Samsung announced its S10 high-end models only a few days ago, but the Korean company also caters for those who cannot or do not want to spend flagship money on a smartphone and still want a decent mobile camera.
The newly announced A30 and A50 smartphones are mid-range models that put a lot of emphasis on the camera. The A50 comes with a triple-camera setup on the back. A 25MP primary module with F1.7 aperture is accompanied by an 8MP super-wide-angle and a 5MP depth sensor for creating a simulated bokeh effect, which both come with a F2.2 aperture lens. The 25MP front camera offers a simulated bokeh effect as well.
The A30 has a dual main camera. A 16MP/F1.7 primary camera can be found next to a 5MP super-wide-angle with F2.2 aperture. The front camera has a 16MP pixel count.
On both devices images can be viewed and edited on an edge-to-edge 6.4” Super AMOLED FullHD+ display and batteries have a 4,000mAh capacity and fast-charging capabilties. The A30 will be available in two versions, either with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The A50 comes as a 4/64GB variant or with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Both phones offer a microSD slot that can take cards up to 512GB.
No pricing information has been released yet but expect the new A-series models to be a good few hundred dollars less expensive than the S10 series.
