Recently, when Samsung launched their A series smartphones, they aimed to regain lost ground in the Indian market. These phones were affordable, well performing and on the whole, gave consumers a good value for money. Now, Samsung has revamped the two of the best selling phones from the series and have launched the Galaxy A50s and the Galaxy A30s. These phones should directly compete with Redmi note series phones and the latest Realme phones.

These updates from Samsung are rather incremental in that they bring something new to the table and actually improve on the shortcomings of the A50 and A30.

Both the phones, Samsung has completely redesigned the back of the phones, to give them a more modern look and to separate them from their competitors in the same price range.


The backs of the phone now have geometric patterns, which shine different sorts of lights depending on how you look at them. This is more prominent on the A50s, which is the more superior phone of the two.

On the A30s too, you can still see the light bouncing off to give different patterns, but it isn't as pronounced as the one on the A50s. Another new feature on the Galaxy A30s is the new in-display fingerprint scanner. Previously, the A30 had a rear mounted capacitive sensor, which has now been replaced.

The other major change to the phones comes in the camera department. The cameras on the phones were mediocre to say the least, but now, they should be able to give tough competition to other phones with better cameras in the same price range.


The new A50s bumps up the specs in the camera. The new added camera is a 48-megapixel camera which pairs up with the existing 5-megapixel depth sensor and the 123 degree wide angle camera.

As for the A30s, it adds a new camera at the back- housing a total of three cameras as opposed to the existing two. The added camera sensor is a 25-megapixel primary sensor, which will use the 8-megapixel sensor to enhance pictures and provide better results.

Surprisingly, Samsung has downgraded the resolution of the phone, bringing it down from 1080 pixels to just 720 pixels. This could probably have been done to keep the price range the same. Adding a new camera would mean more expense but now that they've reduced the screen resolution, the price could remain the same as before.

As of now, Samsung has not announced the prices or release date of either of these phones.
