Samsung has finally taken the wraps off of its performance-driven A-series smartphones, the A50s, and A30s. Featuring a new contemporary look, these smartphones are optimized for generation Z who like to “capture and share their experiences instantaneously”.
Both feature a versatile camera, an Infinity-U display, and long-lasting batteries. As the name suggests, both devices are upgrades over the Galaxy A30 and A50.
Samsung Galaxy A50s
Launched with a striking new design and a great camera, the Samsung Galaxy A50s has slightly lower specifications compared to its predecessor.
Design and Display
The new A50s comes with a redesigned rear panel which features a holographic design and a unique geometric pattern.
The smartphone is available in four colors namely: Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Violet, and Prism Crush Green. The triple sensor rear camera is vertically aligned on the top left and the fingerprint sensor is mounted inside the display.
Display-wise, the smartphone borrows almost everything from its predecessor. It features a 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2340 pixels) resolution Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with 403 ppi pixel density and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection.
Internals and Storage
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy A50s uses an Octa-core Exynos 9610 (10 nm) chipset in combination with 4 GB or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB built-in storage. The storage is expandable by up to 512 GB via a dedicated SD card slot.
On the software front, the smartphone will run on Android 9.0 Pie topped with One UI.
Samsung has mainly focused on improving the cameras with these phones. The A50s comes with a powerful triple sensor rear camera featuring a 48 MP main sensor, followed by an 8 MP ultra-wide lens with 123-degree FOV and a 5 MP depth sensor same as the previously launched A50.
The selfie camera, on the other hand, has been upgraded from 25 MP to 32 MP.
