Launch of new Galaxy A series in India set for February 28
Samsung has revealed (through a notice in the Samsung Members app) that it will be launching its new Galaxy A series lineup in India on February 28th. The Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, and Galaxy A30 are expected to be the first devices in the series according to rumors, and it seems the company will make them official just a day after it is going to unveil the Galaxy M30.
It isn’t surprising that Samsung has chosen India as the launchpad for the 2019 A series, as the company is hoping to turn the A series into the country’s biggest brand, with an aim to achieve $4 billion in sales till the end of 2019 from just the new Galaxy A phones. The Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, and Galaxy A30 should be similar to the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and Galaxy M30, with Infinity-U/Infinity-V displays, multiple rear cameras, and big batteries all around. At least the A20 and A30 may also have AMOLED displays.
We may also see the Galaxy A50 make an appearance soon, as photos of the device were discovered in the phone’s service manual recently. However, it remains to be seen if the A50 will make its first appearance in India. With features like an in-display fingerprint sensor and triple rear cameras, the A50 probably isn’t going to be as affordable as the rest of Samsung’s 2019 lineup of mid-range and budget phones.
We’ll find out soon enough, though, as February 28 is fast approaching. Samsung will be holding launch events in three major cities for fans, and iterested folks can register their interest in the Samsung Members app.
Thanks for the tip, Chirag!
