Galaxy A50 leak reveals notched display and triple rear camera setup

The Galaxy M10 and M20 may have become Samsung’s first devices to feature a display notch, but certainly aren’t going to be the last. The upcoming Galaxy A50 may also have the Infinity-V display, housing the selfie camera in a waterdrop notch. A few live images of the Galaxy A50’s chassis have been leaked, revealing the notched display and a few more details.

Samsung has as many as nine Galaxy A phones in the works. All of these devices will be released in first half of 2019.

Galaxy A50 will have triple rear camera setup

The newly leaked images of the Galaxy A50’s chassis reveal that the device will sport three cameras at the back. There’s a long vertical cut-out at the top-right corner of the back panel, which should house the triple camera setup. The small hole just below would be for the LED flashlight. The Galaxy A50 is tipped to arrive with a 24MP primary rear camera.

Interestingly, there doesn’t seem to be any cut-out for a fingerprint sensor at the back, further adding to the rumors that it’ll come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The bottom edge of the back panel have cut-outs for a USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Another live image of the Galaxy A50’s chassis confirms that the device will arrive with a waterdrop notch. A small circular cut-out towards the centre of the top of the screen is clearly visible in the image. The cut-out should house the selfie camera, as in the Galaxy M10 and M20.

The Galaxy A50 may be powered by the Exynos 9610 SoC and will run Android Pie out of the box. It will have at least 4GB of RAM and may come in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. The device could also pack a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Samsung may unveil the new Galaxy A series in a couple of months.

Lools like 2019 is the year Samsung’s design has gone to the dogs. First the awful looks of the S10 line, now a bunch of notched abortions. Such a disappointment.

Well, if Samsung use the same symetrical bezel design again then Samsung will be finished. Samsung have no choice but to follow the stupid trend by adding the ugly notch and the awful top corner vertical camera placement. This trend is stupid but somehow that’s what most people like these days…

“This trend is stupid but somehow that’s what most people like these days…”

There’s absolutely zero evidence of this, though. Apart from some very specific markets (ie. China and India), notches are generally abhorred in most other countries. Samsung had that going for them and now they threw it away. It’s highly unlikely they’re going to get more customers by copying other OEM’s dumb moves. But they sure will lose some.

I wish S10 had that design.

Totally agree, this looks much more elegant than the punch hole in the S line. But still, I prefer a larger bezel with no cutouts. Hope that they will solve the “camera under the screen” technology for the upcoming Note10.

Maybe the only cut-out for the fingerprint reader could be on the glass back and not on the phone’s chassis
