Just in case we didn’t have enough phone and Android news today, Samsung just launched four new devices in its A Series.
And they’re all coming to Australia.
Overnight Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A80 - the first of its phones to have the 'New Infinity' display that it announced and its Developer's Conference back in November. It has gotten around the notchless design by including a pop-up triple camera setup that also casually rotates.Read more
The hero of the bunch is the A70, which has the biggest screen of the A series thus far, with a 6.7-inch Infinity-U display.
It also has a 32MP main, 5MP depth and 8MP ultra-wide rear camera setup, with a 32MP selfie cam to boot.
Under the hood there’s a Snapdragon 675 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
The Galaxy A70 will be available sometime in June and will have an RRP of $649.
Next up we have the Galaxy A50 with a slightly smaller 6.4-inch Infinity-U display.
We’re still looking at a triple camera setup, with 25MP main, 5MP depth and 8MP ultra-wide. It also has a 25MP front-facing lens.
The specs are also a little more modest, with an Exynos 9610 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and a 4,000mAH battery with 15W fast-charging.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 is $499 and available now.
You can also get it on a plan through Optus, but it’s difficult to recommend this option due to the 24-month plans. These can leave buyers largely out of pocket compared to buying outright and choosing a SIM-only plan instead.
But, we also know that not everyone can afford to spend $500 on a device upfront, so if you’re interested here they are:
Lastly we have the Galaxy A30 and A20, which only have a $100 price difference between them and quite similar specs.
Both devices sports a 6.4-inch Infinity-U display, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast-charging.
The main differences are the processors (Exynos 7885 vs Exynos 7884) and the cameras.
The A30 offers a 16MP main and 5MP ultra-wide rear lenses as well as a 16MP front-facing camera, whereas the A20 drops down to 13MP for the main and front-facing lenses.
