Earlier this year, Samsung rolled out its Galaxy S10 family of devices which include the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G. However, those are rather expensive flagships starting at $749. For those that don't have that kind of money to blow on a smartphone, Samsung is bringing its three members of its latest mid-range Galaxy A-Series family to the United States.
The most potent of the three new smartphones is the Galaxy A50, which comes with a rather large 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340x1080) Infinity-U display. The small, centrally-mounted notch houses a 25MP selfie camera, while out back, it has a triple camera setup (25MP 4/1.7, 8MP f/2.2, 5MP f/2.2). An octa-core Exynos SoC is running the show, and it is fueled by a 4,000 mAh battery.
Other features include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD that supports expansion up to 512GB, and a trendy in-display fingerprint reader. Samsung says that the Galaxy A50 will be priced at $349 when it launches June 13th on Verizon Wireless. It will be available to all other major wireless carriers later this summer.
The other two members of the Galaxy A family that are coming stateside include the Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A10e. The Galaxy A20 also features a 6.4-inch display, but it is classified as Infinity-V. It will come standard with a 4000 mAh battery, 32GB of internal storage, and a 13MP primary camera out back. The Galaxy A10e is the smallest member of the family with a 5.83-inch Infinity-V display, a smaller 3000 mAh battery, 8MP rear camera and 32GB of storage.
The Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A10e are priced at $249 and $179 respectively, while availability will be announced in the coming weeks according to Samsung.
