Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s, upgraded variants of the Galaxy A50 (review) and Galaxy A30 launched earlier this year. We’ve been hearing about ‘s’ variants of Samsung’s 2019 Galaxy A series lineup for quite some time, and the Galaxy A10s was the first of those devices to be unveiled. The A50s and A30s now join the list, with upgraded cameras the primary theme across both.

Higher-resolution cameras, more striking design

The Galaxy A50’s 25MP primary rear camera has been upgraded to a 48MP sensor on the Galaxy A50s while the 8MP ultra-wide and 5MP depth sensors have carried over unchanged. The A50s has a 32MP front camera, up from the A50’s 25MP camera. Other specs seem to be the same as the A50’s, like an octa-core processor (the Exynos 9610), 4GB/6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage, an on-screen fingerprint sensor, a 4,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging, and a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ Infinity-U display.

The Galaxy A30s now has a triple rear camera, and it looks like Samsung has simply equipped it with the Galaxy A50’s rear camera setup: a 25MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. Selfie resolution is still 16 megapixels. The A30s also gets an on-screen fingerprint sensor, and Samsung has added a 128GB storage option in addition to 32GB and 64GB. The display has been downgraded to a HD+ panel (the A30 has a Full HD+ display). The rest of the spec sheet includes an Exynos 7904 SoC, 3GB/4GB of RAM, and a 4,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging.

Pricing and release date not revealed

It’s also possible the Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s have the new One UI 1.5 from the Galaxy Note 10, as Samsung mentions that both devices have its new Game Booster feature, which debuted on the Note 10 and Note 10+. It’s possible only the Game Booster feature has made the cut for the new A series phones, and there’s no way of knowing without confirmation from Samsung or without checking out the actual devices.

The Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s come with an upgraded design at the back, with a “unique geometric pattern and futuristic holographic effect,” as Samsung calls them. Both phones will be sold in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green and Prism Crush Violet color options. Pricing and release date information is yet to be revealed.
