Samsung has launched the Galaxy A20s in India. India has been ground zero for many of the Korean giant’s 2019 Galaxy A series phones, and it is also one of the first to be seeing the Galaxy A20s go on sale. Like ‘s’ iterations of other A series phones, the A20s gets a rear panel with an updated design and a camera upgrade. It also gets a higher storage variant and a Snapdragon chipset instead of the Exynos chip that powered the Galaxy A20.
The Galaxy A20s comes with a 6.5-inch Infinity-V display – the screen is bigger by 0.1 inches than the A20 but it’s not a Super AMOLED panel. The Snapdragon 450, which has eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and the Adreno 506 GPU, is accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage on the base variant and 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage on the top-tier variant. At the back, the A20’s 13MP primary camera and 8MP ultra-wide camera have been joined by a 5MP depth camera for enabling enhanced bokeh pictures.
The selfie camera remains an 8MP unit, and the 4,000 mAh battery has carried over intact as well, along with support fo 15W fast charging. The A20s has a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, and on the software front, it runs Android Pie with Samsung One UI. It is likely to get updated to Android 10 at some point, as is every other Galaxy A series phone launched this year.
The Galaxy A20s will be sold in India in black, green, and blue for Rs. 11,999 (~$170) for the 3GB+32GB configuration and Rs. 13,999 (~$198) for the 4GB+64GB configuration. The latter is priced the same as the Galaxy M30s, which is a much better phone in pretty much every aspect. It remains to be seen when Samsung will actually start selling the A20s – the device was said to be going on sale on October 5, but it has not yet been listed on major online retailers or the company’s own online store.
