Galaxy A50s Design and Features
Like its predecessors, the Galaxy A50s has glass on the front and a polycarbonate back. However, instead of a solid colour rear panel, the new device has a holographic design which looks very elegant. The handset measures 158.5 x 74.7 x 7.7 mm and it tips the scale at 169g.
The front of the Samsung Galaxy A50s accommodates a 6.4-inch Infinity U display. The display on the devices uses a Super AMOLED panel that has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 px. Like the Galaxy A50, it also features an in-display fingerprint scanner. The power button and volume rockers are situated on the right side of the device while the SIM card tray is placed on the left side.
The rear glasstic panel of Galaxy A50 has a triple rear camera setup which is comprised of a 48 MP + 5 MP + 8 MP sensors. It also features an f/2.0 aperture equipped 25 MP front camera which is placed in the Infinity U notch above the display.
It is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery which supports 15 W fast charging via the bottom-mounted USB Type-C port. Under the hood, the Galaxy A50s packs the Exynos 9610 chipset which consists of four Cortex A73 cores, four A53 cores and Mali G72 MP3 GPU. Connectivity options on the handset include 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and 3.5 mm audio jack.
Unfortunately, Samsung has not revealed the price of either the Galaxy A50s or the Galaxy A30s. Nonetheless, it is expected to be announced at the upcoming IFA Berlin convention which will kick off from the 6th of September.
Although the new smartphone is not a huge upgrade but improved optics and all new holographic rear panel are a welcoming addition.
