The Samsung Galaxy A50 specifications and features have leaked online. The new member of the Galaxy A-Series is an interesting Android smartphone that packs mid-range hardware. However, Samsung’s recent decision to introduce new features in budget and mid-range handsets could significantly influence the Galaxy A50.
News and reports about the Samsung Galaxy A50 started appearing very recently. In fact, the device was nowhere on the radar until the last week of December, 2018. But as the New Year begins, details about the capable mid-range Android handset have started to emerge. The device surprisingly appears quite similar to the recently launched Samsung Galaxy A8s smartphone. However, the design elements and aesthetics of the device appear influenced by Samsung naming and branding policies. Let’s look at the available specifications, features, expected launch, price and availability of the Samsung Galaxy A50
Samsung Galaxy A50 Specifications, Features
The Samsung Galaxy A50 is a mid-range Android smartphone. Still, the device will benefit from the AMOLED display technology that Samsung usually reserves for its upper mid-range and premium or flagship mobile phones. According to previous reports, the Galaxy A50 could have a 6-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. The new report adds to the information by claiming the device may not feature a notch display. Instead, the A50 will have sport a rectangular display, with all the sensors as well as the earpiece sitting comfortably at the rather ample space above the display.
The leaked specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A50 corroborate the earlier information about the device getting the Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 9610 processor. The capable mid-range SoC is fabricated on the 10nm production process. The octa-core processor gets four fast Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex A53 cores running at 1.6GHz.
Additionally, the SoC utilizes a new neural network, presumably what Samsung was working on dedicatedly for the Exynos 9820 processor. The NPU should allow better facial detection, and other imaging related functions. The processor can confidently support some premium features like recording in slow motion at up to 480FPS at up to Full HD (1080p) and 120FPS at 4K resolution.
The biggest highlight of the Samsung Galaxy A50 is the inclusion of 4,000mAh battery. Moreover, Samsung could easily deploy the next generation of Fast Charging technology as well. The other rumored features of the Galaxy A50 include 4GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of internal storage, dual rear camera setup with 24MP lens in primary camera, and dual 4G SIM support. Incidentally, the Samsung Galaxy A50 could arrive with Android 9 pie already installed, with One UI custom skin.
Samsung Galaxy A50 Expected Launch, Price, Availability
The latest report claims the Samsung Galaxy A50 won’t arrive before the Samsung Galaxy S10. In other words, interested buyers may have to wait until the second half of 2019 to purchase the handset.
Being a mid-range Android smartphone, the Galaxy A50 could sport an attractive price, possibly below INR 25,000. At this price, the device could compete against the POCO F1, Xiaomi Mi 8, and other handsets from Xiaomi, Oppo, Huawei, Nokia and Honor.
