Samsung's new Galaxy A lineup (A50, A30, and A10) leaks in full

Samsung's new Galaxy A lineup (A50, A30, and A10) leaks in full
Samsung's first major announcement for this year is scheduled for February 20, when the South Korean company is expected to introduce the Galaxy S10 flagship and, maybe, its first foldable smartphone.

While all eyes are focused on Samsung's Unpacked event, there are a couple of other smartphones that might have gone unnoticed – the Galaxy A series (2019). Unlike Samsung's newly unveiled M series, these phones are mid- to high-tier device that will fairly be more expensive and better specced.

The first three Galaxy A series phone Samsung plans to launch this year, the Galaxy A50, A30 and A10, will most likely go official not long after the Galaxy S10 hits the shelves, but as of right now, we don't have any information about availability.

What we do know is that these smartphones look very well on paper and if Samsung will price them competitively, they could become very popular among Android fans. Unfortunately, if history is any indication, they won't come cheap.

However, before we decide how much the Galaxy A series (2019) should cost, let's take a look at what they have to offer in terms of specs, courtesy to the folks at MySmartPrice. Judging by their names and looking at the specs sheets, the Galaxy A50 will be most powerful, while the Galaxy A10 should be the cheapest.

First off, the Galaxy A50 and A30 feature similar 6.4-inch Super AMOLED displays and 4,000 mAh batteries with fast charging technology. However, they come with different cameras and chipsets, but that's understandable considering they will be priced differently.

Four cameras on a phone was a failed experiment


It appears that Samsung dropped the idea to put four main cameras on a phone as it did with the Galaxy A9 (2018), so the Galaxy A50 will only pack three: 25MP+5MP+8MP. Also, the smartphone boasts a fairly big 25-megapixel front-facing camera and a powerful octa-core Exynos 9610 processor.

As far as the memory goes, the Galaxy A50 will be available in two variants – 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB, but both will feature microSD slot (up to 512GB). What's really interesting is that the Galaxy A50 will come with an on-screen fingerprint sensor, the best possible solution consumer-wise.

The mid-tier Galaxy A30 has the same display and battery, but only main cameras (16MP+5MP) and a slightly smaller 16-megapixel selfie camera. The phone is equipped with a less powerful octa-core Exynos 7904 chipset, coupled with either 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, or 4GB RAM and 64Gb storage.

Unlike the Galaxy A50, this one has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, but it's quite similar design-wise. As a matter of fact, the Galaxy A50 and A30 have the same size and we'll probably find out later on that they also have the same weight.

Finally, the Galaxy A10, the cheapest of the three upcoming phones, has a slightly smaller 6.2-inch HD+ display and a single 13-megapixel main camera, paired with a secondary 5-megapixel camera in the front. The 1.6GHz Exynos 7884B processor is coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory.

Just like the other two Galaxy A series phones, the A10 is powered by a generous 4,000 mAh battery sans fast charging, but there's no fingerprint sensor whatsoever.

One thing that all three smartphones have in common, besides the battery, is that they all feature dual-SIM support and will run Android 9 Pie right out of the box. Design-wise, it appears that all three will have glossy plastic bodies, so nothing really premium.

Although we do not yet know when exactly they will be available on the market and how much they'll cost, we do know they will be available in different colors. For example, the Galaxy A50 and A30 will be launched in Black, Blue and White, while the Galaxy A10 will only be available in either Black or Gold.

Disappointed with the regression to plastic bodies considering the previous a models possessed premium, flagship worthy glass builds. I wonder if the A series still has ip certification.

Why do you guys drool over glass so much? It’s so idotic since the only thing glass brings on these midrangers is a brittle chassis. If there was wireless charging then it would have been justified. Please, stop with this nonsense. Plastic is so much more durable than glass and costs less. Atleast ask for metal back if you really want that premium feel.... I do want IP certification though.

Disappointed with the sizes, they're all huge... If I'd want a tablet I'd buy one... next!
