    Galaxy A50 could come with 4,000 mAh battery and 24MP camera

    With the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung finally gave us a big battery on a (mainstream) flagship device. Big batteries on mid-range and budget Galaxies have been less rare, but 2019 may see the Korean giant further pushing battery sizes on mid-range and budget phones. The Galaxy M20 is rumored to have a 5,000 mAh battery, and in the upcoming A series lineup, Samsung may be putting a 4,000 mAh battery on the Galaxy A50, according to GalaxyClub.

    Samsung going on the offensive with smartphone battery sizes?

    That would make the Galaxy A50's battery bigger than the Galaxy A9 (2018)'s (3,800 mAh) and the Galaxy A8 Star's (3,700 mAh), and also the Galaxy A8+ (2018), which has a 3,500 mAh battery. The 4,000 mAh battery should offer impressive endurance, especially with Android Pie's battery improvements. Yes, the A50 will run Pie out of the box, as revealed by its Geekbench benchmark. As a result, the Galaxy A50 isn't expected to make its debut before the Galaxy S10, although Samsung will likely benefit from letting go of the tradition that sees the latest Galaxy S flagship being the first to get the most recent version of Android out of the box.

    According to GalaxyClub, the A50 will also come with a 24MP primary rear camera, same as many A series devices launched this year. As we had exclusively revealed, the phone will be offered in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. It will be powered by the Exynos 9610 and have at least 4GB of RAM. You can also expect to see an Infinity-O or Infinity-V display on the Galaxy A50, possibly with a fingerprint sensor underneath.
