Samsung is working on a new variant of the Galaxy A71 5G for Verizon’s network. According to a new report, the phone will be branded as the Galaxy A71s 5G UW. The ‘UW’ bit shows that the phone will support Verizon’s Ultrawide 5G network, which uses the mmWave 5G technology for faster download and upload speeds when compared to sub-6GHz 5G.
Although Verizon’s version of the smartphone (SM-A716V) would look like any other Galaxy A71 5G, it reportedly uses the Snapdragon 765 processor. If the information in this report is correct, the Galaxy A71s 5G UW will be the first phone with the Snapdragon 765 chipset to feature support for mmWave 5G networks.
The global variant of the Galaxy A71 5G features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and an optical fingerprint reader. Its 32MP selfie camera is hidden inside a punch-hole cutout in the top-center part of the screen. The smartphone uses an Exynos 980 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, and a microSD card slot.
The phone runs Android 10 with One UI 2.0. It has a quad-camera setup at the rear, featuring a 64MP primary camera sensor, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. It can record 4K 30fps videos. The Galaxy A71 5G is powered by a 4,500mAh battery and supports 25W fast charging via the USB Type-C port.
