As suggested in the recent teasers, Samsung has launched the Galaxy A50s and A30s in India today. Both these mid-range devices were unveiled by the company last month itself, but pricing and availability information was not revealed at the time of the announcement. India is one of the first markets to get these new models from Samsung.
The Galaxy A50s is a slightly upgraded version of the existing A50, as evident from the spec sheet below. Samsung has bumped up the resolution of the primary cameras and added NFC-based Samsung Pay to differentiate the A50s. It also sports a “newer” Exynos 9611 SoC and comes with Night Mode and Super Steady camera features.
Similarly, the Galaxy A30s is also a minor upgrade to the A30 with an in-display fingerprint reader, higher-resolution primary camera, and NFC-based Samsung Pay. Strangely, the A30s sports a lower-resolution display than the A30, making the former a downgrade for some customers. Both the Galaxy A50s and A30s come with AI-powered Game Booster for improved gaming experience.
The Galaxy A50s is priced at Rs. 22,999 for the 4GB/128GB storage variant and Rs. 24,999 for the 6GB/128GB memory configuration. The Galaxy A30s, meanwhile, costs Rs. 16,999 for the 4GB/64GB version. There is also a 4GB/128GB configuration that will be available for purchase later.
The Galaxy A50s and A30s come in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, and Prism Crush Violet color options with “unique geometric patterns” and a holographic effect on the back. Both the models are already available for purchase at various online and offline stores in India.
