Samsung Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30 Launched with 6.4-inch Infinity-U Display, 4,000mAh Fast Charging Battery


Samsung is all and out to claim the mid-range segment by either bringing out new series and overhauling existing ones. The South Korean giant recently launched the Galaxy-M series in India that has already seen quite a success in the budget segment. Now, the company has launched two new phones in its Galaxy A-series – the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy A30 – at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona. These are new-gen Galaxy A series smartphones, both featuring Infinity-U displays with waterdrop notch. While the Galaxy A50 has an optical In-display fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy A30 settles for a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Except for the same display type, “3D Glasstic” design, both the Galaxy A50 and A30 differ in terms of hardware specs.

The Samsung Galaxy A50 With In-display Fingerprint Sensor, Triple Rear Cameras


The Samsung Galaxy A50 comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen bearing 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution and19.5:9 aspect ratio. An Exynos 9610 processor powers the smartphone with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage. Similar to the Galaxy A7, the Galaxy A50 also has a 25MP+5MP+8MP triple rear camera setup integrated with an “intelligent switch” feature that enables it to recognize and suggest the use of Wide Shot mode. There is also a Scene Optimizer feature to identify and optimize up to 20 scenes. It is also integrated with Bixby Vision that is Samsung’s take on Google Lens.

A 4,000mAh battery backs the smartphone with 15W fast charging. It has an In-display fingerprint sensor that is inferior to the one on recently launched flagship Galaxy S10. Another biometric option on the A50 is the software-backed Face Unlock feature.

Samsung takes on Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 and 660 chipsets with its Exynos 7904 and 9610 chipsets. Samsung is yet to pit an Exynos chipset against Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 675 chipset.

Samsung Galaxy A30 With Exynos 7904 SoC


The Galaxy A30 is an undertoned version of the Galaxy A50. It has a 6.4-inch; FHD+ Super AMOLED with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. An Exynos 7904 SoC powers it that is quite underpowered in from of the Exynos 9610 on the Galaxy A50. The Galaxy A30 has 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB storage. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Concerning optics, the phone has a 16MP front-facing camera and 16MP+5MP dual rear cameras. A 4,000mAh battery backs it with 15W Fast Charging and USB Type-C connectivity.

Additional features on the Galaxy A30 include Samsung Pay, Bixby Home, and Bixby Reminder, which are also available on the Galaxy A50. As of now, Samsung has not revealed the software details for both the phones.

Samsung is expected to launch both the phones in India soon. For now, the company has not revealed the exact timeline. We can also expect Samsung to launch these two phones in the global markets. As for the pricing, Samsung will most likely keep them under the mid-range segment, i.e. under 20K for Galaxy A50 and under 15K for the Galaxy A30. It is also expected to launch another phone in the series, the Galaxy A10. We will soon get to know about it as Samsung makes it official.
