Today Samsung officially took the wraps off the Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s – incremental updates, as signified by the names, but an important ones nonetheless – the Galaxy A50 is Samsung’s best-selling A series phone.
Samsung has redesigned the rear panel of the Galaxy A50s to include a geometric pattern and holographic effect that comes in four finishes – Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green and Prism Crush Violet2.
What’s also new are the cameras. The Galaxy A50s brings a new 48MP f/2.0 main camera paired to the old 5MP depth and 8MP 123-degree ultrawide modules.
The selfie camera has been upgraded from 25MP f/2.0 to a 32MP f/2.0 unit.
Otherwise the Galaxy A50s is an exact match to its namesake A50. Up front there’s a 6.4-inch 1080x2340px Infinity-U Super AMOLED. The Galaxy A50s uses a 10nm Exynos 9610 octa-core chipset with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast-charging and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Samsung is yet to announce availability and price.

The Samsung Galaxy A30s also gains the new design and comes in the same four colors. The rear camera gets a new 25MP f/1.7 main unit (up from 16MP) and a new 8MP ultrawide module paired to the old 5MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is unchanged at 16MP f/2.0.
Another added feature is the in-display fingerprint scanner – the old phone had a rear-mounted one.
The Galaxy A30s has a 6.4-inch Infinity-V Super AMOLED of 720x1560px resolution, which is a downgrade from the 1080p panel of the original A30. It packs a 14nm Exynos 7904 octa-core chipset with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and a 4,000mAh battery with 15W charging.
