MWC 2019: Samsung Introduces New A50 and A30 Mid-Range Smartphones
Only a few days after the presentation of the new high-end smartphones of the Galaxy S10 model series and the foldable Galaxy Fold, the South Korean company presented the new middle-class smartphones Galaxy A50 and A30 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The Galaxy A50 clearly has borrowings from the company’s high-end devices, such as the in-display fingerprint scanner that Samsung installed under the 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED screen. The resolution is 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, the frame is pleasantly slim, which was made possible by a small waterdrop notch in which the front camera has a resolution of 25 megapixels. On the back there is a triple camera whose main sensor offers 25 megapixel resolution, in addition there is an 8 megapixel sensor with ultra-wide angle lens and a 5 megapixel sensor for depth detection.
The Exynos 9610 Octacore is probably used as the processor, but this has not yet been confirmed. Of the two versions with either 4 GB or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB internal memory, only the combination of 4 GB RAM and 128 GB memory probably appears in Germany.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 is available in black, white, blue and coral. The price of the smartphone and the release date are not yet known.
At first sight the Galaxy A30 resembles its big brother clearly. The display is exactly the same, but the in-display fingerprint sensor has been omitted and is instead located on the back of the smartphone. The camera equipment was also reduced. The front camera offers a resolution of only 16 megapixels instead of 25 megapixels, and instead of a triple cam, Samsung only uses a dual cam in this model, in which the ultra-wide angle lens is missing.
The other components are also much slower. The processor used is an Exynos 7904 Octacore with 3 GB or 4 GB RAM. The internal memory is 32 GB or 64 GB.
It is uncertain whether the Galaxy A30, which is available in black, white, blue and red, will also be launched in Germany. Samsung may also only offer the inexpensive entry-level device in emerging and developing countries such as India.
