We've been seeing a lot of leaks of the Samsung Galaxy A30s and the Galaxy A50s over the past few months, and now, Samsung has officially unveiled the two smartphones. The new phones sound like refreshes of the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy A30, but that's not the case. They do feature upgraded cameras and other new features. Samsung Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s will be released in four colours — Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green, and Prism Crush Violet.
Samsung Galaxy A50s, Galaxy A30s price, availability
Samsung has only announced the phones, so we still don't have any details about the pricing and availability. The Samsung Galaxy A50s could be priced a bit higher compared to the Galaxy A50 (Review), considering it has a higher resolution primary camera. The Samsung Galaxy A30s, on the other hand, gets a lower screen resolution compared to the Galaxy A30 (Review), which means it could be priced below it. For now, we're yet to hear from Samsung India when these phones will reach the country.
Samsung Galaxy A50s specifications
The Galaxy A50s features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Super AMOLED Infinity U display. It's powered by an octa-core SoC, although Samsung hasn't specified the exact model, and the phone will be available with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, along with 64GB or 128GB of storage. The phone also supports microSD cards of up to 512GB. Coming to the cameras, the Galaxy A50s gets a big upgrade for the rear camera setup. The primary sensor now has a 48-megapixel resolution with an f/2.0 aperture, along with a 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 123-degree field of view and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The phone has a 32-megapixel selfie camera, which has a f/2.0 aperture. The
Galaxy A50s has a Super Steady video stabilisation feature that we saw in the Galaxy S10 series, but this works only at full-HD resolution and with the wide-angle camera. The Galaxy A50s also houses a 4,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging. The device measures 158.5 x 74.5 x 7.7mm and weighs 169 grams.
