After launching the online-exclusive Galaxy M series, Samsung is now focusing on the offline market in India by releasing new Galaxy A series smartphones. In line with all the previous reports, the company has announced the Galaxy A10, A30, and A50 in the country today. Of these three models, the Galaxy A30 and A50 already made their debut at the MWC in Barcelona last week. While all of them share many similarities with the recent Galaxy M models, they boast slightly different specifications and are priced comparatively higher to accommodate retailer margins.
Beginning with the Galaxy A10, it comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ Infinity-V display, Exynos 7884 SoC, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie shooter, 3,400mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie with Samsung’s One UI on top. It is priced at INR 8,490 (~$120) and will be available in red, blue, and black color options.
The Galaxy A30, as we know already, sports a 6.4-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, Exynos 7904 SoC, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, dual-camera setup on the back, rear-mounted fingerprint reader, 4,000mAh battery with support for fast charging, and Android 9 Pie with One UI. Samsung will be selling only the 4GB/64GB storage variant of the A30 in India. It will be available in the same colors as the A10 and carries a price tag of INR 16,990 (~$240).
Evident from the model number, the Galaxy A50 is the most premium and powerful of the three devices and is the first Samsung midranger to pack an in-display fingerprint reader. It has the same display, battery capacity, and runs the same One UI with Android 9 Pie underneath as the A30. Other specs include triple cameras on the back, Exynos 9610 chipset, 4GB/6GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage. The A50 will be sold in white, blue, and black color options for INR 19,990 (~$280) for the 4GB/64GB variant and INR 22,990 (~$325) for the 6GB/64GB variant.
All the three models will be available for purchase in India, both in online and offline channels, from March 2 onwards.
