Galaxy A50s set to launch in India on September 11

In a bid to stay competitive in the budget and mid-range smartphone segments, Samsung has been launching slightly modified variants of its existing A series devices. The Galaxy A50 was launched just around six months back, but the Korean company has already announced an upgraded version last month in the form of Galaxy A50s.

Going by the teasers on Samsung India’s social media accounts, it appears the Galaxy A50s is set to launch in the country on September 11. Through a social media contest, the company also confirmed the presence of Samsung Pay and Night Mode in the A50s. Though not explicitly stated in the teasers, the A50s will most probably offer MST-based Samsung Pay since it is supposed to be an upgrade to the existing A50.

To recap the specs, the Galaxy A50s is identical to the A50, except for the upgraded cameras and Samsung Pay. It comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, in-display fingerprint scanner, Exynos 9610 SoC, triple-camera array (48MP + 8MP + 5MP) on the back, 32MP selfie camera, 4GB/6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB internal storage, 4,000mAh battery, 15W fast charging, and Android 9 Pie with One UI on top.

Currently, it is not clear if the Galaxy A30s, which was unveiled along with the A50s, will also make its debut in the subcontinent. We are inclined to believe it does. Apart from India, both the devices are also slated to go on sale in Vietnam very soon.
