-degree field of view, and a 5MP depth sensor. The AI-based Scene Optimizer feature can recognize 20 specific scenes and makes the appropriate adjustments to the camera settings automatically. The depth sensor will help users snap great portraits with the bokeh "blur" effect. And the front-facing selfie snapper weighs in at 25MP. This model also supports Samsung Pay, Bixby and more. Android 9 Pie is pre-installed.
Samsung created the Galaxy A line to replace the Galaxy J range. The new mid-rangers were designed to have large, immersive screens, versatile cameras, and all-day batteries. In addition, all Galaxy A models are released with Samsung's new One UI interface that has most actionable options on the bottom of the screen. This is done so that users don't have to dislocate their fingers trying to tap a button at the top of a large screen.
The Samsung Galaxy A series ranges from the Galaxy A10e to the Galaxy A80. Since its release back in March, the line has sold impressively well. After the first 70 days, Samsung had sold over 5 million of these handsets generating over $1 billion in revenue.
