Samsung announces two new mid-range Galaxy A phones focusing on cameras

Samsung announced two new mid-range phones in the Galaxy A, A30 and A50 series. Phones were first discovered on the Samsung website in India, and it looks like invitations were sent to a press conference in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Calcutta on February 28th. This is Samsung's push against the market share lost in India for Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi, whose cheaper phones with competitive features are becoming increasingly popular in the country.

Cameras are one of the main accents of both the A30 and A50. The A50 has three cameras at the back: the main 25-megapixel main camera, an 8 megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens (which the phone would reasonably recommend you use depending on what you are shooting), and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The front also boasts a 25 megapixel camera with special focus for blurring the background. The A30 has two rear-facing cameras — a 16-megapixel main lens and a 5 megapixel wide-angle lens — along with a 16-megapixel camera in front.

Both phones have a fingerprint sensor, but while the A50 is on the screen, the A30 is on the back panel. Samsung's announcement mentions that face recognition can also unlock the A30, but that doesn’t mean that the A50 has it.

Samsung claims that the phones are made from 3D Glasstic, portmanto, made of glass and plastic, and they will have a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display from edge to edge. Infinity-U is the term for Samsung for its cut design, which is almost identical to the design of the Essential Phone with a small, semi-circular cut.

Some other details: the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A30 have 4000 mAh fast charging batteries. The A30 comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB or 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB, and the A50 can be with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB. Both can increase the memory up to 512 GB using microSD.

Samsung and Xiaomi occupy a dominant position in the Indian market, together occupying about 60 percent of the mobile phone market in the country. Over the past year, the presence of both companies in India has increased, but, in particular, Xiaomi experienced a significant jump: from 18 percent of the market share to 30. At that time, Canalys analyst Tuan An Nguyen said in a statement that Samsung focused on "Retreating” against Xiaomi: "The company has released devices directly related to the Xiaomi portfolio, and focuses on its cameras and image capabilities."

Pricing and availability have not yet been released for either the Galaxy A30 or the A50.
