Samsung's new mid-range smartphone series set to launch next week
Samsung introduced the Galaxy A 2019 series back in February. Naturally, it was assumed that the company would refresh the lineup in February 2020. However, it looks like Samsung is jumping the gun and releasing the Galaxy A 2020 series as soon as next week.
Samsung Vietnam has put out a video teasing the launch of the Galaxy A 2020 series on December 12. The video doesn’t reveal much about the new A series phones, but shows a device with a centered punch-hole on the display.
If leaks are anything to go by, the Galaxy A51 could be the first phone in the new Galaxy A 2020 series. The phones is the rumored successor to 2019’s Galaxy A50, which we dubbed Samsung’s best mid-ranger at the time.
An exclusive report from 91Mobiles previously revealed that Samsung will launch the mid-range Galaxy A51 in India in December. The Galaxy A51 has also been spotted in an FCC listing and its renders were leaked last month. The phone was seen featuring an Infinity-O display, similar to the one seen in the new Galaxy A 2020 teaser.
The Galaxy A51 is rumored to feature a 6.5-inch OLED display. The back of the device will reportedly feature an L-shaped quad-camera camera array. This setup is expected to house a 48MP sensor and a 5MP macro lens. A 32MP selfie camera is expected on the device.
Other rumored specs include: 4GB RAM, the Exynos 9611 SoC, 4,000mAh battery, and 64/128GB storage variants.
