Samsung’s latest updates to its Galaxy A line of smartphones include two new models with punch-hole displays, quad cameras on the back, and at least 6GB of RAM.
Update: Yep. Samsung made a global announcement just ahead of the start of the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 features a 6.5 inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display with an “Infinity-O” design, which means there’s a hole in the top center portion of the screen for a camera (in this case, a 32MP camera).
On the back of the phone, there are four cameras:
- 48MP primary
- 12MP ultra-wide angle (123 degrees)
- 5MP depth-sensing
- 5MP macro
The phone is powered by a Samsung Exynos 9611 processor and features 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a microSD card reader, a 4,000 mAh battery, and 15 watt fast charging support.
It goes up for pre-order in Vietnam next week and ships December 27th, with prices starting at around $350.
Samsung’s new Galaxy A71 has a similar design, but it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor and the primary camera on the back of the phone features a 64MP image sensor.
It’s also a slightly larger phone, with a 6.7 inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel display, and it has a bigger battery to match, at 4,500 mAh. The Galaxy A71 also supports speedier charging, thanks to 25 watt fast charging support.
I haven’t seen any pricing or availability details for the Galaxy A71 yet, but my guess would be… a little more than the A51.
