s ince last year, Samsung has been experimenting a lot with its mid-range Galaxy A-series. In a bid to bolster sales and take on companies like OnePlus, Samsung began introducing new technologies like triple and quad cameras with its Galaxy A phones before bringing them to its flagship phones. This along with a switch to glass and metal design has allowed phones like the Galaxy A7 and A9 to look more premium and in line with modern sensibilities. Samsung is taking that same philosophy and is applying it to its affordable phones like the Galaxy M30 (Review), M20 (Review) and the newly launched Galaxy A50, A30 and A10.
Among the new Galaxy A-series phones launched this year, the Galaxy A50 is by far the most interesting device. Reason being the Galaxy A50 offers plenty of premium features at a price that starts just under Rs 20,000. The Galaxy A50 brings a gorgeous design coupled with a stunning AMOLED Infinity-U display, triple rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor and a powerful Exynos chipset, which potentially makes it a great all-rounder in this segment.
Galaxy A50 Design
Samsung has given up on the all-metal design for its smartphones, opting either for glass or plastic designs instead. It’s a natural progression, and one Samsung had to take to make its phones look and feel like they belong in 2019. The Galaxy A50 goes with a 3D plastic panel on the back that nicely curves around the sides and seamlessly meets the frame. It a good quality plastic being used here that feels premium and almost glass-like to the touch. It is smooth to the touch, but not quite slippery which is a good thing.
