Samsung A50,A30 and A10
The Samsung Galaxy A50₹ 19,990 and Galaxy A30₹ 16,990 can be seen as improved versions of the M-series in terms of features. Samsung is aiming all these phones at the same millennial audience, but the A-series models feel a little more premium. The Galaxy A50₹ 19,990, while still relatively affordable, trades specifications such as RAM and storage for a super AMOLED screen with an Infinity-U notch and fingerprint sensor under the glass, and three rear cameras. The Galaxy A30 is less differentiated in terms of features, and makes do with a standard fingerprint sensor and dual-camera module on the rear, but has the same screen.
Both Samsung Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A30 look and feel very slick. They’re very sculpted, with curved-edge glass on the front meeting the frame without any sharp edges or seams. The Galaxy A50 has a “3D prism” design on the rear which refracts and scatters light, creating unique patterns when you look at it from different angles. Visually, it has a sense of depth, and the black unit we were able to spend time with looked more like grey with reds, greens and blues slightly visible at the edges. You have to see this finish yourself to really appreciate it. The Galaxy A50 will also be available in white and blue.
