UPDATE: Samsung later sent us a press release stating that the availability date for the Galaxy A20 has been changed. In contrast to the earlier presented information, the Samsung Galaxy A20 will go on sale starting April 8, 2019.
Samsung is on a launch spree in India. The South Korean giant has been quite active in the mid-range scene and has launched several devices in a span of a few weeks. In the latest move, Samsung has launched the Galaxy A20 smartphone in India. The device is yet another addition to the Galaxy-A series by Samsung. It joins the recently launched Galaxy A50, Galaxy A30, and others. Interestingly, India is the second market to get the Galaxy A20 after it debuted in Russia, last month. This new phone from Samsung will be rivaling Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 and Realme U1 in India.
Samsung Galaxy A20 Price in India, Availability
The Samsung Galaxy A20 price in India is INR 12,490 for a single variant consisting 3GB RAM+32GB Storage. The phone will be available in Black, Blue, and Red color options. The Galaxy A20 will go on sale starting April 10 through Samsung Online Shop, Samsung Opera House, and major offline stores across India. As of now, Samsung has not announced any launch offers for the Galaxy A20. We can expect an offer to show up when it finally goes on sale next week.
Samsung Galaxy A20 With Super AMOLED Screen, Exynos 7884 SoC, Dual Rear Cameras
The Samsung Galaxy A20 comes with a 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display at 720×1560 pixels resolution paired with waterdrop notch conforming to Infinity-V Display design by Samsung. The phone boasts “3D Glasstic” build, which consists of a plastic frame clubbed with Glass rear panel.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A20 is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7884 chipset clocked at 1.35GHz. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded up to 512GB via microSD card. On the software front, the phone ships with Android 9 Pie-based OneUI. For optics, the Galaxy A20 sports a 13MP+5MP dual camera setup on the rear with f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front with f/2.0 aperture. A 4,000mAh battery backs the Galaxy A20 with fast charging and USB Type-C support. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
As we mentioned in the beginning, Samsung is taking the competition seriously and is aiming to counter Redmi Note 7 (review) and Realme U1 smartphones by launching the Galaxy A20. The phone could take up a serious fight with the Realme U1, but the Redmi Note 7 performs beyond with a better chipset and front camera. The 3GB RAM+32GB Storage variant of the Redmi Note 7 is priced at INR 9,999 while its top-end variant with 6GB RAM+64GB Storage is priced at INR 11,999 (lower than the Galaxy A20). The choice is evident here; one can get the top-end variant of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 at a lesser price than the Samsung Galaxy A20.
