Samsung to refresh its A-series with Galaxy A10, A30 and A50

Samsung recently launched its Galaxy M budget-friendly lineup. The launch of the S10 lineup is imminent during the MWC 2019 this month. According to a report by MySmartPrice, Samsung is also gearing up to revamp its Galaxy A-series smartphone. To commemorate their 10th year in the smartphone industry, they aim to release new phones following the '10' terminology. The report states that the Galaxy A50, A30 and A10 will be released shortly after the Galaxy S10. Here are all the variants, models and specifications.

Galaxy A50 specifications

The Galaxy A50 is the top end variant in the series. The phone will feature the Infinity U display. For the uninitiated, these are just different names for the waterdrop style notch that has picked up recently. The display itself will be a 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED display capable of vibrant and punchy colours. Apart from that, the phone will also have an in-display fingerprint sensor, setting it apart from the other two phones in the A series.

The A50 will have an Exynos 9610 processor in two configurations. Potential buyers will be able to choose between a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version.

Another feature to set it apart from the A30 and the A10 is that it will feature a triple rear camera set up. The set up will consist of a 25-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and an 8-megapixel fixed-focus ultra-wide camera with f/2.4 aperture. Up front, it will feature a 25-megapixel selfie camera. The phone will house a 4,000mAH battery and will support fast charging via USB-C

Galaxy A30 Specifications

The second tier phone in the lineup, the A30 will come with an Infinity U display. The phone will have the same size 6.4-inch SuperAMOLED display as the A50. As for the processor, the smartphone will sport an Exynos 7904 chipset to take care of multitasking needs.

Like the A50, this one will also come in two variants- a 3GB RAM, 32GB storage version and a 4GB RAM, 64GB storage model. Apart from these differences, the phone will be very much like the A50. In fact, it will even have the same ports and battery as the other phone.

Other differences lie in the camera department. The A30 will have the usual dual camera set up that we are used to. The Galaxy A30 will have a 16-megapixel primary sensor at an f/1.9 aperture and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture. The back of the phone will also have a conventional rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Galaxy A10 Specifications

The most budget-friendly and low tier model of the lineup is the Galaxy A10. The phone sports a slightly smaller 6.2-inch infinity V display. Unlike the other two phones, it has an FHD+ display as opposed to the SuperAMOLED screens. The phone will use an Exynos 7884B chipset clocked at 1.6GHz. The A10 will come in only one configuration with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Sadly, the phone has no fingerprint scanner at the back or in the display, meaning it will have to rely on proprietary Android Unlock methods such as patterns, PINs or face unlock systems. Considering it is a budget smartphone, it is not surprising from Samsung to make this sort of a move.

The phone will come with a single camera set up at the back. It will have a 13-megapixel sensor at f/1.9 aperture. Up front, in the notch, there will be a 5-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.0. The phone will have the same 4,000mAH battery as the other two phones but will have the outdated micro-USB charging port.

The A series lineup has us hyped about the upcoming phones. On paper, the phones seem powerful and should compete well in the ever growing market. After the launch of the Galaxy S10 at the MWC, these phones should be looked out for.
