Samsung revamped the Galaxy A series this year to launch a flurry of budget and mid-range smartphones. These devices are doing incredibly well in markets like India. The company is now preparing to bring a handful of them to North America. The Galaxy A20, A50 and the A70 are arriving in Canada later this week, followed by the US sometime later on.
The Galaxy A20, the most affordable of the three, features a 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-V display, a 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging, and a dual rear camera setup. It is powered by the Exynos 7884 SoC, coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage space.
The Galaxy A50, which is the most value-for-money Samsung mid-ranger yet, is the company’s first non-flagship phone with an optical in-display fingerprint sensor. It features a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display and packs the same 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging as the A20. Under the hood is an Exynos 9610 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. The Galaxy A50 also features a triple rear camera setup.
The Galaxy A70 (review), meanwhile, features a huge 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display and also packs a bigger 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging. It is powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC and comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. It also gets an optical in-display fingerprint sensor, along with a 32MP primary lens on the triple rear camera setup.
