The Galaxy A50 will be available for buying for Euros 349 which roughly translates to around Rs 28,000, Samsung Netherlands has confirmed. The Galaxy A50 has been launched in two configurations – 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage. The price tag quoted by Samsung Netherlands is possibly for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant although it does not explicitly say that. Should that be the case, the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant will obviously cost more.
Samsung Netherlands will start selling the Galaxy A50 from mid-March which is also the timeline for the phone’s global rollout as confirmed by Samsung’s South Korean arm. In India, we can expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy A50 at around Rs 25,000 and the phone should be available for buying from mid-March here as well – in line with its global release.
Samsung launched the Galaxy A50 at MWC 2019 on Monday, alongside another Galaxy A phone called the Galaxy A30. The pricing of the Galaxy A30 is a mystery for now, but it should likely be priced less than the Galaxy A50 – which is the more premium of the two phones. Both the phones are expected to be launched in India on February 28.
The Galaxy A50 packs a big Infinity-U screen and big 4,000mAh battery under the hood – in addition to an all-new 3D ‘glasstic’ design.
The phone comes with a 6.4-inch 1080p+ Super AMOLED display and a 2.3Ghz octa-core Exynos 9610 processor with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage which is expandable. It comes with three rear cameras consisting of one 25MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. On the front, the Galaxy A50 comes with a 25MP camera. The Galaxy A50 is also the first Galaxy A phone to ship with an in-display fingerprint scanner although Samsung isn’t saying if it is ultrasonic like the one on-board the Galaxy S10.
Samsung has already started teasing the Galaxy A50 in India through a dedicated notify-me landing page. The landing page reveals numerous teaser posters highlighting the phone’s key features – the biggest being its ultra-wide and slow-motion video recording capabilities.
