Samsung’s A Series devices lean more towards the mid-range tier offering some good specs and an affordable price but the series isn’t really all that big stateside. Sure, Sprint and AT&T offer the Galaxy A6 device but that phone came out last year, so there hasn’t really been anything new in the budget range from Samsung lately. After Samsung announced the Galaxy A series was coming to Canada, the company is announcing that the Galaxy A50 will be heading to the U.S. as well.
“Everyone has a unique set of needs when it comes to their smartphone and, more than ever, people are looking for a device that’s designed for the way they live. Drawing on more than 10 years of Galaxy smartphone innovation, the new Galaxy A Series offers consumers premium essentials at a great value. And with a full portfolio of products, there’s an A Series that’s right for anyone.”Travis Warren, senior vice president of carrier sales and operations at Samsung Electronics America
The Galaxy A50 has some pretty decent specifications coupled with a premium build. Starting off with the screen size, you’re looking at 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U Display with a resolution of 1080×2340. It’s running a Quad-core 2.3GHz + Quad-core 1.7GHZ SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB, and a 4,000mAh battery. As for the camera, you’re looking at a triple set up on the back. 25MP (F1.7) main lens, a 5MP (F2.2) Depth lens, and an 8MP (F2.2) Ultra Wide lens. The front-facing camera will be a whopping 25MP with F2.0.
Other features include an On-Display fingerprint scanner, fast charging, Samsung Pay, and Bixby.
The phone will be available starting June 13th with a price tag of US$349.99. Sure, this will save people some cash so they don’t have to spend it all on a $700-1000 device, plus it’ll give the company more exposure with this mid-tier series.
