Unlocked Samsung Galaxy A50 goes up for pre-order on Amazon with free Galaxy Fit
Following an international announcement all the way back in February, a US debut on Verizon several months later, and a rapid expansion to carriers like Sprint and Xfinity Mobile, the mid-range Galaxy A50 finally went up for pre-order last week in an unlocked variant stateside

Curiously enough, Samsung still doesn't carry this particular model itself, while Amazon also needed a few days to follow Best Buy's suit. But now the aggressively priced 6.4-incher is available with both GSM and CDMA support from the e-commerce giant as well, and as promised, you can pre-order the handset alongside a free Galaxy Fit.

Formally unveiled at roughly the same time as the A50, the entry-level wearable device started selling in the US in June at a reasonable price of $99. You can now save that 99 bucks with the early purchase of a Galaxy A50 unlocked for use on all of America's biggest carriers. 
The Galaxy Fit is capable of automatically tracking your activity, from daily steps to runs and calories burned, as well as monitor your sleep and yes, even your heart rate, all while sporting a (tiny) full color AMOLED display, keeping the lights on for up to a week between charges, and weighing a measly 23 grams.

As for the phone itself, we should probably mention it was recently named the third best-selling model in the world during the year's first six months, as well as one of Samsung's key growth drivers in the April - June timeframe

There's a good reason why the Galaxy A50 has proven so insanely popular internationally, of course, offering amazing bang for your buck with a Super AMOLED Infinity-U display in tow, as well as a triple 25 + 8 + 5MP lens system on its back, a single 25MP selfie shooter, in-screen fingerprint recognition, Exynos 9610 processing power, 4GB RAM, and a hefty 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support.
