Samsung today announced the launch of its 2020 Galaxy A-series lineup in the U.S. The lineup includes the Galaxy A01, Galaxy A11, Galaxy A21, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A51 5G, and Galaxy A71 5G. While the Galaxy A01, Galaxy A11, and Galaxy A51 were announced earlier this year, the Galaxy A21, Galaxy A51 5G, and Galaxy A71 5G are all-new devices.
The Galaxy A51 5G and A71 5G are Samsung’s very first 5G-enabled mid-range phones. In terms of specs, the Galaxy A51 5G is largely identical to the LTE variant. It comes with a 6.5-inch FHD+ Infinity-O display, 48MP quad rear cameras, and a 4000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. Under the hood, however, the phone runs on an 8nm Exynos 980 chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. It will be available in the U.S. starting at $500 later this summer. The LTE variant of the phone, on the other hand, will go on sale starting April 9 for $400.
Samsung Galaxy A71 5G features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Infinity-O display, 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging, and a quad-camera system with a 64MP primary sensor. Just like the A51 5G, the Galaxy A71 5G is powered by an Exynos 980 chipset. It will be available later this summer for $600. These phones provide a good balance to the Galaxy S20 lineup that introduced 5G but at a much higher price point.
