While Samsung continues padding its Galaxy A (2019) mid-range smartphone lineup with new models like the Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s, the company is also laying down the foundations of its Galaxy A (2020) series and has seemingly done so for some time. The lineup could include up to nine models, according to a trademark filed a couple of months ago, and should accommodate devices such as the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71, both of which are now the subject of a fresh leak revealing their storage and color options.
Galaxy A51 and A71 storage and color options emerge
MySmartPrice recently reported on the Galaxy A51 and A71’s storage and color options, and in the meantime, we’ve been able to confirm with our own sources that the information is correct. The Galaxy A51 will be identified by the model number SM-A515 and will launch with 64GB and 128GB of storage in silver, black, and blue. The Galaxy A71 will unsurprisingly carry the model number SM-A715. The device will be offered with 128GB of storage and possibly other configurations that have yet to be confirmed. It will ship in black, silver, blue, as well as pink.
The 2019 Galaxy A50 and A70 were introduced in February and March, respectively, and it’s likely that the Galaxy A51 and A71 will be unveiled in the same timeframe next year. Early rumors suggest the Galaxy A (2020) lineup could benefit from drastic camera upgrades and hint at the inclusion of a ToF sensor for the Galaxy A71. This has yet to be confirmed by our sources but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we find out more. Samsung is also seemingly testing a new Exynos 9630 chipset which could end up lending its prowess to the Galaxy A51, but only time will tell if the device will continue offering excellent value for money like its predecessor did half a year ago.
Should ship with Android 10
Samsung is already testing Android 10 for the Galaxy Note 10, and by the time the Galaxy A (2020) series debuts early next year, Samsung will have already introduced Android 10 to a number of existing higher-end devices. It’s very likely that the entire Galaxy A (2020) series will ship with Android 10, much like the 2019 lineup shipped with Android 9 out of the box. At the very least, the Galaxy A71 was spotted on Geekbench a few weeks ago running Android 10, and the Galaxy A91 is also reportedly in development in conjunction with Google’s latest mobile OS version.
