[Poll results!] What new features do you want on the 2021 Galaxy A series?
Samsung sells a lot of units from its Galaxy A series every year. Much like their predecessors, Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 have both proven to be very successful. Samsung even gave them separate 5G variants this year. We’re now looking forward to the 2021 models of the Galaxy A series and there’s still a long wishlist of features that many Samsung fans would like to see on these handsets.
The Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 will likely be among the first 2021 Galaxy A handsets to be unveiled. While it’s unclear exactly when that will happen, chances are that we will start hearing some official information about the 2021 Galaxy A series towards the end of this year.
Samsung introduced the 120Hz refresh rate on its smartphones for the first time this year. It has only been limited to flagship devices so far. Although marketed as a flagship, the Galaxy S20 FE also has a 120Hz refresh rate display and it only costs a hundred dollars more than the Galaxy A71 5G. So it’s within reason to expect this feature to trickle down.
With many Chinese brands touting ultra fast charging speeds, a lot of fans would prefer seeing faster wired charging speeds on the Galaxy A handsets as well. Others may prefer ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensors found on Samsung flagships that are a tad bit better than the optical sensors currently in use.
Cameras have been a core area of focus for Samsung’s premium mid-range phones. The lack of a telephoto (zoom) camera has been sorely felt. Samsung fans will be very happy if a dedicated zoom camera is offered as well. There are reports that the Galaxy A72 could have a penta-camera setup which will include a 3x zoom telephoto camera.
