The Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s that were spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance previously have now appeared on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) certification list today. The model numbers are the same as spotted earlier – SM-A307FN/DS and SM-A507FN/DS – for the A30s and A50s respectively. Now, the appearance finally confirms the retail names of the A series duo while earlier were just speculation.
The A30S with model number SM-A307FN also appeared on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the other model pop-up as well.
Samsung has been launching these “s” variants of the A series in the US for some time and these are mostly iterative upgrades and not a complete refresh of the series. Coming to the Galaxy A50s, earlier appearances on Geekbench and AnTuTu have revealed quite a bit about it. If that’s any indication, the Galaxy A50s at least will boast an Exynos 9610 SoC built on the 10nm process paired with 4GB RAM. It has a Full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) display and carries 64GB of onboard storage. Also, there’s Android 9.0 Pie as well. The Galaxy A50s should also have marginally improved cameras although the composition might not change at all.
The Galaxy A30s, on the other hand, has also been spotted on Geekbench and according to reports, it could feature an Exynos 7885 octa-core SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A triple camera is believed to be on the rear of the device and an Infinity-V display should grace the front of the screen. We also know that the Galaxy A30s will be available in Black, White, and Lavender color options courtesy of our own exclusive report.
All these certifications hint that the two devices will be announced very soon in the US. Samsung also has the new Galaxy A series in the pipeline with the A31, A51 monikers but we don’t expect those new phones to show up until the end of this year.
