The Samsung Galaxy A30 & A50 Bring Serious Competition To The Midrange Market In Malaysia

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Samsung’s recent aggressive push into the midrange smartphone market doesn’t stop with the Galaxy M20 as Samsung Malaysia has also announced the arrival of the next generation of their Galaxy A Series phones - the Galaxy A30 and A50.

Sitting on the other end of the price spectrum compared to the usual flagships, the Galaxy A30 and A50 will greatly appeal to budget-seekers especially young smartphone users with their myriad of features. Both phones feature Samsung’s Infinity-U displays with a tiny notch taking its place at the upper middle display. They will also provide great battery life with their 4,000mAh batteries (on paper at least).

While they also share the same display size, the Galaxy A50 has a triple rear cameras setup as opposed to the Galaxy A30’s dual rear cameras, in which both sets include an ultra-wide lens . But perhaps the biggest thing going on for the Galaxy A50 is the inclusion of an under-display fingerprint scanner, a new feature by Samsung that recently just made its debut on the flagship Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+.

Here’s the key specs for both devices:
