KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 ̵
The new Galaxy A series continues to target young, knowledgeable young people who demand a lot from their devices and do not pay unreasonable prices for them. Chinese smartphone manufacturers have been very successful in attracting this group, and now Samsung has a strong response.
The Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A30 pack high quality 6.4 inch screens, large 4000mAh fast-charge batteries, USB type C ports, up to triple rear cameras and run on the latest Android Pie OS with Samsung's One UI out box.
In addition, both the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy A30 have Super AMOLED displays, Samsung's premium display technology, which is usually not available for designing at this price point. Compared to standard TFT LCDs, Super AMOLED displays have better color saturation, deeper black, wider viewing angles, and better power consumption.
The higher model of the two is the Galaxy A50. Powered by Octa-core Exynos 9610, the most powerful mid-range processor currently manufactured by Samsung, the South Korean company also decided to bring in the higher spec model to Malaysia that packs 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of extended storage.
The Galaxy A50's cameras are designed to provide plenty of versatility. The selfie camera is a large 25MP sensor hidden on the "Infinity-U" screen of the screen, while the rear camera setting is more interesting. It is a triple sensor set with a 25MP sensor, an 8MP ultra-long angle sensor and a 5MP depth sensor that enables Live Focus mode for shallow depth of field.
Interestingly, Samsung has a sub-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy A50. It is not the same ultrasonic sensor found on the flagship Galaxy S10 models, but the one mounted on the A50 is an optical fingerprint sensor that uses light from the display to map the finger.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy A30 has a little lower hardware that matches the price. It is powered by the Exynos 7904 hexagon core with 4 GB of RAM, and "only" 64 GB of expandable storage. The rear camera has a dual 16MP head and a 5MP ultra-wide sensor, while the selfie camera is a 16MP shooter. Finally, the Galaxy A30 uses a capacitive fingerprint scanner located on the back of the phone.
None of everything here would do anything if Samsung did not praise these devices right. Just as Samsung was a surprise with the RM799 Galaxy M20, the Galaxy A30 and A50 are surprisingly affordable – especially considering how much Samsung's mid-sized smartphones were priced.
The Samsung Galaxy A30 is sold for RM799, while the Galaxy A50 is a surprising RM1,199. Both models are available nationwide directly and in three colors: Black, White and Blue.
